Happiness and Well-being are worthy goals to pursue. We wish for self and others Happiness as this is one of our deepest desires. Positive Psychology which also refers itself as a science of Happiness, describes Happiness as lasting state when-
(A) there is a state of deep engagement, 'Flow'- when time stops, and individuality ceases to exist. We experience 'Flow' when challenges+learning and our skills are placed in an optimal proportion
(B) we live a Meaningful life, serving Greater Purpose than oneself.
Wishing you a 2014 of High Engagement and Larger Purpose! :-)
