Helpful Keys To Help You Discover, Enjoy And Hold On To Happiness

Helpful Keys to Help You Discover, Enjoy & Hold On to Happiness

Most people are about as happy
as they make up their minds to be.”
—Abraham Lincoln

Everyone seeks greater happiness. Yet few can claim they are truly happy.

Does happiness arise by attaining a certain status, or by finding the love of your life? All the great masters and religious scriptures tell us happiness can only be found within. Nothing outside of your Self can bring genuine lasting happiness.

If you chase happiness in the things of this world, you will eventually become disillusioned. No matter how much stuff you acquire, how much you are admired or loved, how much money, status, or prestige you get, how famous you are, how many accolades you receive, how many children you raise, how much you travel, how thin and beautiful you are, how expensive your house, car, designer clothing, and diamond jewelry, you will never find lasting happiness from any of these.

The only real happiness comes from inner contentment, acquired from living a genuine, purposeful, and meaningful life, for the good of all.

When you connect with who you really are, and express your true talents and abilities, in service to others, then you realize true, lasting contentment.

Expressing Joy

Joy is your true nature.

When you realize who you really are, then happiness becomes your daily experience.

I AM pure joy. I AM a bringer of joy.
I bring pleasure, happiness, and cheer to myself and others.
My sense of humor lightens and brightens myself and others.
I AM the joy of life, and I express joy now and always.
Joy flows through me with every heartbeat.
I now love my life. My channels of joy are wide open.
I AM now completely open to life’s joy and happiness.
Thank you, God, and SO IT IS.

Song of Celebration

As you celebrate each day with gratitude, and praise every day as a day of grace and joy, your life is filled with miracles and wonders.

My soul sings a song of joy and celebration.
My kind and loving words
Gladden my heart and the heart of others.
I live in the ever joyous now. My life is joy.
I embrace the joy and wonder this day holds.
I rejoice in this day the Lord has made,
And in what God is fulfilling through me now.
Thank you, God, and SO IT IS.

Happiness Right Now

People imagine they will be happy when “such-and-such” happens. However, when they achieve that, they are not content, but instead seek the next thing they think will make them happy.

If you cannot be happy in this present moment, you will never be happy in any moment.

Whatever I have imagined would make me happy
Is no longer required to make me happy.
For I AM already happy as I AM, right here, right now.
I now let go of all illusory cravings and addictions
That have prevented me from being happy right now.
I AM content with my life exactly as it is, right now.
I AM filled with calm satisfaction and equanimity
I AM filled with inner peace, now and always.
Thank you, God, and SO IT IS.
