Of all human endeavors, the least success humans have achieved is in the pursuit of happiness.
Happiness is unfortunately not a ‘ready to eat’ dish. One has to secure the raw materials and all the ingredients and then to cook it. What makes this process even more tricky is that while there are myriads of recipes out there, very few are genuine and even among these maybe none will work for you perfectly.The recipes are good as guidance but in reality, you have to work out your own recipe…
Happiness is cooked in receptacles called ‘relationships’ and your emotions provide the ‘energy’ for the cooking. Beware of uncontrolled heat that will burn the dish!
The most important relationship that we all have is with our own self. As such, the best receptacle to prepare the dish of happiness is our own self. Life provides us with a lot of raw materials for our dish of HAPPINESS and depending upon our taste and the type of recipe we like, we use special spices or particular ways of cooking…
This brings me to a book called ENCOURAGEMENT by Dr. Hank Seitz.
