In order to develop our mind, we must look at a deeper level. Everyone seeks happiness, joyfulness, but from outside—from money, from power, from big car, from big house. Most people never pay much attention to the ultimate source of a happy life, which is inside, not outside.His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

His holiness is absolutely correct. I understand happiness’s to be external experiences. Joyfulness is that expression. That joy no one can give you and no one can take it away. It is the result of a personal and experiential relationship with our creator. Irregardless of the experiences we have in this life joy is a gift we never truly is deserving of. Thanks for lending your exhortations that points in the right direction.
