The Happiness Project: Imitate a Spiritual Master

This week's Happiness Project resolution is to imitate a spiritual master.

Who is my spiritual master?

I have No. Idea.

I am not a religious person, and I'm not one of the "not religious but spiritual" types either.

Probably if I had to pick one person whose philosophy I'd most like to follow, it would be Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Much of it involves learning to fly by throwing oneself to the ground and missing, but a more general view would be that much of life is absurd and therefore it should be mocked.

Today's Happiness Project post about false choices also very much resonated with me -- I constantly frame situations with false choices. The post gave me a lot of food for thought about how to stop doing that.
