Happiness Comes From Within
In the Talmud (Piker Avos 4:1), Ben Zoma said: Who is wise? He who learns from every person. Who is strong? He who conquers his desires. Who is rich? He who is satisfied with what he has. Who is honored? He who honors others.
The Torah is teaching us to not to seek or demand happiness through any external factors, but rather to depend only on ourselves.
