    Hi Beautiful JF Members
    Do you know throughout history, the happiest people often record going through a deep depression caused by a sense of the loss of meaning…?These events should not be repudiated but welcomed since only through them is the “Twice-born” sense of renewal possible.
    The happiest people are actually Twice Born. How is this possible? Well, the Twice Born attitude towards life often leads to a “crisis” expressed by a pathological depression, often accompanied by a strong desire to make sense of things. This positive desire is incompatible with the underlying negative emotional state, producing a contradiction which finds resolution in a transcendence of the negative state into a new, profound sense of the love of life.
    Happiness is created as a result of our being active participants in the game of life. Instead of brooding on the suffering and evils of existence, we are to readjust our attitudes and act as if life does have an ultimate meaning, even though this can never be proved by the rational mind. Believe me that life is worth living, and if you believe will help create the fact.
    Have a nice week end.
