The IDPeeps Contemplate Happiness
The IDPeeps contemplate ... will the Cookies n Cream make me happy?
Maybe in the moment. But then the Cookies n Cream will be gone.
Perhaps leafy green vegetables, with their folates and fiber, will bring long-term happiness.
That too proves to be unsatisfactory.
Caught in the trap of doubt, self-confidence ebbing, IDPeep falls back on habit and into a glass of fine Kentucky bourbon, on the rocks.
Hung over and still unhappy, IDPeep realizes that habitual patterns don't bring happiness. IDPeep turns to meditation.
and comes to realize
that in between the thought and the action
there is a space
and in that space
is the happiness that comes from knowing one's true nature as primordially, inherently good.
