I think you'd enjoy Mihaly's work: [^].

What I find interesting is his combination of an emphasis on "total immersion" in the "state of flow,"
Quote:
Flow is being completely involved in an activity for its own sake. The ego falls away. Time flies. Every action, movement, and thought follows inevitably from the previous one, like playing jazz.
combined with a very Stoic (as in Marcus Aurelius' "Meditations") view of the ability, and necessity, of/for the individual to create their own mental life;
Quote:
What I "discovered" was that happiness is not something that happens. It is not the result of good fortune or random chance. It is not something that money can buy or power command. It does not depend on outside events, but, rather, on how we interpret them. Happiness, in fact, is a condition that must be prepared for, cultivated, and defended privately by each person. People who learn to control inner experience will be able to determine the quality of their lives, which is as close as any of us can come to being happy.

«Where is the Life we have lost in living? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?» T. S. Elliot
