Happiness Is The Goal - But
I have found, culminating in the last 60 years of my life, that happiness is the end "goal" (so to speak). I can't believe I found a website which resonates with my true feelings about goals and "purpose".
But here is my dilemma. I know happiness is the goal. But, whenever I engage in a "process" of making or doing something and it starts to get real "technical" in instructions, I get frustrated and want to beat myself up for not being able to comprehend. I often blame myself that I am not progressing as fast as others.
I know this is self defeating.
As far as CMR, I now know that I've been practicing such a technique, under another name, (but as you stated names are not important) which emphasizes the ability to stay aware of your thought and stay aware of your presence. You find that the thoughts diminish over time and you become detached from them. The objective (without effort) is that you will be more objective in your daily life activities. And this has happened for me EXCEPT when it comes to the area of "work", especially for work which I do at home.
As part of a work project I have at home, I have to follow instructions presented by a third party. I need to read, comprehend and then do the instructions as stated. But at times I read and the instructions don't make sense as written and yet I see that other people following the same instructions are seeming to do fine. I then start wondering if it is my age or is something wrong?
Can you relate? Can someone offer me some feedback on this issue?
Thank you for this website and I wish you much success with your venture. I like your website because I can feel it was done with the spirit of "no pressure" and I like that. It is a refreshing change.
This site is about happiness and how to be happy
