In my opinion. you maybe happy if you have no money,but the probability that you will be happy but have lots of money is more than you will be happy but have no money

it's all relatvie isn't it..

depends on the situation..

i am hapy to be who i am and not hold grudges and be bitter..

but boy..
i am homeless as i left with nothing after my divorce,
and my son is with his dad and my Xiansheng is in u.s..
due to  the lack of money..

in this case?
it would surely help!!!!  lol

so no money cannot buy happiness in itself..cos if a person is miserable in disposition and pleased with nothing even there money can't help..
but in circumstances where it can transform someone's life..it can be a platform to work from...
money is an energy...

to use or to abuse as one is endowed with wisdom or not..
at the time i traded all my material wealth for internal peace in the heart..

now that is sorted ..
i have to build up my reservoire of material 'qi' again..
start from scrath zhidao?

this is my personal viewpoint..

it all depends on what we are doing trade with..

internal peace is the most important factor in my life..
money has to come second..............
but it is also important within it's own sphere of influence..so i will not lie and say it isn't important,..

money is not nesscessary to lead a happy lifestyle, however it is needed to make
the world go roung. Happiness is needed to stable someone's mental ability.

Yes, happiness is in the mind. Does anyone here really think that most rich people are happier because they are rich? No way, they have love problems, marriage problems, parent/kid problems, just like everyone. They may appear happy temporarily if they find pleasure in shopping or doing some expensive thing like a vacation or massages, or things like that... but those things are temporary and don't solve their problems.

And there are plenty of poor people stressed about paying their rent, etc, but at the end of the day they are capable of being thankful for what they DO have, and hugging their family, and sleeping peacefully at night.

So... true happiness is in the mind. It has nothing to do with money.
I am not rich.  :L

Very good points. I like your views.

I just want to add that I believe no money can buy happiness for a person who is suffering from clinical Depression. However money can buy him/her drugs and treatments.:)
