Where Does True Happiness Really Come From?
It's Not Nearly as Elusive as So Many Believe
True Happiness. What is it really and just as important, where does it come from? Can it Really be achieved and sustained long term regardless of what might be happening in the world?
The answer of course is YES.
So many in the world today are seeking True Happiness. I at this point in my journey have never heard anyone express a desire to be unhappy. Have you?
True happiness is such a necessary part of living a fulfilled life yet so few can honestly claim to have found it. Why is that? Why and how could it be that something that is so important and desired in the lives of so many seem to be so difficult to attain? How is it possible that so many who have such a strong desire to attain true happiness have such a difficult time attaining it?
The answer is so simple yet at the same time so complex. But the bottom line? The majority are looking for it in all the wrong places.
If you ask ANY person on any given day what they MOST desire in their lives, if broken down and analyzed is a desire to be happy. Each and every day I hear statements such as, “If only I could get that certain job, then I’d be truly happy.” Or “If only I could acquire a certain amount of money, that would be all I need to be happy.” Or “If only I could find just the right mate, then life would be truly fulfilling.” And still another, “If only I could attain a certain level of health, then life would be just perfect.” All different statements, but all pointing in the same direction, and desiring the same end result. Finding True Happiness.
While each of these areas ARE important and necessary in relation to living a truly fulfilled life in the external world, NONE of them in and of themselves will bring about a state of true happiness unless and until everything is balanced and in alignment on the inside.
The masses attempt to fulfill their deepest and most sought after external desires through the effects of an external world.
Take money for example. Let’s assume for a moment that you find at some point in your life that money becomes a concern. The way the majority have been taught and accepted as belief, is that you must go out and seek a way to bring the money that you want and need into your life. That you must do it yourself. Most, when they find themselves in this situation begin to do so in a state of urgency, panic, or fear. Although they may successfully find and receive the money they need for the present, in many cases it is done and acquired through undesirable means. Jobs that they dislike, hours that interfere with the other important priorities in their lives, occupations that conflict with the core values that they hold. This way of “fixing it” is ALWAYS temporary.
Little do they realize that although it may temporarily fulfill the immediate physical financial need that they have, it many times creates an imbalance in the other areas of life. This way of “fixing things” is what is considered to be fixing effects with effects.
What does that mean exactly? Quite simply, it is attempting to fix the physical with the physical. By trying to fix the physical world through physical means, and failing to recognize the True Source from where all things are derived, these perceived “fixes” will NEVER produce lasting results.
So What's The Real Answer?
Spiritual teachers have taught it for years, age old spiritual writings convey the message so clearly, recent science has proven through physical means that for every cause there is an effect. For EVERY action taken a result must occur based on that action. Yet so few really “GET IT.”
The pathway to “True Happiness” has been illuminated. The road to lasting fulfillment was constructed long before you arrived. The process has been created to unfold with extremely simple certainty. The answers are readily available. So why is it that so few discover it? Quite simply, they are looking in all the wrong places. The majority take the wrong road. Few take the time out of their busy “fix it” sessions to discover the REAL TRUTH.
Each and every person on this earth is made up of the same “stuff.” Anything and everything whether seen or unseen broken down and analyzed in it’s most basic form consists of this same stuff. Anything and everything that existed or ever has existed, consisted of and was brought into the physical world by means of this same invisible Stuff.
What is this Stuff? Some refer to it as God, Pure Energy, Universe, Gaia, or still others an All Pervasive Consciousness. Regardless of the many labels placed on it by the human population, this Source is the same Source that brings into physical manifestation each and every event, condition, and circumstance, that you experience in your life. Each and every thing, both seen and unseen is brought about due to this One Source. This Source is fixed, unwavering, precise, omniscient, omnipresent, unconditional and doesn’t deliver results based on judgments, age, origin, ethnicity, or religious preference. Every single thing in our world, whether seen or unseen is brought about through this Cause, this Source, this Energy, this Stuff.
Too many times people get sidetracked and confused as to what that Source is and where it can be and is found. On far too many occasions they engage in meaningless judgmental debate as to what it’s name is, who it likes better, what it wants you to eat and when, how you should dress to please it, where you should go to worship it, etc.
This Stuff is not based on scientific or religious speculation. It is all of these and none of these. It is THE “One True Source.” It is the same Source from where ALL things are derived.
Become conscious of this All Pervasive Consciousness, God, Universal, Gaia, or whatever you perceive it to be. Learn to eliminate the destructive and self sabotaging emotions and judgments of self and those in your circle of influence and replace the numerous false beliefs that you have absorbed and allowed to shut off the endless and limitless supply that this Source can and will provide you with IF you’ll only allow it too. Learn to silence the internal consistent noise going on within your mind that is referred to as thoughts and allow this Source to connect with you.
True Happiness lies within you. Yes YOU too! Not in the effects of the external world, but within each and every person that currently exists or has ever existed in this physical form that is referred to as life.
It is much closer and easier to find than most will take the time to discover, yet is so close and simple that many tend to overlook it. In fact it’s everywhere.
Find that place of “Knowing” on the inside. Learn to align the attractive energy that you possess on the inside with the Source from where that energy comes and everything else will fall into place on the outside.
True Happiness is ALOT closer and simpler to attain than you may think. That is a BIG part of the problem. The majority THINK that it is difficult, that true happiness is somehow achieved through physical things and events, that they must seek it out in the physical world. Go within and find it. The simplicity of it all will, with a seemingly miraculous “Knowing”, be revealed to you and your life will reflect one of Fulfillment, Joy, Profound Inner Peace, and Unlimited Prosperity in EVERY area that “You Choose.”
Ultimately you have been provided the free will to choose or not choose what you will do with your life. It is that very free will to choose that will determine your existence in the physical world.
Make the choice to be happy. Develop the understanding of the “True Source” from where “True Happiness” comes. Quit trying to “Fix” the physical through physical means. Choose to separate yourself from the endless and meaningless judgmental debate as to who and what this Source is. Discover the True Source and learn to go within and take action on the inner guidance that follows, and your life will turn into a series of joyful, fulfilling and seemingly miraculous events.
