Our whole of society’s approach to happiness is fundamentally flawed, from the seekers to almost all of the happiness experts. The proof is in this article itself, which has four instances of the false and painful belief that things, people, or events “make” us happy or unhappy.

When you start acknowledging the miracle and mystery, and beauty around you, you will begin to know and experience the miracle and mystery, and beauty within you. Watch Peter Russell’s presentation on “The Primacy of Consciousness” below. (A must watch; just over an hour, and worth every minute.)
