Mantra - Happiness Is
... as wise friend and Buddha Buddy SMB suggested some time ago: "Happiness is not a product of something, but just a state of being. It just is. So it is always there."
... perhaps like air, or a small animal in the deep forest, or a star far away — happiness is, and joy is simply noticing it!
