|HAPPINESS IS BEING HAPPY
There is no great secret to changing behavior or habits. It is largely a matter of
determination. It requires that you ignore the 'pull' of the model when you strive for
changes within yourself. The model is, after all, a collection of 'habits', some of
which must be unlearned for permanent change to occur. There are two ways to do
this: direct, through will power and awareness alone -- observing and acting out in
an unattached or indifferent manner; and indirect -- through conditioning such as
affirmation (explained later), self-hypnosis, and magick. Meditation may help too,
by relaxing tension and conflict.
Emotions follow physical expression: smile and act happy and you will tend to feel
and be happy. The same is also true for other emotions. Also, emotions can be
purposely used (or programed) to replace other emotions. Using this technique, a
magician is somewhat like an actor in that he learns how to turn his emotions on
and off at will. Note that this is not 'faking it'; the magician is probably more in
touch with his true feelings than most people. And for these reasons we say that
happiness is being happy.
