Precept 3 of the Way to Happiness

The 3rd precept of the Way to Happiness is:

"3. Don't be *promiscuous.
Sex is the means by which the race projects itself into the future through children and the family. A lot of pleasure and happiness can come from sex: nature intended it that way so the race would go on. But, misused or abused, it carries with it heavy penalties and punishments: nature seems to have intended it that way also."

This breaks down into one additional precept:
"3-1: Be faithful to your sexual partner."

I, personally, feel that this is a very obvious one. You only have to watch one episode of Cheaters to see how it feels to find out your sexual partner is cheating on you. God forbid it ever actually happens to you.
History, newspaper and television carry floods of instances of violence due to human passions aroused by unfaithfulness. "Guilt" is a mild evil when compared to the monsters of jealousy and vengeance.
Not only do human passions get aroused, but there is also the question of health. Having multiple sexual partners lays you and your partners open to sexually transmitted disease such as AIDs and HIV.
The problems of sexual misbehaver is not new. The powerful religion of Buddhism in India vanished from there in the seventh century. According to it's one historians, the cause was sexual promiscuity in it's monasteries.
The urge of the moment can become the sorrow of a lifetime. Don't allow yourself and those around you to fall into the trap of sexual promiscuity.

"Sex is a big step on the way to happiness and joy. There is nothing wrong with it if it is followed with faithfulness and decency."
*Promiscuous: Casual, random sexual relations.

Precept 2 of the Way to Happiness

The next precept in the Way to Happiness booklet is "Be Temperate*"

This precept breaks down into two points of common sense:
2-1: "Do not take harmful drugs."
2-2: "Do not take alcohol to excess."

This is, of course, common sense. One who is on drugs does not always see the real world in front of them. They can be dangerous as they are not really there. If one was working with a person on drugs, or driving on the highway next to them, there is a possibility of that person doing unpredictable and often dangerous things.
When one takes alcohol to excess, they are not alert. Alcohol impairs one's ability to react - even when it seems to the person drinking that they are more alert.
Both drugs and alcohol have cause innumerable pain and hardships on those around the drug or alcohol user, as well as to the user themselves. These scourges have caused countless deaths, the majority of deaths caused when they are used to excess.

"Observing from the points above, one becomes more physically able to enjoy life."

*Temperate: Not going to extremes; not overdoing things; controlling one's cravings.

Precept* 1 of The Way to Happiness

The first precept of The Way to Happiness is:
"1. Take Care of Yourself"
This precept breaks down into 5 separate points, which are:
"1-1 Get care when you are ill.
"1-2 Keep your body clean.
"1-3 Preserve your teeth.
"1-4 Eat properly.
"1-5 Get rest."

All of the above actions are common sense. When you are sick or injured, you should take the appropriate steps to get better or heal. Keeping your body clean will lower your risk of germ related diseases and help you maintain a good relationship with your friends and family. Preserving your teeth is something you must do if you want to be able to eat, which brings us to eating properly. Eating properly can help your whole body do well. Getting rest will enable you to be sharper and more on top of things, not to mention make you feel healthy and make you less accident prone. To see what Mr. Hubbard has to say about the above five points, check out

*Precept: Rule or statement advising or laying down a principle or principles or course of action regarding conduct; directions meant as a rule or rules of conduct.

Here are pages 2 & 3 of The Way to Happiness. They explain why Mr. L. Ron Hubbard wrote the book and why I want to share it with you now.

The first section is called: "Why I gave you this book", where Mr. Hubbard states, "Your survival is important to me."

The next section called "Happiness" says:

"True joy and happiness are valuable.
"If one does not survive, no joy and no happiness are obtainable.
"Trying to survive in a chaotic, dishonest and generally immoral society is difficult.
"Any individual or group seeks to obtain from life what pleasure and freedom from pain that they can.
"Your own survival can be threatened by the bad actions of others around you.
"Your own happiness can be turned to tragedy and sorrow by the dishonesty and misconduct of others.
"I am sure you can think of instances of this actually happening. Such wrongs reduce one's survival and impair one's happiness.
"You are important to other people. You are listened to. You can influence others.
"The happiness or unhappiness of others you could name is important to you.
"Without too much trouble, using this book, you can help them survive and lead happier lives.
"While no one can guarantee that anyone else can be happy, their chances of survival and happiness can be improved. And with theirs, yours will be."

"It is in your power to point the way to a less dangerous and happier life."
-L. Ron Hubbard

I am sure you can think of times when you wished you were happier or times when your friends suffered and you didn't know what you could do to help them. I'm going to be posting different sections of this book and I hope you will share them with friends and use the information yourself to lead a happier life. Your survival is important to me too, so tune in next time for another chapter of this common sense guide to better living. If you're impatient, check out and find out more about The Way to Happiness.

Wow, I haven't posted in a while

I'm BACK... I've been really busy and haven't posted in a while, but now I'm back. I've gotten some new data and testimonials about The Way To Happiness booklet that I'd like to share.

There have been programs using this booklet being implemented in a variety of places: schools, prisons, businesses, even governmental bodies. Here's what some of them have to say:

" The Way to Happiness doesn't compromise a person's existing religious beliefs or social status. In a sense it is all pervasive, that whether a Muslim or HIndu, even a nonbeliever, it can make a very telling message that is relevant to your own circumstances." - Retired Guyana Prime Minister.

"The goals and patterns and methods of The Way to Happiness seem to me to be about as dramatic a response to the prayers of the forefathers as could possibly be contrived...methodic faceted ways to improve the moral, the physical, the intellectual aspects of the culture in which we live." -Author of Roots

"We have decreased the violence in the school by 80% over the school year. We have decreased disrespectful attitudes towards teachers, decreased vulgar language and are now more apt to sit down, calm down, think about what to do and set a good example. It's a 100% improvement." - School Principal.

I'm going to start posting a section or "precept" a day from the book "The Way to Happiness" and give examples about how it can be or is being applied today.
