Disney La-Haut: What is Happiness? Taichi Yin-Yang, Buddha 迪斯尼：快樂是什麼？太極，陰陽，佛陀2012 November 22 0 By Tomas 黃炎
Disney La-Haut:Happiness is not about being immortal nor having food or rights in one’s hand. It』s about having each tiny wish come true, or having something to eat when you are hungry or having someone’s love when you need love.”快樂不是長生不老也不是你的手裡握有食物或權利。它是每一個微小的願望能夠實現，或者當你餓了的時候有吃的食物,或者你需要愛的時候有人來愛。“
I cannot agree with this quote. Here is my understanding of the teaching of buddha: immortal is a desire that cannot be satisfied. The things we own cannot bring us anymore satisfaction and hence no more happiness. According to the Chinese wisdom, everything in our world is composed of the Taichi Yin-Yang structure. Here we have Taichi: happiness in our world; Yin: Supply, Mine; Yang: Demand, Desire. When we have a Yin (Supply) and a Yang (Desire) and they are balanced, that will bring us satisfaction and hence happiness. However, we can’t always get what we want. In Economics we have 『The resources to satisfy the multifarious human wants are limited or scarce』. When Yin and Yang is not balanced, then we cannot get happiness. When Yin is less than Yang, we are in a HOT state, Buddha call this the dis-satisfaction of not getting what we want. When Yin is more than Yang, these people might be having lots of good karma, but suffering still arise when their luck are all used up. The Evil Yin is called the dis-satisfaction of associating with what we hate. The Evil Yang is called the dis-satisfaction of associating with birth, aging, sickness and death.
So what is real happiness? The Four Noble Truths and The Eightfold Path.
