Can the Pursuit Of Happiness Be A Pursuit?

"MIND BODY SHOP" had this comment about my "STAGES OF HEALING" series:

"Happiness is not achieved by the conscious pursuit of happiness; it is generally the by-product of other activities."

Hmm... I don't exactly agree or disagree with that ambiguous statement. On the one hand, any number of activities can be engaged in under the guise of pursuing happiness that are in fact distractions from one's general inner state of unhappiness. Not a winning strategy. On the other hand, there are definite steps that one must take in order to become free enough to experience a genuine state of happiness for more than just fleeting moments. These are the steps I outlined in the Stages of Healing class.

Next up, the fourth stage of healing: "Realignment."
