More on happiness

I can't remember if I've shared this one with you before or not but I really like it and think it is worth a repeat anyway!

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.

-- Denis Waitley

Today in class we talked a little bit about the pursuit of happiness not being merely a right but also a responsibility. Unhappy people tend to trigger unhappiness in others. Happy people are a delight to be around. So striving to be happy is not a selfish undertaking at all.

Of course, it must be remembered that we are talking about real happiness here - not mere gratification. And a lot of people confuse the two.
