Beatum ergo sum (being happy therefore I am)

2nd Feb 2017

What a conversation I had with Soha today!
The short version of it

Soha: Baba(dady) I don't know what is real.
Me : What do you mean?
Soha : Arey I had a dream where I thought all of it was real, but then I woke up and now I don't know if this is real or the dream is.
Me : Yes I had the same problem growing up. How do you know if we are real?
Soha : But see I can touch you so you are real.
Me : But how do you know its not you dreaming of touching me?
Soha : (In deep thought) (Silent for a while) But don't you know you are real?
Me : Not really(pun unintended), I have struggled all my life to prove I am real.
Soha (after almost 10 minutes of doing something else) : Baba I know I am real, cause I know I can have happy thoughts !!!!

Me : (Stunned !!!)

What a beautiful expression of reality. "I know I exist because I am capable of being Happy".

Take that for a counter argument Descartes!!!
