I’ll simplify that. Are you in a happy place, is your world a happy place?
There is so much evidence for YES and NO sides of this question, but I believe this question serves a larger purpose which is to clarify how we think, what we believe and how we each see the world.
If we see it as happy, we are likely happy. If we see it as unhappy, we are likely unhappy. How we see the world is how the world is – times 7.5 billion different people. The world is not what we see as much as how we see it.
