Understanding of Happiness

catWhile it is easy to recognize and disassociate with anger, happiness can sometimes be a more subtle emotion that may not be observed or let go easily.  Happiness includes pleasure, desire, preference and excitement.  Like all other things, happiness will also cause suffering because it is impermanent.  To be joyful without suffering is when we understand the true nature of happiness through observation.  This understanding will free us from attachment and greed.
