Simple Methods to Be Happier, Part 3

As humans we collectively experience unease and perpetuate unhappiness, even endangering ourselves, but there are some very realistic ways to turn this trend around. More than ever, there is an awakening in the world of our ability and opportunity to improve our condition, our happiness and our success by changing our concept of this very moment in terms of spiritual awareness. It’s not about religion or beliefs. It’s about changing our mind and changing our behaviors in the present moment to help us make those improvements. Being human we still let the ego dominate our thinking and experience complications and emotional issues. Change starts with one person reconnecting with their inner happiness and Real Self, which helps all the rest of us do the same. 

Here are 3 more ways to boost your happiness now.

1. Release false beliefs about yourself. Negative ego traits, like anger, jealousy, resentment, and hatred, hurt. They not only hurt you, they hurt others. They are not part of the Real You, and the sooner you release them the happier you will be. Align with your Soul Powers, like enthusiasm, conscious awareness, sincerity and love. Read more in this website about Releasing False Beliefs about Yourself.  

2. Balance your life. When we take care of our self it helps everyone else too, especially our family. As an individual – You are body, mind, emotions and spirit, and you will be healthier and happier when you balance those in your activities.

*BODY: Exercise your body through sports, walking or something you enjoy, because it does great things like helping reduce stress. Get  enough sleep and eat balanced meals. Do what is appropriate for your health. You’ll feel better. 

**MIND: Ignorance is the main reason we are in the condition we are in now! That, along with pride and impatience. Strive to know Yourself; the Lightbearers’ Motto is: ‘Know thyself and thou shalt know All.’ All the Great Teachers of humanity have said the same thing. You are working on that right now! 

***EMOTIONS: Learn to appreciate beauty in the arts, nature and people – that is using the mind and heart! Release false beliefs about yourself and instead focus on your inner divine qualities like compassion, caring and goodwill. 

****SPIRIT: Most importantly, give attention each day to your spiritual nature and bring it to the surface of your thinking and activities. Consider daily meditation for 20 minutes because it can enhance your mindful awareness and help you relate to your True Self.

3. Foster your conscious connection with the Great Principle. Start your day out optimistically by cultivating gratitude, and also end your day optimistically by strengthening your conscious connection with the Great Principle. Make a declaration of Truth and leave behind all the false beliefs and troubles you may have encountered during the day. For at least 3 weeks, just before falling asleep, mentally realize and feel your connection to the Great Principle and manifest it physically by softly saying something similar to:

 “I am Spirit and Matter, proceeding from and unceasingly connected to the Eternal, manifesting all the same Powers of Energy, Intelligence, Truth and Love.  Thank you.”

Next week we will be discussing What Not to Do! with the help of the Great Law. Until then, consider enacting some of the methods for a happier life and reflecting on this quote:

“… whenever we realize that we are a part of that One Life, we have then all the benefit of all the Forces and the Eternity of the One Life. But whenever we feel separate from that Life, then we lose our strength, and are at the mercy of circumstances, of fate; just as a little drop of water which is thrown out of the ocean and lies there alone on the sand … ” 

Eugene Fersen, Science of Being, page 30.

Simple Methods to Be Happier, Part 1

No one is happy all the time. We chase happiness because, while we may have it for a time, it is fleeting. We set an ideal, reach it and when our happiness fades we set a new ideal. Or, we may have been in a state of contentment and then something happened at work or home and we become unsettled due to negative circumstances or ego traits, which can trigger a tailspin.

However, the majority of our happiness is determined by our choices – that is, our choices of thoughts and behaviors.

There are some simple ways you can develop more awareness of your innate inner happiness.

 1. Choose Love

 We may say all we want is to be happy, yet what we truly want is Love. We want to be conscious of being loving and being loved; of knowing Love.

It’s the feeling of Love that changes things for us. When you choose to think, feel and express love in all that you do, like being consciously friendly, caring and considerate, the more you become conscious of Universal Love and your innate happiness.

The feeling of genuine love is the soul manifesting Universal Love as substance. However, when you choose to pervert love and generate fear-based emotions, it is still substance, but physically manifests in your life negatively as illness and problems. The subconscious perverts and reverses the power of Love, therefore you see and experience everything upside down. You feel separate and apart from everyone and everything, especially the Great Principle and Universal Love.

As you come to feel and express love more in your relationships and life you become more aware of Universal Love, and this will lead to the conclusion there is only one choice and that is for Love and happiness.

2. Cultivate gratitude

Start your day out optimistically by consciously stating 3 different things every morning that you are grateful for. Try this for 21 days at least! That’s the amount of days it takes for most of us to establish new brain patterns or habits with repeated daily practice.

You are creating substance, chemistry in the brain, to construct these new patterns with the power of Universal Love and Universal Mind. Therefore, if you consciously practice it every day for 21 days you will have created an optimistic attitude, or at least the start of one!

Gratitude (and optimism) has a vibration of love that attracts more reasons to be grateful and happy because it activates the Law of Attraction! It can also help you be more conscious of your Inner Love and more receptive to Universal Love. When you realize that you are part of Universal Love and emotionally feel it then you are physically, mentally and emotionally creating change in yourself and also helping others.

3. Practice Relaxation and Silence

 If you spend 5 to 10 minutes daily releasing the tenseness of the body and the constant monkey chatter in your thinking you can change the frequency of your brain energy.

The busy, busy vibrations of the human world can cause the brain to overload and your thinking can get habitually lost in circumstances or egotistic energies of negativity and fear. Those few minutes of Relaxation and Silence are a relief and you begin to feel free and peaceful. You are freeing yourself from the ego and it’s traits based in fear.

That feeling of freedom and peace are qualities of Love, and they can open you to new vistas in your attitude and behaviors that materialize in your life as happiness and love. Very simple to do and very effective!

We will continue with more ways to help you be happier next time, with the help of the Great All.
