Happiness

My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I'm Happy. I can't figure it out. What am I doing right?.

That must be what happens when we get rid of wants. At least that's what monks, yogis, and other mystics have always told us. I know when I practice (through either meditation, or hypnotic trance) being free of wants, that joy, calmness, peace, confidence and, yes, happiness seem to permeate my awareness.
