I can talk sikit sikit about the subject because I sit through all 24 lectures by that Harvard Hal. Reading the postings here...every body thinks he is an expert on happiness and nothing else to learn...but they are all wrong.
Andrew Matthews books are about accepting who you are not false beliefs or negativity that wants to define you. And the art of going through life with sense of humour, always look at positive side of things. Reading his books make you smile again.
The good thing about Andrew Matthews books are the cartoons. You can copy them and put on your walls, most of them are hilarious. And i had many angry customers and friends walking out with a big smile on their face once they see Andrew Matthews works splashed on my office walls.

Happiness is a very tricky issue. Choice always cause unhappiness But we built a society giving people more and more choice, making people more and more unhappy. Happiest are the Bhutans.....they got no choice, no wonder UN calls them the world's happiest country.
Happiness is not a detachment from body or be a humanless person: (1) You have to do "what is important to people" inorder to gain happiness "what is important" from people. (2) You have to learn first before you do anything for people because you want to do something important for them under the environment and under the circumstances of your ability. (3) Apply what you learn and not apply what you think, do what other people consider important, necessary, or requirement for synergy and fairness. Then happiness will come eventually.
aiyo...our ultimate aim is to prevent death...... but..just that we have given up..and hope there is a heaven (with 7 seven virgins waiting for you...who had obviously done a lot of sin...wah..that's why girls are more naughty than men...1:7 ratio!)
anyway...im not discouraging from u guys to hope for heaven, but may be just do your small part in in making this world closer to heaven if possible..like recommending good shares.
Happiness is an internal emotion of having great joy and satisfaction in oneself and this can be contributed by our loved ones or by our ownselves.It is directly contrary to stress which can be generated if we are angry or unhappy.To avoid unhappiness we must minimise communication with people who are selfish,unreasonable,quarrelsome,irritable,exploiting,greedy and abusive. Contrarily we can get happiness from people of great virtues such as kindness,generousity,truthfulness,humility,loyalty and sincerity.
Coldrisks,the scriptures mention that if you mix with the wise ones you will be wiser and if you mix with the stupid ones you will become more stupid too. So if you read bad articles you will become bad and if you read good virtues you will inculcate good virtues unless you love badness. You are a free moral agent you can choose what you want but I will choose to listen to God because he is much smarter than a human who is just a speck of dust even he is very wealthy but is nothing when compares to the Almighty God.
Apollo,I am very sorry to hear that but still you have to make the best of what you have now in order for your innocent loved ones to be happy too.Try to go back to work to earn some money so that you could solve your daily needs and save some if you can,it is really too late to cry over spilt milk. I lost a substantial sum of money too but I won't allow it to affect my outlook in life and affect my happiness.There are many people who have lost everything during the superstorm, Haiyat but after that they make the best out of it because during the 'last days' there will be a lot of calamities which we cannot avoid.
