Full Transcript: 2001-02-15 – Happiness

February 15, 2001
Troy Tolley, Channel

[Michael_Entity] We are here. One Moment.

We have been asked to continue with the topic of Happiness [as started on the TrueView List]. We believe a way for this topic to complete itself with your group is through responding to any questions you may have around the subject.

We will take, then, Barb’s question first.

[Barb] In light of my recent “life change” and in order to reestablish happiness in my life, I’d like to ask what my “trues” are so I can focus my time on what is most productive to me at this point.

Michael On Happiness and Unhappiness

[excerpt from TT: 2001-02-15]

[nemo999] How does one’s unhappiness affect others or their reality; can one person make another unhappy involuntarily?

[Michael_Entity] The degree of Happiness you have in relation to another is entirely dependent on the INDIVIDUAL interpreting the energy exchange. When two or more fragments are interacting, shallowly or intimately, Happiness or Unhappiness is a direct result of expectations fulfilled or not fulfilled. It has been a distorted interpretation by some that this then means you should not have expectations. This is just not possible in most cases. It is biological to have expectations.

Are pleasure, pain, sadness, happiness, etc, states of mind or are they illusion?

[Excerpt from TT: 2000-03-02]

[See Conscious Connection to Essence, Parts 1-3, in their entirety]

[nemo999] What are the most common states of mind? Pleasure, pain, depression, sadness, happiness, attention, boredom … are these states of mind or are they illusion?

[Michael_Entity] This set of descriptions are only conveniences to describe whatever a person interprets as their reality in the moment. They are highly subjective and can refer to either illusions or what you have called ‘states of mind.’ They are all ‘real’ to a person experiencing.
