Their Path Is Not Wrong, It’s Just Theirs

08It hurts to see someone we love struggle with life especially when we know what it feels like.  One of the greatest things I have learned throughout my journey is that everyone is on their own unique path.  No matter where they are or what they are doing, their path is not wrong, it’s just theirs.  It’s theirs to do whatever they want to do with it – good or bad. 

When we see someone struggling, we sometimes have the tendency to step off our path and onto theirs.  In our effort to help, we put ourselves to the side, but in the end, it doesn’t help them and it doesn’t help us.  It doesn’t help them because eventually their path is not going to work for us so they will be left feeling abandoned and alone when we make the choice to go back to our own path.  It doesn’t help us because when we take the path of another we lose ourselves in the other person’s struggles which leads to becoming out of tune with our Inner Life.

96What I have discovered is that we can help others without stepping off our own path.  We can help by being an example of a positive life ~ a happy life.  We can encourage and support those around us without compromising our own happiness.  We share our own struggles of the past, giving them hope that they too can change their life. We lend guidance to show them that there is in fact a “better” way ~ a more fulfilling, abundant and joyful way of dealing with and overcoming life’s unwanted experiences. 

In trying to help those we love, or anyone for that matter, there is always a chance they will not be ready or willing to try another path.  For whatever reason, this too is okay.  There is no path that is wrong.  If the other person chooses to continue their struggle with no effort in changing things, it doesn’t mean your efforts have failed.  It just means they need to remain where they are even if they don’t know why. 

686It can be hard when someone chooses to stay where they are.  It’s hard because you know there is a happier way.  This is when you need to remain strong and you need to remain on your own path.  It is not a time to judge or criticize but to love unconditionally.  Accept them for who they are and where they are.  If their actions and behaviors are causing you pain, it may be time to walk away.  Rest assured, when the time comes, when they are ready to end their suffering, there is no doubt they will do whatever it takes to create a life more in tune with their true desires and dreams.  A life more in tune with their Inner Life, the greater part of who they truly are.

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, 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 …

Be, Have, and Live In Happiness

55There will always be times throughout our lives when we experience periods of unhappiness, of feeling down in the dumps.  But regardless of how we are feeling, it is our choice as to whether or not we want to stay there or move ourselves back to a better feeling place. 

There is nothing or no one who can make you feel anything ~ you are the only one who is in control of how you feel.  Yes, I know, we like to blame others for how we feel and we like to blame the world for how our life is playing out, but in reality and in truth, your life and your feelings are your choice.

59When feeling unhappy we have a tendency to focus on how we are currently feeling which in turn creates more feelings of unhappiness.  And before you know it, you are suffering from sadness and depression. So why not turn yourself toward the people, places and things that bring you happiness.  Turn yourself toward the present moment, leaving all past and future thoughts behind.  Being in the present moment is full of positive energy, abundance, well-being, unconditional love, peace, joy and true happiness.  It is a natural part of who you really are and you are never without it.

57Trust me, I know all too well how hard it can be to get up, get out, and get motivated when you feel like a slug.  But once you do, your entire body of energy will change and you will be back in tune with your Inner Life before you know it.  Your Inner Life does not know unhappiness.  It does not know the past, future, stress, worry, anxiety, depression, dis-ease or lack.  It is when we live outside ourselves, in our outer lives, that we suffer and live unhappy lives.  The more consistently you live within your Inner Life, the greater and more powerful part of who you are, the more in tune you will be and the more your life will be filled with joy and happiness! 

56So, instead of giving into the negativity of unhappiness, why not give into the positivity of joy and happiness!?!  No matter what is going on you can still be, have and live in happiness !!!

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!
