We have an uncanny way of complicating even the simplest of things. Go into any bookstore and you will find an overwhelming selection of spiritual, psychological and/or philosophical books that each offer their own unique “prescription” on how to achieve happiness in this life. I’ve read quite of few of them myself. Though I have found many that gave good advice, I think the best I ever received was from a very smart, (and very pretty), lady. She said that there was only three things needed to achieve happiness in this life:
Something to do
Something to believe in
Someone to love
Years later, and several more read books underneath my belt, I realize it’s probably the best piece of advice I’ve ever been given. Oftentimes the best suggestions are the simplest. Ever hear of Occam’s Razor?
