WHY NOT BE HAPPY?

Happiness is an attribute of love. My happiness and my function are one.” A Course In Miracles

“Today I will practice happiness. Happiness is my purpose here.”

What the heck, why not be happy?  We know we want it.  It’s really all everyone wants. No matter how extremely we act out against ourselves and others or how fiercely we try to protect ourselves from others, we really just want to feel peace and safety right here, right now.

Just as we allow the sun and rain to keep our gardens healthy, so must we allow the nourishment and light of loving thoughts to shine away our fear for the healing of our minds and hearts.

We must decide for peace. 
We must choose joy.

“… happiness belongs to you.” A Course In Miracles

We are not the victim of a cruel and angry, unpredictable world.  Instead we have victimized ourselves by choosing our negative thinking and separating ourselves from our brothers and sisters through judgment and unkind words and thoughts. 

“Now are we saved indeed. For In God’s Hands we rest untroubled, sure that only good can come to us. No longer is the world our enemy, for we have chosen that we be its Friend.” A Course In Miracles

So why not be happy?  What else have we got to do?
