Problems and difficult situations arise easily and sometimes all too often. Although no one wishes for the slightest inconvenience, if we think carefully, we shall discover that what makes a particular situation unbearable is our reactionary mind. We should not be surprised when things go wrong, because this is the very nature of human experience throughout history. Instead, we should learn how to tame our reactionary mind and transform it into a state of calmness, clarity, and wisdom. In this way we shall definitely achieve the quality of life that we so deeply desire.

Can the attainment of happiness be guaranteed? Happiness can be guaranteed if one engages the actual instructions and practices that cause happiness. Happiness is a type of mind and each type of mind has its own specific causes. Can happiness be attained immediately? It is possible but the vast majority of people have many bad mental habits that prevent them from attaining swift happiness. Therefore, bad habits must be reduced and eventually eliminated and good habits must be cultivated. How long this takes is up to an individual’s own effort. However, it is not so important as to how long it takes, as to whether or not we are making actual progress to attaining lasting happiness. Learn how to guarantee your own happiness!
