SUCCESSFULLY HAPPY

Society defines success in terms of winning awards, excelling at school/university/sports/games, climbing the career ladder fast, earning a lot of money, having many acquaintances and being known by many or even better: to become famous. And the majority of people are following this creed because they are believing that to be successful would bring them a kind of lasting happiness. But, of course, this is not true because outward success is transitory due to the law of continual change. Therefore, to believe in worldly success and to make it your aim of existence simultaneously engenders fear and feeds the already existing fear in your being because deep down you instinctively know that your success does not last forever. All the same, there are some who walk through life apparently always being successful. And yet, by the latest when their time of death is coming close, they will be forced to realize that true happiness is an expression of the heart and can only be gained inwardly. And if you look at the eyes of so-called "successful and happy" people you know that their happiness is only superficial and does not touch their hearts because their gaze is bleakly empty and their smiles look like dead masks.
So the equation is not: success equal happiness but actually the other way round: to be happy is to be successful in life. Because to keep your happiness alive and to feel and express it throughout the ups and downs of your personal existence does not come easy and has to be learned and mastered. True happiness is an inner state of being, a matter of the heart and is not related to outward circumstances. It puts a light to your eyes, which is giving a radiance to your smiles.

THE MAGIC OF YOU

If you can see the beauty of a single blade of grass you will perceive wonders wherever you go. If you can feel the power hidden inside each drop of water you will know yourself to be loved at any time. And if you are aware of your connection with God and His Creation at heart you will feel cherished and protected in any personal situation in life. All you have to do is to attune your awareness to the magic of Mother Nature and your own True Self.

AT HOME AT HEART

Because the Ego knows itself to be a transient sojourner in life and it is strenuously trying to find/keep/hold on to things and places where it is feeling itself at home and people with whom this can be experienced. Consequently, if you are living in the reality of your Ego-mind you have to be constantly exerting yourself to find and especially to keep your "homes", both on the physical as well as a mental-emotional level. And to cling to the people with whom you are connecting your idea of home. However, because life is forever changing, there will inevitably be times when the things, places and people you have known as your "homes" change, disappear or you have to leave them yourself.
If you do not wish to be unsettled by such occurrences any longer, simply change your mode of awareness and tune into the sphere of your Heart.
At the innermost core of your Heart you can experience your connection to the God Source and to His Unity of Creation. Therefore, if you are living in the reality of the Heart you are feeling at home and a sense of belonging no matter where you are, wherever you go and with whomever you are together in the exterior world.
