True and Lasting Happiness

When we are content, we are on purpose.
When we are loving, we are happy.
When we are fully present, we are at peace.
When we are joyfully living, we are truly happy.

It makes sense that a loving creator creates happiness, beauty and goodness.
It appears that this is not a random and chaotic universe: there is intrinsic order.
It feels right that Goodness creates Good and Love begets Love.
So when we are not happy, good, loving and beautiful, we must be off purpose.

A Course in Miracles says “God’s Will for you is perfect happiness.”
When we are unhappy, we have chosen a path of fear, judgment, sacrifice or harm.
When we have chosen a path of joy and love and generosity and trust, we are happy.
So why would we go away from what brings us simple natural ease and inner contentment?

Where we feel guilty for any reason, we often punish ourselves unconsciously.
Where we forget to Love, we feel separate and alone and fearful.
When we are confused and choosing to follow others who are lost, we feel uncertain.
When we follow the complex ways of the world, we often lose our sense of direction and inspiration.

Life at its best is simple.
Life at peace is lived in the present.
Life when lived with inspiration guiding us is enjoying what is and giving what is asked.
Life is fun, safe and easy when we are inner listening and following the way of Love.

Do we need more?
Do we forget to be kind?
Do we lose our way?
Do we try to figure our stuff?
Do we waste our talents and time?
Do we judge, compare and evaluate?
Do we defend, justify and make excuses?
Do we try to get life to meet our demands?
Do we stop, quiet our minds and listen within?

Most of us are so busy dealing with the external complexities, we forget what really matters?
Most of humanity is focused on media, technology and endless talking and forgetting to enjoy what is.

Consider a life of instant forgiveness and constant appreciation.
What we focus on becomes our world, our reality.
When we are forgiving the confusion and complexities and appreciating the Goodness, life is Good.
See the path of true and lasting happiness and enjoy life.

Loving you,

Perfect love is simple, clear and true. It is peaceful, natural and innocent.
