Letters: Another way of living

Letter writer recommends two books to read to be happier

I am happy to introduce the revolution coming your way if you allow it to enter your life. A huge problem for so many is a feeling of incompetency and inadequacy, brought on by the the dreadful, ridiculous pressures of the kind of society we live in.

If you wish you could change the world into a equitable and balanced place, watch the documentary Happy.   According to research,  the happiness formula is 50 per cent genetic, 10 per cent situational and 40 pere cent  intentional.

I have often felt like grabbing a gun and mercilessly mowing down lots of the nasty selfish types out there but, oh what a delight to finally be able to whole heartedly join a perfect revolution: My revolutionary intention is to be happy and help others. Thank you  John Lennon.

Yes indeed, the news is pretty much all awful but get focused and be happy rather than hurt and upset by all the crappy news  out there. Many many HAPPY people are way more likely to deal with these awful problems successfully.

P.S.  Happy people never abandon their elders, nor anyone else in need.

And read The Bet.
