Happy is located where?

“I am happy in the present moment.
.
.
I do not ask for anything else.
.
.
I do not expect any additional happiness or conditions that will bring about more happiness.
.
.
The most important practice is aimlessness, not running after things, not grasping.”
.
.
– Thich Nhat Hanh

.

my two cents:

.
Maybe we should rethink our concept of happiness.
.
Seems like fulfilling desires does not lead to happiness but suffering or addiction.
.
Practicing aimlessness is the opposite of how we Americans live.
.
We can have goals but must return from the future to live in this moment, content!
.
Being content with ourselves and our position in life opens up this moment, the only time happiness is available.
