The world is a sadder place now because of the pandemic. Measuring happiness, Canada drops out from 10th to 15th position, according to the 2021 World Happiness Report from the United Nations.

Nordic countries: Finland, Denmark, Iceland, Norway and Sweden are the happiest followed by Switzerland, Germany, Holland and Austria. New Zealand is also in top 10.

They asked two kinds of questions: one is about the life in general, something like life evaluation - How is your life going? The other question is about mood, emotions, stress and anxiety. They put down the answers, marked it and made a list of happiness.

In life there is nothing to be happy or unhappy about.

We go on living, thinking that the world is supposed to be a logical and consistent place. Well, that is not the case. All misery comes from our idea that the world is true.

We assume that if the world is true then we are also true. This self-importance is the main reason for our feelings of depression, sadness, emptiness, and anxiety.

Consider, without any prior warning, suddenly, you have a taste of your own being. From the very beginning you have no knowledge of your real nature. Everything is hidden away from you. And still is.

In life we are forced into a series of activities and experiences. That makes us human beings, bodies with the name. By the time we pick up our beliefs and duties... Our seemingly purposeful actions follows one another and there is no end to them and no escape. We are lost in our experiences... it's said - we are living our life.

Dazzled by the superficial worldly events, inventions and discoveries, that made us lazy, we have no explanations for anything. With our attitude we paint the picture of our life without noticing that the same thing is repeated over and over again.

We are guided by the feeling of our personal happiness.

In relation to that we try to organize our behavior accordingly. And it all goes well until we start questioning our beliefs, when we start to see them through, when something terrific happens and our experiences lose its charm.

Life is our dream, it is our intense love for experiences, our lust for living. In spite of all this closeness and fondness, this game has the end. All the experiences with their peculiarities will vanish and our play will finish.

Life is a play that does not allow testing. So, sing, cry, dance, laugh and live intensely, before the curtain closes and the piece ends with no applause.
