MrMellow - start taking cod liver oil. I kid you not. It will at the very least take the volume waaaay down, and very likely get rid of it all together. Seriously.

Hell, I'm game. How much do you take?

OP, there is much truth in your poster.

Unk, both my mum and father in law take 2 capsules in the morning and another 2 at night. They both swear by it. My father in law was a customs man at Manchester Airport back in the day when planes were both very noisy and no one wore defenders, whilst he's now pretty deaf, he does say there's been no tintinnus since he started taking CLO.

Hmmm. I'm no stranger to psychic entropy, so I use a combination of strategies to keep me from getting stuck in my head in the wrong way. Taken individually, they sound trite and treacly. Mindfullness and learning how to calm the beast were key developments. I taught myself how to meditate and now I am able to turn mundane activities into meditations. I maintain my important relationships to get me off of Planet Me. I try to see the humour in everything. I'm grateful. I keep physically active - sometimes at the gym guys'll ask "wadda ya workin today?" and I always answer "my mood." I purposefully keep learning. I consciously seek "flow states". Riding motorcycles is one of my favourite flow states. All of the above is under construction...

Well then, cod liver oil and flow states, they sound related in a way.

Thanks, Suze. And Steve, I like that - getting off of Planet Me.

I was in Alberta in 2010 and this shot seemed magical to me.....



I don't think there is a ''magic wand'' for happiness or serenity. I have battled with it over the last 7 or 8 years as I have suffered with redundancy and crossing into the 50 year age period!!!!!

My wife and I keep honest with each other and having someone there to share over 27 years is a good thing IMHO.

I do have a religious faith, but don't want to preach on this site! But that faith keeps me grounded and I believe there is a plan and a purpose for each person's life. No one is an ''accident'' - there is a plan for us all.

Cod liver oil? Don't use it myself but hey sounds good!

[QUOTE=Casper;2433657]What is happiness? Do you pursue it or is it a by product of life?"

Pretty sure whoever said the following is right: "A life devoted to the direct pursuit of happiness is the surest recipe for an unhappy life."

Those of you who like to read to learn about such topics, I found these books to be among the most accessible and useful:
"Stumbling On Happiness" by Daniel Gilbert
"Finding Flow" by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
"The Happiness Hypothesis" by Jonathon Haidt
Cheers.

Happiness is it possible?

Only for short periods and then it is snatched away in the blink of an eye.
