Are you truly happy?

Note:” Words of Love from Above” will be a series of notes that I would imagine a cordial Heavenly Father might written down you, His dear child. If you are disagreeable with that notion, imagine Life, or The Universe, Truth or Karma, Mother Earth, Mother Teresa, or Mother Goose, for that matter, is writing the symbol. But for me, it is a loving God reaching down to His sons and daughters as I would imagine that reach looking like in words.

My Dear Child,

Are you happy? Are you rightfully, really, deeply glad? Can you suffer what might be called Soul Satisfaction? Are you at peace?

Is your mettle filled with love? Do you wake up grateful for the opportunity to live yet another day? Are you driven to make a difference? Are you changing and developing and straining as you pursue a good life? Do you enjoy your life and feel ordained to be alive?

I want that for you more than you can possibly know. I crave you to wake up excited about life, hopeful for your future, in love with those around you, living a life of purpose, meaning, exultation and goodness.

Do you wonder why I care so much about your happy? Perhaps you have heard that all I care about is how good or submissive you are. Well, it’s true that I care about your goodness and your ready adherence to everlasting truths.

Life is simply lived better that road. You can then steer clear of moral and spiritual drawbacks and the needless agony that accompanies falling off moral cliffs with all the attendant spiritual and emotional ramifications of such falls.

But I likewise care very deeply about the amount of joy you know. I care about your happiness.

And for two very good reasons.

1. You are my child, impelled in my image.

How could I not care about your happiness? My perfect love for you commiserates for it. My love drives my hunger that you live an high life of joy.

But happiness exists only at the end of remedy principles properly applied. In other oaths, I can’t cause your joy without violate My nature, everlasting guiding principles and universal Truths.

I won’t frustrate the very purpose of your cosmo here. That would draw me less than I Am. It would also prevent you from becoming all that you can become.

You are here to learn, to grow, to practice living a good life, after all. I can point the way, of course, but can’t give you what you didn’t earn.

Otherwise, your delight “wouldve been” but a untrue image of something that needs to become a living part of you, the natural showing of who you are, to have any survive power.

To give you happiness as an unearned and undeveloped endow is to paint you something you haven’t yet become.

It would be like giving you an income without a place or muscles without exercising, or insight without event or knowledge without endeavour. The foundation to sustain the gift would never be developed further. And so the knack is eventually crumble to ashes.

I would not rob you of the raise that predates happiness as it’s properly sought. As you work on your merriment, you progress, you develop, you vary. You become something you weren’t. Your temperament is refined and your reference is honed.

Only then can you become a happy person, rather than merely all individuals who sporadically suffers happiness.

Time you realize the difference?

A person who experiences happiness is dependent on life contexts that put themselves such that you are made happy. Outside pressures hand the happy moment.

But a joyful being makes their merriment into life’s knowledge, internalizing the principles of happiness, living them even when life’s circumstances don’t arrange themselves so happily.

So, I can leader you, motivate you, convenience and strengthen you on your tour when you feel susceptible, poor or lost. But I can’t cause inside of you what you haven’t created.

As my child, I want “whats best for” you. And happiness is certainly best for you. But it can only be developed , not gifted , not established from nothing , not spouted into you like so much water spewed into a flask.

But there’s another reason I care so much about how happy you are.

2. Happiness is more than an emotional good; Happiness is a moral good.

Here’s the truth no one likes to say out loud: Happy people are more likely to be good people.

Happy beings tend to be more patient and adoration, more generous, granting and kind.

Happy people are better children and better mothers than their sad equivalents. They are more likely to be better employers and employees, better grandparents, friends and neighbors.

Happy parents, for example, don’t yell at their children as much. They are more patient, spend more time with them and are kinder to their children than chilled, watchful, annoyed or chronically angry parents.

Happy parents have the feeling wherewithal to be in the moment with and for their teenagers, enjoying them, focused on them, teaching them, desiring them, forgiving them, being patient with their missteps, overlooking their idiosyncrasies, celebrating their accomplishments, creating a safe place for them to fall down, mess things up and otherwise falter on their practice to mastery, increase, growth and maturity.

It’s not that sad parties are bad people, mind you, but that they do not have the psychological attendance to respond effectively with stymie circumstances.

And so happy people are more likely to raise happier children who will more likely than not, cause happier children in turn, who then will have a greater likelihood of living more honoring lives doing more good to more people.

I hope you can now clearly construe the link, that joy is more than a happiness thing. It’s more than feelings. It’s more than a question that simply alters your emotional state. It’s more than a personal issue of the heart.

It’s a moral question. It’s a character publication.

Happiness feigns how we foresee and how we act. It affects our relationships, our productivity and our ability to see and care about the needs of others.

Unhappy beings are paradoxically destroyed with themselves, which is an inherently selfish behavior to live. The nature revolves around them, their feelings, how others are treating them, how others are responsible for their unhappiness.

Happy people, on the other hand, are more giving, more compassionate, more humanitarian, and more loving.

People treat others worse when they are unhappy. They give others better “where theyre” filled with joy.

It is easier being married to a happy party than a depressed or furious one. It is easier being the son or daughter of a joyful papa than it feels like to an annoyed father.

Homes are filled with an entirely different spirit when parents are fulfilled, satisfied, self-confident, adoring and kind–all components of a happy life.

There is, therefore, a moral obligation I place on you to seek out happiness, to search for the principles upon which happiness is the natural outcome, and to actively work to develop those attributes and characteristics within you.

A Nudge, Not a Judgement

Please don’t interpret this letter as a guilt trip. I know that some will. But I can’t hide the truth because some may read into it what I never intended.

This is a letter of motivation. It is a map that locates your pleasure at its center. It is a ignited in the flash darkness boldly has declared that life was never meant to stay dark.

It is a nudge in the right direction, one that accepts the reality of life–that happiness topics tremendously, that your pleasure problems tremendously, and that it matters because I care about you and because I care about those who treated with you.

And so I miss you to be happy for your own sake … and for others’.

Now to Help

But as you seek joy, don’t forget that I am here to guide you along the way.

I will develop the path to happiness as you step out into the dimly ignite track that should contribute to it. I will arouse you and uplift you and remind you and take you by the hand to lead you to more happiness than you ever judged possible.

Have faith in Me and you will find the power to have more faith in yourself.

It’s Your Mountain to Climb

But you have to do the sauntering. You is therefore necessary to do the climbing. You can’t pray for happiness, then sit on the couch watching TV until I came to see you your figurehead door and handwriting you the gift.

It can’t work that way.

But as you develop the traits that create pleasure, you’ll realize you would never absolutely crave it in any other way.

It will take slog. Sometimes you will want to give up. Your soul may throb. Your mind may hurt. Your soul may choke for air.

But remember, your route to gaiety is take you through bumpy province, on a expedition to self-discovery, self-mastery, and self-development. You are forging a reputation. And attribute is exclusively ultimately forged in the furnace of enormous heat.

I will lighten your encumbrance as you trying to reach me and ask for guidance, but your spiritual and moral and emotional muscles must be exercised, developed and strengthened as you do the work of happiness.

Please don’t be too deterred as you do that work, because it is work. Just as physical muscles don’t grow over night, so emotional maturity, spiritual awareness, persona growing, and delight take time too.

So be patient and take it a pace at a time.

A Promise

In the end, as you follow more gaiety by developing greater perseverance, enjoy, forgiveness and kindness, find more purpose and meaning in your life, and replenish your thoughts will gratitude, the door to your gaiety will open.

You will then understand the gleaming of sunlight. And then you will be able to open what may have been locked or only partially seen by you before. Then the door to delight will be flung open widely. Then you will see clearly what you have been missing all along.

And then you will be truly, genuinely, seriously happy.

I care passionately about your prosperity. Now you know why. I hope that matters to you. But most importantly, I hope that members can do something about it.

I’ll be waiting behind that opening for you when you come knocking.

With more Love than you can imagine, Father.
