Comparison and Happiness.

Measurement is the basic requirement for comparison. But the things most of us value in life are intangible. They have no metric; they can’t be measured. But we are trained to find happiness by comparison right from our childhood. So we ignore what is real and what we really want,  and we go after things that we can easily measure and compare.

   Let’s explore a little more. Measurements and comparisons are thought forms. Thought is past; it’s not real. So, trying to seek happiness by comparison is an illusion, isn’t it? Aren’t we avoiding what is real when we are measuring and comparing?
