    MYTH WARRIORS! “Happiness is a choice!”

    in Business

    In the MYTH WARRIORS™ series we are targeting ideas to begin to assess whether they are credible or not. We are warriors fighting to establish clarity between what is accurate and what is simply a myth (or falsehood) in life. In this episode our topic is, “Happiness is a choice!”


    What is happiness? What is choice? Do humans have any choice (or free will) or is everything that happens in our lives predestined? 


    If an individual ascribes their entire life to predestination (or fate for non-theistic perspectives) the framework of determinism precludes the “choice” any emotion (including happiness). If an individual is not able to chose anything in their lives (as it was all determined for them), there is no “choice” for feeling anything (including happiness). This show topic will be a myth from the perspective of those who adhere to predestination.


    For those who are not fully committed to some forms of determinism, the possibility of free will (in some capacity) provides the option of choice of emotion. If emotions are able to be elected by individuals, what is the benefit to choosing misery (assuming it to be the opposite of happiness)? 


    Our culture and shared history abounds with examples of the individual who elects to feel and/ or express happiness (even for fleeting moments) under the most horrific of circumstances (war, famine, occupation, etc.). If is is possible to choose happiness, why bother? There are seemingly credible scientific research sources that assert physical, emotional and psychological benefits of positive moods (i.e., happiness). 


    Let’s engage in this “dinner party” discussion of whether we have any option to support a credible assertion that “Happiness is a choice!”

    WHO ARE WE- THE NATURE OF THE WILL

    in Motivation

    Free will is the ability of agents to make choices unconstrained by certain factors. Factors of historical concern have included metaphysical constraints (such as logical, nomological, or theological determinism), physical constraints (such as chains or imprisonment), social constraints (such as threat of punishment or censure), and mental constraints (such as compulsions or phobias, neurological disorders, or genetic predispositions). The principle of free will has religious, legal, ethical, and scientific implications. For example, in the religious realm, free will implies that individual will and choices can coexist with an omnipotent divinity. In the law, it affects considerations of punishment and rehabilitation. In ethics, it may hold implications for whether individuals can be held morally accountable for their actions.

    What is wisdom?

    in Spirituality

    I will talk with Vito Mucci about his spiritual path and professional work.
    Vito Mucci is the founder and inventor of Manifestational Restructuring. He is a collective synergy of many fields. He loves to use everything from the most intimate aspects of psychology and spirituality, to the connected archetypal realms of mythology and historical study.  This while incorporating with energetic healing aspects of shamanic and alternate-medicinal therapies, and the necessities of logic within scientific exploration.
    Using a multiplicity of teaching and healing styles meant to bypass stored pain and trauma, so as to reset the initial health and beauty of the genetic code, he draws greatly upon the inspiration of his family of origin. He hails from a group of individual healers in differing areas of expertise, and follows the bits of guidance from the masters he has met along the way. While his ideas blend into every area of living a full life of experience, resonance, and rapture within the everyday, his most dear theories are that of using psychological determinism as a guide to understanding the relationship with the mind . . and the healing art of Manifestational Restructuring . . a technique wherein volition and love are instantaneously creative and restorative to mental and physical health when performed in a sacred space.
