“People are just about as happy as they make their minds to be.” ~Abraham Lincoln
We are spiritual beings having a human experience. The spiritual part is always happy, or rather, is happiness itself. The body conceals this happiness but it is there all the time. There is a constant desire to be aware of this happiness, which is why it is constantly sought. When happiness occurs, regardless of the conscious thought of that moment, something else happens. Whether we thought it was the thrill of arriving at the summit of a high mountain, the anticipation of eating a delicious slice of cake, or dreams of spending lottery winnings, when happiness occurs, one common factor endures.
At the peak of happiness, there is a stoppage of the thinking process. There is inner silence. Worries drop away. There is peace. The competition or dangers are over. This may last for a brief moment or longer. In this vast peace, we feel happy. It is not the object gained or the successful performance that brought this feeling. It is something internal and independent of the outside world. Happiness is always present, but covered by thoughts, desires, and fears. It is experienced when these “covers” disappear. When fear or worry comes to an end or a desire attained, there is a temporary disappearance of these covers. The ego and personality stop moving for a while and a great satisfaction and inner happiness is experienced.
