A Greek philosopher wrote about two types of happiness, one involved sensory delights such as silk feathers, beautiful pearls, attractive colours, tasty food, attractive lovers, fancy cars, luxurious homes; and soft pillows.
Another involves eudaemonic happiness when is sentimental happiness such as, doing volunteer work, receiving a hug, listening to or telling a joke, receiving or giving a compliment, being around somebody you respect and admire, mutual kindness between friends, and this is a different form of happiness that is good for both your body and mind.
Most people think eudaemonic happiness is unnecessary or unattainable but just consider it’s opposite, imagine living with somebody who is constantly yelling at you, humiliating you, controlling you, accusing you, fighting with you, enraging you, stressing you out, annoying you and making loud noises when you are trying to sleep or concentrate, would you be happy living with that person? Even if they were beautiful and rich?
The fact is, all humans desire eudaemonic happiness, some just don’t realize it, because they were never exposed either to a high density of eudaemonic happiness or to the lack of eudaemonic peace so that they would have something to compare it too and having money and sensory stimulation without respect and peace and love and meaning, will make you miserable; Also, sometimes money decreases your chances of Spiritual happiness because it interferes with your moral sensibilities or the moral sensibilities of your companions, which is why most of the men I know who flaunted their money ended up married to abusive or unfaithful gold diggers.
