I am in San Diego at an internet marketing seminar, and posting from the hotel room. I found this cool passage about happiness that makes a ton of sense to me. Tell me what you think!
By Sri Swami Chidananda
Everywhere in this universe, in one respect man’s condition is the same. No matter how vastly different he may be in the outer appearance of his life, different countries, different races, different cultures, different languages, different ways of living, eating, dressing, etc., he may be completely different in all of these aspects, but there is one thing that is the same to all human individuals. And it is this factor that binds them into a global unity. If analyzed, it will be discovered that all humanity is engaged ceaselessly, day after day, from the cradle to the grave, only in trying to avoid painful experiences and in trying to attain that which gives them happiness.
I think he knows what he is talking about!
