Do you ever stop and take a breath? Just ‘be’?
Time flies past so quickly and suddenly, you may realise that everything is past!
Are you doing what you love with people you love in a place you love to be?
What makes you happy can also fill your life with meaning. I recently met a young woman who has been on a long long journey to being happy. She was at the point of ending her life, writing letters (thinking ‘ah this will really hurt her/him to read…’) and something compelled her to open a message on her email. It was a call to action. A call to fly across the world and meet a new teacher, a Master of Life, Don Miguel Ruiz.
During this transformation, her mentor would say, ‘Are you happy… or stupid?’
If she was not happy, then it must be because she is stupid! ‘How does this help me?’ she would sneer…
Now she knows. We have so much to be grateful for, just to be alive. If we are not happy then we must be stupid.
There is so much on offer here in this living state, in a human suit.
Even the Dalai Lama says, ‘Be happy.’ If we are unhappy, and we can change it, then we should. If we are unhappy and we can’t change a situation, then don’t worry about it because we are doing everything we can, so just be happy. Does this make sense?
My wish for you today, and every day, is for you to be grateful that you are so happy.
