A few weeks ago, a Facebook friend I’d never spoken to before sent me a private message saying she found the answer to every question that’s ever been asked, and that somehow she knew I wouldn’t think she was crazy.
While there are countless studies about what makes people sad, depressed, addicted and mentally ill, there aren’t many studies on what makes people happy.
This, Maor says, is because people are so focused on running away from what makes them unhappy, they never stop to ask themselves what will make them happy.
“There should be somewhere on earth a place which no nation could claim as its own, where all human beings of goodwill, who have a sincere aspiration, could live freely, as citizens of the world, and obey one single authority – that of the supreme Truth.“ ~ Mirra Alfassa, 1954
Today, there is such a place, where people of all colors and creeds live harmoniously without politics, religion or money. It’s called Auroville:

“Humans Are Evolving Toward Polyamory, But We Can’t Grow Out of Monogamy Until We Learn Self Love,” Guru Says
My new spiritual guru Teal Swan says the era of marriage is coming to an end and polyamory is the way of the future, but we can’t just jump into the lifestyle without preparing ourselves emotionally and spiritually.
“As a species, when we evolve to a higher vibratory rate, the perception of separation will dissolve, we will not have the desire to pair bond and marriage will cease to be a function of our society,” Swan says in a YouTube video about marriage.
“What’s your goal with this new website?” an old friend asked yesterday. “I have no idea,” I laughed nervously.
An ambitious and determined young man (whom I used to work with at a conservative “think tank”), he was not impressed. He is the kind of guy who is serious about “success,” about setting goals and achieving them, about moving the benchmark to new heights, about planning for a happy future.
“What do you mean ‘you have no idea!?'” he asked, laughing, but almost offended by my idiocy.
