Normally everybody wants to be Happy. Why so?

Because “Happiness is a state of well-being”…

“…that is characterized by relative permanence, by emotion ranging from mere contentment to deep and intense joy in living, and by a natural desire for it to continue” (Insight on the Scriptures-Book according to the Watchtower Online Library).
Okay. Every normal person once to be happy. But how? Everybody wants to be happy, but who is really happy? On a long-term…
Is there anyone, who really knows? Who can tell us with hundred percent accuracy and security, how we can be Happy. As much as possible.
The happy answer is: Yes!

Whom would you ask, how it works to be happy as much as possible

If you buy an expensive electronic device. And let’s say you don’t know exactly, how it works correctly. Or in the best way. What do you do?
If there is any instruction manual from the designer of the electronic device, would you have a look in it? Just to make sure, that you use the electronic device in the best way possible. And not to damage it.
Surely this would mean wisdom in your case. Especially so, if you don’t know exactly, how to use it.
But do we have any instruction manual for us humans?

The only sure way to know how to be Happy

… Is to ask the creator. There is convincing proof, that humankind is created by someone, who is very intelligent.
Because: out of Nothing, can only come Nothing. So, there must have been someone or something, which exists already forever. The question is only, if it is something or someone.
Because the creation proves, that it needs to have an intelligent creator, the only logical conclusion is, that humankind comes from someone. Someone very intelligent. Who exists already forever.

Just imagine: if you would tell somebody, that a house including everything in the house and all electronic devices was not created by someone. But in time just came by itself. Do you really mean, that anyone would believe you? In Fact, what you think, what an every intelligent person think about you. If you really would believe this.
The same way, and even more so, it is with which surrounds us. And humankind itself. The Bible brings the logical conclusion:
“(Hebrews 3:4) Of course, every house is constructed by someone, but the one who constructed all things is God.”
You can get much more proof, that this is really the only logical conclusion. Much more proof, that there exists a creator, God. Someone who created the universe and everything in it. With amazing accuracy and intelligence and wisdom. And not by chance.
This God has a name: Jehovah. According to the Bible. Which is God’s word for humankind. Convincing proof for this, you can find on JW.org. The website from Jehovah’s Witnesses. And a very little bit proof, that the Bible is from God, you can find, if you Click Here.
