Agreement.

A prerequisite for using the Intrinsic Practice is that you agree with what it asserts about happiness and the possibility of experiencing it. 

The Intrinsic Practice asserts that happiness exists, that it may exist for you, that you want it and that you are willing to learn and practice the tools necessary to experience it.

Before proceeding, you should determine if you agree with the following assertions about your happiness: 

I agree

If you agree with each of the four assertions about happiness, the Intrinsic Practice can potentially be very useful to you.

I disagree

If you do not agree with each of the four assertions about happiness, the Intrinsic Practice may still be useful to you, but only to a limited degree. 

Depending on your responses, you may wish to continue and consider what the Intrinsic Practice proposes.

The Intrinsic Practice proposes:

“a method with tools that can be useful to enhance one’s ability to experience happiness.”

To potentially benefit from the Intrinsic Practice, you would need to agree that, in principle, a method with tools could be useful to enhance your ability to experience happiness. If you do not agree with the concept of following a systematic method to achieve happiness, then using the Intrinsic Practice, or any other method, would likely be of limited value for you.
