Causing happiness

We live in a universe governed by cause and effect - easy to say, less easy to realise that we are part of this process. Sometimes it is nice to think in terms of - 'what effect would I like to enjoy?' We might say 'happiness' and then we might ask ourselves - 'how can we generate happiness?' There are many ways to do this, some skillful and some not so skillful, but one sure way to get the desired result is to cultivate calmness.

If we are calm then happiness is sure to follow.

How! :) I'd tend to say if we are virtuous, happiness will follow... ;)

I reckon that would do it too, as long as we didn't expect anything
