What Do These Happy People Have In Common?
What do authors like Dr. Wayne Dyer, Joel Osteen, Cheryl Richardson, and Mother Angelica have in common?
They all know the secret how to turn a Green Sky to True Blue!
With the New Year fast approaching, we all have goals. One of the most popular desires is to be happy, from the inside out. A safe place where no one can steal your joy.
The paradox of how to attain happiness, is a secondary gain of just doing the next right thing, having the next right thought, taking the next right action.
So why isn’t everyone in the world happy in life?
The secret, which is really no secret is all, is that they stuck to what they believed in their heart to be true, regardless of what other people told them was true. They did not let their happiness come from other people’s minds, and neither do you.
Think of forgiveness. Is forgiveness a feeling or an action? If you think forgiveness is a feeling, you are living inside a deep suffocating green sky. Forgiveness is in the action. If you do not wish someone ill, pray they will be enlightened to a higher level of connected purpose, and are not attached to revenge or being “right,” you have indeed already forgiven. Don’t be concerned with the results.
People often say that volunteering is something they do to help someone else. The great paradox is that volunteering most assuredly helps someone – namely YOU. When you volunteer you have to give away something without expecting anything in return. The motivation behind your volunteering is what gives you more than you receive. Like a fragrant perfume that is sprayed on another person, if you are standing next to them, some of the splendor must fall upon you too. Giving away by volunteering immerses you in the gift first.
You may perceive an event is bad in the present moment, but if you are reading this, you are not dead. If you are not dead, you are not finished yet. You do not know what you do not know. This tragedy and set back, could actually be a genuine set up for your greatest comeback!
Think of past events that you thought were devastating, for which you are now grateful. “Thank God for unanswered prayers,” as the song goes. The same can be true for you in the present moment. Do not believe the lie that all things are not working out for the best for you, exactly as they should be. Don’t give up five minutes before the miracle!
Prayer is one of the greatest free gifts we can all utilize to get answers. Think of Prayer as; Peaceful Real Answers You Enjoy Regularly, and ask you Higher Power, God, whatever you can accept in this very moment, to guide you to learn what you need to understand to transform your obstacles into opportunities to help you achieve your dreams.
Nothing is ever wasted in a green sky turned blue.
What can you transform in the coming year to make it the best year ever?
