Common Sense is the Core to Happiness

Common Sense is the Core to Happiness, 21 Guidelines to Live By


It’s a crazy world these days when you witness people just waltzing out of stores and businesses with carts of goods they didn’t buy!  Where did common sense and morals go?  Smash and grabs are all to common these days.  They come complete with groups of morally bankrupt people breaking into shops and stores seemingly with no consequence.  Lawlessness and lack of knowing right from wrong in our culture is taught, condoned and promoted.  It does not happen by chance, there is a constant erosion taking place.  Chris and Kelly Watkins are here to counter act that with an antidote to busted values and depraved behavior, because COMMON SENSE IS THE CORE TO HAPPINESS.

You will be relieved to hear, common sense has been unearthed and Chris and Kelly are bringing it to you… there is a program called the Way to Happiness that contains 21 common sense rules. Another name you can call these rules are precepts.  A Precept means a simple guideline to follow.

Honesty The Precursor to Happiness

When you have honesty, principles and ethics, it gives you an inner core of values that allows you to take on a happier hue in life.  Misery accompanies those people that cheat Common Sense is the Core to Happiness, Sloth smiling and steal their way through life.  Happiness is clean hands. No I do not mean that literally having just come through covid some may interpret that the wrong way.  I mean when you live with a clean conscience, lead a morally clean life, when you stop being a cut throat virtue-less person, happiness smiles upon you.


Do Away with Misery and Agony

Words on picture: Integrity is being honest and having strong moral priniciples, Common Sense is the Core to Happiness. Man helping someone up a cliffDid I say we were perfect?  Oooopps I didn’t mean to infer we are all without sin.  Yes, we have all done things that we are less than proud of.  But there are ways to dig yourself out of the mountain of transgressions that might be heaped on your head.  This free online class, allows you dig to yourself out of the regret, guilt and agony you managed to pile on yourself.  It is called,  I hope you get the idea what I’m talking about, but if you don’t let me elaborate.


The Bedrock on which Happiness is Built

Transgressions boil down to agreements we break, rules we agree to follow then turn around and go against what we agreed to do.  Furthermore to avoid breaking rules in the first place and to save yourself a whole lot of suffering, be sure to understand the words that are being used and relayed to you in lifeStand on firm ground, by knowing and understanding the rules and messages relayed to you.   When you understand all communications coming to you then you do not have a break in your connection and interaction with the people around you that are involved with.


Understand Words You Read and Hear

Consequently when you do not know what is being said, and let me simplify that, it comes down to a word you don’t know, that catapults you into confusion so you go ahead and act against what was said or set out.  This leads you to commit transgressions, which in turn pile on top of your head, because you feel bad for what you did and you wind up  crushing and holding yourself down harder than any person ever could.  Combat and obliterate transgressions in the first place by preventing them from happening when you understand the communication you are receiving by using this technology:


The Exact Point, Common Sense is the Core of Happiness

“Joy and pleasure do not come from immorality!  Quite the reverse! Joy and pleasure arise only in honest hearts: the immoral lead unbelievably tragic lives filled with suffering and pain. The human virtues have little to do with gloominess. They are the bright face of life itself.”  The Way to Happiness by L. Ron Hubbard

Instilling Common Sense in our Youth

And it is not just lawlessness it is other more subtle things like the way we treat each other that needs work.   Where is our common decency to each other?  In a phone call with a Fight back against crimeand moral decay with the Way to Happiness program. Common Sense is the Core to Happinessteenager, who called me in the first place to get help, she hangs up on me in the middle of me talking and giving her solutions.    The core of happiness is common sense and it can be taught to anyone and everyone.  The Way to Happiness, common sense, making good choices program is being taught all over the world!  There are kids in learning the core values that create happiness.


The Way to Happiness Can be Taught in Schools it is not Religious

These core values can be taught in any classroom because they are secular and there is a kids version also called, Making Good Choices.  As mentioned earlier we want to make sure the information is easily understood, so there is a kids version of The Way to Happiness program called, Making Good Choices.  Making Good Choices is more simple and understandable for kids, it is the exact same program.  It is time to combat CRT, Critical Race Theory by teaching, Common Sense the Core to Happiness.


There are kids from all over the world learning the Way to Happiness in school.  It is Common Sense the Core to Happiness happening… 

words Set a Good Example with a white flower


One precept we have to focus on to correct in this bottomless pit of people devoid of morals is, set a good exampleSet a Good Example is precept or chapter 6 in the Way to Happiness program.  It is in your control to live up to high standards and be a role model for others to look up to.  People will follow and admire you when you follow these precepts and begin to walk on a higher path.  Get admiration for being a decent, happy person with common sense.


Sound familiar?   Yes, it is comparable to the Golden Rule.  One reason the Golden Rule might has subsided or lost it’s prominence in our world is because when words are archaic or words used that people do not understand, then they do not duplicate the concept and they can not in act that rule.

Allow me to give you an aside here: there is new technology today that exists where you can learn how to study any subject.  This new technology of how to study and learn anything also remedies many problems of non ethical activities in our society.  I can’t emphasize this enough if you understand the words you read, hear, study you will be on solid ground in understanding your environment and your world, there will not need to come about a breaking of agreements of social guidelines.

This new study technology is helping people all over the world same as Common Sense is the Core to Happiness is bringing society to a new higher level.

Integrity and Honesty FREE Online Class Disrupts Moral Decline

words do the right thing even when no one is looking. It's called integrity. cartoon pic of person helping another person up a hill. Plus there is also the technology of Integrity and Honesty which corrects the moral decay and depravity of our culture.  Over time rules get buried and lost because people no longer understand what the words of rules means.  On the other hand this precept of Try Not To Do Things To Others That You Would Not Like Them to Do To You is written in modern language that people can understand, follow, duplicate, assimilate, live by, practice, share and teach others.



That is to say, self explanatory right?  Let’s fill it out more so that you can understand and implement this into your life.words "man is basically good" person helping another person up a cliff
Written out this way, “try to treat others as you would want them to treat you” makes it more easy to understand, follow and do because it is written in modern terms rather than trying to understand and duplicate the golden rule of, do unto others as you would have them do unto you.


True Story Example

For example, even the smallest actions in life I had a hard time knowing how to act or treat others like, could I ask a waitress for something or maybe I shouldn’t ask.  In addition, many debate is it better to treat others mean to get ahead in life by being ruthless and rude?  Well, this precept answers that question, try to treat others as you would want them to treat you.  

Furthermore a real life story is, before I learned these basic life rules of common sense I didn’t know how to treat people.  Then I learned I could say to myself, how would I want to be treated?  With that viewpoint, I could finally act appropriately.  Honestly before knowing this common sense rule I used to be so undecided and question was it better to treat people mean?  Is it better to be cut throat?  Or on the other hand, was it better to be nice to people?

If you want to live a happy life, you know which one is the correct answer.  With these precepts you can have confidence in living more abundantly and better, because the results will show in how you feel and how people around you respond.
