    There have been times in my life when I would throw the book Happiness is a Choice across the room in disgust, and times when I would agree with it whole heartedly. Now is a healthy time in my life when I am agreeing with it.

    your highlighted part doesn't agree with the rest of the paragraph. the 1st sentence says something and the rest of the para says something completely different to the 1st statement.

    i personaly believe that you can control your own happiness. it is hard to remain happy if you have a lot of issue i understand. but when you are having problems your emotions and thoughts are the once which makes you worry. if you can learn how to be indifferent to your thoughts and emotions no incident in life can make you feel unhappy/bad.

    i know this is a very hard thing to do. but with practice i think you can achieve it.

    this theory = Buddhist enlightenment.

    Well said.

    The illusion of the I.
    Our thoughts and emotions?
    Not ours.

    A person is mentally ill.
    The doctors pay attention to the effect of the illness.
    Not to the cause.
    The ego of the insane is to be made well.
    What ego?

    The thoughts and the emotions create the ego.
    It is not there.

    How to leave alcohol and stuff?

    It is not about how.
    It is only about what.

    I think happiness is a choice
    Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    Happiness, like all other state of being, is a momentary capture. We all live moments to moments. Our minds allows us the fortunate (and unfortunate) capacity to segue from one moment to another, to create this 'thread'...this holistic whole. Giving us an I. Me. You. Them.

    Regardless of if we forget that the reality is that a moment can neither be created nor destroyed, only lived. Probability controls moments greater than any other thing.

    Happiness is what it is, when felt. Nothing more, nothing less.



    Yours (or my) considerations are moot. Talk of the human will, and it shall get you closer to the 'truth'.
