Is Happiness Cosmic Consciousness?

Is Happiness Cosmic Consciousness?

The secret of universal happiness has three parts: Freedom from all limitation, complete knowledge of creation, and immortality. That such a condition is possible proves the existence of love, since nothing more could be wished for. Until the moment when these three things are achieved, every other awakening is false; the whole universe exists in the dream state, the pursuit of a cosmic delusion.

This delusion consists of separation, fragmentation, the loss of wholeness. There must be a final “No!” that refuses to participate in the delusion.

Whatever is in the mind is like a city in the clouds. The emergence of this world is no more than thoughts coming into manifestation. From the infinite consciousness we have created each other in our imagination. As long as there is “you” and an “I,” there is no liberation. Dear ones, we are all cosmic consciousness assuming individual form.

It’s nearly impossible perhaps to take these noble sentiments into the rough and tumble of everyday life, but if we can live from essence – that is workable. Essence is love. Not the love of passing emotion or the love that gets attached to one person but the sheer love of being here. By comparison, the emotional kind of love is confined, doubtful full of fear, and driven by dreams that never get fully realized.

You are the unborn and undying “I am.” Remember that, and if your mind wanders from the truth, bring it back.

Adapted from The Book of Secrets, by Deepak Chopra (Harmony Books, 2004).

The other day, at McDonalds, I conversed with a new friend. We talked of many things, of democracy and frogs and salted cucumbers, well, perhaps. Before we parted, he said, "you're healthy and you're happy."

I guess I do get excited when I tell someone who is interested in the fearsome conditions of our planet about Care2. It's really jubilating when they reach for a pen and paper to write down Care2 Petitions.

Many folks are concerned about survival on and with planet Earth. They just don't know what to do about it. So I tell them what we do. AND they write it down. lol

I suppose happiness is at the top of the list for most people. It never has been for me.

Most religions teach that happiness is attained through their path. Maybe yes. Maybe no.

I have experienced Nirvana. I'm not impressed.

Happiness is an emotion that affects all it touches. Yet it is not the answer to problems or to spiritual growth. Yet happiness is more adventurous than contentment. I do not want to be a contented cow.

When I was young, I used to say, I want to experience life, the good and the bad of it. I shall lift it's chalice to my thirsting lips and drink it to the dregs. I've pretty well done that. It does not satisfy.

I find my satisfaction in bringing happiness to others, as I can.

Happiness for self alone does not satisfy.
