Exposing Selfless Policy towards Happiness There are many diverse ways of becoming happy while living our lives. Those of monks’ and Tibetans make up a small group, followed by Chinese. Others come from the Philippines, Brazil, Peru and even the United States. Some become like Dalai Lama, some obtain partial degree of happiness and still others never obtain happiness as the lengthy grieving problems would prevent them from achieving happiness entirely. Many stay in the mountains indefinitely, where they spend the rest of their lives contributing to the exploration of self, while being denied the worldly pleasures that are enjoyed by the rest of the world. Daniel Gilbert and Robert Thurman’s thesis in “Immune to Reality” and “Wisdom” are designed in such as way that they discriminate against those who are not sufficiently exploring the self. The worldly suicides of populations are largely due to ineffective and disorganized behaviors in personalities. However, there are terrific advantages in not allowing the self to deteriorate us. For some of us, it is too hard, so finding happiness for most of us people is never completed.

If someone says that they are happy that means either his surroundings were sad or he does not know what happiness is. Money is happiness and happiness is like money, you want more and more till you are no more. No man has yet acquired happiness to its fullest. There is always a stage beyond the current one. Of course there has to be this stage where innocence gives a shelter. If you fall into this category then happy equals sad hence everything is fine and you have nothing to attain on this road. Is there any necessary connection between our actions and the happiness of others?
