How To Be Happy, No Matter What!
As we navigate this challenging economic time, it's easier to buy into lack mentality. It's easier to look at what we don't have, rather than what we do have. It's easier to see the glass half empty rather than the glass half full. It's easier to feel sorry for ourselves rather than happy for what's present. We might not have control over what the economy does, but the good news is that we have control over our attitudes around it. We can choose how we will navigate this challenging time.
This week I'm sharing more of Ralph Marston's spiritual wisdom with you. Will you choose happiness—no matter what?
"The path to true happiness
What is the path to true happiness? How far must you go to find happiness?
You need not go very far at all. For happiness is always inside you, ready whenever you are.
No object, no person, no circumstance will make you happy.
You are always happy when you decide to be.
The good things in life do not cause happiness. It is precisely the other way around.
Allow happiness to flow out from you, and the good things in life will surround you and fill your world. Choose to be happy, with no conditions imposed upon that happiness, and you'll create the ideal conditions for your life.
Happiness is a beautiful gift you can give yourself no matter what. Give it freely and it will change your world."
Enjoy these next few weeks as our country is deeply focused on the powerful energies of gratitude, love, joy, and peace. Embrace it all—everything-- and watch what shows up for you!
