Happiness

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.

Is Spiritual Awakening Imminent?

I have come to believe that what we term enlightenment in various spiritual traditions is an act of biological transformation within the consciousness of matter. It is not a spiritual event so much as a biological event. It often happens spontaneously for people who have no spiritual background and who are not even looking for it. If this is so, then is it possible that as we go through changes in the consciousness of matter on a collective level, that a wave of enlightenment would follow?
Sri Aurobindo and his spiritual partner Mirra Alfassa, also known simply as the Mother, believed that this would be the case. A hundred years ago, they spoke of the supramental transformation that would be occurring on Earth and emphasized the necessity of experiencing this first in our own bodies. They spoke of waves of cosmic light that would move through human consciousness, preparing us for this great shift.
These waves are coming in now. Many systems are emerging all over the world with the intention of harnessing these waves and using them for inner transformation. My sense is that we are close to a critical mass, at which point the vast reservoirs of undiscovered potential within our DNA will get turned on. We can then harness the incoming cosmic energies and anchor them in the physical body, leading to what some refer to as taking the rainbow body, a process of unifying our physical bodies with our light bodies.
