Concepts create idols; only wonder grasps anything. - St Gregory of Nyssa

Happy people do these things?
I need to think about this, in light of Orthodoxy and orthopraxy.

  1. They build a strong social fabric.
  2. They engage in activities that fit their strengths, values, and lifestyle.
  3. They practice gratitude.
  4. They have an optimistic thinking style.
  5. They know it's good to do good.
  6. They know that material wealth is only a very small part of the equation.
  7. They develop healthy coping strategies.
  8. They focus on health.
  9. They cultivate spiritual emotions. (I do not agree with the wording of this seems to imply religion is made up.)
  10. They have direction.
