happiness...all we need is love - what is love? onnellisuus, onni... ja laulu kuuluu: all we need is love - mutta mitä rakkaus on?

I asked you, what is happiness?

You said:
- one feels emotionally good inside.
- happiness is what makes me smile, what makes me laugh, what I am in awe of, what I find beautiful...
- Happiness to me is hanging out with my boys
- In some ways, it seems a sense that comes and goes.In some other way, it seems to be there all the time.- I do know that feeling healthy is a kind of happiness...
- Happiness is a warm ray of sun in April. Happiness is when your fever goes away. Happiness is the smile of someone you have made happy... Happiness is lots of little things. It's a wonderful feeling
- Happiness for me is when my family and friends are healthy and best if they are with me


This is what Sirokko said.
The translation is made by google and I just ‘fine-tuned’ it a little bit...

"Happiness ... the cell phone certainly feels the same when you put it to charge its battery...it is a moment when suddenly a warm flow meets the body and soul from toes to hair root, only close your eyes and be spellbound about the feeling and try to store it in every cell and notice that right now this is wonderful - I am. It will persist long ahead... to the next charge of the battery."


I think happiness is a state of mind.
The last couple of days, I have been sick and weak, I lost that happy state of mind.
I felt only the vulnerability and the need to rest.
I asked myself - what is happiness.
Now, when I feel almost "normal" I feel happiness again.
Happiness does not come from the outside.
Although my husband was very kind it didn’t make me happy or changed my state of mind.
I needed the 'suffering' to feel happiness again. Here I am and life goes on.



Mytho answered my question about happiness
"A crazy little thing called love?"

Now I ask you
What is love?
Kysyin teiltä, mitä on onni, onnellisuus?
Joillekin se on perheen tai perheenjäsenten kanssa/läsnä -olemista.
Joillekin se on hetki tai hetkiä elämässä.

Sirokko kirjoitti näin:
"Onni...kännykkä varmasti tuntee samoin kun sen laittaa lataukseen...se on hetki jolloin yhtäkkiä lämmin hyvänolon virtaus täyttää ruumiin ja sielun varpaista hiusjuureen, voi vain sulkea silmänsä ja haltioitua siitä tunteesta, yrittää varastoida sitä joka soluunsa ja huomata että juuri nyt tässä on ihanaa - minä olen. Sillä jaksaa taas pitkälle...seuraavaan lataukseen asti."

Minusta onnellisuus on mielen tila.

Viimeiset pari päivää, olen ollut sairas ja heikko, kadotin tuon onnellisen mielen tilan.
Tunsin vain heikkoutta ja välttämättömyyden levätä.
Kysyin itseltäni - mitä on onnellisuus.

Nyt, kun olo on melkein ”normaali", koen taas onnellisuuden.
Onnellisuus ei tullut mistään ulkopuoleltani.

Vaikka mieheni oli kiltti ja auttavainen, en kokenut onnellisuutta.
Tarvitsin ‘kärsimyksen’ tunteakseni taas onnellisuuden.

Tässä minä olen ja elämä jatkuu.



Mytho vastasi kysymykseeni onnellisuudesta, onnesta:
"A crazy little thing called love?"

Nyt pyydän teitä kertomaan
Mitä rakkaus on?

    so many definitions for this abstract thing called love;I love my child, I love my dog,I love places and things, but to love is to feel loved and love back.

  4. I found this definition on line:

    From Lauren, age 4:

    "When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down, and little stars come out of you." : )

  5. "Splendored"? I thought it was "Love is a many splintered thing"! : )

  6. Beautiful photos of the sky.

    Hmmm... what is love? Love is a continual choice: letting go of the pain and rebuilding, talking and listening, understanding and accepting one another.

  7. Juuri olin viikolla luennolla What we talk about when we talk about love? Camilla Kronqvist, fil.dr. filosofi Åbo akademi, väistörkirjan teki. Ja vietin omaa 27 kihlajaispäivää eilen.

    Turvallisuuden tunne, mikä ei ole riippuvainen ulkonaisista asioista. Saa olla oma itsensä, eikä halua muuttaa toista.
    Itse tuntuu hyvältä arkipäivänäkin, kun saa suukon aamulla herätessä.

  8. I love your sky shots!

    And love and happiness, well when you feel good inside, good about something and someone, then I guess you might be happy.

    :)

  9. even harder than the last question...
    love to me is something found so deep in your heart...something that is so difficult to let go, you hold onto it because it can never be replaced.
    that said, you can love more than once, but it is always a different type of love, never replaceable with something/someone else.
