On Quiet

In this talk, Bruce Di Marsico discusses alternatives to the search for happiness. The search for happiness is a form of denial, or non-consent, that happiness is available now.

Quiet is being done with things, for now. You can be quiet in the midst of a riot. In particular, you can be quiet in your search for happiness, even if you may believe you have not found it. Paradoxically, this will let you be more aware of your prior happiness.

Sometimes, in our lives, there is just no more time to wait to be happier. Bruce Di Marsico illustrates this with the story of the Russian saints, Boris and Gleb.
