“Biologically speaking, feeling good plays an important role as part of our survival machine. Our brains use it to drive survival behaviors that do not relate to immediate threats.

To achieve that, our brains flood our bodies with serotonin, oxytocin, and other feel-good chemicals during acts they want to encourage us to do more often.”

Obviously, there’s a lot of crying and fussing associated with the start-up phase of little humans, but the fact is, as long as their most basic needs are met — no immediate hunger, no immediate fear, no scary isolation, no physical pain or enduring sleeplessness — they live in the moment, perfectly happy.”

“In the 1930s, the Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky observed that inner speech is accompanied by tiny muscular movements in the larynx. Based on this, he argued that inner speech developed through the internalization of out-loud speech.

In the 1990s, neuroscientists confirmed his view; they used neuroimaging to demonstrate that areas of the brain such as the left inferior frontal gyrus, which are active when we speak out loud, are also active during inner speech.

That voice inside your head truly is your brain talking, even though you’re the only one who can hear it.”

“Now go ahead and tell me how the real you looks. Can you? Like the depth of the ocean, the real you is something you’ve never seen. Like radio waves, you don’t have the instrument to perceive it.

More importantly, because of its nonphysical nature, it is not to be seen. Being seen is a characteristic only of the physical world.”

Solve for Happy

“Now please consider the following: How different is your life on this earth from a video game?

If your physical form — the avatar you use to navigate the physical world — is not the real you, then what difference does it make if you face a few challenges on the way?”

“Once the thought goes, the suffering disappears!

When a rude person offends you, he can’t really make you unhappy, unless you turn the event into a thought, then allow it to linger in your brain, and then allow it to distress you.

Solve For Happy
