Okay, we all know that nothing and no one can make us happy.
Not even morphine. And that says it all.
The secret is: being happy is NOT the ultimate goal in life. Surprise.
Actually, in my belief, the ultimate goal in life is simply to be aware. To awaken. That is our greatest purpose.
When you are aware, when you have awakened, it is impossible to be unhappy. It is impossible to be affected in this ultimate state.
To be fully aware, you will have complete control over yourself, and that is the most perfect state of being.
When you have full control over yourself, there is nothing you cannot be or do or have. And if you allow it, at that stage, you can be truly happy, and not just saccarine happy. Not fake happiness, which wouldn't last anyway. That is true bliss, in my book. And you can't achieve it if you are fake, spiteful or stupid.
Well, tough luck, idiots!
