Whatever makes you feel good at any particular point in time for an undetermined length of time. A cold beer on a hot day to a wonderful spouse for dozens of years.

Feel good chemicals that are released in response to something going right in your life.. endorphin, oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine.. The building blocks of happiness. Happiness is just a drugged effect on your system. You’re welcome.

My definition of happiness could be someone else's definition of Hell.

Happiness is something that you are and it comes from the way you think.

Happiness is when your life fulfills your needs

A lot of people might say love. Though that one is dependant on the person you fall in love with. They might be an angel who you should hang on to... They might be demon you're better off running away from. Love can be bliss but it can also be up there with the worst kinds of hell you can think of.

Happiness is when your life fulfills your needs. In other words, happiness comes when you feel satisfied and fulfilled.

its just a momentary exhilaration .. theres a distinction between happiness and inner strength which we might call 'joy' .. joy you can attain but its not a fleeting thing like happiness .. you can chase happiness until your dead and only catch it briefly, and thats a waste of your life .. so, one is external, one is internal .. one is materialistic, one is spiritual ..

Happiness is a spirit. People who are possessed by this spirit always feel happy even without a reason. There are many ways to get this spirit. But moral and justice always give pure happiness until death. The more you are clean the more would be the happiness. Human beings are ruled by spirits but humans must learn to control and rule the spirits. Spirits possess people according to the mental state of the human beings and keep them in the same state until they are rejected and replaced by another. This is an all time phenomena occurring in all humans. Human beings are always under the influence of spirits. Certain situations and circumstances causes the possession of certain type of spirits. Often thinking and talking about bad subjects or bad imaginations even for fun can take serious turns on one who think and talk. Often thinking and talking about good subjects with good imaginations can create positive effects in your life. Your favorable thoughts and beliefs can bring favorable spirits by your side. The more you think the more would be the possession of that spirit. All spirits (good and bad) have the dominating character. They can take you to the extent of sacrifice or suicide. All of your activities, talks and even thoughts determine what kind of spirits you will have for your life. Only these spirits are the reason for the good and bad happening in your life. Generally spirits determine your destiny from your daily activities, talks and thoughts too. Spirits are separate elements. A human being is not a single spirit. A human being doesn't have a spiritual body. A human being during his/her life time is living with many spirits which have joined one by one since birth. They are knowledge, skills, feelings, emotions, interests and everything. Even thoughts are not your own. For example, when you want to take a decision on a subject, one after another the spirits think and you just listen, choose or reject the ideas which they transmit to your mind through your brain in the form of thoughts. Brain is just a media to connect the spirits to your mind. A mind is just a computer's mind. After the destruction of a computer completely you will not get it's mind. The same is the case with the human beings. Soul is nothing but an energy needed for the functionality of a body. It is not a spirit or anything else. All human beings are just robots made of flesh and bones and toys of the spirits for their games.
