I’am going to be happy – no matter what

pexels-laughing child indian - Surajith S.

 

“We are really advocates of just getting as happy as you can be — which takes care of everything.

Even if you don’t have reason to be happy — make it up. Fantasize it.

Make a decision that you’re going to be happy one way or another — no matter what.

No matter what, I’m going to be happy! If I have to ignore everybody;

if I have to never watch television again;

if I have to never pick up a newspaper again, I’m going to be happy.

If I never have to see that person’s face again, I’m going to be happy.

If I have to see that person’s face, I’m going to find something to see in that person’s face that makes me happy.

I’m going to be happy.

I’m going to be happy.

I’m going to be happy.”

– Abraham Hicks

Off course, the “inner work” is to reach a point wherein no matter what your physical reality is, you feel happy but if you are not able to feel happy while in your current physical reality, then are you supposed to tolerate your negative emotions till you wither away?

No! You can get some distance between that which pains you and you. In that time and space that you get, you can sharpen your focus till the time you are able to focus on any topic (even if it was painful to you earlier) and find something in it to feel better about it (it can be but need not be enthusiastically happy…. just feeling better is awesome too while on your path to feeling good about it) i.e. you achieve stability in your good feeling thoughts. As you do that, you reconnect to your invincibility, to your freedom. The power which creates worlds flows through you. In fact, it is you.

Yes, sometimes, because of the way we are focused on a situation, we cannot feel positive emotion. There is nothing wrong in it. We are human and we need to be easy on ourselves. Negative emotion always tells us that we have grown but have not gone ahead with our growth. Whenever we feel upto it, we can change the way we are focused on it and thereby taste true freedom – i.e. free to feel whatever emotion we want to feel irrespective of what is happening around us. Sometimes, choosing to distance oneself from what is painful helps in reaching this place of strength and therefore, is the path of least resistance (it need not be but sometimes, it is and only you know that by the way you feel about it). From this place of strength, we are of value to ourselves and to anyone else we may want to be of value to.

You can choose to believe what supports and nurtures you

“Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to.”

– Alan Keightle

___________________________________

People pick up beliefs as they grow up because of what they have seen, heard and/or experienced. In case you have beliefs which do not support you, you can always change them to supportive, nurturing beliefs. A belief is only a thought that you have been thinking again and again. You can start thinking another thought too in place of the one you want to change. For example, if you have a belief like the following –

“the world is not a safe place. We need to always be on our guard.”

This can be changed to

“The world is safe and friendly. I am at peace with life. I am one with life. All is well”

Why would you want to change your beliefs? Firstly, because a supportive belief will give you relief, it will make you feel better. Secondly, because what you believe comes true for you in your experience. It’s what is called a self-fulfilling prophecy in Psychology. This is similar to what the law of attraction states – “like attracts like” i.e. what you feel attracts more to feel the same. It’s helpful to know this because the thoughts you think lead to the feelings you feel. You can believe the opposite of the belief you want to change and then you will start to see that coming through in your life experiences.

When you look at the manifestations, over a period of time, in someone’s life, it’s easy to deduce what beliefs that person may have. If you would like your physical reality i.e. the manifestations that you are living to be different from what they currently are (either in one area of your life or many areas), you may want to look at the beliefs you hold.

You are love

Love - Rose petals - Shahista Fatima - pexels

“Nothing is more debilitating than to care about something you can’t do anything about. And you can’t do anything about your adult children. You can want better for them, and maybe even begin to provide something for them, but in the long run, you cannot do anything about someone else’s vibration other than hold them in the best light you can, mentally, and then project that to them. And sometimes, distance makes that much more possible than being up close to them.”

– Abraham

________________________________________

This can apply to any relationship. Sometimes, distance makes it easier for you to reach a point wherein you can feel better about someone. It’s not a guarantee but chances are high.

Why would you want to feel better about someone? Because you are love. You love it when you are feeling love and you do not like it when you are feeling any negative emotion. Negative emotion has value as it is part of the emotional guidance you are born with but it is not who you are and that is why you love it when you are feeling love, joy, appreciation, worthy, empowered, free – because that is who you are. Feeling better for the sheer joy of feeling better.

Law of attraction lets everything be

roads-Abraham Barrera-unsplash.com

Just because someone’s approach is different from yours does not mean it is wrong and your approach is right….going by how it feels to you has more value than going by trying to decide whether it’s right or wrong…

____________________________________

“Everything is valid and everything is truthful, because Law of Attraction lets everything be. The question is not whether it’s right or wrong, whether their approach is right or wrong, or whether my approach is right or wrong. The question is: Does their approach feel good to me? And if it doesn’t, then I choose a different approach.”

– Abraham
