meaning is happiness

The Dalai Lama spoke these words, “I believe the very purpose of our life is to seek happiness.  That is clear.  Whether one believes in religion or not, whether one believes in this religion or that religion, we are all still seeking something better in this life.  So I think the very motion of our lives is towards happiness.”

Is happiness what you seek?


In other set of wise words Jacob Needleman wrote, “We are born for meaning, not pleasure, unless it is pleasure that is steeped in meaning.”

Two approaches to life, happiness and meaning.  Can you find happiness in meaning?  I think many, many people are seeking both happiness and meaning.   Finding meaning may result in happiness, what do you think?

If you are seeking happiness and found it elusive what were you seeking?
