Question: My main goal in life is to be as happy as possible. What would be the one thing I could do over and over again everyday to achieve this goal?

Answer: Start every morning being as quiet as you can while being as awake as possible to yourself as you are and to that silent longing that you have to realize what it is possible for you to be. Take this intention with you into every moment of your day. Meet life from this wish, and watch how your wish for Real Life begins to be granted.
