We are all looking for happiness and peace. Our problem is that we are looking in the wrong place. Too many of us think that that we need ‘SOMETHING”, or some condition, better yet, the stars needs to be in alignment and then I will be happy. But there is nothing “OUT THERE”. We look to outside conditions to bring us what we need, forgetting that the conditions we see “OUT THERE” came from within us.
LIFE IS OUR INNER MOST THOUGHTS AND BELIEFS BEING PROJECTED ON THE SCREEN WE CALL REALITY.
Success, peace, love and happiness, are states of mind that stem from gratitude and overall love of life. Once we are in this state of mind, all of our dreams will come true. We have been living “ass-backward” hoping for our creations to bring us peace, while we can only create peaceful conditions when we are at peace.
While there is tremendous value in bettering ourselves, elevating our standard of living, and moving up the corporate ladder, no accomplishment, acquisition of material, or achievement will bring happiness to us if we are not happy to begin with. The new house, spouse, job, or weight loss will alter the outward appearance of who we are, but do nothing for the inner sense of self. Conversely, coming to terms with our true self; that which makes us tick, what we get excited about, the things we are good at and enjoy doing (Which are our gifts to the world by the way), is the only way to feel authentic joy, as opposed to temporary, manufactured joy. Then, the cascading affect of our joy will result in us attracting the things we thought we needed to be happy to begin with. This is the age old paradigm of what comes first the chicken or the egg.
For me, I love writing these types of articles. I like speaking about positive, inspirational topics, and I really enjoy explaining how great life can be when we live intentionally from these and other such principles. SO here I sit, writing this piece for no other reason than it makes me whole. Sure I would appreciate more $$. I would also not mind losing 5, (or 35) pounds, but if I wasn’t using my insight to attempt to improve the quality of life for those that may be looking for such answers, I would be miserable.
When we look to the external reality all around us, we must cease from expecting it to SAVE us, and realize that we are seeing what we have put there. Looking within for those situations that have restricted our ability to live in joy and changing how we view life will then put an entirely different picture outside the window of our creation.
NOTHING EXTERNAL WILL ALTER YOUR LIFE AS ALL EXTERNAL CONDITIONS COME FROM WITHIN. COME TO KNOW WHO YOU REALLY ARE AND THE REWARD WILL FOLLOW!
