    like beacon said, when they are satisfied and content with what they have, and not wishing for something different

    I think these are some of the things that make a person happy

    1)resolution of doubt

    2)realizing how much Hashem loves you

    3)a sense of satisfaction with everything you are and have

    4)the feeling of gratefulness at all the good Hashem gives you

    5)the realization that no one or nothing has the ability to control your sense of happiness, being happy is a decision no matter what the circimstances. (Hashem gave us the ability to make that decision)

    6)conquering a negative midah successfully

    7)Being a giver

    8)feeling the true happiness of others

    ames-that one is loaded. You gotta be careful who you say that to. It can be taken wrongly, in a very harmful way.

    moish, funny that you say that cuz I meant the exact opposite. Like the people who believe themselves to have extreme measures of self control when it comes to eating (or not eating) and tolerating pain-vehamayvin yavin.

    Get it now? ames? moish?

    Happiness is knowing where you came from and knowing where you’re going. Even if you’re not smiling and laughing all the time, if you feel that life has purpose and everything you do is in sync with that purpose, then you are really happy.

    good job, ames!:)

    and moish, I never thought you were psychotic. It actually comes from feeling a need to be in control. It gives the person a very strong feeling of overcoming something “big”. I don’t want give anyone here any good ideas so we’ll stop right here.

    btw, once we’re discussing this, anyone ever watched/read The da Vinci Code?
