I already know that people can be happy while appreciating the trees, the sky, nature (physical), etc..
I wonder if it is possible to have that happiness withOUT connecting it to a physical "thing".
The closest thing I can think of is being happy that you exist (this human body - mind). You will be around yourself from the day you are born till
the day you die - so this can be unending happiness (until dying moment)
The only thing I can find that does not depend on something physical is silence/peace. Everything else seems to be connected to a material.
I LOVE Life (in other words, the way this unfolding is happening with all of these physical things)
I feel ONENESS with all (in other words, all objects contained in physical existence)
I feel HAPPY (because circumstances of physical existence arranged in a beneficial way)
Silence/Peace seems to be the only one that can happen without connecting it to another physical thing, like simple meditation, but imagine taking
that silence/peace with you where ever you go and keeping an awareness of it even WHEN thoughts and emotions do arise - and remember to return back to
this still place...
