Conventional “Happiness”

The doctrine passed on by our peers is that to achieve the state of happiness is to make the decision to focus on reaching that state of happiness. Happiness is within our grasp, our control, and inevitable.

Purpose-driven happiness

The New Happiness — Mindfulness

Decoupling happiness from purpose

Be happy first, we can always fill in purposes later.

Lost souls are not lost because they don’t have a purpose, but because they’re not happy. When they’re happy, naturally they will invite sparks into their life and eventually they get to choose any purpose they want.
