Consider 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, however, this 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.

Think 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 a happy 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.

What makes you 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.

Tryon Edwards.

No man can be happy who does not think himself so.

Marcus Autoninus.

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.

J. Gilchrist Lawson.

Happiness consists of activity - such is the constitution of our nature. If is a running stream and not a stagnant pool.

J.M. Good

The common course of things is in favor of happiness.
