Meditation is supposed to be a practice of non-distraction. So what is so magical about the moment you realize you have become distracted?
Are you going to be a dog or a lion? And what that has to do with where to look for happiness? Ok so we've basically looked at the main problems with how we normally try to find happiness, looking in circumstances and things: 1) We aren't good at predicting, 2) The seeds of future dissatisfaction are planted within happy circumstances, 3) We don't know how to enjoy. Hopefully, that wasn't too exhausting, but we do need to properly diagnose our condition. Anyway, congratulations you made it to the payoff!
As promised this part will be a lot more fun. You are all going to be like lions, in the video below, Erric and Rinpoche explain where to look for happiness. All will be well, radically so.
Inspired by what's in the video or otherwise, leave your feedback below. We will respond, whether you like it or not ;)
We are terrible at happiness forecasting and most situations that make us feel happy contain the seed of future yuckos, now we have to consider if we even know how to really enjoy ourselves?
