We used to say "I want to be happy in my life". But what we simplistically call “my life” is not a single thing. It is not a single living experience either. In fact, we humans experience life in three dimensions: the Body, the Mind and the Spirit. Thus, if we could distinguish a unique and different goal in each dimension, how this would improve our situation and relation to "happiness"?
