Happiness

"Why is happiness the wrong goal, Shaman?" Asked the young girl, not completely believing that to be the case.

"When you pursue something and get it, you complete your task. It becomes done and finished."

Confused, she asked again, "and how can one be happy, then?"

The Shaman stopped and took a calm, deep breath. "With the right goal, happiness comes as a byproduct."
