Letting-off-the-Happiness or just plain happiness is not how much money you have although money does provide comfort. It is about how you act and react on a daily basis. When people come in contact with you, especially strangers they say " look at that person they seem to be genuinely happy. It just flows from them. It comes from the inside. It comes from knowing who you are. Self-esteem is a big part of happiness. It is becoming comfortable in your own skin.

You must love yourself first before you can start experiencing the wonders of happiness.

Yes, we do get glimpses of it from time to time, Although it does not seem to last.


But it never seems to last 

Happiness can never be provided by someone else.

Philosophers and religious thinkers often define happiness in terms of living a good life, or flourishing, rather than simply as an emotion.

The dictionary states: "Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy."

Letting-Off-The-Happiness is a sense of peace within you, a way of letting your inner goodness shine thru. It is a true sign that you are comfortable with who you are and everyone that meets you can see it. It is you knowing you are a part of God. You being comfortable saying  I AM.

Aristotle begins with the claim that every activity aims at some end. This claim is straightforward -- it means that everything you do (every activity), you do for some purpose (some end). So you go to school (activity) to get a job (end). You learn carpentry (activity) in order to build wooden objects (end). 

Sometimes, Aristotle notes, the end in one activity-end formula can become an activity in another. 
1: You practice carpentry (activity) in order to build wooden objects (end). 
Here the end -- building wooden objects -- can itself become an activity, namely where: 
2: You build wooden objects (activity) to sell them for money (end).  
 So, Aristotle notes, just about all things are not only pursued for the sake of something else, but the 'something else' itself is pursued for the sake of still yet some other thing. Does this continue on to infinity? Is there ever an endpoint? Is there anything that we pursue for the sake of itself and not for the sake of some further thing or end? 

Aristotle thinks there is one thing that fits this description: happiness.

If the pursuit of happiness is never pursued for the sake of some other thing, then according to Aristotle it is the "highest of all goods" or the "complete good" or the "good that is self-sufficient". That means happiness is an “end in itself. 

Is Aristotle right? Think about it. Take any activity, and if we ask "what for?" eventually we will reach happiness as the ultimate goal, and then stop. 

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn, or consumed.

Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.
