I like this excerpt from an article written on Buddhism and happiness:
The traditional "Three Jewels" of Buddhism consist of the Buddha (the example), the Dharma (the path) and the Sangha (the community). In this tradition, the community is just as important an element as any other in living a happy, purposeful life. Increasing your happiness and well-being is a difficult thing to do alone. It requires the support and love of others, and a sense of belonging to a community.
I enjoy being outdoors, photography, cooking, BBQs with friends, being an independent contractor, and the art of adventure. I am a low key, open minded Southerner at heart with a progressive view on the urban ecosystem.
