    Being happy doesn't mean

    everything is perfect,
    It means you have decided to look beyond the imperfections.

    Happiness, like anger, sorrow,

    amused etc. are a matter of choice. You hear "She made me mad" "He hurt my feelings" and so on. That's only true

    when you allow people to have that type of power over you. You make the choice to allow them that power. Instead you

    can choose to be whatever mood you want, all you have to do is stop blaming others and start taking responsibility

    for yourself. We are whatever we choose to be as we create our own reality.
    To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

    I came across something on this same

    topic....


    Happiness cannot come from without. It must come from within. It is not what we see and touch

    or that which others do for us which makes us happy; it is that which we think and feel and do, first for the other

    fellow and then for ourselves.

    -- Hellen Keller
    To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
