Choose to Be Happy!

I choose happiness today.
I am content and in love.
I choose the emotions I feel.
I prefer being happy with what is.

Choose Happiness!

Did you know you can choose how you feel?
Do you know how to change your mind?
Are you willing to be happy?
Happiness is an inside job.

What will it take to be happy?
Some believe it requires a perfect world.
Some believe others need to make them happy.
Some believe there is no way to be happy all the time.

What do you believe?
If you think happiness comes from outside, it will be illusive.
If you think happiness requires a perfect life, you will be frustrated.
If you think happiness is the result of the right relationship, you may be disappointed.

Happiness is a choice.
It is a conscious choice to be a happy person.
Being grateful is a good beginning.
Honoring your Authentic Self is key.

If something external is needed to make you happy, you will continually change your mind.
If you think money and things make you happy, you will keep acquiring and trying things.
If habits and addictions give you temporary pleasure and high, you will keep choosing more.
If people’s opinions, admiration, and approval make you happy, you will look for the right people.

Happiness is our natural state.
When we are living on purpose and in truth,? you will be content with your life.
If you are trying to become and making things work for you, you will find intermittent discouragement.
When you are willing to love, trust and respect yourself as you are, you will be happy and enjoy your life.

When we step into the world of fear, judgments, opinions, we create our own self judgment.
When we allow all things to work for us, trusting we are learning, we will be content.
When we let go and let Good simply be, we will be at peace.
When we choose?? peace instead of what others may teach, we will be peaceful.

Happiness is being filled with Gratitude, Peace and Love.
Happiness is allowing what is to be.
Happiness is knowing all is well.
Happiness is waking up with expectancy, gratitude and wonder.

Let us choose what we want to experience and live it well.
Let us be grateful for the opportunities to heal and grow, learn and teach, love for the sake of Loving.

Loving us all as One,
Betty Lue

This writing by Randall Keller may remind you of what you already know or what to learn!

God-Realization is being happy.
Fulfilling your mission is being happy.
No littleness, lack or limitation is being happy.
Creating your life your way is being happy.

Are you willing to look at what it would take for you to be happy?  Can you remember ever  giving yourself the experience of perfect happiness—no cares,  worries, disturbances?  Is it possible you are here to learn to be willing to choose happiness for yourSelf?  Could it be that this life is a gift for you to explore and experiment, to contemplate, discriminate and sort through what will bring you happiness and inner peace?
We are children.  This is our playground.  We are given unlimited resources and a loving parent saying "Yes".   Are we still listening to the clamoring of unhappy friends who are not choosing their own perfect life?
Do you believe it is possible to have all you want and more? Then you are on your way to happiness.   Now,  the next step is what do you want.   When you see it, have it and ask again.   "Does this give me happiness?"  Some­times a cookie is what I think I want and when I eat it, I may still want more and eat so many that I feel bad.   The cookie was merely a handy substitute for what I thought I wanted.   Therefore, we often don't know what we want because we have suppressed and covered our wants with substi­tutes, addictions, and defenses against the Truth.
For me, life is being born into a world of love, safety and unlimited opportunity in which to experience and discover who I am and what I want in order to be happy.   For me, a community is an open arena of "Yes-ness" in which we can explore, experiment, discover and experience what we really want.  Living my life on purpose is a moment to moment experience of being, doing and having what is happy for me.   Where I am confused, afraid, self-limiting, I ask my internal Father and I am guided perfectly.   My father and mother love me and trust me totally to be happy.

I notice that where I am not choosing to be happy, many others seem to feel bad, guilty and scared.  When I choose to be on purpose, in love and bubbling with happiness, others around me are then not distracted by my pain. They then notice their own.  Therefore, the highest gift of love we have to give each other is our total freedom to be happy.

I not only am willing to be happy, I choose to be happy every moment. I consciously choose to eliminate from my life those areas that do not offer me happiness and peace.   Do you see that I am not free until you are free? We go together to perfect happiness.

I know Mother-Father God, the loving parent, is here.  I know all is well. I know God and His comfort and guidance are ever-present.   I know all we have to do is ask for help and open ourselves to receive what we need and the way is shown.  I am here to show the way.  I am here to open the possibility of being safe, strong and free. I would love to open the possibility of unlimited playgrounds, games and experiences.

Can you see that all things are possible?  There are no limits.  We have taught and learned that to be limited is to be safe.   Can you see now that there is no harm?   Everything is offered to us again and again until we choose what we really want.

Can you see there is no lack?  There is an abundance of all resources.  We have merely chosen, in our fear of lack,  to create the appearance of lack, Can  you  see that no one is little or less?   Everyone is great.  Every aspect has value to the whole.  We have merely chosen to diminish or exalt ourselves.  When anyone is not whole and free, I cannot be either.

I challenge you to contemplate—"What brings me true happiness and inner peace?"   For me, community is an opportunity to come together in the Spirit of freedom and learn to trust that we can choose to be happy and set others free to be happy too.

Let's go do something fun together or alone.  Solitary play, parallel play, cooperative play—all have their place and time.   We can create anything we want to play—play house, play doctor (healer), play store, play with colors and sounds, be silly, play school.  When we don't want to play any more, we stop and do something else.  Games are "child's play" only when they are fun.  So let's choose games that are fun.

When I play school (Reunion Living Ministry), I will make the game simple, easy and light. The only grades are what we give ourselves - the gifts of awakening, freedom from comparison and judgment. I only enjoy creative paperwork, so I will have only creative paperwork.   I am not a lover of history, so I won't keep records.  This will be a present moment school in which teachers and students are listening and learning from their inner wisdom every moment.
What do you want to play?
Living a "routine" life is patterned by our culture and habits.  Becoming aware of better ways to live awakens us to the possibility of more freedom, joy, love, creative expression and sense of well-being and wholeness.

Begin questioning the value of everything in your life.  Allow those habits that no longer have value to drop away. Enjoy and receive from those activities and experiences and relationships that continue to feed you and serve your Highest Good.
