Points to Ponder ~ Puzzles

The problems of puzzles are very near the problems of life, our whole life is solving puzzles. If you are hungry, you have to find something to eat. But everyday problems are very mixed – they’re not clear. The Cube’s problem depends just on you. You can solve it independently. But to find happiness in life, you’re not independent. That’s the only big difference. 

– Erno Rubik (creator of the Rubik’s Cube)

But I want to be and I want my happiness to be independent of anyone else! I want no one else to touch it or to affect it. That’s a tough lesson to learn, a tougher path to follow and, while I really hope I do, I don’t know if I’ll ever get there. But, rest assured, I’m going to try my damnedest.

    Ponderous comment: The difference lies in “looking” for happiness and being a happy person. “Finding” happiness implies that you don’t have it and are looking for it elsewhere and not within you.
    I would say happiness comes from within, basically knowing who you are and feeling good about who you and having a positive attitude. With these qualities we can handle what life throws at us and be able to have fulfilling experiences in our relationships, whether personal and professional.

      We aren’t all born wise and happy, so yes, even if happiness is within us sometimes we must seek it to find it. When I say happiness comes from within, I mean we have to find it in ourselves and in our own actions–and yes, i do mean “find.” It doesn’t mean we’re looking for it elsewhere, it simply means we’re on a journey within ourselves, we’re discovering who we are and what makes us happy and, in the process, finding happiness. :)

        Well, I don’t know if we are not born wise and happy and somewhere along the way lose it and then begin a journey of finding it. I have a suspicion we may be, seeing as how babies seem to accomplish a lot while seeming so helpless. :-) They send people into tizzies when they smile and must enjoy all the foolish antics adults engage in when playing with them. I will have to think about that one ;-)
        That being said, you are right, in the aspect that you mention finding happiness makes sense.
