I know for sure that happiness is a matter of common sense.
You know, Albert Einstein once said that:
"Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen."
Indeed, we all have prejudices and to say that we don't is equivalent to saying that we have no common sense.
In fact, common sense is just how we have come to make sense of our lives so that we are now living it as we are. One could say that common sense is our justification to be as we are, to do as we do, and to have as we have. Therefore, it is a combination of the many different beliefs that we have acquired throughout our lifetimes.
So, it is no mystery why our lives are as they are. It is no mystery if we are unhappy. This is because our lives are merely a manifestation of what we say "makes sense" and "doesn't make sense" to us. And, this is what common sense is all about.
So, to reach beyond ourselves so as to become bigger and better versions of ourselves, it is imperative that we learn to "make sense" of life in the ways that will allow the results that we wish for to come to fruition.
In other words, if you want more happiness in your life, this is simply a matter of learning to make sense of happiness so that you are no longer rejecting it is your primary state of being. If you are unhappy in any way, then this is only because it makes more sense to you not to be happy than to be happy.
