The definition of happiness may cause endless discussions, as each one of us has the epiphany, as well as the right to think otherwise. This is undoubtedly proof of our uniqueness, not to say an indication that the sort of happiness we get, is the sort of happiness we pursue - and this last one is mainly based on what we perceive! In other words, being happy is maybe, probably, definitely the execution of one’s favorite recipe: from meatballs to vegan pasta the compass has to turn 180°.
Few would disagree, though, that there is one thing surely offering deep pleasure and harmony - states that are linked with happiness since the ancient times when philosophers were gazing at the sky wondering about life’s substance and its boundaries - and this is no other than beauty itself! Beauty captivates us, stimulates, and at the same time calms us, and there is no one you would believe if they claimed they don’t long to be around beauty - whatever that may be.
The nature of beauty has concerned thinkers since antiquity, and among other fields of philosophy, there evolved the one called aesthetics, looking especially into what makes something we call a beautiful being as such. Surrounded by what we believe to be beautiful, we may feel like on our way to blissfulness, a state of joy with no limits.
If it is a mystery to you why the destination of an island usually seems like a ticket to Paradise, firstly think that the Good and the Beautiful, thought to be the Supreme Goods in philosophy, are inseparable and are often linked themselves with Nature; nature, according to Plato, imitates these infinite principles. And secondly, despite an island’s clear borders, to what our eye perceives the sea is infinite.
Now, we made this philosophical stroll to conclude that, according to the above, we could say that islands are pieces of land surrounded by eternity, in a way that only the sea and the sky can let us suspect, being a sensory answer to the field of Aesthetics!
Suspecting Eternity is somewhat suspecting Happiness, and this, my dear friends, will allow you to set your GPS accurately and directly towards the Greek Islands!
We don’t want to brag about Greek Islands being acknowledged amongst the most beautiful ones in the world, but we will. On one hand, there you have two words linked with happiness one aside to the other, and we would be fools to let you miss them; compared to philosophy, the good thing about geography is that the tickets are buyable! On the other hand, treasuring our land and islands means taking better care of them, creating the most hospitable shots of Paradise for you to expand your perception of Earthy Residency.
We would be fools as well to not enlighten you regarding the sort of Happiness you would be pursuing if you were to organize and spend your family vacations on the Greek Islands. If you set your compass towards the Mediterranean, it is guaranteed you will experience the sight of what seems to be an endless blue sea along with the sunbeams’ golden lace playfully dancing upon its surface. It is said that the Greek sun is bright like no other!
