mind expanding nonsense

Feelin’ Good

Feelin good 001

Okay, the above nonsense was cranked out when I was feeling good.  Maybe a little too good.  But it sure felt good.  I think everybody, and everything, wants to feel good.  And, does exactly what is needed to feel so.  Be it via alcohol, drugs, exercise, or sex (which is increasingly becoming more like exercise the older I get); all that stuff.  We don’t tend to gravitate to things that make us feel bad; like, “Oh boy, I wanna feel some pain today, it’s been a while”.  Hell no!  Feelin’ bad is usually only a side-effect in our pursuit of feeling goodness.

Here’s a little secret.  Those in charge don’t want us feeling too good.  If ya did, you may never go to work again.  So although you’d have a society of happy content people laying around all day enjoying themselves, they wouldn’t be producing a damned thing.  And we wouldn’t be buying all the pre-packaged happiness those in charge are trying to sell us, leaving their shareholders very unhappy.  Don’t get me wrong, they want people to be happy and feel good, but only if they buy it from them.  Then the question is: How much happiness can you afford?

Their answer to that is: “You can afford a shit-load of happiness”, all ya gotta do is charge it to your credit card.   Pretty cool.  Instant happiness.  All ya got to do is call that 800 number, or click on ‘purchase’, and happiness is on it’s way [I can’t wait].  Only problem is, if ya get too happy, you’re gonna end up paying for it.

  1. “And we wouldn’t be buying all the pre-packaged happiness those in charge are trying to sell us, leaving their shareholders very unhappy.”

    Not a truer sentence has been penned.

  2. Too true, but it often takes half a lifetime to realise it.

  3. buying happiness has proven to be highly over-rated by just about everyone. Still it seems to sell.

  4. I’m thinking James Brown right now!
