  1. Randomnes is correct. So choose wisely. :-P I choose being happy! I choose my happiness and I allow it to affect a few others every day.

    Thank you for the post!

  3. Happiness for me means having dissolved my life wishes and life goals from feelings of shame, having made myself immune for criticism by others on my way of being and behaving, it means also to work hard to do good to others and look upon life from the bright side, and to accept that I can only change small/minor problematic aspects in life and that time will solve any of my private and more general major problems. Waiting for the time to do its work, requires patience; but realizing that solving a major problem is far beyond my power to solve it, gives me a quiet feeling of acceptance, allowing for happy feelings for what I can and must reach. Happiness does not exist without setting goals in life and trying hard to reach them. Happiness can exist with mental pain, as long as we do not try to think we can solve it in case the pain is far beyond our private control. Wisdom and patience is needed here. The time needed to wait can be in between 6 months to even 10 years.

    1. I realize that you have probably not understood the essence of what happiness means for a human beeing since so much pain is involved to "reach# it. What a shame to look upon other human beeing in this way.

  5. This may be a comment I shouldn't do.. but it's practiCe.. not practiSe. Yeah, I know.. it goes against the pylosophy of the blog, but you know.. "Don't be afraid of correcting people" should be something similar to "Don't be afraid to authority, respect it"

    Actually the author has used the word correctly in this place.As "practise"is a verb in this circumstances.


    "In many parts of the English speaking world (UK, Ireland, Australia, Canada, and South Africa) “practice” is the noun, “practise” the verb. However, in the U.S.A the spelling “practice” is more often used for both the noun and the verb."

    P.S : No offence.
