Happiness is all around us. On those days that happiness is challenging to find, happiness’s close relatives, contentment and serenity, are always available.
When we cheerfully let go of the burdens of the past, we free up our greatest energies to create our best future. When we are joyfully willing to release future expectations if they begin to weigh us down or block our finest energy, then we lighten our load and fly farther and faster. The past is gone; the future is yet to come. The Present Moment is all there is and all there ever will be. Enjoy the Present Moment; treasure it, cherish it. Greet the Present Moment Fully; Greet it as a Friend. The Power of your Belief, along with Purposeful, Principled actions create your abundant future.
The greatest truths are the simplest ones, use them: In whatever state I am, therein I am resolved to be content. There is nothing that thinking does not make it so. Ships sail east, ships sail west by the same breeze that blows, it is the set of the sail and not the direction of the gale that determines the direction they go. Most folks are about as happy as they make up their mind to be. You can be sad because a rose bush has thorns or happy because thorn bushes have roses. Life turns out best for those who make the best of how things turn out. As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. Thoughts held in mind attract in kind. What you focus on expands.
Open your mind to receive your good; it can and will come in unexpected ways. You are blessed, you are a Child of the Universe. You are meant to be. Greatness resides within you if you will but claim it. Know that nothing is too good to be true; nothing is too wonderful to happen. Release your brakes and live your life fully.
As always, I share what I most want/need to learn. – Nathan S. Collier
