IMO, happiness is a state of mind, and therefore a simple choice.
It's why people who have very little can be happy and people who have a lot can be miserable.
Perspective is everything in life.

I ask this question again:What is happiness .I believe it has a deep meaning and it involves a big philosophy around this subject.
Jesus: What is your deepest desire?
Nikki: I'm not sure, I want to get into that...
Jesus: Then let's talk in generalities: What do most people's hearts long for?
Nikki: I don't know... Big screen TV I suppose... people's greatest desire is to be loved.
Jesus: I don't mean to be too personal, Nikki, but in your experience has another person ever completely fulfilled that need for love?
Nikki: Matt's a good husband!
Jesus: That's not what I'm asking...
Nikki: No. I suppose, no one has ever really fulfilled it completely.
Jesus: That's because another person never can. Only God can. He created people that way.
Nikki: But the Muslims never had that hope.
Jesus: They can't have a personal relationship with Allah.
Jesus: He is just someone to worship and serve from far away, even in Paradise.
Jesus: Now, why would God create mankind with this deep need to be loved and then never meet it?
"The Perfect Stranger" is based on the novel, 'Dinner With a Perfect Stranger' by David Gregory, 'THE PERFECT STRANGER' tells the story of Nikki, a troubled attorney who one day receives a mysterious dinner invitation from a man claiming to be Jesus of Nazareth. Throughout their evening of conversation, arguments and spirited debate, Nikki learns things she never knew about life, the universe, and most importantly, herself. (Sequel to this film is here BTW)
Then there is the people who achieve the bliss state where their body are naturally high they can smile while even while being though world depressed and thinking of life on earth as being in a lower level hell dimension.
