An attitude of gratitude brings more joy to Life than grumbling and complaining. Living with love brings joy into living. Living with love replaces guilt, blame and shame with happiness. There is no need for concern about the future life if we live the life we have now with love in our hearts. If we live with love, happiness can unfold like a flower.
Try living with belief in continuous living. Imagine living in love and light forever, with infinite joy without worry or suffering, and with freedom of the Universe. Does that make you happy? It is not being loved but loving others that brings happiness. Love for money and material things and being in love may bring happiness for a while but it doesn’t last. Lasting happiness comes not from possessions or possessing people but from living in love with Life; the life that is always in us.
Love and joy can flow out from the Life within us, toward people, places and things, if we allow it. The objects of our affections continually change and sadness can come with the changes until we learn that happiness comes not from anything outside of us, happiness resides within us. That is why we need to know ourselves.
When we love whoever we are with a fountain of happiness opens within. For me recently it was a hornet that wanted to share a caravan with me. She was gorgeous and I was much happier when I welcomed her and let her fly in and out as she wanted than when I was in fear I might have to live in a hornet’s nest!
My son Sam’s partner, Sonia, said that the best way to find happiness is to serve others. It matters not if we are rich or poor. Greed or envy will not make us happy but compassion, gratitude and service, even to a hornet, can release the flow of happiness. Howard Storm was taught that the best way to grow spiritually is through service. Many great spiritual teachers, including the late Saytha Sai Baba taught that. My experience is that this is true.
