The article started off by saying that no person chooses to be unhappy. If this is

true, then we all must try to be happy. We all must search for some innate happiness to

fulfill our lives and hearts. However, that’s not the point the spitzer brings up. Spitzer is

trying to make people realize that there are different levels to happiness, and that each

one greatly differs from the last even if they’re all forms of happiness. It says there’s

material happiness, or happiness in a thing or possession that you own. Another

happiness it tells you about is feeling superior, or better than someone else. I think that is

in their life instead of trying to fix it. He tells perople to get off of their butts and actually

go out and find their joy, not just sit down and mope, longing for some type of joy. He

seems to really believe that sex can be a good thing, under the right circumstances, but

should never be substitued for your heavenly grace. That, above everything else, seems to

be his main focus in the article

Coming from the viewpoint of a “new age hippie”, or so I am called by

many, I found these articles on happiness quite interesting. I find that I...
