God, being Love, is also happiness.

A Course In Miracles, Lesson 103, in part:

God, being Love, is also happiness.

Happiness is an attribute of love. It cannot be apart from it. Nor can it be experienced where love is not. Love has no limits, being everywhere. And therefore joy is everywhere as well.

I was always a little confused by "love" as it's normally understood. You "love" your spouse and your child, but you hate a colleague or terrorists. 
And now I understand, via the course. "Love" which is specific and limited, is not really love. It may have elements of the true, unlimited love, but it's mostly a business game the Self runs: "I love you, and you love me, so we both gain".
