Happiness and unhappiness are states of mind. So therefore, they’re real causes cannot be found outside the mind. So if we have a peaceful state of mind we will be happy regardless of people and circumstances. If our mind is unpeaceful or agitated, then even if we’re in really good circumstances we will find it impossible to be happy. So, in other words it’s not what is happening that is making us happy or unhappy. It is how we are responding to those things that determines whether we are happy or unhappy. It is whatever our state of mind is like, that determines our happiness or our unhappiness.
