The goal of life is to be happy.
What is difficult is making choices that support happiness.
It is hard to act on circumstances that are conducive to happiness.
It is challenging to deal with our thoughts and emotions in a way that leads to happiness.
It is really rare to surround yourself with people that promote your happiness.
It is even more rare to come across teachers who teach you methods that produce happiness.
So much of what we do for the sake of happiness leads us down the rabbit hole of suffering and dissatisfaction.
The goal of life is to be happy, but the purpose of life is to act on the causes of happiness.
