Happiness, the complex experience of joy as a result of the fulfilment of hopes, desires, expectations, positive events, being at one with oneslf and with one’s experience of the world. Happiness can also derive from favourable conjunctions of events, of fate (luck) as well the state of wellbeing, inner harmony and satisfaction with one’s own life (being happy). The feeling of happiness does not derive from the amassing of things that bring happiness, but rather from one’s personal capacity for happiness. The capacity for happiness can be numbered among the attributes of personality because someone capable of happiness is able to elevate the value of life and the readiness to recognise ethical values per se and thus to realise them.
