THE SECRET TO A GREAT LIFE

Just get happy.

That (to me) is the secret to a great life. Why? Stay with me.

There are laws governing every aspect of the universe, including human experience. They go by many names, eg...

Reaping and sowing.
Like attracts like.
Cause and effect.
The law of attraction.

The essence or commonality of these laws is, specific CAUSES are always linked to specific EFFECTS, and conversely specific EFFECTS are always linked to specific CAUSES.

What this means, in practical terms, is, you can always know, ahead of time, what a specific course of thought or action will create AND you can also look BACKWARDS, from an event or occurence, to determine its CAUSE.

The important thing to understand is: CAUSE and EFFECT are LINKED. One is NOT seperate from the OTHER. Therefore, you can CAUSE a life of happy events and outcomes by becoming someone who is consciously and happy NOW, today, in your present experience and conditions.

Now, you might respond by saying, "well, i cant be happy now because of......and/or........" And if this is you, then i believe you need to understand a fact about your feelings: They are NOT caused by events or conditions or circumstances. They are caused by your INTERPRETATION or EVALUATION or BELIEFS about them. So,...

If you're not currently feeling good about some aspect of your life (including others or yourself) it means your are not INTERPRETING, EVALUATING or BELIEVING something constructive about them.

In other words, your feelings are NOT evidence of HOW THINGS ARE. Your feelings are evidence of your beliefs ABOUT them. For example...

One person loses a job and gets upset. Another loses the same job and is happy. Why? Because one sees loss. The other sees opportunity.

Someone looks in the mirror and feels sad, Another looks in the mirror and is delighted. Why? One sees flaws, Another sees miracles.

Bottom line: You can figure out how to be happy now, about any and every aspect of your life, and being so will reap you happy conditions, experiences and outcomes.

On the same theme and with some practical additions, if I may...
May I share what has worked for me for a decade...

How does one practically become happy and see opportunity and not be concerned if they get fired?
They 'could' repeat a Buddhist saying or a Christian verse...sure, pump themselves up...yes. See how it works.

This is what I do ... I suggest to people a lot, please try this for one week:
Follow the instructions that Jesus, for one, said...Do not worry, give your burdens to
God, have no cares. TRUST.

When you do this for a week...trust in God/the Universal order
or system of creation, if that suits you better...you see how things actually do work out...this gives you
faith or chops or inner strength...
then, you do it for another week...what this does is show you you actually
DO have control of your thoughts...you see a worry/fear thought comes in, "I'm going to be late, oh no."
But, you say to your mind, "No...I know it will ALL work out perfectly."
When you see it ALWAYS does...your faith, power, confidence, thus, happiness soars!


You repeat for another week, Be anxious for nothing, Phil 4:6...

You'll see...hope this helps somebody practically apply, "How do I just 'be happy!"

There are other ways, of course. This is just one simple practice that works.

Hi MISS HEPBURN. I'm also deliberately practising the idea of 'trusting source' as in where ABRAHAM HICKS say, source always has us 'in its sights' and always feels peaceful, wonderful, glorious, happy, delighted, ect, about us.

In other words i like the idea that if i'm upset about anything, its only because i don't have sources perspective on the subject. So, lately, i use this idea to 'allow' myself to choose a better feeling, eg. peace, happiness, positive expectation, ect.

This seems to have made it easier for me to feel better, and coincidentally (there are no accidents) a couple 'big' problems, just so happened to shrink down to size, to being a peice of cake to handle.

Thanks MISS HEPBURN :)

Yes, perspective is the thing.
ACIM has helped me even MORE with that!
(A Course In Miracles).

Adyashanti said...Eliminate what is not real.
Works for me..!...since I know silly emotions are the product of the ego-mind,
the lower ego self...whatever one calls it..it is not reality.

Why do you talk down to people so, Robertj?

You seem to have the same view as British politicians - the electorate is stupid.

As twilight approaches one wonders how one should say "Are we the sheep?"

ARE we the sheep?

Are WE the sheep?

Are we THE sheep?

Are we the SHEEP?

Secret to a great life?
Like many questions about any number of potential things.
My answer would vary depending on what day,what year,and what decade
it was in my life when I gave an answer.
For today I would say my answer would be.
I seem to be drawing a blank babe.

Totally agree OP, if I would add one thing it is to eliminate all fear or anxiety.
A life without fear or anxiety would be incredible.

Is it not so that who you are today, where you are today and how you are today is simply the total sum of all the above things coming together.?

There are no excuses.

And, if you are not happy with your 'lot', - change it. If you can't change that which is outside yourself - change yourself inside.
