Choose happiness over and over until it is your natural response to life.
“Happiness does not depend on what you have or who you are. It solely relies on what you think.”
True happiness is not dependent upon outside factors. It is simply a peaceful acceptance of the present moment while residing in the knowledge of one’s own empowerment. Don’t wait for your life situation to fall into place before you choose to feel happy and fulfilled. It’s important to cultivate the ability to be at ease with the unknown. Doubt (and all that arises from it) is simply one more path to awakening.
Your thoughts create a filter through which you experience and interpret the events of your life. We live in an infinite universe, each person translating what they see based upon their level of consciousness. These perceptions can vary dramatically – someone vibrating at the level of Fear or Anger creates incredible stress and anxiety while one who vibrates at the level of Willingness or Joy creates a authentic sense of peace and stability.
You can purposely shift yourself to higher levels of consciousness by choosing happiness as often as possible. Observe your thoughts and focus upon those that strengthen and encourage rather than those that undermine your ability to operate from your fullest potential.
Life is your teacher… pay attention! Messages of love, support, guidance and wisdom are all around you and when you open to them, you open to a new level of consciousness.
