It is easier to have a happy day if you prevent unhappiness from entering at all.
But this takes practice in the rules that will protect you from the ravages of fear.
When this has been achieved, the sorry dream of judgement has forever been undone.
But meanwhile, you have need for practising the rules for its undoing.

@cosullivan By 'happy day' do you mean a day of quiet enjoyments like contentment (not to be confused with complacency)? Those are sustainable, whereas e.g. joy and strong pleasure aren't [in this life].

@pithi joy is sustainable, pleasure is not. Joy is not synonymous with hedonism. By happy I mean removed from despair, loneliness, doom and anxiety, knowing what is truth and rejecting what is known to be illusion.
