what will you do when you are in a jubillant happy mood?

Most people find it difficult to describe what it's like to feel happy. It's like many of the most important aspects of being human: often we find it hardest to explain and understand the things that are the closest and most important to us. Things like love, consciousness, or grief are almost impossible to understand ourselves, much less describe to others. And of all these intimate experiences, happiness appears to be the most difficult of all. It's mystifying! For something which is so critically important to us and so powerfully felt when it occurs, our knowledge and understanding of our own happiness is largely nil. We feel happiness, but we don't comprehend it!
