In order for us to find what we believe is happiness, we have to think about what happiness is. Do we feel happy when we eat, buy material products, earn a lot of money, have many friends or have a beautiful partner? When we look at it in a deeper sense, we see that we’re really asking what in life makes us feel more secure. Happiness is what makes us feel safe!
