Highs and Lows

Osho says sadness is always real because its our own.

Happiness looks as if its a dream sequence.We sometimes need to pinch ourselves hard to know that we are not dreaming.What makes us happy is a projection of the society.Cave men would have been happy if they killed a huge buffalo.Our happiness lies in conservation of the disappearing buffaloes.Sometimes we feel that both happiness and sadness are an illusion.But misery hits you hard because no one comes to share it with you.Society is built by people who win.So that thought process is inbuilt in us and that makes sorrow very painful.Happiness should also be painful because it passes away so fast.But the applause and the congratulations from people takes us into a drug induced state where we feel we have really done something significant.

I understand what you mean, but sorrow is not our own either we all feel that way at times, like the saying goes "you laugh and the world laughs with you, you cry and you cry alone." so i guess ever1 feels that way at times.
