What’s happiness? Where do we find it? How do we get it? I read that it is important to have enough money for our needs, but other than that, money has little to do with real happiness.
Happiness is the most intelligent state we’ve looked for in our entire lives. In our pursuit of real happiness in life we experience too much pain and sacrifice. In fact, there are times when we lose our own source of happiness. But there are only a few who know that real happiness lies within ourselves.
Happiness does not always require success, prosperity or achievements. True happiness has its roots in selflessness. The present is an age of pleasure seeking and men lose their common sense in the crazy rush to sensations that excite and disappoint. In this day of counterfeits, the devil is busier than he has ever been before, in the course of human history, and in the manufacture of pleasures, both old and new, and offers for sale in the most attractive way, to a false happiness.
What’s happiness? How is it different from mere pleasure? Happiness does not leave a bad aftertaste, it is followed by no depressing reaction; it asks for no repentance, brings no regret, brings no remorse; pleasure too often requires repentance and suffering, and when pushed to the limit, it causes degradation and destruction.
