The missing first chapter of Positive Psychology

The pioneers of Positive Psychology are trying to nail down a formula for finding happiness, and they deserve tremendous praise for doing it. Happiness is probably the most important reward of our life, and it may have much deeper significance than we realize at present. But I won’t be surprised if the interest in Positive Psychology gradually fades over time, as people may fail to develop a conviction in it, unless it can show a logical and scientific relationship between the activities it is preaching and happiness.

Currently, their advices and suggestions may not be much different from those of a good religion - Positive psychology is basically telling us to do good things to find happiness. Religion has been doing the same thing for a very long time. It has a large follower base, everywhere in the world, but a large part of the educated community, the front liners of our civilization, still lacks conviction in it, most probably because Religion often doesn’t use scientific logic as its running mate.

The difference between Positive Psychology and Religion is probably that Positive Psychology bases its recommendations on real life case studies, done in a very disciplined and methodical way. But like Religion, it may not be showing a logical and scientific cause-and-effect relation between activities and the resulting happiness or misery.

I think, my theory of happiness (described in my previous post) can provide the missing scientific logic to Positive Psychology, and strengthen its foundation, and would help people to develop conviction in it. I will briefly describe it here again:

there is a direct scientific link between happiness and activities which create positive changes in our world (and promote evolution). Our activities which create positive changes, increase our chances of finding happiness. On the other hand, activities which generate negative changes increase our chances of finding misery.

Please see my previous post for full explanation. Love you all. OM!
