In this Episode we will begin looking
at the relationship between love and happiness. We will look
in particular at one of the two questions we ended with last
time: How do you know when you are in the flow of the Plan or
Process of my suggested definition of happiness? What is the
everyday evidence we look to in holding onto the hope of this
approach to happiness? Several episodes back, I was looking
for an explanation of happiness that would meet several
demands. One was that this would be accessible to all people.
Two, that it would be durable through difficult times. Finally, it
would offer a more encompassing worldview than the simple view
"Love will make you happy" or "happiness is moderation in all
things." It is my hope that this episode will show how these
demands can be satisfied.
In the next episode we will take up the last of my two questions, how
do the different loves relate to my suggested definition of happiness.
