Recipe for a Happy Life
The recipe for a happy life has many ingredients that must be managed. However, you can break it down into three basic areas. Think of Meaning as the meat, Social Engagement as the potatoes, with Satisfaction as the spice. Note that Satisfaction is not irrelevant. It adds or subtracts from a life full of Meaning and Engagement.
The Meaning of Life
On the biological level, the meaning of life is to reproduce, to reproduce we must eat. That is all fine and well, but as intelligent people, we should not let sex be our guiding light. However, on the eating side, we have plenty of recipes to help you meet that need. The wonderful thing about life is, we get to pick a larger meaning. And to that end, we have a lard library of DIY tutorials and a review section for you.
How we interact with others and how they interact with us will be a big part of how happy you are. Humans are a social creature and need love and empathy to understand and interact with others.
Satisfaction with Life
Satisfaction with your life can many times hinge on how you view the world you live in. The path you choose will influence the satisfaction you receive from life. The better you understand the environment, the political system you live in, and the social customs and norms of your society, the better you can navigate the obstacles you will encounter on the road of life.
Our Philosophy of a Happy Life
If you strip away the labels and isms and meta tags, what are you left with? Are you strong and free enough as an individual to survive the loss of all those crutches and maintain reason and meaning? Can you use the power of thought and choice to walk the road of life?
The Greeks said know yourself. Be confident in yourself and your own efforts will make a life of happiness. So I say create music that fires the mind and inspires the soul; find greater wisdom through the reflection of work, love, art, ideas, family, and friendship; and to realize a greater philosophy for living in this new century.
