7 Steps to Happiness

7steps-happiness

The purpose of life is to experience happiness. Relationships are for sharing happiness.

Happiness is the eternal nature of the soul. it is not something that I have to earn but something I discover within the self.

The secrets to happiness:

  • Take advantage of every opportunity to give happiness to others through kindness in your thoughts, words and actions.
  • Live in the present moment and make the most of what you have now.
  • Let the past be the past. It cannot be changed no matter how much I re-think it.
  • Never hold on to anything or anyone. Change is a part of life, it can never remain the same.
  • Check your intentions. If I have a needy nature and always want to gain something from a situation or person, then I will never be able to hold on to happiness.
  • Don’t waste time looking at the weaknesses and mistakes of others. They are not in your control.
  • Appreciate and care for yourself. Remember that at the core you are a really lovely person.

Take another step towards happiness today!

 

Om Shanti

Living in the NOW!

now

Live in the present moment and remain content with now.

Thinking of and holding on to the past will only fill the mind and heart with regrets about what could have been.

Living in the future reminds me of what I still need to achieve and thus what I do not have at his time.

Stand in the present moment, live it with all your heart as if it is your last moment. Value the time, value the people and value the life that you have.

Live in the Now!

Om Shanti

Past is Past

past-is-past

‘Let the past be the past’. We have heard this saying a million times but we continue to hold onto the past in our hearts and minds. Subconsciously we may believe it is valuable experience for our future. However recalling negative experiences from the past in this way has become an unwanted and damaging habit.

By bringing the past into the present we become influenced by it. Then, instead of resolving the past we build on it. Instead of recognising the mistakes we made, so as to avoid doing the same again, we fill our minds with the mistakes others made and respond based on that. In this way we carry the past into our present, and so into our future.

If we mix the past into the present, then this becomes the key that locks the intellect. It disables our ability to discern clearly, without influence.
We need to finish the past in the present moment by stepping back from the scene as soon as it happens. If within a moment we become detached then we free ourselves from influence and we will be able see the scene from a different perspective. This will allow us to then respond from a fresh and new space.

Have the power to let go and move on.

 

Om Shanti

Camera of the Eyes

The eyes are constantly drawing in information. I then experience this as it translates into my thoughts and feelings.

The translation I receive, and thus the experience I am left with, is very much coloured by my vision, attitude and past experiences.

This aspect of the ‘past experiences’ becomes a very real gauge in how I respond to the scenes happening around me. Yet they are only my perception of what happened. It may have been my fault but the habit of seeing faults in others is so strong that I am not able to see anything else. I focus on the negative and store it in my memory bank, associating it with the person and place.

Once stored, it will remain there ready to influence the next scene that happens. If I realised how much impact todays experiences will have on my tomorrows then I would change the focus to see more positively.

What is the camera of the eyes focusing on? What pictures is it taking and holding within its memory bank which will influence me tomorrow?

Om Shanti
