Who’s at the Helm?

The driving force behind everything I do is the desire for happiness, joy, peace, fulfillment, and satisfaction.  Lately, I’ve decided to look under the hood to find out where the control panel is that creates and controls these feelings? Does it lie someplace externally such as in specific outcomes, situations, events, objects, or even people, or does it lie within? I do know that it is possible, with a bit of effort, for me to generate these feelings at will, by simply imagining what they feel like. Does that mean that something “out there” is in the driver’s seat or am I the one at the helm, holding the reins?   …. and what about all those specific outcomes, situations, events, objects, and people?
