There was someone who told me, happy is if we are on the road of religion. I slightly agree with the opinion of the man. But I also feel happy not just because of religion. If we are already in the path of religion, but there are other things that make us unhappy. Same thing we are not happy. What do you think.

Indah: Ofcourse we all love happiness but its our choose to happy or not, don't let others to be source of your happiness because its not everlasting. Ifa: I am glad you love it too. I love to reads someone describe happiness the way I see it. Have a nice day for both of you.

Yes. We are all happy because we're happy. Enjoy the happiness that we have, before happiness is gone. Because, we do not know when the happiness will come.

The sick thought, happiness lies in health. The poor man thought, happiness lies in wealth. The common people think happiness lies in power. Happiness is something that exists outside humans, and is conditional. Happiness is very temporal. If he is victorious, then there is happiness. If are falling, so there goes happiness. So. There is no lasting happiness in the human soul. Happiness is a moment in nature, depending on external conditions of man.

happiness means depending on the person, and depending on the desire to achieve.

life is not always as beautiful as we think. that is what i believe. happy and unhappy is part of life that we can't resist. just face it with brave and passion, and we can get the fruits by doing that

I think alot of 'religion' is just a crutch for people to hold on to. People need to stand on their own and be confidant and meet their GOd half way. Not be totally dependant on him. People that are strong with in themselves half alot more to be thankful for than those who leave it to God to do it all for them.

Happiness is not a destination but a journey. Religions teaches humans to be good but it doesn't guarantee happiness. Look at those war torn countries who are fighting because of wrongly interpreting their religious beliefs. Religions should bring peace and not war. Where is the beauty of religion when the end result is bloodshed. Happiness is not tomorrow, it is now. Happiness is not dependency, it is a decision.

I am happy without a reason .. hmm .. so far I always want to be happy not because of certain reasons (after reading this I memikirikan new, what's the reason I'm happy? apparently no .. yes happy happy, no reason for it ..) so the answer could I make others happy without a reason? the answer may be yes and can not .. but if if someone else can be happy without a reason? could answer .. so I think everyone can be happy for no reason but to make someone happy, there must be a reason .. if not, how do we know he's happy or not .. complicated? not too .. essentially happy and share happiness in any way to anyone .. greetings,

indeed sometimes, happy to come for no reason. but more happy, come for a reason. and that reason, very clearly could be disclosed.

Happiness is something that can be found inside of us. Religion helps some people to seek it out, but any who desire can find it. It is simply, to be grateful for what we have, to be positive about serving others, the more you can do this the happier you will be, at least in my humble opinion. Sincerely and With Appreciation.

hi indahfth you cannot make me happy nor can anyone else, happiness comes from within and in spite of unhappy circumstances we can make ourselfe happy or miserable a belief in God can only help but its up to you to find happiness with what you have no matter how the circumstances are as nobody can pour happiness into you you have to reach out and make yourself feel happy. do not use that unhappy things as an excuse, i have not a lot of unhappiness these last two years but I manage to smile and to laugh too;happiness comes from within and you can make you happy.

I too am a christian and God is not just my Saviour, but my constant companion. That in and of itself provides happiness for me. I find that when you are sad, if you will pray and ask God to help you find someone to be a blessing to, that will surely produce a happy feeling. Also, looking daily at what you have to be thankful for, helps a lot. If we concentrate on sadness, or my needs not being met to make me happy, that just keeps the cycle of sadness going. So why not make it your aim to be a blessing to someone, and I'll bet that will bring a new joy to your life. Have a blessed week.

I think that happiness is a decision. We can decide to choose happiness over sadness for the most part. I know that there are instances in life when having a spiritual faith can be an enormous help and that is good but I do believe that choosing positivity and gratitude for all the good that we have instead of focusing on what we don’t have may well be the way to more joy in our lives.

Many things not related to religion can make us happy or unhappy. Just to focus on the happy things: our children's laughter beauty in nature art music play reading a good book a good conversation with a friend love

Happiness and sadness are just part of life. As much as we don't want to feel unhappy, there's just no way we can avoid it. We need to feel sadness as much as we need happiness because those two are just like night and day, you can not appreciate one without the other.

I believe everything starts within nobody and nothing can make you happy but yourself some people find contentment in spirituality, some find it in material success, some find it somewhere else but if you are not happy inside, you will never be happy with anyone or anything

I find happiness and or sadness are choices we make as well as the choices to believe and or not believe religions. I firmly believe in God and that makes me happy, although I have many other things in life that make me unhappy as this is the world I live in. Someday perhaps when I reach the Kingdom of God I will have no further sadness.. Maybe this is what the person was saying. As the life we live in with so many different types of people we all have tendencies to create and or accept sadness.

hello indahfth, happiness is when you know what you can lean on Someone more powerful than yourself. if you believe that you will be confident that no matter what in everything that you do, someone will guide you along the way. and when you fall down, there will be someone to help you stand and be on tract again. that is - whatever religion you maybe in. because i believe that religion cannot save you but your faith. have a very nice day. ann
