The happiness, of seemingly “Happy People” is incredibly fragile and can turn into the opposite at any moment, as it is sought for in apparent objects and distracting activities.
It picks and chooses this over that and desperately tries to ignore the underlying fear of the ending of this "happiness".
However, when viewed from the perspective of awareness, we see that apparent objects and activities are not providing happiness but revealing the happiness that is already within us, which is us.
That is why true and lasting happiness is only found in the realization of one’s true nature, in the peace of the Self.
