The measure of happiness?

Is the measure of happiness within us or is it influenced by those around us? Is it amplified or deflated by economics? Is it handed down by genetics or do we develop our own formula at birth? Does climate effect it or do the stars influence it? Do you find happiness in God? Perhaps it’s all of these things and more. Perhaps it’s less. Is happiness something we look for or does it just happen?

If I had to come up with an answer on the spot, contentment comes to mind. When I am content I am happy. This answer however is to simple, but then simplicity makes me happy. Knowing ones self is key to having happiness. Once you know yourself and live within this knowledge, your happiness can be unlimited?
