“Happiness is not a state to arrive at but a manner of traveling.” -Margaret lee Runbeck 
Hmm, let’s see- “the joy is in the journey,” and “happiness is not a destination, it’s a journey”- there are many other sayings, I am sure you can add a few. Yet, no matter how many times we have heard this it will mean something different at each moment for each experience, for each journey we are on.
Maybe there is just one big journey, from birth to death, or birth to after-life, or death to after-life and back to birth again, traveling through time- can’t we just be happy with that? Do we really need any other vehicles? Do we really need new cars, cruises, plane trips or rocket ships? Perhaps, for fun, but not if we are going to be miserable without them.
