What i often hear from students ,life coaches and all manner of folk is that human Happiness /Joy/Bliss,..has now reached the status of some kind of emotional” achievment” ,..something that requires a strategy and strong planning,possibly a weekend seminar, extra educational studies,a new government,.or a choice of the many Gurus presently trawling their divine net of Blessings across the planet,promising everything that their particular doorway too enlightenment can bestow up us lesser mortals ?!Since it was realised that most of us are caught up within a society whose increasingly fast pace of life has left so many deeply stressed,depressed, isolated and lonely,”happiness”has morphed itself into some kind of emotional Caviar,and has, become a place where a healthy profit can be extrapolated from the more naive and unsuspecting souls amongst us,..but let me say this,”happiness”exists way beyond any human rationalisation ,.and therefore lays beyond “causality” itself,i.e.,one cannot “cause” the sun to shine ,.but when the clouds have blown away the sun just shines as a consequence of the clouds not being in the way,..and in the same manner we cannot cause happiness,..because happiness is what we essentially are(the health that is currently keeping your heart beating right now arises out a life supporting system that has to be in the affirmative to fully function)and so when we put the source of love/happiness outside of ourselves,. it places us all in an extremely vulnerable position,.so whats the ANSWER YOU CRY OUT?!?!(and while i am hacking on about this stuff,. how come a baby laying in its mothers arms,.knows how to BE happy,when it cant even read or write, walk or talk,and hasnt even followed a Guru,or seen a therapist,or joined a study group???),..Oh yes, so what is the answer,… ok try this,..GO AND MAKE SOMEONE ELSE HAPPY,.i guarantee you will feel happy,.because you cant achieve happiness or go after it directly,happiness is an internal “pay off” ,emotion,for making a difference ,and by virtue of these selfless acts one removes the clouds that cover our own shining hearts,and as our hearts open,.life itself opens..and hey presto,. we feel HAPPY(i mean go and follow a Guru if you like, or even if your presently suffering from a bad attack of religion,and are deeply entrenched into handing over the responsibilities for your existence to others,realise this,its all about you(scary stuff!!) ,not a polotician not a religious leader,not even God,.just the unlimited, wonderful,magical, incredible YOU!!!)…so remember this “If your Happy nothing else matters and if your not Happy nothing else matters” Peace!
