Wisdom from Marie Claire Bernards

The fastest way to happiness and peace is the absolute acceptance of WHO YOU ARE right in this moment.

The nature of humanness is divinity. This is evident in many of the daily “miracles” of our existence: our body, the seasons, the supreme organization of the universe. We know this in our cells, our bones. There is a deep resonance to the truth that we are all connected, that divinity expresses ITSELF as us, exactly as we are.

The ego says, “Ok, you have the capacity to love and sure, you might be an expression of the divine, but until you get your spending under control, your weight under control, stop losing it with your kids, take one more class, get one more degree, stop being depressed, get a job, a lover, a clear complexion, be articulate, express your art, eliminate feeling awkward, etc… you are not going to have access to the secret, the happiness, the peace, the abundance, the ones, etc..”

It's amazing too, when you realize you are not the victim but rather take charge and responsibility for what you can do in the moment to make things work. Not easy sometimes, but what a freeing feeling and the best part is IT WORKS!

You have to face your flaws and demons before you can make a change and get rid of them. That kind of self-honesty can be a painful experience. But until you do it, you won't be free to be truly happy.

I prefer the word "content" to happiness. You cannot humanly be happy all the time. But you can be content with what you have, who you are, or who you are with. thanks
