Siddhartha Personal Narrative Have you ever thought about what brings you happiness? By definition, happy means “feeling or showing pleasure or contentment”. People tend to dwell on what else can give them joy or peace and not what they already have. How often do we think about what we don’t have and envy others? We don’t appreciate what we are blessed with nor do we show enough gratitude towards others from which we receive gifts and more importantly, love. In Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse, enlightenment and the path to happiness and contentment is a major theme. Over Christmas break I had a lot of time on my hands, so I started to think about what brings me joy and happiness and tried to connect it with Siddhartha. I thought of Disneyland.
