I forget who said it but something like happiness is the pursuit of a worthy cause or goal.
Personally I think happiness is great but it’s not enough to whether the storm of life, unless one is highly blessed, privileged, or ignorant
Sometimes I’m in states where everything occurs as pure happiness bliss-at risk of sounding cliche-incense smoke in beam of sunlight, moving at the perfect pace, chilling in my own existence
Alas I have discovered that ‘Alpha’ is not the path of least resistance, my set point for baseline happiness has been raised, I can be at peace, in flow, abiding in masculine nothingness lol but to feel happy in the conventional sense,I have to be pursuing and effectively achieving worthy goals. Otherwise something feels off. Breaking into new levels of freedom could be a good way of putting it.
Maybe happiness is just the absence of trauma, suffering, and pain-something we are all working towards in some way.
The key is to have results be their own game, and feeling good, enough, worthy, and an absence of pain it’s own game. When the two collapse- which they inextricably do to 99.9 % of people- downward spirals ensue
If you need to get the girl to be happy-you will fail
outside of a desperate, impoverished, or survival context, if you need money to be happy-you will fail
If you love or enjoy the process of moving towards better results with those things-you will succeed.
So True lmao
