This is actually a different approach to meditation than any I have ever used. I may try it.
Enigmatically, happiness is no laughing matter. Last week’s article suggested that your happiness is a key to success in life. It is central to one’s functionality, the ability to get things done, overcome obstacles, set wise goals and diligently pursue them. Whether you believe in heaven or hell, wish to serve merely yourself, or instead wish to “serve” God, serve Jesus, or serve humanity — it’s essential to optimize your functionality, your effectiveness in life.
Fortunately, apparently, that can be fun!
