Happiness is the goal of goals… It is what we do everything in life to attain. It is the elixir of life… We want to be happy… It is at our very core… It is our deepest need for us to ‘live well.’ It is at the very centre of our wellbeing.
So it is kind of important to control!
People stop feeling they can attain happiness, or their ego has convinced them that something they did in their past means that they no longer deserve to have any future happiness, then they commit suicide…
Happiness and being happy is therefore really, really important stuff!It is also important to know that happiness is just a choice. So you can be happy in the depths of despair just like you can be happy in the most joyous moments of your life… Basically it is just a choice.
When happiness exists you cannot feel bad at the same time, happiness switches on the light and darkness cannot exist in the presence of light. So all you have to do is learn how to switch the light on anytime and anywhere.
When you learn how to be happy in life then you can choose happiness instead of allowing darkness in because you unconsciously chose that instead. As just because you chose it unconsciously does not mean that you did not choose it.
So just before I give you how to do this in an instant, here is the most important thing to remember… Darkness and light cannot exist at the same time in the same place. So if you spend a lot of time sitting in the dark, then here is your light switch.First you have to become aware… You have to notice that you are not happy and you have to remember that you have in your possession a switch that can turn on the light of happiness…
Don’t underestimate the power of this, don’t let its simplicity blind you as your ego likes keeping you in the darkness… So it can sense that what I am about to give you threatens its existence… So if you’ve had enough of feeling depressed and unhappy all of the time then I suggest you pay very close attention.
When you have noticed you are not happy then you can use this sentence to switch on a light … I suggest you use it when you feel depressed, angry or frustrated once or twice before you judge the worthiness of this tool I am about to give you, otherwise you are going to discard one of the crown jewels of mind control – By the way, judgement is weakness, observation is power… Something you may wish to consider.
When you are unhappy say to yourself, ‘I choose to be happy now.’
That’s all… Say it to yourself out loud now and feel the power of it if you can. I choose to be happy now.
Feel how it can instantly turn on the light of happiness. This is all you need to turn the feeling around in an instant and as I say, don’t underestimate the power of this because it is so simple.
This is just part of the law of least effort, where the simple easy techniques are the ones which produce the greatest results. If you want to see how powerful this is, just apply this today whenever you feel, angry, depressed, or just a little frustrated, as you may be present enough to remember to do it then.
See the power of it then come and read this again and you’ll be reading it with a different attitude, the next time you’ll be reading this knowing that this really works!
However, if you got it… and I mean you really got it!
That the power in those six small insignificant words really can change your life.

Everyone seems to strive to be ‘successful’ in life.
But what is ‘success’? What makes you successful, and what makes you a ‘failure’?
To answer this question, let’s first take a look at our world. Our societies are completely focused on our five senses of seeing, hearing, tasting, touching and smelling. Our five senses are constantly stimulated. They are enticed and exploited all the time.
It is therefore no surprise that we tend to focus our minds on materialism 24 hours per day. We tend to focus all the time on big cars, big houses, lots of money in the bank, and so on.
There is nothing wrong with that in itself. Neither does this mean that being ‘spiritual’ equals being poor and living in a dump. That doesn’t make sense either. The problem is not with the ‘material’ objects themselves.
Like I said, the trap is not with material objects themselves. These are just frequency patterns anyway. The problem comes when we see those objects as the ultimate goals and the very symbols of success that confirm whether we ‘made it’ in life or not.
It is for this reason that many people look to others to confirm to themselves if they are ‘doing well’ or if they are ‘successful’. When you don’t succeed in terms of big houses, big cars, big money, you are often considered as a ‘failure’, and often consider yourself as such.
The whole system thrives on consumption and the constant expansion of consumption, and the more we consume, the more we are considered to be ‘successful’. This even leads to many people borrowing more of what they don’t have and getting in even deeper trouble, simply to provide themselves the very things that should testify to others of their alleged ‘success’.
So is this the kind of ‘success’ you are looking for?
What if I told you that the real success you are looking for is not having all kinds of material stuff, but is actually called ‘happiness’?
After all, why would you want a lot of money, or a big house, or a big car? Why would you want others to approve of you?
In the end it all comes down to a desire for a sense of security and happiness, and being able to live life on your own terms. The quest ends when you’re happy and fulfilled.
But when are you happy and fulfilled?
Here’s a hint from what a wise man once said:
“Money and fame do not happiness make.”
Don’t get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with having a lot of money, or being well-known, or having big cars and big houses. These are all thought fields and are just experience. The problem is that so many people get absorbed in pursuing the material ‘dream’ that they forget about why they are doing that in the first place.
I believe it was John Harricharan who said this:
“Most people are so busy trying to make a living, they forget to make a life.”
He’s right. Most people are ‘human doings’ instead of ‘human beings’.
The funny thing is that the greatest payoff from trying to get what you want comes from a state of being. It is a state of happiness, contentment and love and gratitude for what IS that gets you what you truly want.
At any rate, the greatest payoff from your attraction efforts does certainly not come from an obsession with ever more material stuff in the merry-go-round that gets faster by the day, for the sole reason to seek approval and confirmation of your ‘success’ from others, in order to compensate for a lack of self-esteem that is the cause of this obsession to begin with.
A sense of security, self-esteem and ‘success’ is found within yourself, not outside.
And the funny thing is that once you give up the obsession with possession and finally acknowledge your true self, the person who you really are deep inside, you seem to manifest what you want much more easily.
When that happens, you can enjoy all kinds of material stuff as much as you like, if that’s what you choose. You can choose to have a big car if you like. You can choose to live in a big house if that’s what you want.
The difference is that you won’t be controlled by the never-ending pursuit of these things. You won’t be ‘on the path to happiness and success’ anymore. You would just BE happy instead, and from there you will allow things to manifest instead of chasing them forever. It’s a small difference in perception, but with profound effects.
It is then that you will start to live life, instead of life living you.
So what is ‘success’?
Success, my friend, is what you define it to be.
Now go manifest your success, whatever that is for you!
