The happiest of entities on this plane are those who do precisely what they want to do. The miserable ones are the ones who try to make everyone else happy and do what they "should" do to appease for the sake of that which is termed notice, love, compassion, and kindness. Live for you. Do what you want to do. As long as yuu live for expectations of others, you will never be happy, and you will never lead, and you will never accomplish, nor will you be remembered.
Happiness is the ability to be free of insecurities and worry and fear, to allow the self to create happily up here, in thought, so that it unfolds out there. And if happiness is having a wafer for your dinner and cold water for your wine and the whole of he world for your home, so that you are not enslaved or entrapped to the environments of dogma and social pressures, so be it.
You are rich if you are happy in your soul, for gold cannot buy happiness. To perceive your treasure, look within to the love and beauty that is the unseen essence that you are.
Thus you must ascertain what it is about your being that you love and like. And what makes you unhappy and what you dislike--you can master the change as it occurs in a moment. Of the realities that you have surrounded yourself with, that you look at every day in your time and the relation unto your soul makes you feel unhappy, get rid of them!
