Happiness is the Carrot on the stick that the world is obsessed with via the accumulation of wealth and material things. It's an illusive term and means different things for everyone. Primarily based on expectations placed on us via our parents, schools, friends, work, advertising and the media. It's another term used without any real understanding as is the word Love.
In my humble opinion they both mean the same at their core. Contentment and Peace. To discover what that means for us as individuals is the journey we have embarked upon over many lifetimes. It requires time spent in the classroom of the Earthly experience, and our efforts in terms of going inwards and examining ourselves at a very deep level. It can only happen on an internal level and one that is unique to everyone. It requires a Letting Go of the Ego. The most difficult task of all.
