To lead the good life is to fully experience the activity of living – singing, dancing, eating, playing, loving, helping, meditating.
This is very different from looking for happiness in achievement. That only leads to worry and judgement.
It’s important to know what your desires are, what gives you joy, what gives you pleasure. Choose what feels good and right, what gives you a sense of fulfillment and abundance. Be careful not to follow what you are told they are
The most harmful desire is to wish that your life to be different than what it is. To be happy is to live fully the life you are given.
