QUESTION: Since taking your course I feel little increments of happiness and I am grateful. But what makes happiness suddenly seep in? Is it a decision? I don't remember being able to make that decision.
ANSWER: Some people like to say that happiness is a choice, and to some extent that's true, but every so often feelings of happiness catch us by surprise. I believe that this happens when - for whatever reason - we are in total harmony with ourselves and our environment. If it does happen, treat it like a beautiful sunset, without regretting its passage, but appreciating the fact that it happened.
