Don Oakley is the author of "It's Time to Wake Up Now: The Top Ten Myths that Can Hijack Spiritual Awakening," a five star rated book on Amazon, Founding Director of Well Being Foundation and Director of Adyashanti's Open Gate Sangha non-profit organization. Samples of Don's other teachings may be found on his YouTube Channel.

Happiness is our natural state. It takes considerable effort to make ourselves unhappy. Perhaps, you sometimes find yourself in a state of unhappiness without knowing exactly why or how you got there - a haphazard process at best. This discourse will shed light on the common ways we make ourselves unhappy. Awareness of how we do this will lessen the power of these unskillful patterns.
