An tiny minority, “spiritual” questers, try to find happiness by disciplining themselves in prayer, meditation, chanting, breathing, or “processing” to achieve altered or “high” states of consciousness.

The psychological world believes happiness can be attained by removing psychological barriers: disturbing experiences and memories, self-limiting concepts, and unforgiving thoughts lodged in the subconscious mind.

Such systems are often challenged by the bursty nature of the applications.

In this paper, we present BARRE (Burst Accommodation through Rate REconfiguration), a system to address the problem of bursty data streams in distributed stream processing systems.

Why do we feel happy when we achieve a goal or obtain a desired object?

According to spiritual science all human activities are motivated by a separation from our natural state of happiness, a separation that gives rise to two apparently contradictory instincts, Fear and Desire, both of which extrovert and disturb the mind, producing many positive and negative emotions. So the fear of unhappiness is just the desire for happiness.

If I’m feeling miserable, my actions will be calculated to remove or lessen the misery, a situation I view as an increase in happiness.

When a better state is inconceivable, I refrain from activities that might compromise it.

When I say I want a new car or a new lover I don’t actually want the object. If happiness or unhappiness doesn’t come from objects, it has to be coming from me. Because the attainment of desired objects or the avoidance of feared objects temporarily removes the wall of fear and desire separating us from the Self, the source of happiness.
