Freedom, is having nothing to lose; and everything to gain…
Your now influences your future. Yet, your future also influences your now and your past. Your possibilities are limitless…
Life is about evolving. Evolving is about transformation and change. Sometimes life gives you no option but to evolve. Sometimes, you’re brave enough, faithful enough, ‘crazy enough’, wise enough and courageous enough to choose evolution and transformation on your own. When you do, you venture out from your pristine comfort-zone, into the vast unknown. Lots may be uncertain and unfamiliar. What is always, assuredly, constant though – is Divine Guidance. Trust It. Flow with It. Be happy in It. It will have you “live” more authentically, more fully, more magically and more holistically wholesomely, than staying in a predictable, routine, ‘safe’ comfort-zone ever would. …And then, get familiar with It, ‘cos It’s going to call out to you again, and again, and again…
Make right NOW the best time of your life, in every now moment.
Strive, Or Realize?
Strive, Or Realize?
It’s Your Choice.
Feel It, Be It…
When you feel it, being it is natural.
When you sprout wings, it becomes your very nature to continually soar ever-higher, ever-freer and ever-expansively…
Your Guaranteed Way Of Harnessing Different Results, Is Simply By Thinking, Feeling, Being And Doing Differently.
STOP, to BE…
Start to STOP.
STOP, to BE.
Explore Beyond The Known…
Be eager about the unknown…
Anticipate the wondrous places it leads you to!
THERE’S WORLDS TO EXPLORE BEYOND THE “KNOWN”…
Look forward… Your future is waiting to meet you.
When things seem worst, it’s also simultaneously the cusp and summoning of all possibilities…
Change not only during “lockdown”, while waiting to rush back to your “normal”.
Change, rather, your everyday lifestyle, from this point forward.
Life In Transition…
Every moment is a transition into the next. The many moments of Life are transitory. The many moments leading up to, and the singular moment of ‘death’ are transitory.
Recognize and be aware of the Well-Being which is ever-present. Live every moment FOR LIFE – in faith, joy, appreciation, love, gratitude…
Play Nice Together:
Regardless of where you may be located geographically, or what you may be facing in your specific context, why not choose love, unity and global cooperation?
The human condition is common to you, to me, to all. Everyone smiles, everyone laughs, everyone cries, everyone hurts, everyone hopes, everyone dreams…
Let’s choose to see not the ‘other’, but One. Let’s choose to love as One, rather than to choose suffering and illusory ‘national’ or other separation. No policy or procedures required!
In a world where Divinity reigns, unity is a way of life.
🌀💚❤️Let’s play nice together.🌀💚❤️
All Is Divine Order:
Yes, it is🌀💕💚🌀

Life’s An Echo…
If life were to give back to you exactly what you gave out…
What would you choose to think, say, feel, do…?
Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Future!
All it takes to change your future, is to think a different thought! You, dear one, are the primary creator of your life! By your very thoughts, feelings and desires, you’re in a constant process of co-creation with Creation itself and with the Creator of All That Is.
A changed future is only a different thought away…
What do you choose to think?💕🌀
INTEGRITY, SIMPLICITY, PURPOSE, FUNCTIONALITY, SUSTAINABILITY:
Any project worth undertaking has these elements at its core.
Make Love…With Life:
All of life is love. Make love, in every moment, with everything. ❤️💚
Be in love, with Life…with all.
Love is a state of being…If you view love as something to be directed at only a lover/friend/family member/pet, etc. – you’re missing the true essence of love.💚❤️
You’re Always Granted The Essence Of Your Deepest Desires:
Be assured that you’re always, most definitely, granted the essence of your deepest-felt-desires!
The Divine is listening…
Ask. Believe. Receive. Appreciate.❤️💚💙💜
Blessed With The Best:
The BEST exists in everything… Yes, even in the seemingly worst.
When you’re someone who makes the best of anything and everything, you’re a creator of your own destiny.
Be blessed with the best!
Dance And Thrive With Each Other:
Your feelings, just like your thoughts, are a choice. You wield power over them, by your chosen perspectives, attention and attitudes.
Complement, co-create, evolve, grow, transform, support, play, dance and thrive together/with each other; or compete with and engage in mind games and power struggles against each other, resultantly dwelling in insecurities due to misaligned perceptions…
It’s simply and solely a matter of what you choose and what you focus upon.
If you feel emasculated, simply by me being me, and by you being you… You have a choice: 1) Step up, empower yourself; or 2) Step out, enjoy yourself.
GOD BLESS THE RAINDROPS…
I feel raindrops…
Raindrops feel me…
God bless the raindrops!
God bless me!
You, me, the rain, the stars, the moon, the sun, the trees, the seas, the breeze, the birds, the fish, the frogs, the moody geese… We are all One… Made of the same energy, emerged from One Consciousness.
Revel, sometimes, in appreciation and the joy of being kissed by the raindrops, rather than always bolting toward sheltered protection (even though we remain so very appreciative of and thankful for the blessings of comfy sturdy homes, wholesome meals, piped water for hot refreshing showers, electricity, etc.)
…What if… The rain feels you, as much as you feel the rain? ☺️
Feel the blessings of your Divine connectedness with All That Is!
It Is What You Make Of It:
All anything ever is, is what you make of it…
Your choices of attributed meanings…
Make it work for your best and for your highest well-being!!!
God: My Life-Partner
Am I looking for marriage? Nope.
Am I looking for authentic connection? Yip, definitely!
What happens if I don’t find authentic connection with a man? I still win! I continue happily, blessedly walking my path with God as my Life-Partner, as I’ve always done…
(Do I think that God has authentic Divine connection with a man, in store for me? Yes, for sure!😉)
Let the basis be true connection, first and foremost, and then let marriage follow, if so be it. Then too, let it be rather a “celebration and declaration of the Sacred Union of togetherness, based upon freedom and mutual evolution”, rather than a “contract of stagnant obligations”.
A relationship-basis on a primary want/need for the ‘idea’ of “marriage”, as opposed to a genuine sacred spiritual foundation of heart-mind-body-soul-connection, just isn’t a turn-on for me 💕🌀💚
Blessed to be working with the most amazing, wondrous, beautiful people!
And SO appreciative too!
Find and live your joys in as many ways and in as many moments as you can! Beauty, grace and wonder abounds!
Your power is in your clarity!
Re-Align With Your Highest Value-Adding Priorities:
Live your best life.
Assess and re-align with your highest value-adding priorities.
Leading-Edge Of Thought, Feeling and Creation:
Learning from the brilliant, wondrous, magical, free-spirited minds and hearts of kids is some of the most terrific education around!
Observe, engage, celebrate, honor and take some lessons from these little beings who are on the leading-edge of thought, feeling and creation…
Diversity, Authenticity, Freedom…
Change yourself for nobody but yourself.
Change nobody for yourself.
Diversity, authenticity and freedom are Divine Gifts to be honored.
If I’m no longer around, know u’re loved. If I’m always around, know u’re loved. If u never hear from me again, know u’re loved. If u hear from me to no end, know u’re loved. If u hate me, know u’re loved. If u love me, know u’re loved.🌀🐋
Take Action From A Point Of Happiness:
Move on/do something new/make changes when you’re at your happiest. This will ensure that you’re forever growing toward your Light, not running from darkness.
EVERYTHING’S OK…NOW, ALWAYS!
I thought it would be nice to have a man tell me, “Everything’s gona be ok”…Then I felt my wise-old-all-knowing-perfectly-balanced inner-being say to me: “Aaah, sweetness! Everything’s ok…Now, Always!”
Remember that you are a whole, complete being. You have all necessary resources within yourself to live a loving, happy, supported, appreciative, rest-assured, re-assured, Divinely guided, blessed life.
All Is Well. Always. Forevermore…
DIRECT CONNECTION WITH THE DIVINE:
You already have access to your most intimate relationship with the Divine, within you. The more often you connect with your inner being, the more you flow with the abundant, eternal well-being of All-That-Is.
Love, nurture and frolic with this most significant primary relationship in your life!
A person of the greatest simplicity may also often be a person of the finest quality.
A simple way of life and being in the world often flows in synchronized harmony with a sophisticated mind and intuition.
The greatest depths, insights and inspirations may be discovered and experienced in, from and with pure, authentic simplicity.
Should one underestimate the choice of simplicity to be indicative of shallowness / insignificance, (s)he may be in for a magnificent surprise☺️💜💚💙💕💛❤️🧡🦋🌞
Blessed And Appreciative…
Embrace all of the blessings and great experiences in your life. Focus on, and appreciate, what feels exhilarating to you. It can only get better…and better✨
Life Is As Sweetly Indulgent As You Allow It To Be:
Wellbeing and Divine All-That-Is is forever flowing to you. Whether you choose to see, feel, allow, experience and enjoy it, is your choice. Together with the Divine, you are a powerful co-creator of your life.
Inhale the intoxicating wellness of life. Dance to the ecstatic rhythm of the Universal beat. Flow in wild abandon with Divinity’s vibrant pulse. Saturate on Love’s transformational potion. Frolic with the magic of just ‘being’. Savor the sweet bliss of fulfillment’s joy. Be a creator for the sacred union of consciousness with Consciousness itself! Bow in appreciation of abundant blessings. And forever be, High…On Life!✨
CHOOSE TO LOOK TO THE GOOD:
Choose to look to the good. Anything that you choose to focus upon, will increase in momentum, until it comes in waves…
FEEL AMAZING, LIVE AMAZING:
The thoughts and feelings that you have the FREEDOM TO CHOOSE are a precursor for your life experiences. Your life experiences should not control your thoughts and feelings. Be an active role-player in your life! Feel amazing to live an amazing life.☺️
Trust The Contrast
Yes, it would indeed be wonderful if life were permanently rosy, beautiful and peaceful, wouldn’t it? It would be perfection indeed if things always went the way you wanted and desired, if you instantaneously got what you wanted, if you everlastingly floated on fluffy white clouds upon a blue sky… Right?
Yet, think about it for but a moment: if all were indeed exactly as you wanted, all of the time, how then would you be able to differentiate what it is that you like, from that which you dislike / like to a lesser extent?
You wouldn’t know the difference, would you? And in not having the contrasting experiences of that which you dislike, you also then wouldn’t fully be able to explore, appreciate and embrace the joy in the experiences of that which you do desire… Correct?
The less desired / undesirable parts of your life don’t have to be all doom and gloom, dear one. Those situations and experiences are there to point you onward, inward and upward toward what it is that you actually do desire.
Once you learn to use your every less-than-desirable instance to your benefit, by identifying from it that which your heart and spirit calls you to, you know you’re well on your way to living your best life.
There’s but a reason and a purpose to all under the sun – and in the midst of every seeming thunderstorm too.
Trust the contrast, dear one. Trust your self. Be in joy and in peace always. All is working out, always.
Align With Love And Joy To Live Your Purpose
Living your best life is simpler, and way more fun, than you may imagine. By aligning with the love and joy which is already within you, you can be assured that all of your desires will naturally and effortlessly flow to you…
The greater your awareness of, and gratitude for, the love and joy in your life – the more you attract energies of similar frequencies into your life. These ‘energies’ may be people, experiences, things, or even just more enhanced feelings of alignment and peace.
Your purpose is love and happiness – to be it, to experience it, to share it. So anytime you do anything to attune yourself with feelings of love and happiness – trust and know that you’re uplifting not only yourself, but also countless others and consciousness as a whole.
By living your life from a space and a place of joy and love, you’re not only gifting yourself with precious treasures, but you’re also simultaneously engaging in selfless service to humanity.
Yes, selfless service… If, perhaps, you hold a belief that feeling happiness and love is ‘selfish’ or that for some reason you’re ‘undeserving’, then choose in this moment to change that restrictive conditioned belief and replace it with a more wholesome belief – you were created to live a beautiful, joyous, love-filled life. This is your purpose, first and foremost.
When you’re in love and joy yourself, you automatically share it with others and it’s also infused into everything you do. The more you come into alignment with who you genuinely are – love and joy – the more in-tune you will grow with your other purposes and passions in life.
And the more you’re in alignment, the more you shine your light on others’ – even if simply by being an example of authenticity.
So become aware of, feel and express love and joy!
… And then simply do more of it, over and over again – to deeper and expanded levels!
And in this, know that you’re on purpose…

Being True To You, Is Honoring Divinity
There’s nothing more or nothing less for you to do, other than being true to the highest and the best which is already vibrantly alive and thriving within you.
Relax, trust and have faith in the knowledge that Source is pleased and ecstatic when you live your life in being aware of, listening to, and implementing the deepest truest parts of yourself. For, your essence, is Essence itself.
Allowing yourself to flow in Divine Guidance and Grace is a blessing relished in gratitude and joy. Creator and creation co-exist and dance together in a most intricate, beautiful, intimate, gentle yet powerful rhythmic relationship.
Honor your consciousness, and Consciousness itself is venerated and celebrated!

You’re A Light, Even When Shadows Fall
By your very nature, a child of the Creator, you’re a light. Life has moments and times of darkness and shadows, yet this doesn’t alter your inherent nature of purity and luminescence.
You’ve been birthed from the supreme Light of the Divine. Regardless of what you or another does, or regardless of what you may experience, the genuine permanent nature of your being is radiance.
Shadows pass. And by their very nature, they require light to enable them to even be cast in the first instance.
Think, for instance, of a lunar eclipse – the earth may cast its shadow, yet it’s but only temporary. And behind the shadow, the moon continues to glow as brightly and as iridescently as ever. In fact, both the earth and the moon are in ultimate perfect harmony, each on their own, as well as with one another.
You are perfection exactly as and where you are. Remember this in every moment. Glow, as you’ve been created to glow. It’s only by your own thoughts and feelings that you can feel any less.
Your power, your freedom is in your choices. You’re an integral, amazing part of the Celestial Dance of Life.
Choose in wisdom, living the brightest you. You’re glorious!

You’re Perfectly Where You’re Supposed To Be
All is well, dear one. You’re doing great. You’re on your path. If perhaps you’re not precisely where you envisaged yourself being – trust that you’re still perfectly where you’re supposed to be.
Love being where you are.
Appreciate yourself for exactly where you are.
Play and have fun, where you are!
You’ve come a long way, indeed.
You’re amazingly phenomenally on track in the Bigger Scheme of Divinity’s Plan.
Relax. Breathe. Dance free.
Trust that you will eternally continue moving effortlessly forward on your wondrous life journey…

Choosing Your Feelings Is Your Power
You choose your emotions – in every moment. Regardless of what may be going on in your life or what you may be facing, know that the way you choose to feel about any situation whatsoever comes down to you.
Nobody and nothing holds more power, sway or influence in determining your emotions than you yourself do.
Seize this blessing and gift as your opportunity – either to continue feeling the way you do, or to change the way you feel.
Your emotions are your guide – they indicate to you when you’re in-tune with your highest self, or when you may need to come back into your place of authenticity.
They are your strength. You’re not ever at the mercy of your emotions. Neither do your emotions control your life.
You command your emotions.
And as you command, so you attract. When you choose to rise above a situation / feeling, forever reaching higher toward a better feeling, know and trust that you’re well on your way to the highest and best for yourself.
Fulfillment, love, trust, freedom, peace, faith, inspiration, joy… these are eternally there – waiting for you to take a hold of… to let into the very fibre of your being and life.
Why choose otherwise, when you hold the power to choose the best feelings for yourself in each and every moment!

You’re Your Wisest Guide
Trust yourself, dear one. Travel within to your core. Therein lies all answers and solutions to everything.
You’ve been created magnificent by an Omniscient Being. Just as your children are made of your genes / you’re born from the genes of your parents, so too do you carry within your very self the energy of your Divine Creator.
You’re wiser than you give yourself credit for. Become increasingly aware of who you really are – a remarkable being, pulsating Divine Source energy.
All you seek from the Divine, you already have within you. Trust yourself. Love yourself. Allow and accept the best for yourself.
Have fun and be in joy, as you allow the Divine to flow within you, and from you, forever Guiding you through your very own inspired thoughts, dreams, feelings, prayers, wishes, visions, invocations…
Be with you. You’re enchantingly wise.

Set Your Default to ‘Happy’
Remember that regardless of what may be going on in your life, you always have the freedom and power to actively choose how you feel.
Grow and train yourself into a habit of feeling peace, contentment and happiness. This will ensure that even and especially in tougher, trying times, it will be easy and automatic for you to gravitate toward happiness.
Sometimes when you experience equilibrium in your feelings, you may find it easier to move toward less-than-affirming emotions such as worry or anxiety. A reason for this is that you crave feeling something.
Have you considered, however, why it may be more effortless for you to sway toward a feeling of emptiness rather than fulfillment, or a feeling of anxiousness rather than trust, for instance?
Yes, it’s simply an outcome of the way you’ve trained your mind.
Know that it’s just as simple for you to re-train your mind, to suite and serve your own purposes and intentions.
Given a choice – and it indeed is given –choose affirming feelings of wellbeing, vitality, peace, trust, freedom, joy… Make it your go-to response and behavior.
It’s about time you set your default to happiness, isn’t it?!

Surrender, Fly Free To Succeed
Control may be a positive quality when it comes to discipline, responsibility, focus and accountability, for instance. It may oftentimes be the fuel behind your perseverance and successes in life. Yet, have you ever noticed the difference in the quality of your feelings between achieving a goal:
As opposed to:
• When you’ve been in an anxiety-filled, rigid and controlling state and space?
Does there seem to be a distinct difference in the quality of each?
•Controlling Your Way To Success:
How does aiming to be in control all of the time, make you feel? Does it relax you? Does it make you feel like you’re conquering the world in an ordered, prepared and sequential way?
Does it stress you out? Does it leave you feeling like you’re living on-edge?
A fact of life is that we cannot control everything. It’s in the nature of things to be changing.
As much as one may succeed at controlling a very large portion of his / her life, one still cannot predict absolutely everything. A reasonably large portion of life is unknown – dependent upon various factors aside from oneself.
What happens then, when you encounter something that’s beyond your control? How do you feel? How do you react? Do you clamor to make sense of things and to restore ‘order’ and ‘control’ as you know it? Or, are you able to easily accept, adapt and go with the flow?
•Surrendering Your Way To Success:
There’s great strength and power in intentionally choosing to surrender. It calls for deep trust – in yourself, in the Universe.
Surrender is one of the most amazing gifts you will ever bestow on yourself.
Allowing you to be in the moment, to live fully and wholly, and to experience life from a space and state of freedom, joy and relief – surrender is being at one with Divine Grace.
Living from a place of surrender will ensure that you always succeed – for from such a place of trust and faith, all is and always will be well. You know, for a fact, that you will always be Divinely Guided.
As an added bonus, you – in wisdom – allow yourself the opportunity to live your life in a continual state of ease and bliss, minus having to be perfect or to have all be perfect. Thriving from a feeling-space of ease and bliss will surely attract greater quantities and qualities of the same to you, as you gently perfect the art of surrendering…

Love Yourself, More, Always
When’s a good time to love you? How often do you shower yourself with just as much love as you do your dearly beloved ones? When is it okay, ‘good’ or even ‘acceptable’ to love yourself truly, deeply, genuinely, abundantly?
… Now. In every moment. Always. Your greatest, deepest and most constant love lives and thrives within you. As much as your love is for sharing, caring and healing of others’, your love is also one of your greatest, simplest gifts to you.
Treasure this Love of Divine Source energy which sings, dances and celebrates Life within your soul, within every molecule and cell of your being.
This phenomenal support, strength and caring is permanently with you, for you – and shall remain with you in every moment, through eternity.
In times of feeling lost, alone or not understood, your spirit calls out to you more than ever for you to be there for you – to reach for your Higher Self, your Spirit Self.
Regardless of what may be going on in your life – trust, know and rest assured that love-essence is your blessing, your grace.
Love yourself, more, always…

How often do you find yourself looking to others for opinions, feedback, reassurance, or even approval on your life? Does it sometimes even occur indirectly when you don’t necessarily ask directly – such as by looking for and noting body-language, eye-contact and other reactionary clues as indicators of how you may have been received / perceived? This is perfectly okay and is a normal part of human relationship interactions. However, do you perhaps place more value and trust in what another thinks of you, than you do in yourself? Your Most Valuable Feedback Mechanism is you.
• The Value of Your Source-Inspired Thoughts:
Your first and foremost source of feedback regarding anything in your life is you, yourself.
As an extension of infinite Source energy, you hold within your being an endless vastness of knowledge, insight, solutions, answers and inspiration. The magnificence of the resources in your personal domain is phenomenal.
Quieting your mind and relaxing your body while traveling within in openness and receptivity allows you, through your Higher Self, to access thoughts aligned to Infinite Divine Intelligence.
Together with your feelings / intuition, the observations and understandings you receive through your quieted mind is one of your most credible sources of resolution, breakthrough, momentum and advancement.
•The Value of Your Feelings:
Regardless of what anyone may have told you, regardless of what you may have heard, regardless of how you may have been judged, regardless of how you may judge yourself – know that your feelings are a gift.
There is no clearer or more precise indicator of your wellbeing than the feedback you receive from your feelings.
Whenever you feel something, particularly strongly so, your Higher Self is communicating with you on a most intimate level. Give attention to your feelings like you would to an intriguing lover.
Whether you’re being true to yourself or not comes through by the way you feel. Whether you’re loving yourself / valuing yourself / honoring yourself as you rightly should be or not, is indicated by your feelings.
When you’re in alignment with your true self, you experience feelings of happiness, peace and calm. Such a feeling-state is natural and is divinely intended. Feelings of unease, discomfort, sadness, etc. are simply indicators that you may not be honoring your true self.
In awareness of your feelings, you have the option to consciously examine the cause(s) of the way you feel. This allows you to actively make choices geared toward raising your vibration to your natural state of peace, calm and bliss.
In increasingly honoring your thoughts and feelings from a level of your true, Higher Self, your trust in yourself will evolve to a level of surpassing your need for placing the opinions of any other above yourself.
Trusting in yourself is simply placing trust and faith in a Divine Super-Consciousness, which you verily are an integral part of.
HappyWise: Sharmilla 02/06/2018
Ups and downs, highs and lows, ‘good’ and ‘bad’, ‘rights’ and ‘wrongs’ – all comprise some of the amazing richness of life. You may love for your experiences to be solely one-sided, skewed toward the wonderful and the joyous, yes. Yet, how then would you know what’s ‘wonderful’ and what’s ‘joyous’ unless you’ve also experienced its opposite? Trust and rest in the knowledge that there’s a place and a purpose in your life for the lows, just as much as for the highs.
•Flowing With The Contrasts:
Contrast is a natural and a vital part of the human experience. It allows you to identify and to sort that which you like from that which you don’t. It also provides you an opportunity for experiencing and living your life in all of it’s vibrant diversity.
Flowing with, rather than resisting, the assorted realities of life, will ensure that you walk your path gracefully and purposefully.
Remember that ‘experiencing’ doesn’t entail or necessitate becoming ‘stuck’ or embroiled in a situation or experience. It simply means being aware of, acknowledging, doing what needs to be done if so required, and moving along… Flowing…
The contrast of the ‘goods’ from the ‘not-so-goods’ or downright painful and challenging, affords you the freedom not only for identifying your preferences, but also for then choosing to hone your attention and focus upon your own favored choices.
So, in any experience, it is primarily by your own perceptions, outlooks, focus of attention, decisions and choices that your life is shaped.
Your choices and focal-points of awareness and attention become your magnets of attraction for drawing you toward your future experiences; and similarly for drawing your future experiences toward you.

Your Spirit Is Invincible
You’re going to be okay. Now. Tomorrow. Five days from now. Weeks, months, years from now. You verily are okay. Always. Forever. Regardless of what may be / will be going on in your life.
You always have been okay. In the past, when you thought you weren’t okay…. You came through, didn’t you? The beautiful you has been gently, lovingly and preciously held and Guided by a Divine force in every moment.
Your body, your mind, your emotions – they’re all fundamental and significantly glorious parts of you. It’s what makes you so wholly wonderfully, beautifully, magnificently human.
Yet, who / what do you think the ‘you’ actually is? For instance, when you say, “My body”, or “My mind”, or “I feel so-and-so”? Who is the ‘my’, who is the ‘I’?
When you feel less-than-perfect in your body, in your thoughts, in your feelings – what / which part of you / who is actually perceiving all of this information?
It’s the perfect you, the intangible you, the ‘you’ that is spirit in essence, the you that knows that All Is Well and always will be well, the you that’s communicating to you that by feeling illness, negativity or ‘less-than-perfection’, you’re merely out of alignment / balance with the natural health, joy, vibrancy and peace that you in essence are; the you that can never be destroyed regardless of external circumstances or bodily / mental / emotional imbalance or illness.
You’re in spirit an invincible you. A you that allows every cell in your body to function brilliantly superbly, without you having to do a thing. The you that’s always reaching to greater heights. The you who desires for better, brighter, happier simply because at your core you know that you deserve the highest and the best, and that all truly is available to you.
You’re in spirit all-peaceful, all-knowing, all-loved, all-loving, invincible – beyond hurt, pain, confusion, chaos, illness or physical death.
The you in spirit is verily an integral, unconquerable, eternal part of the Great Spirit of the Universe.

When You’re Put Down, Rise Up and Beyond!
Sometimes, not everyone in life supports you. Sometimes the one(s) you think ‘should’ understand you the most may be the very one(s) who seemingly wage battle against you. It’s not always easy to feel good about yourself when the one(s) you care for the most and hold dearest to your heart, put you down. Yet, it’s up to you whether you allow your spirit to be crushed – wallowing in sadness, self-pity and low esteem; or whether you gloriously rise up – meeting your true God-graced self in joyous acceptance and living your life authentic to your vision, calling and expression!
• Choosing to Stay Down:
Consider for a moment that you have no genuine idea of the true reason(s) which contributed to another suppressing you / mocking you / patronizing you. It could have very little to do with you.
Perhaps you being true to yourself triggered a state of unease / discomfort in the other person based on something completely unrelated to you. Or perhaps it brought up feelings of fear or insecurity in the other.
Whatever the reason, know that it’s always your choice whether you choose to stay where another ‘puts you’; or whether you choose to rise up in making a decision on your own path of forward and upward momentum. How about choosing to believe in yourself and supporting yourself in living your best, highest and happiest life?
• Choosing to Rise Up and Beyond!
Think about it for a moment – do you truly believe that the person who put you down was in their best, most aligned state when they minimized you? Or could they perhaps have been dealing with their own feelings – stress, insecurity, guilt, fear…?
Would a person in true peace, alignment and contentment with themselves derogate another? Especially if the person was a loved-one simply living their life in respect and consideration for all? … Most probably not.
Is it not a freeing thought to believe that each person is doing the best that (s)he is able to with the resources they have available, at any specific time, and in any particular situation?
So, how about simply letting go of the criticisms?
Rise up and BE! You have a God-Ordained purpose. The sooner you realize that remaining in a conflicted space due to the actions of another toward you is not worth it, the quicker you can get on with living and expressing your true Divine purpose.
Your Divine purpose beckons you in every moment to rising over, above and beyond any defeat; toward victory, peace, happiness, expression and love.
HappyWise: Sharmilla 07/04/2018
All is in Order. Perfect Order. Flowing with the current in trust, faith and relaxation is possibly one of the kindest, most loving things you can do for yourself. This means flowing always toward your greatest wellbeing and joy, regardless of the circumstances around you / the issues you may be facing. It means finding the best in every situation and flowing with the stream of those thoughts, ideas, feelings and actions that carry you toward the light and the blessings.
• All is in Perfect Order:
Think about it for a moment… How much that happens is out of your control – in your own life, in society, in the world? Lots, right? And yet how much of your life has worked out quite amazingly well for you, notwithstanding all that’s happened and may be happening, would you say?
So long as you continue to choose your thoughts for your highest wellbeing and guide yourself constantly toward reaching for feelings of happiness and peace, all will always be well.
• Finding the Best in Every Situation:
Life is change. One of the constants is your inherent value as a human being.
Whatever may be going on, the potential for its opposite is also there. Duality is a natural part of life.
In every situation which you find challenging, there’s always a solution. It will come to you easiest when you bring into your awareness the possibility of a solution existing. Then simply relax in trust and faith, allowing yourself to be open to receiving.
Life is movement. Going with the flow of the movement is natural, easier and uses immensely less energy than pushing against the flow.
Know that you’re Guided always by Source / God / the Universe. Trust in the flow. Glide along your path in lightness and happiness of being…
Opinions and judgments of others’ will always be there. Be they communicated to you directly or indirectly, by a look or an expression, or even by way of you being the subject of some type of formal ‘assessment’, know that these are the perceptions of another human being. Who, after-all, has the authority to decide whether something is ‘acceptable’ / ‘valuable’ / ‘favorable’ / ‘good’ / ‘nice’, ‘of worth’ or not? Not only is this ever-changing and subjective, but it’s also time and context-dependent.
• Opinions & Judgements of Others:
Every individual sees the same thing differently. Every individual feels differently about a specific thing. Every individual takes a different message from a common message communicated.
The interpretation and experience of each person varies. People filter and interpret information based upon their own experiences, beliefs, values, wants, desires and needs.
Therefore, it only makes sense that people will have different opinions of you / a thing. A person’s judgement of something / you is not solely about you, it’s also about the person doing the judging and what’s going on in his / her world.
So, smile and be happy regardless of what another thinks of you / how another views you / the manner in which a person chooses to interpret your communications or actions.
Know in your awareness that each person’s reality is different! And therefore it’s okay for a person to feel toward you the way they do / to think of you the way they do / to take from your message / action precisely what they do.
• Security in Yourself:
Nobody knows you as profoundly as you yourself do. (And if you don’t know yourself as well as you should, then you open yourself up to others’ telling you who you are – which is possibly who they would like you to be).
Your life is unique, based upon your own experiences, choices, values, beliefs, desires and dreams.
Once you know exactly who you are, you’re able to smile and settle into knowing that you’re the ultimate judge in your life, regardless of any other opinion / judgement. There is great power there.
The key is being true to your authentic self. And in being true to your authentic self, you value yourself for all that you are; you love yourself for all that you are; you take joy and pleasure in being, sharing and expressing all that you magnificently are!
It’s a great time to start upgrading your opinion of yourself and passing wholesome, loving, kind, forgiving judgments of yourself, is it not?
Know, trust and rest assured in the knowledge that no matter what may be going on in your life at this time, all is well. All is in Divine Order. You’re at this space and place in your life in this very moment not by coincidence, accident or mistake, but for a reason. Feel exactly as you need to feel, do exactly what you need to do, change whatever you desire to change. If needs be, simply take a moment to relax, to breathe in life and to absorb the lull of the unknown, of the seeming ‘imperfections’ and of non-action, while you re-calibrate to the readiness and to the excitement of swinging back into your groove again.
• All Answers Are Within You:
Confusion, uncertainty and doubt are a part of life; they seem to come when you least expect them. You may not be able to banish them completely, yet it’s most certainly within your power and choice to minimize them and any effects they may have upon you.
In your darkest, most trying times, do you more often than not look to another human being for answers? Either for validation of your own thoughts and feelings, or for new direction and input?
Looking to another for guidance and for different varied perspectives may be invaluable when integrated into your decision-making process. Your decisions, however, are ultimately yours. You have within yourself all of the resources and all of God’s Guiding Light that you need in order to make decisions of wisdom.
Listen to yourself, even more than you listen to any other. Trust yourself, even more than you trust any other. Maintain flexibility – with yourself, with situations. Re-visit and / revise anything you may need to. All of life is a learning-curve of growth and evolution.
Smile, be easy on yourself, be your greatest comforter and supporter in life. All is perfect even in imperfection.
• All is Perfection:
Freedom, joy, love, acceptance and light abounds in perfect imperfection! You will find that there’s nothing quite as liberating and as ‘human’ as embracing the messiness in life, in yourself and in others. It’s a space that magnificence springs forth from.
Flow with it, love it, maintain it as is, or change / re-configure it – it’s your opportunity to do with it whatever you wish.
Just as your values and beliefs may not be stagnant throughout life or in all contexts, so too that which seems ‘imperfect’ today may very well lead to and result in the most beautiful amazing perfection you discover in your tomorrow…
And it is then that you’ll find that all indeed is well, just as is.
Freedom and Joy is Yours
At your core, you’re free. The essence of who you are is a spirit of joy and freedom. So, freedom is already a part of you, just like joy is. There’s no need to strive for it, search for it, or work toward it. All you have to do is recognize its presence, allow it to be as significant a part of your life as you desire, and enjoy it.
What are you truly? Are you your career, or your relationship-status? Perhaps a mum, a dad, a sibling, a manager, an employee, a sports(wo)man, a politician, a student, a leader, a man, a woman? Yes, you may be one or more of these; however, minus the labels you’re simply a human being.
In your pure human state, before the labels of what you do, how you’re defined, or what you’ve accumulated through your life, you’re simply a human being. A spirit with a body, doing your best to thrive in a human-conditioned experience.
And in your core immaculate human state, you’re a light free being of love and bliss. You may sometimes tend to think that just as you’ve had to acquire and accrue all in your life, that you also have to endeavor toward freedom or joy.
Yet the absolute glorious beauty is that freedom and joy are both already yours. It’s what was there at the very beginning; it’s what will always remain once all the layers of identity have been peeled away.
Your amazing power lies in being aware of, recognizing and embracing the constant eternal availability of this flexibility and liberty in your life. Bring it into your awareness, truly feel it, and live it in any situation and experience your desire. It’s simply your choice.
Freedom of choice is yours. It is you who ultimately determines what you want to make of a situation. You choose how to respond and proceed from any given point.
Your feelings are actually within your control. They arise with your thoughts. Steer and guide your thoughts in a favorable direction in any situation, and you simultaneously successfully shift your emotions.
Your natural state is joy, so you don’t have to chase after it. It’s already with you, within you.
Let go of the worry, the doubt, the anxiety – you will find that all that remains is peace, calm, love and happiness. Flow with its beauty, dance with its energy, laugh with its frivolity – for as long as you fancy.
Maneuver Your Attention to Maximize Your Intention
Identify that which you desire / which you hope to achieve. Align your thoughts, feelings and attention to having that / those thing(s). Allow all things that do not match the state you desire to drift past your awareness. Focus on the joy and fulfilment of accomplishing the outcomes you desire. You, being naturally one with the Universal Creator, are the primary creator in your life.
Your intention is your purpose, your seed, your starting-point, the core of your desire.
Craft your intention. Personalize it. Be sure that it’s what you really want and that it’s what will serve your best overall interests.
Most significantly, allow and encourage yourself to feel the fulfilment, the happiness, the joy, the exhilaration, the peace and the comfort of having your intention / purpose achieved, even while it’s still germinating.
Nourish your intention and purpose with all of the care and love it needs to flourish, blossom, bloom and thrive.
A plant requires adequate water, sunlight and fertile soil to grow healthily and beautifully. Feed your awareness, your mind, your body and your emotions only with those things that progress your outcome.
Ignore / eliminate those things (thoughts, feelings, doubts, judgements, perceptions) that don’t positively contribute toward the achievement of your outcome. Snip away distractions that may move you out of alignment with your purpose.
Act with your energy and your attention directed and focused on trust, faith and belief in the fulfilment of your desire and the achievement of your purpose.
Having aligned your thoughts, feelings, awareness, focus and actions with your desired purpose and intent, relax into welcoming wondrous creations into your life. You’re a powerful creator in your life.
Aaaah, to be happy and free… The lightness and joy of just ‘being’ – a state available to you in every moment. Regardless of where you are, who you’re with, who and what your commitments and responsibilities are toward, how you may be perceived or judged by another, where you’ve come from or what you’ve done, it is you who is ultimately in control of your each and every moment. By the choices of your thoughts, your points of focus and your responses to situations, circumstances and experiences beyond your control, you hold within yourself the power of your freedom.
Your thoughts… oh, the immensity and the elation of the creative power which lies therein! Yes, by your very thoughts you mold your world. Focus on uplifting, happy thoughts in any circumstance, and you naturally set the scene for the unfoldment of your wellbeing. If things could go wrong, they could also go right!
Allow your thoughts to flow in the direction of your inspiration, and experience yourself gravitate toward exhilaration and fulfilment. Similarly, allow any less-than-satisfying thoughts to drift over, across and past your mind… freely, effortlessly…
Your choices now and in every moment in where you choose to take your mind, lays the foundation for determining the direction of your future and the path you walk forward. The selection of freedom over imprisonment is yours to embrace; choose wisely.
Your Points of Focus:
Blessings abound. You have total and complete freedom of choice in terms of where you place your attention and what you choose to focus upon.
Remember, what you dedicate your energy toward is what and where your life will move toward. Focusing upon the blessings, opportunities, joys and wholesomeness in any situation will ensure that you’re consistently moving along your highest life-path.
Make the best of the rest, permitting yourself a growth of freedom and a freedom of growth.
Your Responses to Situations, Circumstances and Experiences:
Be a victor over the situations, circumstances and experiences you find yourself within. Take the time you need (even, and perhaps especially, when you feel driven to act immediately).
Respond with action after consideration where possible, having guided your thoughts and points of focus intentionally and in awareness for your greatest good.
Trust that there is perfection to be found in even the most challenging of times. All is in Order. Float free in your knowingness and trust in the Greater Plan of Life.
‘Now’ Is Your Best Time
How often do you find yourself putting-off something that you’d love to do / procrastinating, simply ‘cos a voice in your head whispers to you that all is not yet ideal and that you should wait? Clear priorities and responsible decision-making are a great way to go indeed; so too, there’s wisdom in solidly assessing any situation. Yet, all being situation and context-dependent of course, have you ever considered that ‘now’ may actually be your best time?!
There’s Perfection in Your Now
This moment is your most valuable time. The past is done, the future is variable, now is the time most in your power. Accept your now, maximizing it for your wellbeing and happiness – even if this means contentedly accepting things which are beyond your control. Remember, the sh*t is not going to last for forever. By finding your peace in the now, you set the scene for the unfoldment of your future moments…and so it goes.
There’s fragments of perfection in your now, regardless of what may be going on. Embrace feeling good in the moment, no matter how ‘small’ or large a blessing you may have been granted. Absorbing and appreciating the feeling of an invigorating shower, or the fresh scent of rains upon the earth, or the happy sound of crickets chirping, or the free-flow of energy after a good workout – all magnificent ways of sensing, embracing perfection in your present.
Do what you want to, get active in your now; what will come, will come – let the future be. Be not afraid of what could go wrong; imagine, think and focus upon all the wonderful things that could go right. Wait not on the ‘perfect moment’; make it, create it, for yourself – now and in each moment that you so choose! Gifts and blessings abound for your taking.
Right Now, You’re the Youngest You’ll Ever Again Be
Do you sometimes think, “I’m too old for that!”? Whether it relates to something you’d like to do / experience, or perhaps an item of clothing you know in your heart (and skin) you’d feel fabulous in, or possibly even a long-term relationship that you’d like to change in some way?
Has the ‘age factor’ ever stopped you from doing what you might’ve otherwise done? If so, ponder on this: in this very moment, you’re the youngest you’ll ever again be!
Yes, in this moment, you’re the youngest you’ll ever again be!
And so it goes from this moment to your next, and your next…
So really – do you still think it’s a good idea to wait? Or to not now joyously and bravely do what your spirit sings to you to do?
Inhale Magnificent Life
Your time, dear one, is now,
Inhale Magnificent Life,
Bid sweet farewell to the strife.
You’re divinely connected to Source,
On immaculate course with the Universe;
Feel the Love: the love that is yours, the love that is you,
Be the love: a love that you crave, a love so true.
Dance, smile, laugh, play, fly free,
Be all and even more of who you long to be;
You’re amazing, blessed, perfect,
Of your own life, you’re the chief architect.
You’re peace at your core,
Now even more-so than before;
Become aware of the miracles,
Embrace with abandon the abundant gifts in your life physical,
Intellectual, emotional, spiritual.
Gifts in Rejection
The feelings arising from being refused, unaccepted, dismissed or even simply unacknowledged usually make us feel imperfect, unworthy and small. It may even trigger feelings of abandonment. Yet, there are many a gift and blessing to be found in rejection, a few of which include: freedom; self-acceptance; and trusting the flow of life.
In any relationship situation, whether personal or professional, your acceptance or not is usually dependent upon the judgements and perceptions of another human being toward you. I say ‘human being’ ‘cos we often tend to place the value of the person doing the rejecting at a higher level than we value ourselves. Yet yes, he / she too is human.
Equally so, every person / organization has preferences and needs. These are most probably based on their own past experiences, as well as on their current desires and needs. Should you not fit into their plans, accept it with contentment for what it is; in the knowledge and trust that both you and the other party will find a match.
After all, you want to be wanted, needed, valued and loved for all that ‘you’ are, right? If you’re not that fit for somebody, allow them to move on to their fit. Your own fit definitely exists and is more wonderful than you currently imagine. He / she / they will love, accept, value and adore you (mostly) for all that you are, as you are – and you will know it and feel it.
In the interim, embrace the glorious feelings of lightness and abandonment which can blossom and bloom from rejection. A definite positive is that you now know where you stand. Bid farewell to simmering in uncertainty or to waiting on the approval of another.
Focus. On yourself. Create your own path. You may choose to change something learned from your experience, or you may simply move forward with accepting yourself wholly and fully for all of the Spirit-created wonder which you are. The choice and decision is completely yours – to move forward in freedom from this point onward.
Your rejection by someone is not a reflection of your value or your worth. Neither is it a reflection of your lovability.
Nothing external (mistakes made, shortcomings, foibles) changes the being that you are. Everyone is on a learning path. It’s a continual process of growth and evolution. And regardless of how ‘perfect’ another may seem to be, know that he / she is no more ‘perfect’ than you yourself are. Just as you don’t know their full story, so too, they don’t know your full story.
You’re the writer of your own story. Take the lead, be the lead and script your story your way. Generously include all of the awesomeness and magnificence which is already you!
You’re lovable. You’re so very valuable. Perfectly as you are. Yes, in all of your imperfections and humanness. It’s up to ‘you’ to accept you: in your heart, in your mind, at your core.
Embrace yourself; in joy, in confidence, in love. Shine.
Trusting the Flow:
When rejected, trust that it’s okay. And that it’s most possibly even a part of the Greater Plan for your life, which you cannot clearly see at this moment in time.
Life is about change, this too shall pass.
Hold on to the best in yourself; let all else go.
Flow with the current of the river, allow it to guide and carry you; battle not against it. Surely, in its Greater Natural Wisdom, it will carry you to a space and to a place which is optimally peaceful, happy and fulfilling for you.
When you glance back upon your life later down the line, trust that perfection is what you will see and feel 😌
Do you long to live and thrive in happiness more often? What’s holding you back? Possibly some of the things which you have in your life, rather than things you don’t have? By assessing your current space and determining your ‘nice’-space / your optimal-space, you have the power to choose whether letting go will feed your happiness.
What sorts of thoughts, feelings, situations and experiences are you predominantly keeping for company these days?
Freedom, lightness, joy, living-in-the-moment? A passion for life? A sense of fulfilment, peace and calm? Love, trust, faith, inner quiet, knowingness and serenity? Are you primarily maintaining these thoughts, feelings and outlooks regardless of the circumstances, situations and experiences which come your way?
Or might you perhaps be leaning primarily toward anxiety, fear, anger, disappointment, sadness, doubt, envy, jealousy? Rejection? Hurt? Pain? Doubt? Uncertainty? Betrayal? Judgement? Worthlessness? Guilt?
Are you perhaps being weighed down by the burden of a secret? Insecurity? Loneliness? Tension? Stress? A need to be perfect? The approval of another? Responsibility that isn’t yours to bear? Being caged in preconceptions? Drama? A mistake made? The past? The future (in your ‘waiting’)?
Your status? Your position? Your title? Your salary?
Are you holding on to a gorgeous pair of shoes that pinch at your little-toe with every step you take? A luxurious coat which you haven’t worn in years ‘cos there hasn’t been a ‘special’ enough occasion to wear it to yet?
With contemplation and an enhanced awareness of the types of thoughts and feelings you predominantly experience, comes your power to choose what type of space you would actually like to be in.
Your thoughts may be random and may also often be based upon subconscious influences, true. Yet it is you who ultimately commands the power and free-will choice of what you hold on to and what you let go of on a conscious level.
By nature’s law, that which you choose to focus on is usually strengthened, while that which you diminish significance toward slackens its power to influence you.
What do you want to strengthen and grow in your life? Your happiness and your freedom? Perhaps your trust and your faith? Peace and calm? If so, that’s where you would do best focusing your attention.
Let the worry and anxiety go; ease up on the doubt (particularly on the self-doubt); and stay clear of the path of being swept up in, or contributing to, chaos and clutter.
Keep in mind that situations and circumstances can change in an instant by factors either within or beyond your control – both whether you choose to hold on to things or whether you choose to let go.
Yet now that you know what benefits your life positively and places you in a ‘nice’-space, it should be easier to let go of those things which don’t; or at least to loosen you attachment to, and the level of significance you attribute to, certain things.
Remember that you choose to hold onto something when it serves a purpose in your life. Only you can determine if the qualities of that purpose and the impact it has upon your life benefits you in the long-term on a human level.
By ‘human level’ I mean that sometimes when you don’t have much / are at rock-bottom, you realize how blessed you are with the simple things which you do have in life. If you lose your job which you placed much significance on, for instance, you come to realize that who you inherently are is not dependent upon the work you did, or upon what others thought of you in your position regardless of how much in others’ esteem you may have been held.
If an illness befalls you, or if you’re involved in an accident and lose a limb; you’re still the same person. Your capabilities may shift, yet your value and your lovability remains. And under such circumstances you may even develop abilities of previously-latent potentials.
Things change. Life changes. The superficial attributions of what society considers to be ‘valuable’ fluctuate from moment to moment, and may even be dependent on what is ‘fashionable’ at a specific time. Your genuine worth and value always remains.
The more often you choose to let go of / reduce the value of non-beneficial elements, the easier it is to do. Your thoughts, attitudes and behaviors sculpt neural pathways in your mind. When you repeat something often enough (for instance, a thought or an action), it becomes easier and easier for your mind to identify with and a pattern is developed. These dominant patterns become your go-to responses in situations.
Why not nurture your go-to-response to being that of letting-go of that which doesn’t impact your life to genuine happiness and joy 😌
Don’t wait on the ‘special’ moments; your every ‘now’ moment is a special moment; choose to make it so, and so will it be 😌
Choose wisely. Let go, breathe, flow free, smile 😌
2 Universal facts of life: 1. Upsetting situations will constantly be around; 2. A moment is a moment that cannot be gotten back. Isn’t it therefore most logical a choice to make peace and let go; directing your focus toward your own wellbeing, contentment and happiness in as many moments as possible?
Make peace with it upfront, now, once-and-for-all: there’ll constantly be situations, experiences and people to upset you. Try as you may, you cannot control this; it’s just a (wonderfully cr*ppy!) part of life. 😌
Hehehehe, as an equalizer, sometimes you’re the one in the role of the ‘upsetter’ (the one doing something to result in another being upset) – unintentionally, of course; while someone else is the ‘upsetee’ (upset with you).
Either way, it’s just human nature that things sometimes don’t flow according to your vision or your plan; and you don’t always get your desires, wants and needs met (or sometimes you do, but not to the standards you expect).
So why not simply choose to laugh at the reality of a situation, accept it for what it is, let go and move on as care-freely and as peacefully as possible? After all, it’s almost certain that nobody else (certainly not the person upsetting you) is paying the situation as much attention as you yourself are. Neither is anyone else wasting any energy over it.
Make peace (even if it’s the best kind – just quietly internally with yourself). Let go, move on, be happy!
…Remember to press replay when the next situation rolls around. 😌
You’re driving down a middle-lane of the highway, following all of the road-rules, and with your awareness in peak form. You’re merrily whistling along to your favorite tune and you’re in the flow while you’re maximizing your good feelings before arriving at the office for a crazy day ahead…
You made a conscious decision to be happy, well done! 😌
Then, another driver whizzes by you and honks his horn endlessly, sticking his middle-finger out of his car-window…
Of course, it’s a baffling and upsetting situation to say the least, ‘cos you obviously don’t know where his actions originated from.
How do you react? Do you instantly sign-language him also? Do you give chase? Do you allow the experience to consume you for the remainder of your drive? Do you perhaps vent to colleagues at work (which almost certainly spirals into at least a 20minute complaining-session about the state of the traffic in general)?
Or do you, in all of your wisdom and care for yourself, decide to give the situation the few seconds of attention that it deserves (albeit if only to get over the shock), and move on with the balanced flow of your life again?
Perhaps even wish the seemingly crazy guy well, in your heart and in your mind? After all, who knows what’s going on his life, or what that incident was really about? Or even if it was truly intended to be directed at you?
Challenging situations and experiences – sometimes heart-wrenching, mind-numbing, spirit-sapping and mind-boggling – will come along in life. It’s not like there’s going to be any shortage of cr*ppy moments for you to deal with.
So why choose anything other than peace and calm (if not outright happiness) in each other moment that you’re actually capable of doing so?
A moment spent in being upset, angry, disappointed or fearful is a moment of your life lost. All the moments of your life make up your lifetime. Given a choice, wouldn’t you choose to be in happiness and peace in each moment, rather?
Each moment is your moment. Choose how you feel in every moment. Brighten your thoughts and allow your emotions to automatically lighten.
Let go, choose you, it only makes sense! 😌
It’s true, happiness is a subjective thing. What makes another happy may not necessarily make you happy. Yet, your happiness is truly not dependent on any other. Your perspective, your attitude and your action-choices are 3 valuably amazing things that you already have to be happy…
Have you ever noticed how different things look when you’re standing at a point, or even driving from one point to another; as opposed to the way they look when you scan the picture from an aeroplane or from the vantage point of a high building?
This is just a matter of perspective. From one point, your vision is somewhat limited; from the other, your vision is vastly expanded.
When you’re engulfed in a situation or an experience which doesn’t feel good, gently remind yourself that you’re in a limited-perspective space.
Regardless of what’s going on or how much you may be able to see, know that there’s a bigger picture and more at work than you may be aware of at a certain point in time. And even though all you may see is the dark gloomy clouds, the magnificent sun surely is there!
Choose a perspective which brings you peace and happiness. Trust. Surely from this, light will flow.
Aaaaah yes, the amazing power of your thoughts! Why not choose to use them wisely, for your own maximum wellbeing and happiness?!
It’s not easy to control your thoughts, I agree; particularly when circumstances challenge. Yet, have you ever considered that you don’t have to control them? Let yourself off the hook, breathe deeeep and eeeasy. Allow your thoughts to flow; while you merely direct them toward a happier outlook and chosen outcome for yourself.
Creating more and deeper levels of happiness and contentment in your life doesn’t have to be an instant thing. Embrace it for what it is – a process of gradual, conscious transformation.
With an attitude of happiness, what quality of experiences will follow, do you think?
Seeing things with an expanded awareness (your perspective) and thinking more positively (your attitude) over a sustained period of time, should have the automatic and joyous side-effect of generating different actions.
The action-choices you make are then but the gifts of your evolved perspective and attitude. And when your action-choices change, know for certain that your experiences will change!
How amazingly and wonderfully powerful is it to know for a fact that you already possess the primary things that you need to be happy?! 😌
We all want to be happy. Why? ‘Cos it feels sooOooo damn good. Being in happiness is your free choice. Choosing to be happy is wickedly and naughtily wise because: it revs your allure; it boosts your attraction-factor; it heightens your senses and sensuality…
Ever notice how people seem to be intrigued by you when you’re in a state of blissful peace (a.k.a. happy) and they don’t know what’s going on? It’s almost as if they need a reason for you seemingly floating on heavenly clouds of happy-vapor.
And when you can’t ‘justify’ your mood to them, you become even more of a figure of mystique. Hehehehe, keep smiling and keep them wondering – especially if there’s no specific reason for you feeling good, other than your decision to be and feel so!
Being happy, content and at peace revs up your life-hormones and frees up your creative energy. Most healthy people, either at a conscious or subconscious level, are attracted to the pulsating free-flowing life-energy which is all of creation.
Go on – laugh, dance, play; get creative in whatsoever plain or crazy way you choose!
Feeling happy is about exploring and discovering the gifts, blessings and opportunities in every situation and circumstance.
Being in a space of gratitude for all that is, amplifies your awareness; which in turn has a direct correlation with heightening your senses.
And even more exciting is that genuine contented bliss has the promise of enduring beyond a ‘happy’ mind-blowing 15 second orgasm. Aaaaaah, both do come down to feeling good though! 😌
Choose happiness. For in happiness is wisdom, in wisdom is happiness. And the fulfillment of your desires is in your control.
