The DIVINE LAWS
The LAW of Happiness
A Partial Teaching on The Continuum of Life
It may be noted that Life is a linear function where the left hand side indicates degrees of Unhappiness where (-1) represents a totally unhappy individual.
The right hand side indicates degrees of Happiness where (+1) represents a totally happy individual.
The Null position is represented in the form of a convex landing where individuals sit with one leg on one side and the other leg on the opposite side, thus indicating a neutral position capable of being swayed by small externalities like joy or pain.
Happiness is a function of an individual’s reality which will be many layered and thus of unique composition in every case. It is also a function of expectations of that individual at that point of time in his or her existence
H = [f(R,E)]
In the case of an individual, when the outcome of above factors is positive, that person may be said to be a happy person. When the outcome is negative, that person may be said to be an unhappy person. When the result is neutral, the person is at null point.
Persons at null point sway with every movement of the external breeze between joy and sorrow.
Such persons oscillate between joy and despair from moment to moment, whereas happiness is a long term and self-controlled matter.
Comment: Most people mistake pride in physical and material possessions as joy and despair at the lack of such.
Human beings are gregarious; however society has evolved in such a direction where a person may find himself or herself alone in a group.
This is an internal isolation which is again a function of factors noted earlier and indicative of a negative result of above factors.
When in a group which is composed of people with supposedly similar interests, traits, attitudes and behaviours, one should be able to blend in, to integrate, to share with that group having joined that group due to personal choice or by invitation.
However, in many cases, several individuals within the group may experience feelings of internal isolation in midst of a noisy group interaction, meeting or celebration.
At that moment, that particular person is clearly showing/exhibiting a net negative result of the two factors discussed earlier and thus, be an unhappy person.
When sufficiently prolonged, such a person may become a permanently unhappy person.
Comment: A person may feel that he or she had a happy childhood whereas in fact, it would have been a passage of years without independent decision-making and be of little importance in the larger scheme of life because the individual would be facing consequences without having made his or her decisions as granted by The Right.
