Happiness…

Boy with lotus flowers in waterWhen we speak about happiness, we are often mixing up two quite different and largely independent states — two levels of satisfaction.

One the one hand, there are those pleasurable feelings which come with sensory-level experiences.

On the other hand, there is a deeper level of satisfaction, deriving not from external stimuli but from our own mental state.
