Do you think anything other than mental satisfaction is necessary for being happy?
It depends where you're at in your life. If you're on your own and have no dependants or other binding commitments then you are indeed free to choose how happy you want to be and what that means to you. If you have responsibilities, you are forced to perform tasks that may not make you happy but have to be done. In that case, mundane necessities such as earning a living or taking care of children may interfere with the idea of not needing anything else but mental satisfaction to be happy. Sadly, for most people, there will be other considerations to achieving happiness other than just being mentally happy. But it's a nice idea and it would be lovely if all one needed to be happy was mental satisfaction. One could argue that the acceptance of some basic truths in one's life would lead to a peace of mind and therefore some measure of happiness; however, some people have such rotten lives that it may not be possible for them to accept the reality of it. There's my two cents; it will be interesting to see what thoughts other folks have on this subject.
Being happy is a state of mind. If the mind feels happy, it is because of certain conditions fulfilled, or that the mind "decides" to be happy even without external conditions being fulfilled. "Mental satisfaction" or "mental decision" as such is a necessary criterion to be happy.
Happiness is a mental state. Usually our moods are derived from the higher cortex in our brain.
How do you get mental satisfaction?
I doubt you can buy it since it's a mood.
Unless you buy mood- altering drugs.
There are some people who are born happy.
But I think it is a natural brain process a is sadness or anger.
There are transmitters which excite the brain which makes one happy.
They have done MRI's of people who are happy and those who are depressed.
I've seen them and there is a vast difference between the two.
A happier brain has more yellow in it compared to a person who is depressed. A depressed persons brain shows little or no color meaning less transmitters which keep the brain communicating with other parts of the brain.
