To be a happy man, woman, or child it is important to follow the natural law using right reason and common sense. Life is too difficult being sad and unhappy. Happiness is a state of being to where we feel content with whatever we have and if we want more we can work for it. I think it is important to be satisfied with what we have and not obsess over material things.
In order to get to feeling happy with ourselves, it is essential to understand the natural law and the perfect guidance that it provides. The problem most of us have had is the fact that we weren’t taught to use the natural law. Instead, we all were completely brainwashed to obey authorities that have no authority. When any organization violates the natural law then it loses credibility and demonstrates that it has no authority. They usually don’t abide in their own laws and they violate the natural law by lying to the people. But the biggest problem that I have observed is that governments have laws that are are based on an immoral foundation. This cannot produce a good result so there's no point in discussing any problems without first having a moral foundation to make good things happen using right reason and common sense.
Every time we use any kind of deception we will bring wrath upon ourselves. Thing will not go well and it will bring unhappiness.
If we want to live in peace and happiness, then we need to abide in the natural law. It is simple and easy to use and everyone has the ability to use it. We have to take the time to just do it; making sure that we never hurt or injure anyone.
Governments and religions are proven failures so why listen to them anymore? I believe it is best to separate from them and live a better life.
