Am I truly happy right now?
.
.
The first question is a way to simply recognize how we’re feeling in the present moment.
.
.
Quite often, we’re not even aware that we’re unhappy: for example, our unhappiness may be subtle, as when we’re mildly impatient or irritated;
.
.
or sometimes, it can be entirely hidden, as when we’re feeling comfortable and complacent.
.
.
But being comfortable and content is not the same as genuine happiness, and it is very easy to let our life slip by unaware of what we’re missing.
.
.
Asking this simple question is a way of recognizing our current state, and it is the necessary wake-up to what comes next.
