We have the freedom to choose happiness over sadness, depression, or anger. Yes, it’s that simple. However, too many times we are stuck in the rut of negative emotions. We absorb this poisonous mental drug and feel alive, but in reality it is killing us, our spirit. Negative emotions are the most dangerous, life-destroying, dis-ease creating, and hazardous feelings you must avoid, and learn to reverse, if you want to live happily and healthy.
We all know that we cannot buy happiness. Money helps, you say, and I agree. But at what cost? Living comfortably is one thing, but living excessively is another. What do I mean by that? Every person on this planet should have enough. Enough food, shelter, pleasant environment and so forth. Nothing is wrong with owning things we love, but to constantly strive for more material things (bigger house, bigger car, bigger boat, you get my drift) is to focus on ego not spirit. We must be happy with what we have been given and appreciate what we have at this moment in time. And then, and only then, with great appreciation for our present abundance, will everything else be added on. Yes, naturally and effortlessly, will we be rewarded with more and more goods. Everything we need will be provided.
Why? Because it is our birthright, being part of this wonderful God, Goodness, to live in abundance. To tell the truth, we already have everything we could ever wish for, but we haven’t been aware enough to see; to clearly see what’s right in front of us.
This infinite presence, this power of the Almighty, is always within us. It is the provider, the nurturer, the protector, the mother Love. So look within you for this place of happiness and peace. The storehouse of riches is within your sub-conscious mind, ready to follow the instructions of your conscious mind.
Nothing blocks our happiness if we allow the Law to work. It’s us who put the roadblocks in front of us. Our thoughts are the only cause in this universe, and a new cause, a new thought, a new feeling, will cause a new effect. If we have produced an erroneous effect we can change it to a better one by purely changing our thoughts, our attitudes, our feelings. It takes practice I grant you, but it’s possible and it’s solely up to everyone of us on how long we want to continue to dwell in a lesser state of mind.
True and lasting happiness will come to you once you realize the power you hold, the dominion you have over your thoughts and feelings, the control you can exude over your emotions, and the awareness of how individual this life of ours truly is. So desire to be happy, reach out for this sunshine buried deep in your mentality and let it shine. This light of mind, which we call happiness, is part of this all-embracing life-force we call God, and we, the children, are made of the same substance, the same quality.
