Great piece, thanks. The part in the beginning about the history of the word “happy” in English is fascinating.

As Joko Beck, Pema Chodron, and other great Buddhist teachers have said, you can’t start moving toward contentment until you realize that nothing will ever satisfy you… give up hope that you need to be somewhere or someone else, ever!

Paraphrasing there, but yeh!
