Tai Ben-Shahar, who teaches positive psychology at Harvard and has written extensively on happiness, calls it" the end toward which all other ends lead." He writes:"Wealth,fame,admiration and all other goals are subordinate and secondary to happiness; whether our desires are material or social, they are means toward one end: happiness."
My Happiness Equation is: Happiness=Material Consumption+Intellectual Pursuit+Spiritual Satisfaction+Good Health as Numerator over Desire as the Denominator. I have sent such in my past blogs for reader's attention.
