In the core of true happiness

Living and loving life is the motivational theme here of this part of the E-book, and to realize ones reality has become such a joy to experience indeed, which also tends to bring much more happiness to the scene. Children smile for no apparent reason as a baby and during all of their adolescent stages, and throughout their teenage years. A thought that may come to mind of the passive observer of this human behavior and self expression may be, "Why are they always smiling for." The simple answer for them is, "Because they can, and also because maybe they're just happy to be alive".

This form of happiness is what is known as the natural state of showing appreciation for just being alive. Even animals express this form of appreciative acknowledgment when they playfully enjoy moment after moment of cheerful activities. The bear cubs throwing their tiny claws at one another, as they roll in joy in the silliest of ways, a smile can be seen even on their faces. The same is with lions, tigers, and other predators, even birds play all of the time swooping through the air fourth and back. (Not all birds are Angry Birds)

Nature Speaks Poetry

The ensemble of a symphony orchestrated dance burst into a beautiful display, signaling that our mother earth has brought us yet another great moment of cheer. Ducks, goose, humming birds, pigeons, hawks, and even eagles the kings of the airways take to the air with flight privileges that sets them apart from most other creatures on earth. For their freedom is granted as soon as they depart, which is always signified by the beauty of their wing expansion, and its luxurious flapping force to guide them upwards into better pastures.

The lack of having proper landing gear, and no well defined flight plans never stops them neither. As they will set off for an unknown foreign land and UN-designated territory without fear, which is the true beauty of having such a native freedom to take to the air on a moments notice.

Travel and life experiences bring happiness

From the seashores of Africa, to the mountainous trails of the Appalachian, people of all walks of life are drawn to nature. It's purity of a well balanced essence, learning of ones cultural heritage, and how they all came to celebrate life and its enduring legacy of triumphant successes for all humanity, over repetitive failures that history seems doomed of repeating.

For those to become truly happy in such lands where the indigenous people once owned, is to also feel free as a bird. In today's world of artificial presence, of living for the fact of having material goods, items of possession, and stuff that can only make the superficial aspect of someone's life feel better. We are all presented with a moral dilemma of epic proportions. The reason why children tend to say things like, I'm bored, and why they tend to have attitude issues growing up in a confined atmosphere or environment.

Many of us wish to be able to explore the epic contours of this amazing planet, and to set sail off into the dream like life filled ocean seas. Taking such a leap of faith and into action does indeed require a tour guide of sorts for those unfamiliar with the landscapes and territories of many places far from their places of origin and nationality. Being able to expose oneself to the vast array of differing cultures, and diverse customs as well as national heritage of many indigenous peoples of these places, is truly a spiritual awakening of sorts for sure, and has the capacity to change anyone for the better in this day and time.

Traveling around the globe as well is one of a dream, but it requires for one to have large sums of money, or be part of a naval fleet, a volunteer in some nationwide fellowship of sorts, whether it be a church, or commissioned leadership group to help with humanitarian efforts. Mainly to be able to feel such a freedom of getting around, and capturing the truest essence of the outer environments of many great places is very stimulating to anyone seeking such an experience as world travels.


The gift of family

As creatures of this place we call earth, we also have the fortunate part to play in what is known as being born into the world. Once this occurrence suddenly jumps into being for the cry baby, or precious quite little soldier, the next thing that will eventfully occur is the meeting of ones family. Even if its just their mother to discover is a sigh of relief that this individual is definitely not alone.

Families start out sometimes with many offspring at once, and for a great deal of animals, and microscopic specimens such a reality will come to play whether they want it too, or not. You are stuck for life with your loving, caring, and sometimes repulsive family members. The other aspect of the matter is, love may definitely become the center of gravity in this situation of sorts. (Most humans tend to be loving and caring of their own families)

The most loving and tender caring of all families will transpire deep embedded codes of connectedness, and affection onto one another; this happy play on things all spells an end resultant to them, that this life is truly worth living. Then soon to come as well, is the many countless celebrations that are also a gift to experience all throughout their full life expectancy. Having and being part of the human family and animal kingdom is definitely a reason to be happy about today.

      Thank you Faith, yes indeed the Lord shall have his way with my success in life, you are 100% correct my good friend. I will do my very best to complete this new challenge I set out to deliver to this world that we live in, and if anything I just want to feel good about making strides to actually achieve such a feat.

      I also hope that in the process what I am doing on hubpages can help inspire others somehow to maybe do much of the same, because reality surely need a facelift today for sure.

      What an amazingly beautiful hub here and congrats on the writing of your novel. May God richly bless you. Love . . . IS the simple answer in this world. People going on missions trips all come back with one thing in common, and that is they are changed for the better, and they all say how the people are so very kind and very happy, with little of nothing, but they still are able to praise God. They literally depend upon God for everything they need each day, as they have nothing, yet they are the happiest people one would want to meet. The video is stunningly beautiful.

      God bless, and I hope and pray for you much success in your endeavors here. Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.

      Voted up ++++ and sharing.

      In His Love, Faith Reaper

      @Deborah Brooks, thank you so much Debbie for this awesome comment you've rendered for me, and for giving my novel a good look. I am shifting gears a great deal these days, and it feels so good to know others care to give what I do have to offer up a try. I do hope my dreams come true someday as well, but it won't happen if humanity isn't with me on this journey back to nature.

      I wish for us all to return to a balanced living of well being, a good state of heart, mind, and soul. So until that day comes I will not stop, I will pursue such a balance and to help all others in such a hot pursuit as well.

      @billybuc, Hey there budd, yes I am diving in this thing head first, and just trying to pore it all out from that my spirit onto the pages here, and its just now becoming a pleasure for me to travel upon the worlds terrains mentally once again and with using my thoughts about it all in this manner.

      As I mentioned to Kasman up above, ever since a kid I dreamed of becoming an explorer.

      So now this is my chance to do it without any money, or any reasons to look back, thanks bro for taking the time to give this part of my new first ever Novel the time of day.

      I truly appreciate your doing so, and for commenting and sharing with me bro as you do quite often.

      @Kasman, thank my good friend yes indeed I been thinking long and hard about finally exploring new ways to start my novel writing, and so here it is and onto hubpages. This is such a fun and joyful experience to see others enjoy what my heart has to offer to this world.

      As a child I always felt this way, I also felt bottled up a great deal, and so I always wanted to travel the world, but instead since my family was poor all I had to look forward to was national geographic and the Encyclopedia Britannica. I thank the lord for keeping my dreams alive, and so now I am doing my best to live them all out through my words, which is our words and our life story on this great earth.

      I love the format you are using to write this book. Great message here, but the format is ground-breaking, daring and I hope you have a great experience doing it this way. Good luck buddy!

      Very touching brother, I love how the different topics are interwoven together by a common thread of wonder! I love traveling to new places around the globe, it's not only become a type of hobby in a sense, it's been a dream come true for me. I couldn't have done it without family and God either. I've met indigenous people that have filled my heart with welcome and love. They tend to treat you like an honored guest or royalty in some ways. Love it Cloudexplorer, voting this up and sharing!
