LOOK AND LET GO

“God being Love is also happiness. God’s Will for me is perfect happiness.” A Course In Miracles

“Sitting quietly in the hush of dawn, we hear the waking sounds of earth and see the shifts in light and shadow that a more hurried mind would miss. Impatience wastes happiness.” Hugh Prather

“I will let happiness happen today.”

The secret to peace and happiness is don’t try to achieve it.  Just let it happen.  We think we have to work to be happy.  It’s just the opposite.  Happiness is a state of being, not doing.  There is nothing we can do or possess that will make us happy or unhappy. Happiness is.  It’s in us already. 

We think our natural state is challenge and fear and anger, guilt and sadness. We think we have to fight those feelings and stamp them out in order to be happy.  We think we have to hide them and from them, pushing them deep inside of us where we can forget them.  Or we think we must project them onto others. And we think we must do all this NOW!

The better way is to accept our feelings no matter what they are.  Stand back and accept, “I am afraid here.”  “I am mad about this.” “Look how sad I am.” “I feel so guilty!” Accept the feelings and then release them. Looking and hanging on is another mistake. It’s LOOK AND LET GO!

It’s true the only thing we fear is fear.  But keeping it a secret (even from ourselves) or projecting it onto the world is where we make our mistakes. When we simply accept and rest in the fear, then surrender it to Love it dies a gentle death.  It is the same as turning on the light in a dark room.  When we shine the light upon our fears, they disappear into that light which is our own truth. And we do this quietly in the hush of dawn or the gentleness of dusk or any time we find or make a quiet, unhurried moment for ourselves.

And now in this clean, pure state of innocence we are ready to accept our happiness, our peace, our joy … our true essence which lives and breathes and walks in Light.
