But exceptions exist to every rule, and sometimes not saying the proper thing is wrong.We often keep silent because we do not know what to say.The idea of Mussar is to use meditations, guided imagery, and exercises to penetrate the subconscious. If it's so easy, how come everyone isn't radiating joy? It's simple to say, but the very fact that not everyone consistently applies it shows that it doesn't come naturally to many people.

"Act with enthusiastic joy and you will actually experience it," was expressed by Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto in his classic work "Path of The Just" written in 1740.
