whether we are rich or poor,
educated or uneducated,
whatever our nationality, colour,
social status or ideology may be,
the purpose of our lives is to be happy
This simple and beautiful statement sums up the essence of our being. Happiness is a birthright. It is in the matrix of the universe.
Civilization, societal structures and rituals have over the centuries skewed our perception of what it really means to be a human being who has chosen this experience on this earth in this time.
Our incredible personal power eludes most of us, simply because we have lost touch with ourselves and believed incorrect information about our true nature. In the process of focusing outside of ourselves instead of within ourselves we have given away our power.
As the old structures are gradually falling apart and we are beginning to re-connect to who we really are we are also re-defining core values and beliefs of our existence. As our vision opens up beyond old perceptions and the constraints of religious teachings we are literally waking up to our dormant strengths.
We are learning that guilt, fear, aggression are characteristics of an old paradigm we cannot identify with any longer.
In amongst all the new scientific revelations which are confirming teachings from the old wisdom traditions but viewed through the lens of the contemporary world, a liberation on a massive scale is taking place. As the world at large is waking up and the old is fighting against the new we are beginning to realize our misperceptions and are moving ever closer to self actualization.
Maybe the biggest realization anyone can have is that it is okay to be happy and that you can train yourself to be happy, free from guilt and fear and other limiting emotions and beliefs without compromising your ability to survive.
The amigdala, the oldest part of our brain still has the old fight and flight responses necessary for survival millennia ago, stored in its memory bank. We think predominantly negatively and its automatic. It is old programming, locked into our subconscious mind.
However, as we are growing in awareness and our views of the world and ourselves are changing. Many of us are moving beyond the need to be critical, to focus on what is wrong and fight in order to win and survive. There is a growing realization that we can have successful lives simply by tuning into the energies of contentment, acceptance, gratitude and love.
These higher energies are truth and everything that is of truth flows easily. Happiness evolves through the practice of self acceptance, non judgement and love.
At this point I would like to share with you a simple practice I have adopted: I am silently sending everyone I speak to this blessing: “May you be well and may you have an easy life.”
The difference this little practice makes to my well being is palpable: I get to feel happier, negativity falls away and people respond to me in a very different way. In this way I get to stay in a higher energy level for longer and longer periods, particularly when going out and encountering the many negative energies we are all exposed to.
The feeling of happiness frees you up to be yourself and connect to your true self. It cuts out a lot of the mind chatter we all experience until we take hold of our mind and train to direct it at will and with congruence. When you experience feeling this grounding and can maintain this feeling, you are in the flow of receiving the energies that manifest success.
This principle applies to everyone. Whatever your profession, where ever you are on your path, once you have learnt to tune into the feeling of happiness and make it part of who you are you will be able to manifest success in all areas of your life.
