holding happiness as an intention for this new year. Think
about the word happiness for a moment. Let it speak to your heart and feel the gladness,
the delight, and the joy
it brings up for you. This is the energy that opens doors to order and harmony in our lives, the vibration that evokes the Law of Attraction.
Can we not be happy for all the blessings that
flow to us? I know it may be difficult to truly be happy when things seem to catch
us on the old roller coaster ride of life,
is when we should remember to stand tall and remind ourselves
that happiness can be a
permanent part of our nature.
It is up to us.
now of those happy moments which
stand out in your mind. I did that recently and shadows dissolved into the light. My wife Jan's laughter makes me happy, as does her loving playfulness... so does cream of wheat cereal... classical
music that wakes us up in the morning to
see the sunrise from our bedroom window... a fun-to-read novel with
ending... being with our lovely daughters... playing with
good friends... flames in the fireplace that seem to dance
with the music... a feeling of the Divine Presence, or the touch of Love from within. I could go on, but you get the idea.
happy? Take a few minutes and open your heart with smiles. It will certainly help heal anything that comes up today that might bother you. More than anything it
will help your consciousness to be more transparent
for the activity of
Spirit to shine through you.
Here are some
quotes I found on happiness to help you ponder further.
Happiness is like manna; it is to be gathered in
grains and enjoyed every day.
No man can be happy who does not think himself so.
It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy that makes us happy.
The habit of being happy enables one to be freed, or largely freed from the domination of outward conditions.
Robert Louis Stev enson
Happiness is the supreme object of exist ence.
Happiness consists of activity - such is the constitution of our
nature. If is a running
stream and not a stagnant pool.
The common course of things is in favor of happiness.
