It’s a weird specific type of human arrogance to think that people can offset the great universal balance of positive and negative. It’s like trying to split an atom; we all know what happens when you do that. There are thousands of books out there trying to convince people that the secret to their happiness is nothing more than a bit of positive thinking. This is very much a materialistic reduction of the concept of happiness. Similarly, it teaches people to obsess over happiness— not such wonderful advice. You know what the least likely way to find satisfaction is? Chasing satisfaction.
