But how to be happy is a great question for everbody to get the answer. Most of the people search for the happiness around them according to their material possession status and few try to get the happiness through their spiritual progression.
Apart from those two, many people try to derive happiness from acquisition of knowledge, looking beautiful, creating impact in the socity, being admired by all etc.etc. But, such wishes are landed at the point of competition to look better, to know more and to create impact.

But they become victim of jealousy, in tolerance, leg pulling etc., which demotivates them from working hard and force them to lead a routine life. But few of them love to expose themselves to the challenges, invite criticism for their deeds. Their basic objective is the search for the truth, doing good for all and they want to refine their journey through such systems.
Some try to get the happiness through love, loving their parents, spouse and children in family, spending hours of the day with them, interacting with them. The pervasiveness of love connects them to eternal happiness. But over possessiveness, insecurity of loosing the relationships brings difficulties and worries.

A person, who understands the Atman, its threefold experiences and objects to satisfy is not driven by the false momentary pleasure. It is not elated or depressed after enjoying the goodness and beauties. It remains like fire.
