Eudaimonia (Greek: εὐδαιμονία) is a classical Greek word commonly translated as 'happiness'. Etymologically, it consists of the word "eu" ("good" or "well being") and "daimōn" ("spirit" or "minor deity", used by extension to mean one's lot or fortune). Although popular usage of the term happiness refers to a state of mind, related to joy or pleasure, eudaimonia rarely has such connotations, and the less subjective "human flourishing" is often preferred as a translation. —Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eudaimonia
This vortex deals with these ideas as they apply to individuals, and also to their extension into the work of groups in every kind of venture or network collaboration. Good life depends not only on what you take into yourself, but also on what you choose to allow to surround yourself, including organizations that provide opportunity to employ your abilities, and providers of governance services.

* The aphorism, "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he," not only embraces the whole of a man's being, but is so comprehensive as to reach out to every condition and circumstance of his life. A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.’ —James Allen
