I looked at pictures of Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi… who wrote the book Flow, and was an expert on happiness. Not being happy, mind you, on researching happiness.
He doesn’t look happy, doesn’t feel happy (remember, I am an empath).
I even went and found videos where he speaks Hungarian… maybe I’ll find a moment where he is joyful.
Didn’t find any. Not even one moment.
His insightful quote: “People who learn to control inner experience will be able to determine the quality of their lives, which is as close as any of us can come to being happy.” is what was missing for him, and what is missing for most people most of the time.
