Differing Definitions of Happy

It would seem that answering the question What is happiness?” should be simple. After all, everyone wants it, experiences it, and recognizes it. But the fact is, there are thousands of books on happiness, and most start their discussion with the question “What is it?” Almost all find happiness difficult to define. Why? Because everyone experiences happiness differently.
We know happiness is a feeling based on an experience; that experience may make one person happy but not another. We also know the feeling of being happy is a relatively brief elevation of mood that for one may be slurping ice cream while for another it’s organizing a closet.
Recently I read about another example of differing happy feelings in the story of a Pennsylvania man who is refusing to take down a twenty-four-foot-tall illuminated cross he built in his front yard. The cross builder says its size demonstrates his religious conviction, but officials say the cross violates local ordinances and shines into neighbors’ windows. The cross builder says the size of the cross represents the size of his faith; just looking at it makes him happy. The neighbors, however, don’t share his happy feeling.

Remember: Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony and Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own, therefore for every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.

Have a Blessed Evening
