Happiness flow

We find the greatest pleasure when we get ourselves totally engrossed in our work. It really does a magic by vanishing our entire self or earthly existence. Sometimes a sudden noise makes us realise that we indeed have transported, as it were, to a different world as created by the author of a book in which we have sublimated our mind energy. It is like leaving our own body, so to speak, to go to the world of imagination!
We really get the taste of infinity when we do or enjoy some creative work or even do our household chores with deep concentration. At that time, we tend to lose track of time or even our ego. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi of Claremont Graduate University described this as the happiness of flow. He said that we could train ourselves to often experience such a flow to make us really happy.
This highlights the need to wholeheartedly concentrate on our work or job and to cultivate a hobby to get happiness. As a matter of fact, our pursuit of pleasure can give us only temporary happiness as just after getting the object of our desire, we tend to lose interest in it. Whereas happiness of flow can take us to the world of harmony and make us in tune with the Universe.
