happiness.

I am happy.

I have always been happy. Even in the darkest pits of hell; I have been happy. No, not like maniac happy. Not that "ridiculous grinning like a mad-hatter happiness". True happiness.

And what the hell does that mean? True happiness?

Happiness is wealth and by wealth...I mean, all satiable needs have been met. Did you notice the word "needs"? That's key. I think to be able to have wealth you need to be able to distinguish between "need" and "want". Not that monetary wealth isn't nice. It is. Makes certain things less stressful.

Happiness is love. You know all that Oprah, self-love, affirmation stuff. That's a part of it. Loving is a way that provides yourself and thereby all things around you the love. When you are filled with this kind of love it just creates a state of happiness that blooms from you inherently. Oh yeah and general compassion, blah blah blah.

Happiness is the ability to live once removed. We all know that when others treat you like shit and the world is destroying itself, it is difficult to be happy. When your boss yells at you or your girlfriend is a complete cunt...How do you handle that? Scream? Fight? Passive aggressiveness? My usual response is to accept it for what it is and move on. It is really irrelevant to have someone cut you off on the interstate. In the grand scheme things, that tiny blip -- that one human lifetime seems pretty ridiculous. So why lash out as if the all of existence is going to wipe out that "bad driver". Pointless.

Happiness is expression. We have this amazing capacity to create and inspire the world around us. So even when a person is down, expression through; art, music, laughter, whatever...has the ability to "grow happiness." That's real magic.

Honestly, I could keep going on. But, I think I made my point.

The sad part is, I know my fair share of depressed people. Clinically and otherwise. It's a damn epidemic if you ask me. Which you didn't so

...I'll go back to being happy and whatever.
