Feel Happy for Nothing!

Can we feel happy for nothing, for no reason? Normally, no, for we are all programmed to feel happy if, or happy when, something conducive and acceptable to us happens. In a way, we tend to postpone our happiness, by saying that "I will be happy if this happens or that happens, or when this happens or that happens". And the 'this' and the "that" do happen at varying frequencies, often randomly and arbitrarily, and we feel happy. But once the event or occurrence or person or whatever caused our happiness is over or spent or gone, we are back to our old selves, often in a survival mode, waiting and anticipating the next big "this " or "that" to experience the next bout of happiness.

The only people, who seem to be happy for nothing, are children or people whom we call mad, or imbalanced or delusional. A normal man is not supposed to be happy for nothing. He or she cans only show or experience happiness, for a reason.

Do we really need a reason to feel happy? Yes and no. Yes, because it’s easier to feel happy when we think of something good or something good happens. No, because then we place the control of our happiness somewhere outside us.
