Happiness gives us direction.
What makes us feel better takes us in the right direction. When we go the right way, happiness boosts our energy. We progress faster, and connect with other positive energy.
Unhappiness slows progress. But even this helps us. It would do no good to go fast in the wrong direction.
Unhappiness comes from one source: resistance. We can always recognize resistance because it feels bad. Any painful feeling, including boredom, shows an area of resistance. It shows us where we can improve.
To improve faster, find ways to feel better. What feels better takes us toward our highest good. This aligns us with the highest good of everything. Positive alignment feels incredible, and benefits all.
