14 I have seen all the works that are done under the sun, and behold, all is vanity and vexation of spirit.
15 That which is crooked cannot be made straight, and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.
16 I communed with mine own heart, saying, "Lo, I have come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in the land; yea, my heart had great experience in wisdom and knowledge."
17 And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly. But I perceived that this also is striving after the wind.
18 For in much wisdom is much grief, and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.

~Solomon the Mage

Yes I'm happy. The saddest day of my life will be the day I have nothing left to learn, so you could say knowledge contributes to me being happy. It's not the only reason, though.

lost soul: I completely agree. Happiness is a choice, and the only thing that will make you unhappy is clinical depression or you letting yourself be unhappy. I'm happy because I wan't to be happy.

There are moments in my life when I am serily happy, then there are days that I am content.. But over all I am a happy person, I look to find good in all the things that I do. When it dose not feel good, I close it like a book. But over all I am happy..

Yes. There is nothing to be gained by wallowing in misery. Happiness is largely a matter of attitude.

Example: I do not fail, I have experiences from which I learn what not to do. I'm happy that I'm smarter now and won't _______ again.

I have found that as I get older, with the right attitude, it gets easier and easier to experience happiness.

Happy with my mental state.  Yes sometimes.  More so if I had less responsiblilty and more time to enjoy life.
Happy with my drugs. Almost, but I need more.  :smile:
Happy with my place in the Universe.  Absolutely not.  I am a lost soul drifting aimlessly.
Happy with my job.  Oh Fuck NO.  My job makes me want to kill people. 
Happy with my home.  No.  Home is a cage.
Happy with the society I live in.  NOOOOOO!!!!  :frown:  Fucking politicians and corporations destroy any happiness not associated with money.  I do not give a fuck about money except that it enables me to do some things that make me happy for short peroids of time.
well counting them up the NO's have it.  So I guess not.  But the drugs help.  :cool:

Without self-doubt, there would be no desire for improvement.
Without boredom, there would be no motivation.
Without unhappines, there would be no realization of happiness.

It's like the saying "Good can't live without evil".  In a certain series of books of whome I willnot name, there are three gods of magic; Solinari, representing good, Lunitari, representing neutral, and Nuitari, representing evil.  All the mages who have been accepted into the "conclave" (the 'society of magic users') realise that balance must be maintained or else chaos will rain supreme. The white robed (good) wizards do what they do because it a projection of themselves, being good natured and wanting to help. The black robed (evil) wizards do theirs also as a choice of their beliefs. The red robes do theirs as they believe both sides have good points, but realise that balance must be maintained (as well as this is a projection of their personal beliefs).  Without the other two, one would reign supreme and not be contradicted by others with different ideas.  The one being in power would not be challenged by new ideas, and somewhere down the lines someone would make a bad decision as it would not be contradicted.  They realise the balance must be maintained, and so they work together with the common interest being the magic.  Humanity is similar in that we have evil, we have good, and we have people who don't do too much.  The definition is hard to define, as everyone has a different point of view, but in the case of humanity we have numerous interjecting variables (opinions), so one idea is always being replaced by another, whether it be better or not to the bennefit of the species as a whole.  This is why people of power (Bill Gates comes to mind) should NOT be in these positions as it is ONE persons point of view.  Microsoft as an example, they create products based on what THEY think people need. Granted they have some good ideas, but with the understanding that they can lead people on by (metaphorically speaking) flashy graphics, somewhere along the lines personal interest will conflict with unitarial bennefit.

I know that I kind of got off on a rant here, and I planned that when I started as I feel like writing philosophy, but without one, the other wouldn't be recognized as so.

Happiness and unhappiness are relative. There are no constants with emotions, as uncountable variables are constantly updating our central processing unit more commonley known as the brain. Therefor the original post ("Are you happy?") is obsolete (as per my explanation - I'm not saying this peron's post is indefinately obsolete), being that A) no time frame has been specified for the happiness to be judged upon, B) the happiness factor has not been requested from a constant input (life in general, right here right now, current job situation, etc). One can assume the posted meant life in general, but once again there was no specification.

blah. I'mma shut up now. It's bed time.

I'm fairly happy.

Although all my life I've been pretty impenetrable to unhappiness.  I notice humor and good in alot of things, and I am not easily upset.  Stability and control makes life somewhat easy. :smile:

Yes, I would say as a rule I am happy, I prefer the word, 'content', though.

Recently though I lost my account as Mr. Mushrooms which means a lot of important contributions for the Shroomery are gone.  My sticky thread which helped people id mushrooms so they wouldn't die or get sick, several nice threads in this forum, and some cool pictures as well.

Nothing is permanent in life.

Still I wihs this would not have happened.

Cheers,

Bumped for a "brand new" member.  We were talking puppet accounts so I bumped mine.  MutantBobono couldn't find it in the user list.

This.

So you lost your account then got it back?
Or that was one of your puppets that got banned?

My original account was Mr_Mushrooms, registered in June '02.  I was posting in OTD when it vanished and I was unable to get back in.  So I created ElGreco to let website and feedback know about it.  They fixed it and I continued posting.  I left the Shroomery in '04 and had my old account deleted.  I re-registered in May '08 under this name, Mr. Mushrooms.

Now you know "the rest of the story."
