Well, there's really no difference. When the mind is peaceful, you automatically experience happiness.
But if you try to find happiness before finding peace, it’s much harder.
That’s because we generally look for happiness in conducive outer circumstances, things and relationships.

Find out how to do this and what the other two techniques for maintaining a peaceful mind are. Click here.
I will connect with you in three weeks. Until then...
