Happiness Is Not Something Ready Made

img1440034215496“Happiness Is Not Something Ready Made. It Comes From Your Own Actions.”
– Dalai Lama

The above quote inspired me to write an article on happiness. My happiness blog is now hosted by Catherine B. Roy.

Catherine hosts a variety of motivational writers, speakers, coaches, and practitioners who can help you live a life of harmony and success. You can read my blog at Happiness Is not Something Ready Made or continue on this page. Feel free to leave your feedback or comment. 

Choose Happiness Daily

Happiness is a result of your daily choices. Choose happiness. You are a creator; you are the maker of your destiny. That is the law. Your beliefs and thoughts that drive your actions are mirrored in your life. Choose to feel happy with what is at each present moment, thus empowering yourself to let more contentment and happiness flow into your life.

Are You Unhappy with Your Present Situation?

Do not dwell on any unhappy and painful experiences as that is what you will continue to experience. Do not bring your mind toward it. Afford yourself the best thoughts. Accept where you are now and tell yourself that all is being taken care of. Believe that. Even if you cannot see it at the moment, all those are “gifts” and they become a springboard you will take off from toward living an aware, consciously happy life.

Repair That Which Ails You Within, You Are Powerful

If you do not repair all that which ails you within, the damage will be shown without. Regardless of how you feel, with the proper attitudes, you can derive a lot from your life. Change your outlook and viewpoint – it is your power that comes into play and changes your attitudes. Are you unhappy? Renew your thoughts. Renew your actions. Discard the feeling of unhappiness and start fresh. You can move in and out of feelings and moods. Do it. You will be amazed at the power you have. Without changing the circumstances, you will be in another space.

Be Consistent

Be consistent in thinking of positive and happy times. If something pleases you, partake in it. Let the resonance within your heart be your guidance. Consult with your heart; ask, do you like it my heart? Are you sad? Are you joyful? Pleased? Playful? Happy?

You Are Your Own Charge.

You are the concern of yourself. You are the subject of your life. You are your own charge. Do not think that anybody in any way is responsible for your upkeep, your enjoyment, your happiness. Do not expect others to give you that support. Do not expect others to be responsible for you, to look out for you.

Your enthusiasm comes from you. Your exuberance comes from you. Your depression comes from you. Your melodramatics comes from you. It is all about you – no one else needs to feed your physical, emotional and spiritual needs. You are a creator of all that which comes to your life through your care, and you attract those of the same beliefs to you.

Support Yourself

Bring harmony into your life. Bring harmony into your being-ness, into your surroundings. Be pleased with what you have. Make it even prettier. Make it even more interesting. Be pleased with yourself and take time for yourself. Take care of your spirit, mind, and body – consider meditating, going for walks in nature, listening to the soothing music. Please yourself whenever you feel like pleasing yourself – be diligent in the support of yourself.

You Have Began

This is the beginning of your understanding, the beginning of your recognizing the calling of your soul heard through the clamour of the material world. Once you connect, your happiness is always with you. Once you connect, you will always find joy.

Namaste and be well.

More on the Flow

IMG_5025

I have been away on vacation for two months. While away, I experienced an ease and flow of me, unencumbered by real or imagined responsibilities calling me to notice them and look after them. Although, I have been home for a couple of weeks, the feelings and impressions remain:


Sun, sand, ocean. Hot air. Cool breeze.
Smiling people, talking with ease.
Swimming, smoothly gliding in the softly caressing me water.
A feeling of expansion, of utter bliss.
No responsibilities.
No time constraints.
No restrictions. No limitations.

Go with the Flow

mountain_stream_and_moss_193711It has been all about flow for me these past several days. To slide and flow with the flow around me, as that is where I need to be – what is around me is important for me, otherwise, it would not be in my space.

It has been about seeing the connection, letting the events, places, and people unravel around me. Letting others experience their flow the way they understand it, and experience mine the way I understand it.

Do you experience a clash? So be it. Do not dwell on it. Let it pass from your space. Stay in your space; do not enter the clash’s space. [Read more…]

Wisdom

butterflies-95358 aToday, I came across a beautiful website and was taken by the wisdom of Native American Indian Traditional Code of Ethics*. I would like to share it with all of you. Below is my shortened adaptation of what I read, as those passages so resonated with me:

– Each morning upon rising, and each evening before sleeping, give thanks for the life within you and for all life; consider your thoughts and actions of the past day and seek for the courage and strength to be a better person.

– Show respect – showing respect is a basic law of life. Treat every person from the tiniest child to the oldest elder with respect at all times.

– Treat the earth and all of her aspects as your Mother. Do no pollute our Mother, rise up with wisdom to defend her.

– Be truthful at all times and under all conditions.

– The hurt of one is the hurt of all, the honour of one is the honour of all.

– All the races in the world are like the different coloured flowers of one meadow. All are children of the Creator.

– Serve others. Happiness comes to those who dedicate their lives to the service of others.

– Observe moderation and balance in all things.

– Know those things that lead to your well-being, and those things that lead to your ruin.

– Listen to and follow the guidance given to your heart. Expect guidance to come in many forms; in prayer, in dreams, in times of quiet solitude, and in the words and deeds of wise elders and friends.

One of the above pearls of wisdom stated: “Treat the earth and all of her aspects as your Mother”.

Our Mother Earth is suffering from mismanagement by humans. Through respecting ourselves and living in balance and harmony, we come to respect all sentient and inanimate beings:

The Earth will not become extinct,
the Earth will not be shaken that badly.
The Earth will be creative and will recover and madly
will fall in love with the people again.

These people will not be of today’s nature.
These people will be a noble breed.
These people will understand nature.
These people will be descendants of today’s humanity.

These people will be of a fine mould,
a mould of godly thoughts and deeds.
These people are here already today—
some of them are ready, some are awakening.

The above is an excerpt from a poem in Evolution, the fourth book of my five books Purposeful Mind series. Visionary verses in Evolution offer you insights into possible future of our bodies, our planet, and more.
