1981: The Lesson of Life
The beginning of Wisdom is when you are made truly serious by this Lesson of life: The achievement of Happiness is always minimal, temporary, and ultimately unattainable. You cannot become Happy. You can only be Happy. Happiness is not a matter of subsequent action (or seeking) but of Prior Being. Happiness is the Native State of Being Itself.
Therefore, Happiness must be presently Realized, since It cannot ever be attained on the basis of Its prior non-Realization. Until human beings take this Lesson seriously, the mere observation of un-Happiness in general will only be part of the psychological process whereby they become constantly re-motivated to seek Happiness by various conventional or traditional means.
