The myth is that happiness comes from things, circumstances and people. But that can’t be because external conditions are always in the process of change. The pleasure of today is the pain of tomorrow. But most people believe this; else the advertising business would collapse.

Just do a good deed and you will see the proof. But, if natural happiness is genetic, why are we unhappy? See www.happinessgenes.com for the reason and the solution with epigenetics.
