(Easier said than done right?!)
When we are truly happy in the moment of life, we feel full, complete, whole and satisfied. Time stands still. Clarity is in our hearts. We LOVE life, others and ourselves. We feel good and authentic inside. And when we feel good, we do “good” in this world. We share our overflowing happiness with others, which then recycles right back to us. Our happiness is a gift to the world.
So if it is that simple – BE HAPPY – why do we make it so elusive, difficult and complex to achieve?
Because we have to let go of lots and lots of old patterns and LOOK within. (We can’t blame our troubled pasts, current situations, or worried futures anymore!)
Who decides whether you should be happy or unhappy? You do of course!
It is solely our responsibility to be happy: it’s no one else’s job. Money, status, material possessions, relationships, living environments, attractiveness, health, jobs, can all enhance our happiness but will not make us happy unless we are happy within first.
This means we need to begin to figure out who we really are; what we truly want in this temporary experience we call life; and what our “life’s work” or purpose is down here on planet Earth. Once we realize that it is our job to re-acquaint ourselves with our own internal happiness and begin to ask these questions about ourselves, then we are on our way to a blissful self-empowering, spiritual life, regardless of all our past, present, and future circumstances and problems.
“Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.” – Groucho Marx
