If God asks you to choose one between Peace and Happiness, What will you prefer?

Peace can be had in our time, while happiness is a warm gun. Seems an easy choice.

But happiness can be had with or without peace, while peace depends heavily on happiness.

May all beings have true happiness.

Well,

I'm of the opinion that both are related, i.e. Peace (of mind/with oneself) and happiness. If one is at peace with the self then the person will be happy and if the person is happy then he/she will be at peace? Isn't it?

Cheers,
Raj.

I'd rather stay away. How do you know that, you say "Peace" and the next moment you are not dead ?. You know, God may choose to rest your soul in peace .

On the other hand,if you said "Happiness", you may end up in the mental asylum. Crazy but Happy, nevertheless.

Actually, in either case, you'd not get to know, so may be you'd like to ask either of them.Or may be both.
That's my view, you see.
