Most people don’t understand happiness. And it robs them of feeling blissful every day. Happiness isn’t tied to achievements, purchases, or other life events. In fact, thinking of happiness this way creates untold suffering.
Because pain and pleasure are two sides of the same coin. Your brain has certain homeostatic mechanisms that create pain if you’re feeling too much pleasure and vice versa.
Here’s why that’s good news:
You have a baseline level of peace and well-being you can tap into regardless of what positive or negative external events happen.
