"I’ve come to think that
consists of putting yourself in situations
in which you lose self-consciousness
and become fused with other people,
experiences, or tasks.
It happens sometimes when you are lost in a hard challenge,
or when an artist or a craftsman becomes one with the brush or the tool.
It happens sometimes while you’re playing sports, or listening to music or lost in a story,
or to some people when they feel enveloped by God’s love.
And it happens most when we connect with other people.
I’ve come to think that happiness isn’t really produced by conscious accomplishments.
Happiness is a measure of how thickly the unconscious parts of our minds are intertwined
with other people and with activities"
David Brooks (Social Animal)
