I am close to half way through the book and I am thoroughly enjoying it. So much insight and wisdom on these pages.
He talks about how we have a 'comfort zone' for happiness, and when we go above that zone we will unconsciously create conflict or suffering to bring us back down to where we are most used to being. Makes a lot of sense, and yet so many of us don't even know that we are doing this. The thought of someone saying, "I don't want to be happier" is crazy, yet we have all done this at one point or another.
When we become aware of unconscious patterns we then have the power to change these habits into new ones that serve us in a better way.
