Even though we view Love and Happiness as essential to a good life, they aren’t really taught. Or, if they are taught, it’s rare that it goes beyond theory and platitudes and into real, practical, experiential living.

Certain paths and ways of experiencing love and happiness are laid out for us in our movies, culture, entertainment, religion, etc. Some ways were laid out by our family, friends, teachers and mentors.
