This.

The ideal happy lifestyle is being able to enjoy everything you have and not having any worries in life. The truth is that's intangible for virtually all of humanity. The key to happiness is just being able to appreciate what you get and not getting sucked into the bad things in life.

I think the correlation between happiness and intelligence is U-shaped. With the base of the U (maximum unhappiness) being probably slightly above average intelligence. This Is probably where you're smart enough to acknowledge everything that's wrong with the world, but not smart enough to internalize that it doesn't matter. It's obviously not that simple though, since willpower definitely plays a role in happiness. People who can get themselves to eat healthy and exercise regularly tend to be happier. Does seem like the dumb and the actually highly intelligent tend to be happier than those of us in the middle though.

Why would we need love ? Why would we need happiness ? We are nothing, we are candles in the dark. When we'll die, we'll be forgotten in ten years. And it's like our love, our happiness, never existed.

It isn't easy at all. Reading Eckhart Tolle is a great beginning start. Be careful though, it's EXTREMELY easy to get frustrated if that makes any sense. In a sense he talks about rocks being alive so there's an example as to how ridiculous it will seem a lot of the time. Do you really expect the answer to life to be one we will understand ever, much less when first hearing it.

You misunderstand, it's an unattainable ideal. You don't achieve it but the act of striving for it is what makes people truly happy. I'm not stupid, I plan for the future with information in the past but I do not dwell on it. I take what I need from my experience and do what I can for the future and that's all I do. Not a single extra unnecessary thought goes into it.

Dont think that was anons point though. Circadian clocks are different to actually perceiving time pass.

But you can change that, and knowinh is half the battle. You should also understand the diversity of mankind (not in a stupid new age "special snow flake" belief...) and the importence of you in all of it. Sure you might want to big like Arnold, or smart like Einstein, but you are fundamentally a different person, and you are important in the existence around you, as much as other people are important. Thats why you must empower yourself, and find your cause... When you make something of yourself, make it the biggest it can be, but make it for yourself and believe in the "I".

Also you shold read "13things strong people dont do"...Great book, and I think it will help you very much.

I am not sure why keeping phrasing this question as if happiness is something that can be found. As far as my experience, happiness is often the product of some of our actions.

If you wish to be happy then you only have to maximize the amount of those actions that will lead to the desired feeling. If you start seeing life in this matter, then you are actually taking control of what happens in your life.

Perhaps a good mental exercise would be for you to imagine your hypothetical funeral. The question is: what would you like them to say about you? How would you like to be remembered? Were you in shape? Were you well studied? big family?

If you play with that mental exercise then you will start finding what type of person you'd like to become.

With a little discipline, you can start sculpting your own character and personality.

want to be in shape?
hit the gym

Want to play an instrument?
start practicing

Want to be a giant faggot who play self pity games?
You are on your way, now!

>>685563063
The truth is that true happiness is when your self-perception matches the perception the rest of the world has of you.

All of these other answers: money, intelligence, sex, drugs etc. only exacerbate the chasm between those two realities. Once you see yourself as the world sees you there is no need for lies, shame, delusion or discontent. Because you've transcended the human ego, the human neurosis and all the baggage in between, and you are now fully living, and realising how staggeringly improbable it is to even be alive.

Well yes being happy and content are human notions. But what is happiness other than the absence of misery? If a dog is not miserable through suffering is it not happy? Also dogs may not be self aware but im pretty sure they have a basic set of emotional states. I dont see how thinking that an animal can in fact feel happiness makes me a furry.

White isn't a race.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_contemporary_ethnic_groups

And in any case, "white people" have always been a minority. The majority of the world are just various shades of brown, and only a few sit on extreme sides of the spectrum - 'white' people and 'black people'.

We all started out as black then, in changing environments, our physicality evolved to suit our climates. Now, it is easier than ever (and getting easier) to migrate to non-indigenous regions of the world and soon (not that soon; thousands of years) we'll all, for the most part, be various shades of brown, with very few people remaining on the extreme ends of the spectrum: 'black' or 'white'.
>>
>>685574806
Yeah if the jew get their way, sure. Lol.
>>
>>685563063
There isn't one. Let me explain to you how it works.

You go to school, go to college. Get a good job, find a great girl. It turns out that you love this girl and you know you want to spend the rest of your life with her. Everything is good and fun.

UNTIL, shit starts getting boring. She no longer wants to have sex on a daily basis. Suddenly the crazy sex that used to go on at the park doesn't go on anymore.

You crave something else. You cheat on this girl you love and realize it is pretty damn easy to hook up with random girls. You keep doing it. You keep cheaitn and fucking all these girls while you have a relationship with this other woman you love.

You love her, you can't live without her but you still cheat because you like the taste of a different pussy and you hate monotony. Life is shit, you realize you're shit but there's nothing you can do to change it.

There's no happiness.
