We seem obsessed with happiness as a product. I am, we are.
And perhaps the easiest way to explain this is the popular idea of craving for a happy body. Exercise regimes, guides and ‘diet’ schemes interspersed with celebrity endorsements. Or life changing objects and how, socially, we need this or that to become accepted and loved by others.
If we don’t put the mind first it’s all pointless and empty of substance.
