Yes, it does buy you happiness. But then there are varying levels of 'Happiness'. It's happy to buy the car of your dreams, it's happy to design and build your new home. It's happy to have a holiday villa in the Carribean. It buys a *lot* of material happiness and the more you have the more material things you aquire. And there are instances where it helps us to be happy (medically) also because it's possible to buy into the finest care facilities. But ...<br />
<br />
Without good health it dulls that sensation of feeling happy. Depending on how sick some people are, it's hard to be happy in the fullest sense and, as far as mental health is concerned, it can be almost impossible to appreciate happiness in it's fullness when it isn't fully understood as a concept<br />
<br />
And yet there are those living with a meager income who can declare, hand on heart, they would change nothing and they have no need for more than they need.<br />
<br />
Subjective area, but one where it could be said there are more advantages than disadvantages.<br />
<br />

Money doesn't buy happiness, but poverty excludes it entirely.

Best Answer

Depends on the person.<br />
If the only thing that changed in my life now was that I found a way to become very wealthy, I'd actually be happy instead of just content and grateful to not be homelss or starving.

Absolutely NOT. <br />
<br />
You will never find happiness in things or other people. Happiness comes from with in. You are the creator of your own personal reality.<br />
<br />
If you find you don't like something....you change your mind.<br />
Look at it from a different perspective, through the eyes of someone else. When you do this it allows you the ability to have empathy and care about another being. You simply change your mind and when you change your mind you change the world around you. <br />
<br />
Now, what if changing your mind is the only free will you posses. Suppose your whole life follows a plan.... Like your cells following the code of DNA, or how the planets rotate around their suns. It appears to me as though there is a plan for all matter, as though it is all in the code. We can never be out of position. We can never, not be whole. We can never be lost. It is the Chi, The Way.<br />
What if the only free will we have, is how we decide to look at things? Whether we see them as choirs or pleasure. <br />
<br />
Change your mind and change the world... Your world. It can be beautiful or sad. You can suffer or have joy. Simply by changing the way you perceive the world. Remember your perceptions are not reality. They are only perceptions. Suppose someone is walking their dog in a park. The dog is running and playing ball with its owner. Suddenly the dog loses interest in the ball and starts to run away. From your position you can't see the owner but none the less he pulls out a dog whistle and blows it. If you have ever seen someone use a dog whistle you know if you are close enough to it you can hear the air as it rushes through but you hear no "whistle" because the pitch is too high. At any rate in this case you are far enough away you don't hear the whistle but the dog can and stops immediately and runs back to its owner. In your perception the dog just went back to its owner. You see, you didn't perceive the sound of the whistle, you didn't see the dog whistle so in your experience it didn't happen. This is of course a simple little example but I believe it cuts right to the heart of our life experience. Our perceptions are not reality and we can never know reality because we are caught up in it and are limited to a reality that is perceived by limited receptors.... Our eyes, ears, nose, sense of feel and taste.
