Happiness Is Not Complicated

664Being happy is not complicated nor is life, we just choose to complicate it.  We complicate it with our past, our future, negative thinking and/or our beliefs.  However, when you live through your Inner Life these things cease to exist because they are a figment of your imagination.  They are what your mind is thinking, not who you are.  You are the present moment and you are true happiness – pure – positive – plain and simple!

True happiness is the internal stable presence of unconditional love, peace, harmony, abundance and well-being.  It exists under any and all circumstances.  This does not mean you won’t experience negative emotion, because you will.  It just means you will be happy even if you do not feel happy.

Think of yourself like that of an electrical circuit.  As long as you stay connected to the Source (Inner Life), you will always have power; you will always be “working” correctly.  This connection will yield true happiness and give you access to whatever you desire.  It is when you rely upon external resources you lose your connection and power in a never-ending cycle of ups and downs.  External resources do in fact create the feeling of happiness and are very fulfilling at the time of inception but eventually the euphoria they bring will fizzle out and you will be left wanting bigger, better and more.

Inner Life = Source

Source = True Happiness

True Happiness = Inner Life

70Living through your Inner Life allows the constant flow of positive energy.  This positive flow of energy journey’s out into the Universe, and as we all know, like attracts like.  Your energy will then “attach” itself to the same likeness and immediately bring it back to you whether it be in the form of a positive emotion, a joyous life experience, or a material object.

Simply put, uncomplicate your life and allow happiness by living through your Inner Life first and foremost.  Live in the present moment, for YOU are the present moment, and YOU are true and lasting happiness!  Leave the rest behind and enjoy what life has to offer you right NOW!

Love & Light,

Start With Your Inner Life

185It goes without saying that if you want true and lasting happiness, start from within.  Start with your Inner Life, not your outer life.  True and lasting happiness does not come from what is on the outside, it comes from what is on the inside.  From the core of who you truly are.

When you start with your Inner Life, making how you feel your #1 priority, life will take a turn and so will you.  You will see all the good in the world instead of the bad.  You will notice what is working instead of what isn’t.  Your life will fill with abundance in ways you never thought possible. Your perception of life and how it is supposed to be will change as well, creating clarity, value and excitement towards what is yet to come.

111As you learn and practice your way into true happiness, you will be witness to some of the most magnificent and amazing moments and life experiences you have ever had. Just about everything changes in a manner that brings you peace, well-being, abundance and happiness.  All those worries and woes cease to exist, health issues begin to improve, healing replaces pain, energy increases, positive thinking replaces negative thinking, money starts flowing in, and all those desires you have begin to show themselves! But, it doesn’t stop there.  Reaching this “level” of happiness will create a shift so great that nothing else will matter except for how you feel.  

Being happy and feeling good truly does affect every area of your life.  Nothing can change when you approach life with an unhappy and negative state of mind.  It is time to stop giving so much attention to your outer life and start giving all your attention to your Inner Life. How you feel mentally, emotionally and physically is an indicator of where you are.  When you feel good, you are living in and through your Inner Life.  And when you feel bad, you are living in and through your outer life.   

122To live from your Inner Life is no different from living in the present moment because you are the present moment.  You are here now and that is something that will never change.  Give yourself the time you need to allow the happiness you so deserve.  Starting with your Inner Life will change you and your life forever!

Love & Light,

Stop Living In Unhappiness

If you are aware that there is happiness and there is unhappiness, why are you still living in unhappiness? Are you putting your happiness in the hands of other things such as personal status, material possessions, or relationships? What happened in your life that caused you to become out of tune with your Inner Life, the greater part of who you really are, and therefore unhappy? This is a question that many of you will never be able to answer, but in reality it doesn’t matter. All that matters is getting back in tune with your Inner Life, how you feel NOW, and being truly happy again. What has happened and what may happen is not as important as what is happening NOW.

When you are totally honest with yourself you will know deep down it is never something or someone who causes your unhappiness. You will know it comes from within because you will feel like something is missing, like you have this huge hole inside you and nothing you put in it fits quite right. It is like trying to put the square peg in the round hole ~ you know it doesn’t fit but you keep forcing it until one day you wake up and realize IT DOES NOT FIT ~ I DO NOT FIT IN THIS UNHAPPY LIFE!

Frog 01

As we grow and move through life, it is all too common to become distant and distracted from our Inner Life. This is not a fault, it is just the way of the human experience. Within a very short period of time we are fixated on what our Outer Life has to offer instead of being focused on the truer part of who we are and what our Inner Life has to offer. Over time, if the distance and distractions from your Inner Life do not dissipate, you will eventually begin to feel it in a variety of ways. It could come in the form of uneasiness, feeling unsettled, anxiety, loneliness, weight gain or loss, addictions, self-inflicted pain, anger, hatred, illness, depression or chronic unhappiness. All of these “dis-eases” are a byproduct of your OUTER life and to the attachments you hold there. They have never been, nor will they ever be, a part of your Inner Life, of who you really are.

If your unhappiness is overpowering your happiness or depriving you of a joyful life experience, it is time to take a step back and evaluate your life ~ truthfully. This can be difficult for some because people fear admitting the truth will cause more pain, and at first it might, but once you have acknowledged that which is the true cause of your unhappiness, you can then begin to acknowledge and FOCUS on that which will create true and lasting happiness. It is at this point your life WILL change and you will gracefully move back in tune with your Inner Life.

Frog 02

The root cause of all unhappiness is being out of tune with your Inner Life and depending too much on your outer life to fulfill you. Piled high are all those outer life things that create your negative emotions. The problems, the broken relationships, the unsatisfying careers, the lack of money, material possessions or your unhealthy behaviors and choices. Once you have let go of your attachment to the outer life and turn your focus inward, to your Inner Life, you will naturally fall back in tune with it. You are never disconnected from it, but through this negative emotion you can easily and consistently become out of tune with it.

Your Outer Life is not at all a bad thing, for it is full of excitement and adventures. And letting go of your attachment to it doesn’t mean to stop wanting the things you will find there. It just means to stop relying on those things for true and lasting happiness because it will never be enough. When you focus first on what is within, making your Inner Life your foundation, your starting point for all that life has to offer, you will naturally be in balance with your Outer Life. What this means is that when what you want is planted, nurtured and born through your Inner Life first, it expands, grows and manifests into your Outer Life with its core being purity, well-being, peace, joy, love and happiness. But when you plant your dreams and desires in your outer life first, they are born with the need to attach yourself to something or someone with the belief it / they will make you happy. The foundation of such may as well be made out of sand. It may appear strong and sturdy, but eventually it will cave in.

Your transition into true and lasting happiness will in fact dissolve any emotional pain associated with your outer life. The things you feared the most won’t create as much upset as you may have thought they would. This is because when you are in tune with your Inner Life, when you are focused on being happy, your reactions and thoughts change with the desire of wanting to feel good. You will react in a more positive manner ~ one that will not affect your happiness the way it used to. You are now in control.

To get to happiness, you have to stop being in unhappiness. You know where you want to go, so stop being where you are. If your heart’s desire is to be truly happy, isn’t it time you are? The only one responsible for your happiness is you. Your feelings are controlled by your thoughts and your thoughts are controlled by you. You cannot blame your unhappiness on your partner, family, friends, work, world events, politics, lack of money or anything else that resides in your outer life. Just like everything else in this world we always have a choice. We have free will to choose how we feel. So why do so many people choose to feel and be unhappy? Because they believe true happiness comes from the people, places and things around us instead of within us.

(Writer’s Note: I realize there are extenuating circumstances in which someone’s living conditions or environment would not consciously allow them the choice to be happy, but for the purpose of this blog, I am speaking in general terms associated with common scenarios.)

Making happiness your number one priority changes how you feel, how you think, what you have and what you don’t have. It creates healthy relationships, satisfying careers, overall well-being, and yes, it even creates more money in the bank. But most importantly, it puts you back in tune with your Inner Life. What more could you ask for?

If true and lasting happiness is what you are seeking, seek first from within. Live, breathe and be your Inner Life. Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment, and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be……
