Happiness is so significant to us, both as individuals and as a world, mainly because happiness is all there is in life. As human beings, although we possess mental abilities and are highly thought oriented, the quality of our lives is ultimately completely determined by our emotions.
Happiness, which includes pleasant emotions and moods that encompass it, is the only facet of our lives with any ultimate value. Aristotle described it as the highest good. Of what value is any good except that it enables happiness, or greater happiness, of human beings and other life on our planet?
Happiness is all there is and all there ever will be; all else is only a means to happiness. If you’re interested in learning more about it, here’s a FREE resource from the internet:
