I think the trouble is for people who aren’t happy because it’s just not efficient or perfect enough. There are always little things, little people, little events that “ruin” the moment, the day, our lives. Our days end up as a endless series of annoying events.
One things about meditation and going “meta” is that even some of the most annoying things become cute, quaint, funny and irrelevant, if not enjoyable.
