That picture made me happy. I love little kittens. Thankyou Felstorm.

Aside from that : good films, books, music, art and food; especially beautiful weather, be it violent or clear; razorsharp conversations; clothes, cityscapes, peace and quiet, clean hair and my mate. It's suprisingly easy to achieve sometimes.

Personally I think the pursuit of happiness is just another spiritual pipe dream and our time could be much better spent in more arduous ventures.

Could you elaborate on this?

That's exactly how people die alone and lonely. Unfulfilled. It seems that people like this go through life distracting themselves from what they need: Happiness.

Do you really think that pursuit of happiness is futile?

I'm not following. Tell me more

What makes me happy?

"To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of the women!!!"

Oh, wait, that's the answer for "What's best in life"...

Drawing and writing stories, good books (especially old ones) good food, good sex, the sight of things that are aesthetically pleasing (including, but not limited to Ancient Egyptian art, human skulls, dark-skinned women and cats) driving cars and motorcycles, working with computers... those things make me happy.
You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once.

Stuff that makes me happy:

-Music (Led Zeppelin, APC/Tool, Shadows Fall, Marilyn Manson and Level Jumpers especially :-D)
-Making graphics and other art (my deviantart)
-Finding new software
-Finding new music
-Marb reds
-Driving in a freezing car at 3am on a busy, long stretch of highway

Probably other shit..

Apart from my signature message:

Having a massage from my husband, then sex after a fullfilling and busy day.

There are so many things...

good coffee, children at play, beautiful song, flowers in bloom....
high grades, laughter, sweet scents, feeling of healing wounds......

too much to list.

I do.

Things that make life more comfortable for me (and, therefore, conducive to my being "happy")..

~Loved ones (human and non-human animals)
~An entire day off (I work two jobs, so this can be quite a rarity)
~Receiving lotsa packages in the mail (everyday is XXXmas, says me!)
~A couple o' porterhouse steaks from Omaha Steaks (dot com), medium rare a'course,
~Books (currently, Dr. Albert Ellis' The Sensuous Person next will probably be I Was a Murder Junkie, a biography on G.G. Allin)
~Music (the CD player is chuck fulla Reverend Horton Heat at the moment *wiggles uncontrollably*)

#20010 - 01/10/04 05:36 PM Re: What makes you happy?

Anything that makes me stronger.

Finding out where real fellow Satanists post messages on the internet!

Along with many other earthly indulgences!

#20013 - 01/10/04 07:17 PM perhaps the answer lies within semantics [Re: SilverHammer]

What is it really to be "happy'? To be entertained? To feel contentment or satisfaction? To experience laughter?

For example I live in a drought area and it's raining right now and seeing it do so makes me feel 'happy'. However it's not so much happiness as relief from the tension of the heat and humidity as such.

Fulfilment for me more often comes through mastery and achievement of the tasks and goals I set for myself.

I guess for the idea of 'happiness' just too much relates to the idea of "peace and joy on earth" that the xian flock all too preaches to the common herd.
