Hola Quadra Paul, and great comment! I have seen, read and come to understand that what you have said is completely correct. The thing is to distinguish between true happiness and egoic needs happiness. Egoic needs happiness would be something like; "Oh I just got a raise and it feels great", or "I feel so happy when I am with him/her, she makes me feel wonderful" or, "That was a good movie, I enjoyed it a lot." Nothing wrong with those things, but they are all based from an exterior stimuli, a stimuli that can and will change at any minute. True happiness comes from someplace deep inside and is not based on exteriors, although it can be shared with exteriors. I think it is called in the Hindu tradition "Sat Chit Ananda" which means when you become aware of your own soul, and as such that of others, you will know a bliss that is always there and can never be harmed or damaged by exteriors. "Happiness" is the exterior based happiness where " Bliss or "Joy" is the interior based happiness. This is self referral vs. object referral awareness. I hope that makes sense. OMMMMMMmmmmmmm... e
