Lasting Happiness?

Earning lots of money. Having a physically beautiful partner. Being famous. Owning a beautiful home. Going to the best restaurants. Owning the latest gadgets. Having powerful friends. Traveling the world. Being in great shape. Driving a beautiful car. Being successful. Being handsome or beautiful. Being looked up to. Being rich. Getting lots of attention. Being able to date anybody. Being intelligent. Being powerful.

What do they all have in common? They have a beginning and an end hence they are not real.

How can something that is not real bring us lasting happiness? It cannot. Only real things can.
