Something to think about...

The eastern idea of Happiness is something Westerners often miss. It is called "Equanimity"...

Equanimity comes from the Latin Aequs meaning "Equal" and Animus meaning "Spirit".

So the secret to happiness is simpler that we think. Happiness, in the truest sense, is just feeling "equal-to-things". A profound, sustained sense of happiness floods our body/mind when we feel equal to everything, when all that life offers us feels adequate. Equanimity... a sense of being "up for the challenge" no matter how intense and nothing can shake you off balance, and no one can mess with your mind/body space.
