Happiness Series: interview with a monk

We wanted to know what happiness is, so we asked!

Happiness means different things to different people. So we thought we’d ask, “What does happiness mean to you?” Leave a comment and let us know!

‘Happiness’ is never a permanent state. No sense to imagine achieving it.
1. ‘Joy’ and ‘delight’ are spontaneous; and you’ll feel those when willingly, you do things for self or others. (“willingly” the operative word)
2. Joy and delight happens when first beholding beauty in nature or some human created art form.
Instead of trying to define or achieve ‘happiness,’ live for contentment with your decisions and actions and for the pleasant awe to be found around you.
