There’s the saying – “No two snowflakes are alike”. Similarly, I believe no two humans are the same even if both are considered identical twins because each twin may exhibit a slightly different behaviour, taste or preference. Hence, who’s to say there’s only one ticket to happiness in life. In the end, I think each of us experiences joy through multiple paths.

In the longer term, I opine humans will evolve away from needing physical things (e.g. cars, fancy clothes, delicacies, money) to make them feel happy. Likely, the term called enlightenment may imply that the consciousness of oneself has shifted to the state of “needing nothing, but appreciating everything“, where just to exist in life, becomes a joyful experience itself. Spiritual teachers of the past have alluded to this notion too – Everyday Nirvana is a possibility for All.
