Is Happiness a Choice? The Option Method Philosophy

[ by Bruce M. Di Marsico ] [ $8.95 ]
Audio CD (2-disk set); approx. 90 minutes.
What role does choice play in our happiness or unhappiness? Do we indeed "choose" to be unhappy? This was the most common question asked by the Option students who gathered together at Bruce Di Marsico's home for this lecture recorded live in November of 1995. Bruce clarifies what he means by "choice". He explains to his students how our beliefs affect our happiness and unhappiness. Bruce explores the connection between our feelings and our beliefs and just what kind of judgments cause us to feel bad. He describes how his Option Method takes your unhappiness from "that vague cloud of confusion and that which just happens to you" and breaks it down to "the real dynamics that cause your emotions....your beliefs and your judgments." In this lecture, his last before his death on December 4, 1995, Bruce shares with friends and students his kind understanding of human nature and happiness. Discover the root cause of your unhappiness through Bruce's profound insights.

People become unhappy by choice, belief, or judgment. They make a choice of what they’re going to believe. If they choose to believe it is good, they will feel good. If they choose to believe it is bad, they feel bad. Why am I using the word “choice”? It’s the only thing in life that you can absolutely be sure is not happening to you.
