Seven roads to happiness – Johan Galtung


Happiness is a state of mind, like health is a state of the body, and peace is a state of human relations. They require work, attention and consciousness not only to work better and be more attentive, but simply to feel the happiness, that sense of well-being. Much too many, much too much of the time, deprive themselves of happiness by being unaware, their senses only being triggered by unhappiness, by some sense of ill-being.

A happy person has an emotional surplus to share with others rather than complaining about deficits–like a healthy person not always talking about real or imagined diseases–like a peaceful person not always concerned with victory and domination and the security paranoia that others may win and dominate.
