Jordan Peterson - Happiness
"In a crisis, the inevitable suffering that life entails can rapidly make a mockery of the idea that happiness is the proper pursuit of the individual."
Jordan Peterson in 12 Rules For Life.
Happiness Is Not An Accident
According to Jordan Peterson, life heads relentlessly towards chaos and destruction, while midnight demons and dragons torture you for ever and happiness is a rare, unlikely goal. Actually, there are no demons and dragons. They exist only if you engage in the game played by a pattern recognition jelly in your skull, with its virtually infinite memory.
That memory recollects strategies from millions of years of battles and recalls a lifetime of experiences. The jelly triggers demons implementing remembered solutions when you are threatened with pain, obstruction of your goals, competition, personal loss, or bullying; or when you lack meaningful employment. Fear, anger, envy, guilt, disappointment, low self esteem, sadness and a search for meaning are the prehistoric demons that keep you in hell.
A put down by a shop assistant could trigger a twinge of pain in your chest, because of the catcalls of a childhood bully decades earlier. These "animal responses" have a primitive herd logic and present distinct physical symptoms, when they take control. But, the same jelly contains "YOU," a real entity, different from its many animal subdivisions. Your animal responses can be stilled by the mere recognition of their physical symptoms. Still the demons and you become free. Simple physical sensations replace the terror. Then life becomes just an experience. And all you need to be happy is some simple meaningful work. Like polishing silver.
Happiness steps in when you have killed the dragons with a simple mental technique.
