Happiness starts when we have the freedom to pursue what’s inside ourselves instead of the myriad joys and pursuits and successes that are outside ourselves.
Money doesn’t bring happiness. But it allows us to spend more of our waking hours pursuing happiness once we have it. It’s only a step towards happiness.
Being aware that you need to question everything is commandment number one,
5.    THE OBSTACLES OF HAPPINESS ARE SICKNESS, INERTIA, DOUBTS, LAZINESS, CARELESSNESS, VACILLATING, LACK OF PROGRESS, DELUSIONS, AND FALLING BACKWARDS.
