HAPPY DAZE!

… the happiness of an atheist is neither the vacuous enjoyment of a fool, nor the short-lived pleasure of a rogue. It is rather the expression of a disposition that has ceased to torture itself with foolish fancies, or perplex itself with useless beliefs.
Chapman Cohen


The learn'd is happy nature to explore,
The fool is happy that he knows no more.

"As I go through all kinds of feelings and experiences in my journey through life -- delight, surprise, chagrin, dismay -- I hold this question as a guiding light: "What do I really need right now to be happy?" What I come to over and over again is that only qualities as vast and deep as love, connection and kindness will really make me happy in any sort of enduring way."

- Sharon Salzberg

“Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”

Wouldn't it be more fun to share images as well as text?

Unfortunately every time I try to share one of my Photobucket images, I get the message "there is no file at that URL." Not so happy at the moment.

I was thrilled and surprised at the content feeling of freedom and relief I experienced once I was finally about to admit to myself that I did not believe in religion and have no use for it in my life :D

I can't really say that being an atheist has anything to do with being happy. I've more or less always been one. It has shaped who I am so in that sense it definitely has an impact. However, the things that truly make me happy, Family and Friends, I assume I would have regardless. It is interesting that the countries that have highest level of satisfaction in their lives are those that are the least religious. The stuff about atheists being depressed by their very nature is certainly bullshit. :)

Why yes I have been happier since I realized I was an atheist. It was like having a blindfold removed. I no longer felt the open-minded confusion I used to feel when I tried to believe conflicting things that deep down I didn't really believe.
