How important is happiness?

It's hard to strike the balance between presenting a local "Action for Happiness" group as carnival fun and presenting ourselves as an organisation working to ameliorate:
  • isolation
  • depression
  • meaninglessness
  • suicide

 J just emailed me saying:

"This [second] video made me realise what a balancing act it is:
to address/include in your invitations those who both do and those who don't want to go deeper.  
People seeing only this video might conclude you're operating in the same area-ish as the Samaritans ..   you might find desperate people approaching you in some numbers ... that's quite a responsibility.       And people who 'just' want a little more expansiveness and laughter in their lives might feel this is too heavy for them. How to cover the range ? Be all things to all people ??
I felt reasured, imagining myself feeling low in your locale,  I could knock on your door and not  be   given just balloons and jokes and a laughter session .... and wondering how you see your rolewith people who are feeling very low/disturbed? "

Shifting in the name of harmony, yet aware that my teacher teaches me to "beware of premature synthesis"

Shifting in the name of harmony, yet aware that my teacher teaches me to "beware of premature synthesis"

Dear Friends,

In case you're not yet following/glued to

Shifting from "Walking Buddhas of SE England" to "Love Statues of #StLeonards"; a more harmonious conversation opener:

Thanks Zelly, Caz, Gaye, Sue & Patsy in particular for things said & done that helped this shift.
Reactions please (both initial reactions & more considered)

Kind regards/ Lots of love (whichever you prefer)
