Happiness and Interest

Honesty and Integrity lead to Happiness
I just heard a lecture by L. Ron Hubbard in which he is talking about happiness and interest:

The clue to happiness is being interested in life. And their happiness is as great as they create it. ... They'll get the amount of happiness that they can generate. But this happiness is not itself an emotion. It is a word which states a condition and the anatomy of that condition is interest.

This is a very practical piece of data. If you are feeling unhappy with your life then you need to create more interest in your life. Find a job you are more interested in. Take up a hobby that you are interested in. And don't forget that it is you who creates the interest, it doesn't just spring into being, it requires you to create it.
There are many tools provided in Scientology to help you create and maintain interest in life. The basic ones can be found here: Tools to Achieve Happiness
