True Happiness Is Waiting Inside You.

The test of a smile is whether your eyes are smiling, too.

The great masters teach that external objects do not bring you true happiness. You feel happy for a short time when you get something or succeed at something, but that happiness fades.

Wouldn’t it be lovely if you could feel happiness — joy — bliss all the time?

That’s possible when you learn to go within yourself and experience your true nature.

We are each the Divine Self.  Our True Self is not separate from the Divine, and the Divine resides in complete, eternal bliss.

How can you contact your True Self?

By going within.

There are many ways to learn to go within.

For some people, sitting quietly in a natural setting, outside among trees, in a garden, by a stream are all ways of connecting with the outer world.   Then, after observing quietly what is around you, you can very naturally turn within and discover what is the beauty of your inner world.

Some people learn to be focused inwards by practicing yoga or a martial art such as Tai Chi.

Meditation is a great practice to strip away all the noise in your head so you can discover the quiet spot inside.  At the Core of your Being is where your True Self and happiness reside.

Allow yourself to be drawn to The Way that resonates for you.  Spend time being with yourself  quietly and with gentle focus.

Today, the Core of your being is in your Heart Chakra or Heart Center.

When you spend time in your Heart Center, it is easier to get in touch with your inner Bliss.

Once the outer world becomes quiet, the inner world can be heard … seen … felt … experienced.

Your inner world is blissful, peaceful, and filled with delight.

Does it surprise you to learn that happiness is your natural state of being?

Many people take nearly a lifetime of rushing around out in the world before they realize that there is nothing outside themselves that will bring them true happiness.

Why take an entire lifetime seeking outside yourself that which is already inside you?

You can begin today.  All you need do is heed the call of your Heart, the call of your True Self.

So turn off your electronic devices – yes, even your cell phone – and learn to go within. There is where you will find true happiness.

    This message is good. I started off today with many challenges of the external world. I did my best to address each as they came, then realized I could not do more. So just let the course of events flow. Worked out great, it seemed like the problems just solved themselves when I withdrew!
