Happiness /Felicidad


EN:
Are we happy?
Happiness is the ultimate goal everybody has it. It is the motor for our decisions and actions. It is why I put my head on pillow in night to wake up in the morning with one step forward my happiness. I have hope for it. I can feel more close to it sometimes but also other times more far from it. But are we really happy? Is there a moment even a second we feel we would not want anything more?
We transform it as a high limit for our present state of mind. Is happiness of a cleaner worker same as for a bank director? At first the answer would be of course not and you are inclined to give the bank director the status of "more happy". How you know that is true? You never know people's feeling which can be totally different than what it looks. The cleaner may be very much happy and in peace with his life when bank director is very unhappy in personal life. As much the knowledge that much much the expectations raises and the state of so called happiness with it. But happiness should be simple, it does not relate to object or facts, it should be just a state if the soul. The soul that everybody has it, the soul that is always there with us and never changes no matter what we do with our lifes, it has no real method of comparison between other souls. No matter what you accomplished in life if your spirit is not satisfied within it is worthless.
Look at a child, why it is always happy? Because his mind was not yet educated to follow some prototypes dreams, meanwhile his soul is free to enjoy truthfully the gift of life.
But we have to live with the believe of a happiness, it is what gives us straight for going on in life.
I have faith that one day I can find the lost key to unlock the door that keeps a barricade between my soul and my mind. Then I will learn my real happiness. Meanwhile I spoil my pride with the happiness I own at the present moment which will not last much as I will improve my state of mind.

ES:
¿Somos felices?
La felicidad es el objetivo final que todo el mundo lo tiene. Es el motor de nuestras decisiones y acciones. Es por eso que pongo mi cabeza sobre mi almohada en la noche para despertarse por la mañana con un paso adelante mi felicidad. Tengo la esperanza de ella. Puedo sentir más cerca de ella a veces, pero también otras veces más lejos de ella. Pero estamos muy contentos? ¿Hay un momento aún un segundo que sentimos que no quieremos nada más?
Lo transformamos en un límite superior de nuestro estado de ánimo actual. ¿Es la felicidad de un limpiador mismo que para un director de banco? Al principio la respuesta sería no, por supuesto, y que están dispuestos a dar el director del banco el estado de "más feliz". ¿Cómo sabes que es verdad? Nunca se sabe sentimientos de las personas que pueden ser totalmente diferentes de lo que parece. El limpiador puede ser muy feliz y en paz con su vida cuando el director del banco es muy infeliz en su vida personal. Tanto saber leventa mucho las expectativas y eleva el estado de felicidad o como lo llamamos. Pero la felicidad debe ser simple, no se refiere a objetos o hechos, debe ser sólo un estado pero de alma. El alma que todo el mundo lo tiene, el alma que siempre está ahí con nosotros y nunca cambia, no importa lo que hacemos con nuestras vidas, que no tiene ningún método real de comparación entre las otras almas. No importa lo que has logrado en la vida si su espíritu no se satisface en sí no tiene valor.
Mira a un niño, ¿por qué siempre es feliz? Porque su mente no fue educado todavía siguiendo algunos sueños de prototipo, mientras su alma es libre para disfrutar de verdad el don de la vida.
Pero tenemos que vivir con la creencia de una felicidad, que es lo que nos da derecho para ir en la vida.
Tengo fe en que algún día pueda encontrar la llave perdida para abrir la puerta que mantiene una barrera entre mi alma y mi mente. Entonces, voy a aprender mi verdadera felicidad. Mientras tanto, me despojo de mi orgullo con la felicidad que tengo en este momento que no va a durar tanto despues que voy a mejorar mi estado de ánimo.

We all need someone to look at us

We all need someone to look at us. We can be divided into four categories according to the kind of look we wish to live under. The first category longs for the look of an infinite number of anonymous eyes, in other words, for the look of the public. The second category is made up of people who have a vital need to be looked at by many known eyes. They are the tireless hosts of cocktail parties and dinners. They are happier than the people in the first category, who, when they lose their public, have the feeling that the lights have gone out in the room of their lives. This happens to nearly all of them sooner or later. People in the second category, on the other hand, can always come up with the eyes they need. Then there is the third category, the category of people who need to be constantly before the eyes of the person they love. Their situation is as dangerous as the situation of people in the first category. One day the eyes of their beloved will close, and the room will go dark. And finally there is the fourth category, the rarest, the category of people who live in the imaginary eyes of those who are not present. They are the dreamers.
