Which state is a more realistic goal to attain - happiness or peace?

Updated: May 8, 2023

Both happiness and peace are desirable states of being, but they are different in nature and can be pursued in different ways.

Happiness is often associated with experiencing positive emotions and achieving a sense of fulfillment, satisfaction, and pleasure in life. It can be related to personal goals, achievements, relationships, and other factors that contribute to a sense of well-being.

However, happiness is often fleeting and can be affected by external circumstances beyond our control, such as unexpected events, changes in our environment, or the actions of others.

On the other hand, peace is a more stable and enduring state of mind that can be cultivated through inner work, such as meditation, mindfulness, self-reflection, and spiritual practices. It is characterized by a sense of calm, contentment, and acceptance of oneself and the world around us. Peace can be more resilient to external events and less dependent on external factors, as it is primarily an internal state of being.

In terms of which one is more realistic to attain, it ultimately depends on one's personal preferences, circumstances, and values. Some people may prioritize happiness and pursue it through various means, such as pursuing their passions, building meaningful relationships, or achieving success in their careers. Others may prioritize peace and seek it through practices such as meditation, yoga, or spending time in nature. Both happiness and peace can be attainable goals, but they require different approaches and may be influenced by different factors.
