Why do you guys think about many children are joyful but most adults are not? Or at least that's how it felt growing up.
I don't think it's about having easy money, possessions or pleasures. There are plenty of adults with these things, but no matter how much they have they need to aquire more and they are still not joyful.
I think children have joy because they don't have knowledge of evil; that they are innocent. When you are a child you are a joyful, loving being. You don't think other people are evil or selfish. You trust your parents, teachers, politicians, strangers. You don't plan to manipulate or use others. When you lose your innocence you realize this world is full of evil and selfishness, and you accept to do evil things in the name or pragmatism and liberty. But then you lose that joyfulness too.
