“Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.” 

Thomas Merton

True happiness lies in life’s balance, not in its extremes.

Thomas Merton, a Trappist monk and writer, offers a profound insight into the nature of happiness. He suggests that happiness is achieved not through the pursuit of extreme highs, but through the cultivation of balance, order, rhythm, and harmony in our lives. This means finding equilibrium in various aspects – work, leisure, relationships, and personal growth. Merton’s perspective encourages us to seek a balanced lifestyle, where moderation and mindfulness lead to a deep and enduring sense of well-being.
