happy to be unhappy

Happy to be unhappy, this is how i would classify this current age.  Our culture and our society is happy to be unhappy and thus we divert all our energy into material things, whether it be people, money, success, prestige, power, wealth, notoriety, fame and the list is countless.

Happy to be unhappy.

Here is verse from Trilussa...

There is a be which lights
on a rosebud;
it sucks it and flies away
all in all, happiness
is a small thing..

Happiness is a small thing

Jesus in the gospel reminds us this as well as we enter into the bread of life discourse.

"...Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him...whoever feeds on me will have life because of me..."

Could be so simple.  Could be like the bee.  We light upon the bread of life and find it nourishment for our souls and strength for our bodies.

Is happiness such a small thing?

Why do we complicate that which is so plain, so simple, so easy to digest.

"I am the bread of life" he says, we hear and yet we find ourselves tasting and eating everything else but the one thing that has been laid before us.

Why do we choose other foods when the real food has been set before us.

Happiness is such a small thing!
