I hope if you are peaceful, happiness will automatically be there with you. But if you want to be happy, there may not be peace. You will be striving always to be happy and much disturbed at events and occasions unfavourable to you.
So I would rather want to be peaceful.
Happy for sure. I have met so many peaceful people that cannot achieve happiness. But everyone can find peace. No matter if all external chaos is around us we can find peace within. But that in no way guarantees our happiness.
Merely accepting things as the way they are brings serenity. But happiness is illusive to so many.
I have both so I do not have to chose either, I just need to chose to experience them and stay in the moment.
I do not agree with you that everyone can find peace. Peacefulness is very hard to achieve. There will always be elements disturbing your peace. So you should possess much determination and strength to achieve peace. It is not easily available.
So we have 2 diagonally opposite views here. While Venkatachari strongly feels that happiness is dependent on peace, though peace is hard to achieve. Whereas Ericdierker 's view is that being happy is preferred as not all peaceful people are happy!
You see. There is difference between momentary happiness and lasting happiness. If you want momentary happiness, it is very easy to achieve. But long period happiness is possible only when you are at peace. Through peaceful mind, you enjoy happiness
I think if I could just be happy the peace would come on its own.
