Some things that lead to a happy life


1.

Here are the things that lead to a happy life:

Study someone whose life is happy.

Find a teacher whose values you admire.

Have a child in your life.

Associate with people whose judgments you trust.

Look to people whose lives serve as an inspiration.

Make small the gap between what you say and what you do.

 

2.

There is no happiness without harmony.

There is no harmony without respect.

Therefore, respect others and you will find happiness.

 

3.

There is no happiness without justice.

Therefore, if you want to be happy, act justly.

 

4.

Begrudging others leads to disharmony.

Without harmony there can be no happiness.

Therefore, let go of grudges and restore harmony.

In a harmonious world, happiness is possible.

 

5.

Happiness at another’s expense is an offence against the community.

Happines that is self-centered is short-lived.
