What a wonderful and inspiring post! Thank you for iniviting others to share their joy...I could not resist sharing mine. For the past 20 years I have cared for my wonderful angel of a husband who became severely brain injured after a high speed head on collision in 1991. There have been moments of despair and utter emptiness and agony of soul (early on) however, these gave way to personal growth, moments of hilarity, true joy and freedom of my soul knowing I am giving back of myself, my life energies, to the angel who so selflessly gave of himself to me and my children for 25 years of his life. I feel truly blessed in my "purpose", knowing now that I was spared from a massive colon cancer one year prior to the accident for this very reason. I give thanks and praise to my God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for providing all that I needed to rest and thrive in Him! May you all be so blessed in the abiding Love that sustains us all!

Ok ill start with my True Happiness story!

its a pretty simple story but its a day i will never ever forget!

It was a beautiful sunny day here in ayrshire scotland, A group of friends and I decided to head down the beach at a place called greenan shore, its an amazing little place with a castle! We got down onto the beach and all sat around sharing storys and cracking jokes, we had a few drinks and chilled in the sunshine with the people we loved, i remember at one point lying back on the warm sand, closing my eyes and thinking " i feeeel truly happy to be here with these people, my friends, my brothers, my sisters, " I honestly felt kind of floaty and a wide smile spread across my face, As the the day went on the darkness drew in and we built a little camp fire right there on the beach, we had a guitar with us aswell so we started singing songs, all of us together singing! It really was amazing, We went round the circle and everyone told of how they felt at that moment and it was pretty muchthe same feeeling all round! We all felt truly happy, it almost brought a tear to my eye and a few people did actually start crying from sheeer happiness ! this is a day ill never forget and a time of true happiness for me
I am only 23 years old and i look forward to more days like this, my life is young
but full of love

Thanks for thaking the time to hear my story, i look forward to hearing yours

I am totally touched by what you have written. May your God reward you.

My story of happiness will begin when this present contract ends and I can finally go home to my wife, the most precious thing in my life.
The happiest moments I have shared are the most simple. Midnight in the middle of the Pyrenees mountains by a camp fire, drinking red wine from a plastic cup looking into my wife's eyes. Heaven!!!

Thank you my friend for allowing us to post on this thread. Tears are now streaming down my face as I write. I may need to go to the restroom so the others in the office do not see.

Peace and love to you all.

Some of my happiest moments, have come from making people dance. I've DJ'd at a few illegal raves in my time, and nothing beats that feeling, of standing behind the decks, spinning music you love, to people who want to dance to it. One moment stands out in particular.

*scooby do wavey lines to take you back*

It was in the summer of 1997, we were playing a party in a small valley, at the back of a golf course. The police helicopter was trying to get low, to drown out the sound system, but we just cracnked it up a notch or 12. The rig I was playing on, was slightly tucked away in the corner of a multi sound system party. I whacked on a tune, can't even remember which one it was. It had plenty of 303s and a big ass techno beat. It was just as this copper chopper decided it had enough pictures of people having fun in a field and did the offski. As the beat for the tune came in, a whole field full of people errupted into hands in the air euphoria. I remember standing back, and just soaking it in. All this energy, smiles and wide eyes looking back at me. Coupled with the scenery, a picturesque party in some wooded valley, in the arse end of no-where. It's a buzz that will beat any drug buzz any day of the week. The most contented I've ever felt, one of the best memories i can remember.

(I get to do it again this weekend, a much smaller party, but it'll be in a field

I always enjoy threads like this! It makes me smile to read other people's stories of happiness. It's much better than all the doom and gloom and hostility on here lately. Thanks OP....ok here is mine.

Well the moment fate stepped in and I met my boyfriend/soul mate
is my true happiness moment or story. I never thought the kind of guy or partner I was looking for existed until I met my bf. I have never been so happy in my life. So many unusual things happened that night that I feel were meant to happen in order for us to meet. We have both commented on how we met and we wish we could have met years ago. I feel like he is my other half. My friends and family have even said how I am completely different and it's good thing. I can't express the amount of happiness he has brought me and how I am a better person in so many ways because of him. He broke through my tough shell and that is how I knew he really loved me. Nobody ever tried before, he did and succeeded for all the right reasons. Just thinking about him makes me happy.
He gets me and loves me for who I am, flaws and all. He is in another country for 3 years (military) and I miss him daily but I am happy because he is in my life and I look forward to seeing him as often as possible. Some people think I am nuts and shouldn't be with him because of his distance but I disagree. He is worth it, I will be right here waiting for him.

love knows no distance~

Great thread

Returning safe and sound from Iraq. Seeing my wife and daughters waiting for me across a really big field as I walked with my comrades toward our loved ones. That was one of my truly happiest moments. There's been others.

May 1st, 1996 and I awoke. Yes, that was true happiness.
I awoke from surgery and was told my newly transplanted kidney began producing urine before it had even been completely connected.

Just to prove Im not a hard arse, my happiest moment was on Red Frog Beach in Bocas del Toro off of Panama, we had made friends with one of the guys who ferried people around the Islands, he took us fishing then on to an amazing beach for a bbq, we were eating the fish we caught and drinking a few beers, a little boy, a native to the island, must have been about 3, came up and joined us for our bbq, he didn't fear us and just got stuck in to the food.

The day after we paid Mike (the driver of the boat) to take us up to Costa Rica. It worked out cheaper than getting a bus and we got to travel up the caribbean coast in this small boat from one country to another. My whole 5 months of travelling was the happiest time in my life. I wouldn't swap those memories for anything

Thank you both for sharing

Kyred Im glad your surgery went well and that you woke up
i cant even begin to imagine how it must have felt afterwards. Im so glad you have a family to go home to


That sounds like an amazing trip, i would greatly love to take part in a journey like yours
Keep those memories close to your heart my friend and tell everyone about your journey
im sure they will be just as happy as i am to hear about it

Thanks again for sharing guys

Here's one from Australia:

Fate has its tricky ways of throwing the unexpected in your way!
wrote the OP, 'Free4ever2'

Yes, it does

Standing in the airport arrival-lounge. Bright sunshine outside and all around us the excitement of people meeting and greeting

Next to me were my children. We were scanning the crowd for someone we'd seen only once or twice during the past 17 years

My son, who'd never complained or said ' I wish ... ' during all those years, suddenly took off on his own and vanished into the crush

A few minutes later, my daughter and I saw him walking towards us. Next to him was a grey-haired man carrying a suitcase. They were smiling into each other's face

My daughter walked towards them and hugged the grey-haired man, who dropped his suitcase and buried his face in her hair as my son watched on

The three walked to me and without a word we looked into each other's eyes and melted into a group hug

Then we drove home in the sunshine, the ocean to our right and the rest of our lives before us

17 years after my husband and I divorced, Fate had put our family back together again. That was 12 years ago and we're still together

The happiest day I can think of is when I came home from the army (for the last time) and found out my wife was pregnant (yes it was mine). I didnt know how to acted after all the blood and guts that lay strewn across the land by my hands while doing my job. How could I be a father when I have killed sons and daughters of other humans. It was a hard thing to grasp, my wife and I were told that she could not have kids so I thought it was Karma she was going to put a baby in my hands and then take it away and I was prepared to take the blow.
So I carried on just trying to keep my mind prepared for the worst. Trying to be the tough SOB I was trained to be. Well time went on and things went down hill with my wifes health and I just carried on being me the tough SOB. Then one October night my dad calls me and "said son you need to come home as fast as you can" I was in S.C. working so I drove all night to get to my wifes side because in the back of my mind I knew it would be our last time to see each other. I arrived at the hospital around 5:00am my dad meets me in the hallway and said "hurry son" I thought this is it time to man up. I hit the door running all I could hear was "push your doing fine push I can see the head" and then crying from my baby then from my wife. the Doc asked me to cut the cord I didnt know how to reacted. I asked the doc is everything all right he didnt say any thing then the nurse asked if I could go out side and wait. I left the room and sat outside for seamed like eternity then the nurse asked me to come in and see my wife and baby girl. I opened the door and saw my wife and baby girl sittin just fine in the bed and then I did what any tough SOB would have done I cried.

I see this will be a wonderfull thread that will have a big effort to us all and is quite the opposite than most of the anger and fearmongering threads on here. Thank you for that!
(But i hope it wont vanish like other did before... Mostly the hate and fear threads show up on the hot and top...)
So everyone that want to spread light and love should flag this to bring it up to the front and say: "We are here and full of love! We are thousand times stronger than you dark fools!"

My life was not as happy as i would wish and when i look back i am proud to say that i am still living, that all the cr@p made me stronger and gave me the will and power to go on ´til today...

Well, but lets have a look into my happyest moments:

Surely one of the best ones where 2006 at the soccer cup in germany. I am a rapper and got an inviting to make a gig short before a game in the arena. 32.000 people staring at me and hearing my songs. They flipped out when i played my "WM Song", i absorbed all the energies sended to me and felt like a king or more... Wow!

Short after it i decided to make a second trip (i was on a world trip short before) to switzerland visiting a friends grave and make a pilgrim to Sitten, a little village called "Sion" before .... (My swiss friend stated this pilgrim is his last will for me...).
When there i went into a priory and had a night long talk with the prior... After that he invited me to have a meditation session in a cristalcave on the near mountain (what was normally only allowed for the monks but i thought my friend has made the ways for me...)

I did. And it was the most sacred moment i have had (til now!).
First it was a very amazing place. Crystals all over the cave and
a view over the mountainworld of Jura.
There was a little shrine in the back and a place to sit in front of it. Candles all around, a small fire place and firewood. First day was more about exitement about this ""find" and i wasn´t able to get the concentration to come into a meditative state as usual. But early in the morning a monk came in and brought me some food and fresh water. I asked him if he did this here and if he has tips for me. He just grinned and went away.
I was confused... The second day i started to meditate, viewing to the shrine. It was just normal as everytime and as i had no instructions i did it as usual. Concentrating on a certain symbol or point to get the full focuss on it. But nothing special happened... I started over and over again but no efforts...
(As i am not religious i felt a bit uncomfortable with the shrine, anyway...)
Next day the monk plus another one came again and brought me more food than the day before and more fresh water.
I told him about my disbelief in christian symbols and asked him again if he had some tip for me.
This time he talked: "First, all the christian symbolics represent a knowlege that is far beyond of what i am thinking they are. And second, don´t focuss on the shrine. It is your backing. Expand your view. Expand your conciousness to everything that is..." Then he went away, grinning.
Okay, i would give it a try. I turned around to the opening of the cave and this time i blended out all the symbols and else...
I expanded my consious mind from a little point of concentration to my body (did that before, tho it was merely easy), then i expanded it to the crystal cave. I felt a resonance i never felt before. It was a special kind of vibrating and i had a vision of a few, maybe a hundred monks that where doing the same as i did.
Most of them seemed to have same visons like i had in this very moment but i felt that they have failed. But there where two that where other. i felt a kind of happyness and light streaming through them and after they had this they, where jumping up and where running down the mountain. Happy.
I tried to focuss on their happenings but it vanished few times, when i tried.
Tho i had a hint. There was something to them i had to figure out. I slept in. Next day i woke up early (as usual with the first sunrays) and i thought i got it. I ate a bit of bread and and started to meditate. I quickly came to the situation from the day before and i tried to enter the akasha chronicles (did it before) for this place, but shortly i noticed it was a dead end. Tho after a quick lunch i started again at the point of expanding my view. my conciousness embodied my body then the cave. The i expanded to the mountain i was in. i saw the world around like i am the mountain itself! and then i came quick. I embodied the whole viewing field, the whole countryside the whole continent the whole earth, the moon, the other planets, the whole solar system, galaxy, all the other ones, the whole!
I was one with everything! I was happy! I was ... LOVE!
It stayed for a moment and then it went in reverse, but like i was seeing it starting from the beginning to today! Wow! It was amazing!
I just wanted to run down to the prior and tell him everything i undergone but there was a stopping feeling inside i couldn´t explain. So i followed it. I drank a tea and tried to understand what i just have expirienced but it was too much. I felt asleep.
I think i have slept for a whole day, when i was waked up by the monk. I tried to explain to him what i have encountered but i couldnt describe it well. But he just grinned and said: "Now you have to let your ego go! You have entered the one. You know how it goes. You are very talented. my prior said it to me, you will be different. yes you are! Go on. do the next!"
And i did. err... i just see i have not enough space to desribe it in one post tho i try to shorten it...
The next day i didnt do anything as i had to figure out what just was happening to me. I felt connected to this supreme source, i felt connected to everything around me and much more i felt... the energies flowing! ( Kinda like neo in matrix at the one scene!)
I... no there was no i anymore! I couldnt remember anything out of my life, but it was irrelevant i was one with everything! No i just was!

Well to make it short in the next two days i was going through a transcendention of myself. I felt i wasnt I anymore i was more my higher self that started to create a new ego for me. This is now what I am. Memorys came back but they aren´t important for me anymore (more for others to have something to tell to them).

So since this time i felt to be in harmony with nature and it provided me everything i needed.

Oh and surely my life goes on! With my new ego it works very fine. synchronities and wonders all the time!

Oh and after this happening the biggest one was the birth of my daughter! I was even more aware that she was pregnant than she was. I knew it would be a girl before the docs knew!

Oh and we have just got the confirment that we will get another baby in the next six month! Yeeha! ( and i knew it before...)

Oh and before i forget! After i was in switzerland i traveled on to spain. There i was in some of the alternative communities and surely i never was more happy than there (beside the above), than in any city or society!
