How many times have you said “All I want is to be Happy”? Many of us get caught up in looking outside ourselves for happiness, when happiness is something that you can choose at any time.
The old saying “Happiness is an inside job” does not refer to working indoors. It means that it is we who choose whether or not to be happy.
Most of us just want to be happy. A wonderful spiritual study, ‘A course in Miracles’, states not only that you should be happy but also that you should make yourself happy. Although this mail will assist you in your quest for happiness, it is important that you realize that, in the end, it is you who hold the key to a happier life. Remember: This is your life and not a dress rehearsal.
In any situation, you can choose how you represent what is taking place. You can give away your power and let outside circumstances take away your happiness, or you can claim your God-given right to be happy, regardless of what is going on around you.
Think about it. How many times have you become unhappy because of something completely out of your control? How many times have you let other people’s opinions of you or even the weather control how you feel?
I am sure that there was a time in your life when you thought that if you just bought enough ‘stuff’, you would be happy. You must have thought that a new car or a better stereo or bigger house would suffice. I am sure that you got used to look to other people to provide the happiness that was lacking in your life. When these methods did not work, I am sure that you would have been broken-hearted. You should now realize that all the material things and all the people in the world cannot in and out of themselves make you happy. Only You can.
You are about to embark on a wonderful journey towards self-discovery. I am sure that what you will find will surprise and delight you beyond your wildest dreams.
There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. — Wayne Dyer
You are not what you think you are, you are not what I think you are; You are what you think that I think that you are. — Bob Proctor
