A blog about my religion, Scientology, and my viewpoints on life, the universe and everything.
Finally, a "real" solution! What took them so long?!?
After watching the video I got the "There is hope for me" joke. Good one. One thing they didn't mention is that people often grow out of happiness. Assuming that's not a recent picture of you on your blog (if it is, you're incredibly smart for your age), you may have already experienced the draining power of growing up. I used to be happy, when I was younger, but now...Seriously (or not so seriously), the only two times I felt really, really good as an adult was (1) when I fell in love, and (2) when I used Self-Analysis intensively (a couple hours a day). But then when I was in a local grocery store, I felt self-conscious about the huge grin on my face. No one else was that happy, so I took it down a few notches. I gotta try that book again, and maybe not care about agreeing with my environment...
There seems to be a strata of society that can't take intense emotions. Strong grief, loud anger, joyous exhilaration are all unacceptable to that group.I recall an actor being overjoyed because he had found the love of his life. He jumped on a couch and proclaimed his love. Next thing you know he was being attacked in the media.It's a sad commentary on the world that it can't allow someone to be extremely happy.
I guess that's all I need than... As I am often asked why am I smiling...
Medication for being "annoyingly happy?" GTFOH.That reminds me of a Chris Rock routine he did where he joked about presciption drugs. He said you'll see this commercials, where they just start naming symptoms, until they find SOMETHING that you've got."Are you sad? Are you scared? Are you lonely? Are you cold? Are hot? Do your teeth hurt? You need this pill!"He said he once saw a commercial that said "Do you go to bed @ night, & get up in the morning?" And he thought: Oh s**t! That's me! I got that! I better get that pill!
