The path to Happiness…

  I was unhappy with Life, I still am, and so I asked the question, “What should I do to become happy?”

I then thought  and came up with a list of things, materialistic things, that would make me happy. One of them was a huge house. I thought I will be happy when I buy myself a huge house. I also hated the house that I lived in, and so a new house was important to me. Through my search for happiness, I learnt that happiness shouldn’t be sought from materialistic things and that Happiness is a state of mind. This was 5 years ago.

I still live in the same house and I am still unhappy. You see, houses require a ton of money.

“What should I do to become happy?”

“Happiness is only a state of mind.”

Irritated, I ask, “OK, let me rephrase the question. What should I do to achieve that state of mind?”

A quick Google search will take you to pages that state, “Do things that you like, find a hobby, learn something new, take a break and go on a trip, climb mountains, fall in love, buy a dog/cat,” and so on and so forth. While all this is true, these things will only give temporary happiness except for falling in love. Falling in love with a girl/boy is not easy when we are already unhappy with life, and it could also become a huge burden in addition to the things that makes us unhappy in some cases.

When so many external forces affect us, achieving a happy state of mind is not an easy task. Internally, we can only do so much.

So how to become happy? Or How do we achieve this state of mind?

Meditation is the answer. Conquering the mind and having it under our control is of utmost importance to do all the things that Rhonda Byrne asks us to do in her books. I knew this a long time back and so I bought books on meditation and also relied on the Internet to learn meditation which was a big mistake and a huge waste of time. Of course, meditation could be learnt through books and through the Internet, but in my case it didn’t help. And so, as I had stated in my ‘About this blog‘ page, I enrolled myself in a meditation class. Yesterday(30/11/2013) was my first class and I was so happy with it. The thought that there is something worthwhile to do during the weekends and there is still something that could change my life gives me a lot of positive energy.

Meditation is the path to Happiness.

Choose what you Love

When you see a happy couple madly in love, and you desperately want a partner in your life, life is presenting the happy couple to you – for you to choose. But if you feel sad or lonely when you see the couple, you just gave out negativity, and in effect said, “I want to be sad and lonely.” You have to give love for what you want.

If you meet someone who has qualities you wish you had, love those qualities and feel good about those qualities in that person, and you are bringing those qualities to yourself.  If someone is smart, beautiful, or talented, love those qualities and you choose those things for you!

When you’re playing a sport another person wins, when a work colleague tells you they got a pay raise, when someone wins the lottery, when a friend tells you that their spouse gave them a surprise gift of a weekend away, or that they bought a beautiful new house, or that their child won a scholarship, you should be as excited as they are. You should be as excited and happy as though it has happened to you, because then you are saying yes to it, then you are giving love to it, and you are bringing it to you!

This is the miracle that happens every time to those who really love: the more they give, the more they possess.

– Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)

 

The Purpose of Life

Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice.

– William Jennings Bryan (1860-1925)

Life follows you. Absolutely everything you experience in your life is a result of what you have given out in your thoughts and feelings, whether you realize you have given them or not. Life is not happening to you…life is following you. Your destiny is in your hands. Whatever you think, whatever you feel, will decide your life.

If your life is far from wonderful, then you have inadvertently been labeling all the bad things. You’ve allowed the things you think are bad to distract you from the purpose of your life. Because the purpose of your life is to love! The purpose of your life is joy. The purpose of your life is to choose the things that you love and turn away from the things you don’t love so you don’t choose them. 

The Importance of feeling good (Part 3)

Whenever your feeling is in conflict with your wish, feeling will be the victor.

– Neville Goddard (1905 – 1972)

Every person is surrounded by a magnetic field, and so wherever you go, the magnetic field goes with you. You may have seen ancient pictures depicting something similar where they show an aura or halo surrounding a person. The aura surrounding each person is actually an electromagnetic field, and it’s through the magnetism of your field that surrounds you that you attract everything in your life. What determines whether your field is positive or negative is your feelings!

Through your ability to think and feel, you have dominion over all creation.

– Neville Goddard (1905-1972)

When you can give love, no matter what the circumstances, the circumstances must change! You can change anything in your life by harnessing the greatest power in the universe, and all you have to do is give love!

Your feelings are your god.

– Chanakya (350-275 BC)

Imagination

Every moment of your life is infinitely creative and the Universe is endlessly bountiful. Just put forth a clear enough request, and everything your heart desires must come to you.

– Shakti Gawain (1948- )

Your imagination connects you to what you want. Your desire and feelings of love create the magnetism, the magnetic power, drawing your desire to you. This completes your part in the creation process.

Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine, and at last you create what you will.

– George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

The secret of the master mind is found wholly in the use of imagination.

– Christian D. Larson (1874-1962)

History has proven that those who dare to imagine the impossible are the ones who break all human limitations. In every field of human endeavour, whether science, medicine, sports, the arts, or technology, the names of the people who imagined the impossible are engraved in our history. By breaking the limits of their imagination, they changed the world.

Many people put their feelings on automatic pilot; their feelings are reactions to what happens to them. However, they don’t realize that it’s their feelings that are the cause of what happens to them.

Throw out of your vocabulary words like terrible, horrible, disgusting, and awful. Use more words like fantastic, amazing, fabulous, brilliant, and wonderful.

If you are feeling enthusiastic, your frequency of enthusiasm will attract enthusiastic people, situations, and events. If you are feeling fearful, your frequency of fear will attract fearful people, situations, and events to you. You are never left in any doubt about the frequency you’re on because your frequency is always exactly whatever you’re feeling! You can change your frequency at anytime by changing how you feel, and everything around you will change because you’re on a new frequency.

It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.

Epictetus (55-135)

When you change the way you feel, the past has gone! When you change the way you feel, your life changes.

Do not waste one moment in regret, for to think feelingly of the mistakes of the past is to re-infect yourself.

– Neville Goddard (1905-1972)

The life purpose for each of us is to overcome negativity by choosing love.

You can have whatever you love and want, but you have to harmonize with love, and that means there are no excuses for not giving love. Excuses and justifications prevent you from receiving everything you want. They prevent you from having an amazing life.

Amplify your good feelings by thinking about all the things you love. Count the things you love nonstop one after the other. Keep listing everything you love until you feel amazing.

How Rhonda Byrne wrote her books

When you’re feeling any good feeling, you can also amplify it by looking for things you love. Before sitting down to write my books, each day I spent several minutes amplifying my good feelings. To amplify my good feelings, I thought about all the feelings I love. I counted the things that I love nonstop one after the other: my family, friends, home, flowers in the garden, weather, colours, situations, events, and things I loved that happened during the week, month, or year. I kept listing everything I love  in my mind until I felt amazing. Then I sat down to write. It’s as easy as that to amplify your good feelings, and you can do it anywhere, at any time.

– Rhonda Byrne

Be careful of your moods and feelings, for there is an unbroken connection between your feelings and your visible world.

– Neville Goddard (1905-1972)

You don’t have to battle and struggle to change the circumstances of your life; all you have to do is give love through good feelings, and what you want will appear!

Do not wait for things to happen to be happy. You have to be happy first, and give happiness, to receive happy things! It can’t happen any other way, because whatever you want to receive in life, you must give first! You are in command of your feelings, you are in command of your love, and the force of love will give back to you whatever you give out.
