Do we want to be happy all the time? I guess that would be the first question I would ask myself. What does it mean to be happy? I cannot go any farther until I know this answer. I, of course, have asked this question of myself many times. Mostly when I have had the most challenges. Because I have come to an understanding that what I am feeling today is what I do experience tomorrow.
Yes, that is what I mean. All those feelings that I swear I am not having, well, when I took a good and honest look at what was going through my mind guess what… I had been having thoughts of fears, sadness, and anger at one situation or another. So, as I started putting those kinds of thoughts on my scale, I could very easily see if I did really want to be happy.
I am saying this because I know I have total and complete control of my inner thoughts. I was choosing thoughts that were in complete discord from what I was claiming I wanted to experience. I can tell you that was a little disheartening at first. How was I going to be in control of my life if I could not even control how my moment to moment thoughts were going?
I thought I was lost before I could even begin. I thought of myself as a pretty even-keeled person. Yet my experiences were showing me something different.
I did not give up though, I kept practicing what I was teaching and as time kept going I started to see with very clear vision just how our thoughts interrupted the flow of our feelings; how our feelings have the Universe match us so that in the next moments we are having the physical experience.
I became aware that even though we say we desire to be happy, we really just want someone else to take on the task for us. We do not want truly to make the changes in our own thoughts and feelings that will actually make us happy.
So, the next time you hear yourself say , “I just want to be happy.” please be aware you have all the power right in the core of your being to make it a reality. You just want to now learn what the tools are and how to use them to be successful each and every day!
