Looking for a Better Life? Take Charge of These 3 Things

Looking for a Better Life? Take Charge of These 3 Things

A few years ago, I was given a glimpse of what eternity must be like: the intense, pure, twirling, dazzling, pale turquoise light I saw during a spiritual healing, behind my closed eyes, penetrated my soul. I wanted to remain in its presence forever. This amazing light represented divine love to me. It confirmed my belief that beyond this world is another realm where all beings go back to the Source we all originally came from.

The beliefs I held prior to the episode with the light were profoundly altered that day.

I can tell you this: You are fully responsible for the choices you make and the paths you take. There are lessons to be learned along the way and you must share with others what is enhancing the quality of your life. Some of the most important lessons I learned are about the need to express gratitude, the need to forgive, and the need to make happiness our life’s purpose.

Gratitude

The more thankful you are and the more you express your gratitude, the more blessings you will be showered with. Keep a gratitude journal. Write thank you letters to the Father/Mother God, to the Universal Creator. Let your family and friends know how much you appreciate them. Give thanks for being alive, for being healthy, for the sun, for the rain, for the food on your table, give thanks for everything dear.

Forgiveness

Learn to forgive yourself for your past errors, and forgive all those who have caused you grief. Holding grudges hurts you more than it does the offender. When you forgive, you will experience a sense of freedom! Forgiveness is healing, it is liberating! When you forgive, your heart overflows with unconditional love.

Happiness

True, complete happiness must be shared. Happiness belongs to the soul and it depends entirely on how you nurture it. We humans carry the seeds of all happiness: it is a choice we make daily….Finish reading on InspireMeToday.com.

I BELIEVE THE KEYS TO HAPPINESS ARE LISTENING TO YOUR HEART, FOLLOWING YOUR DREAMS, AND MAKING SURE YOU ARE HONEST, FAIR, AND TRUE TO YOURSELF. AND ALWAYS BALANCE IS KEY. IT'S NOT A GUARANTEE TO SUCCESS, BUT I BELIEVE IT IS A ROAD TO HAPPINESS.

A Buddhist saying I read said that there is no path to happiness - happiness is the path.

What do you make of it? I still ponder over it.
