I thought I’d repost part of the following blog article that came in just yesterday. It dovetails very nicely with what I wrote back in February, doesn’t it? It’s both a great confirmation, and a nice expansion, of the personal sentiments that I expressed in my post. Enjoy! And feel free to view the entire article, and other insightful, helpful information, at http://lucas2012infos.wordpress.com/
Jafree Ozwald – Enlightened Beings – How To Be Unstoppably Happy
There are many people who have spent lifetimes striving to reach their dreams and goals which they believe will one day make them happy. Yet, most find themselves addicted to the pursuit of their vision, and the fantasy of what may come, instead of actually enjoying being happy in their lives today. The truth is there are as many distractions inside us as there are on the outside of us, and they are ALL excuses that say it’s not possible to be happy right now. The secret we have discovered to becoming unstoppably happy is simply to see how happiness is not far away at all. It is always a choice readily available to you in each new moment.
When the understanding sinks in that your inner happiness is not based upon anything in the outer world, you start the journey towards being truly liberated and empowered. No matter how people react in life, you don’t have to wallow in sadness, negativity or pain. You can choose to feel it momentarily and move on into joy and appreciation because it is simply an availalbe choice! However your choose to respond to those people in your outer world results in what experience you’re accepting on your inner world, and this greatly impacts how you feel about yourself. You are always interpreting situations and events in your life, so why not choose the response that opens those doors towards feelings of expansion, serenity, appreciation and continuous jubilation!
Happiness is a FEELING that is always available to you. It can be accessed instantly whenever you remember that acceptance, appreciation and self approval is always a choice. It is possible in each moment to love yourself and accept life exactly as it is. It’s that simple! Make the decision right now that NOTHING, yes absolutely nothing, can stop you from choosing joy, appreciation and relaxation in any moment. There is nothing more powerful than having this choice. When you accept this, you’ll discover a deeper freedom hidden inside you that is continuously emanating from the very core of your being.
