We know what will make us happy. We may tell ourselves that we don’t know or that it is a mystery, but that’s not true.
There are four aspects to the human person: physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual.
Physically. If you eat the right sorts of food, and you sleep regularly, and you exercise regularly, how do you feel? You feel great. You feel more fully alive. You’re healthier and you’re happier.
Emotionally. When you give focus to your relationships, how do you feel? You feel great. You switch your focus off self to others and what happens? You feel more fully alive, you increase your ability to love and as your ability to love increases your ability to be loved increases.
Intellectually. You take 10 or 15 minutes a day to read a great book. What happens? You feel more fully alive, your vision of yourself expands, your vision of the world expands, and you’re happier.
Spiritually. You take a few moments each day in the classroom of silence. What happens? You get clear about who you are, what you are here for, and what matters most. And that clarity gives birth to greater happiness.
Physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually, we know the things that fill our lives with happiness. We just don’t do them. Why? Because we are too busy. Too busy doing what? Too busy trying to be happy.
That’s the great modern paradox. Start doing the beautifully simple things that you know will flood your life with happiness.
