12 "Happiness blowing in the wind"

When a soothing wind blows gently love through the thistledown of expectations, hope may inveigle the future for timeless care and tenderness to be anchored in a bay of good luck.

Let us dare to dream and shoot for the moon. Even if we don't get the moon, a million stars may fill us with wonder.

We can give happiness a chance: happiness is learnable.

Life is a choice and happiness is a question of focusing on the genuine values of the things behind the screen of appearances. Happiness depends on finding out the differences between worthiness and irrelevance, connectedness and distantness, warmth and aloofness, brightness and dimness. Happiness is the lucky potential to steer friskily along the cliffs of the unknown avoiding the obstacles of narcissism and conceit.

Being happy is harder than being discontent. For happiness we have to roll up our sleeves and knock down houses of cards. As it takes too much effort, many prefer to abide by 'fake' happiness.

If one settles for a life of 'unsolicited happiness' or 'undemanding contentment', avoiding misfortunes just under the wire and being fortunate only sporadically may be gratifying options. 

Others don't want to be happy, inasmuch as they undergo happiness merely as languor and yawning. They are dissatisfied with a bland and vacuous state of glee and, instead, prefer to keep on running like raging bulls through the whims and quirks of life. In reality, their dissatisfaction is their contentment, their displeasure  their happiness.
