Integrity: The Key to Happiness

There's no secret about how to be happy. Each of us knows -- from past experience, and in every moment of our lives -- what brings us up and what brings us down. Fulfillment is a simple matter of doing what works for us, and avoiding what doesn't.

Of course, we often deny what we know, when we are attached to doing something we know will bring us down, or when we are resistant to doing what we know would bring us up. When we are dishonest about what we know, happiness can seem impossible to achieve. But fulfillment is never far from reach. At any moment in which we have the integrity to admit what we know -- and live accordingly -- happiness and even enlightenment are near at hand. see article
