But the truth is: nothing WILL bring you happiness.
Do people think life is a restaurant?
"Yes, I'd like a steaming plate of happiness, with a side order of hipness."
Happiness, or whatever that word is a stand-in for, must be created.
If life is a restaurant and you order happiness, I thing you will get an heart attack when you receive the the addition.
More seriously, true happiness cannot be created. You got to open your heart to it. If not, you will lead the perfect life, like having a loving wife, lots of money, all that you want, even get in touch with ''god'' and you will still be unfulfilled.
