On Happiness, Joy, and Bliss

Untitled from Daniel Coffeen on Vimeo.



Happiness is contingent — you're happy because something happened.

Joy is not — joy is the exuberance of this life.

Bliss is transcendent, a wallowing in the infinite. Where bliss takes leave of this world, joy remains utterly of this world.

This is sooo great and cool! Thank you for doing all that you do :)
How to start feel the "joy" of life? Is it up to me? Or all these things (happiness, joy and bliss) just are existing..just are... without our control? (by control I mean conscious thoughts, and different look to the World (different = is different from others :) ))
PS - I hope I'm not too boring :)
