I finally discovered the path to happiness!

It’s all rather simple and only took me 2 decades:

  1. Start by looking for happiness outside of yourself – change circumstances (location, job, etc) and people around you.
  2. Realise happiness is within, work on self-discovery, inner work, shadow work, inner child/ trauma healing work, etc.
  3. Discover that happiness can only be achieved if you leave your mind behind. Meditation, breathwork, psychedelics, etc.
  4. Start getting glimmers of happiness but it’s not what you expected. In fact, peace, joy, freedom > your idea of happiness.
  5. Final realisation – true happiness (aka bliss and freedom) are only possible when there is no I left to be happy.


I am off to go laugh at the moon. Here is the book that led to this latest realisation:
