Happiness can also be found in the depths of the abyss, it is the state of being happy, regardless of external or internal factors. The need to
understand the realization of the cause of happiness is important to find what you are searching for. Happiness is a general word for numerous
emotions such as love, gratitude, compassion. You must realize that it is the emotions that stimulate your happiness and your mind coupled with desire
is causing this stimulation. Realize that and you will understand.
Desire is a part of the path to be enlighten, without it, we will be stranded in an everlasting cycle or worst, not moving forward. Desire moves our
awareness into action may it be physical, emotional mentally or spiritually. When desire is use in physical we attain materialistic possessions,
emotional we find happiness, mentally we gain wisdom and spiritually we reach buddhahood.
Dali lama once said, desire is an instrumental part of enlightenment, you will not attain Buddhahood if you don't desire it.
It is the desire for the wrong things that you must let go.
