HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE

“God’s will for me is perfect happiness.” A Course In Miracles

“I will choose to be happy today.”

We are responsible for our own happiness. It doesn’t come from anyone or anything outside of us.

Happiness comes from a decision to be happy. It is a chosen state of mind. We can’t look at everything about ourselves or others through a negative lens without bringing a negative experience into our lives.  And in the same way we can’t look at our lives through a positive lens without having a positive experience. Call it karma or cause and effect; it’s simply the way it is. God doesn’t do anything but honor our choices. It’s called free will. But why would we choose against our own peace of mind?

“My happiness and my function are one.” A Course In Miracles.  If our purpose is happiness than it makes perfect sense that we must choose it, not only for ourselves, but for God.

When we have a dark thought, our question is how can I turn that thought around? Then we think something happy and feel the happiness arise within. When we feel fear, our question is, how can I feel differently right now? Then we think of something loving and feel that love deep inside. Don’t fight the fear or the dark thoughts, but simply stand back and watch them. Then breathe quietly, rise above them, smile and laugh gently and change your mind. 

“Happiness is an attribute of love.” A Course in Miracles.  To choose happiness is to choose love and to choose love is to choose God.  So do we really have a choice?

Look. Breathe. Smile. Laugh. Transcend. Transform.

And remember it’s okay to be happy. After all, it is what God wants.

Prayers for all those who may be experiencing extreme weather conditions, fires or floods anywhere in this world.  Our loving thoughts are with you. May God keep you safe and transform the extremes into harmony and balance. 

Let us also pray for healing and health for all the world. Let us ask for help with kindness and love and trust to generate the health and wellness and safety we want for everyone on earth. And then let us be grateful and say Thank You, God!

A happy outcome to all things is sure.” A Course In Miracles
