    Greetings to anyone curious enough to click on this little thread of mine ...

    I bet some of you may be unfamiliar with Matthieu Ricard, who has been called the world's happiest man - try google if you are curious to know more about why he has acquired that title - even though he himself scoffs at it good-naturedly and says plenty of people are at least as happy as he is!

    Here's one article -

    A 69-year-old monk who scientists call the 'world's happiest man' says the secret to being happy takes just 15 minutes per day

    You can also read a few quotes - I recommend his books too - much prefer to read a hard-copy than off a computer screen ...

    Nice quote.
    I find that allowing, even a small amount of time, for meditation each day can makes a big difference to one's state of being.
    It takes little effort to just sit down for a while.

    Cheers.

    I can change, but do not see any necessity of doing so. I am already happy.
