To be happy, we should have no unrealistic expectations, and an idea of the meaning and purpose of life.
Our thoughts come spontaneously from our experiences and our attitudes, which we can shape to give us peace of mind. It’s best if we say to ourselves, ‘There is no such thing as fate, nor a force of evil.’
We should work at understanding people and our relationships, and get better at making decisions, making allowances, and be more accepting of things that irk.
We use words without thinking of their meaning.
Do we mean what we say, and can we say what we mean?
Can we make time to consider matters such as integrity, honour, truth and trust, hate and violence, sects and cults, leaders and heroes, and those of the cloth?
There is a God for all, but not as we know it; and not just for some, but, truly for all, even for those in denial and doubt.
This thought-provoking work of practical philosophy moves us towards an elusive contentment. Of course, we want to be happy, with a more orderly life and priorities in better balance but without the signposts here, that may be an illusion.
