One therapist in San Francisco said that for those who have a lot of wealth from a young age, money is “the root of all stress and excitement.” He added that these people ” buy two or three houses, a car, spend money on all sorts of nonsense. And when they see that all this is in vain [that there is no happiness], they feel depressed and empty, not knowing what to do with their lives.” On the contrary, those who listen to Jesus ' advice to lead a simpler material life and devote time to spiritual pursuits are more likely to find true happiness.
The very word “Happiness” contains the definition of this concept – With a Part, I got my Part, ” I got “a good share,” I'm happy.
For my taste, the Bible describes the concept of happiness in the best possible way – it explains what is real happiness, and what is imaginary, false, illusory. Because there is a difference in which perspective to look at the subject-in the short term or in the long term. What looks like happiness in the long run from a momentary perspective looks like some kind of game and vice versa. Happiness is a good share that will last for a long time, and not some minutes of euphoria, for which there will be a reckoning later. “Happiness is pleasure without remorse.”
So how do you get this happiness? It is necessary to choose the right path to it, which lies through the acquisition of Truth, through righteousness, sanity, honesty, etc. In the Bible this is called bliss:
3 Blessed are those who keep judgment and do righteousness at all times.
(Psalm 105: 3)
1 Blessed are the blameless in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and seek him with all their heart
(Psalm 118: 1,2).
28 And he said, Blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
(Luke 11: 28)
7 Blessed are those whose iniquities are forgiven and whose sins are covered.
8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.
(Rom 4: 7,8)
