True happiness is being true to Hod your self and otheres living in love forgiveness and peace.Getting threw life by faith in God and not looking at your sercomstances but believing God takes care of you.
I found peace in Buddhist meditation. Enlightenment has turned a life of tumultuous unrest to a calm pur for me. Upon my wonderful lifestyle approaching its catastrophic abrupt end I always find myself smiling with a sense of deep inner peace. Perhaps because the impending doom always stops short for me or perhaps it hits me and I just don't mind. Either way I used to not "get" life and sort of hate it with confusion and misunderstanding- now I just accept it no matter what happens. I cannot say its gotten better as I've aged but my attitude has and that makes all the difference. A kingdom with which you cannot happily enjoy is worthless to the wise.
