Happy: Matthew Ricard; happiest man in the world

“How does being present to life-as-it-is relate to the experience of genuine happiness, especially if what is happening isn’t to our liking?
.
.
.
One clear answer to that question is this: being present allows us to shift from the narrow, self-centered world of I-as-a-Me to an open and increasingly awake sense of who we truly are.
.
.

As we bring attention to whatever arises in the present moment—our pretenses, our protections, our deeply held beliefs, our fears—we slowly begin to see through the seeming solidity of these self-imposed boundaries, boundaries that prevent us from seeing, and living from, what is real in each moment.”
