“Happiness manifests from within – happiness does not manifest from without.”

Big, new, shiny things can’t fill the void

In our modern-day world, it is common for many to believe that acquiring as many physical objects as possible, big ones, shiny ones, and costly ones will ultimately bring them true and lasting happiness in their life. While they pursue these objects to a near feverish pitch, they never realize that acquiring these objects alone can never fill the void of unhappiness that they suffer from.

Do not depend upon things to manifest long-lasting happiness

Their state of mind and thus, their vibratory state should not depend upon the material goods that they have or have not accumulated to the present moment. In fact, happiness in our present physical form can never be sustained by the acquisition of physical objects. Rather, it is the pursuit of living in the moment in the presence of positive thoughts and positive feelings which can manifest true happiness.

Live in the moment 

Our benevolent Source has given each and every one of us the choice as to how we live in the moment; we can focus upon positive thoughts and positive feelings which manifest a positive vibratory state that ultimately results in true happiness.

We create our own prison walls…that can’t be seen 

Or, we can focus upon negative thoughts and feelings which manifest a negative state that can only create prison walls to keep our unhappiness locked-in and our happiness locked-out. Both states can never exist in the same physical space and at the same temporal moment. And fortunately, happiness is stronger than unhappiness and unhappiness will always be conquered by happiness.

There is a bridge between the visible and invisible worlds 

There exists within us an invisible world and there exists without us a visible world. Faith in the invisible world holds much promise for us as we visualize lofty dreams and magnificent goals, peace and tranquility, happiness and joy. Belief in the outer world holds little promise for us and can manifest as crushed dreams and vanquished goals, unrest and disharmony, sadness and despair.

We control our inner world 

Yet, it is our control over our inner world which creates an outer world of happiness and the division of the two can manifest as one if we use the power of the Source as a bridge between the two.

Where are you building your castle? 

The castles we build on the inside lead to true happiness – the castles we build on the outside do not lead to true happiness. As we envision our spiritual castles, created from hope and faith and gratitude, we begin to view happiness and the manifestation of happiness in its true light. Happiness is the supreme form of freedom. Happiness is the supreme form of lightness.

Happiness is love…love is happiness

Happiness is the supreme form of love. When we begin to understand what happiness brings to our physical life, we surround our Self with happiness, we surround our Self with harmony, we surround our Self with the Source, and we experience what life is like from the Creator’s view of the universe.  As we enjoy happiness, more happiness will be drawn to us since like attracts like.

Happiness manifests from within…not from without

If you do not focus upon happiness, you cannot attain happiness. If you do not act towards happiness you cannot attain happiness. If you do not decide upon happiness, you cannot attain happiness. However, it is an eventuality to manifest happiness from within and it all begins with your thoughts and your feelings. When you focus upon, act towards, and decide to be happy in your life, and it does not depend upon your material possessions, you will become happy.

“Success can be narrowed down to just a few simple tasks: reading, thinking, and acting.”

xmcothgncqa-joshua-sortinoSuccess does not manifest from luck, chance, or fate

We all long for success, yet, most of us believe that success is some mysterious, hard-to-reach place which only a few fortunate ones every get to experience in their lifetime because of their luck, chance, or fate.

Success can be achieved by everyone…just follow the Natural Laws

The good news is that we can attain what we want in life since our success is subject to a set of Natural Laws that are precise and concise as any other mathematical law. And when one is aware of how the Laws work and how they truly favor our success, we can and must achieve what we set out to attain in our life without having to rely upon a stroke of good luck or a twist of fate.

The path to success can be straightforward, not complicated

When we think about our success, the means to arrive at that wonderful place in life can be narrowed down to a set of tasks which will change the direction of your life. These simple, but, effective tasks include reading, thinking, and doing. They appear to be simple and straightforward, without the complexities and mystery of other ideas, nonetheless, if you follow these ideas faithfully, they will manifest incredible changes in your life.

Take the first step…reading

The first step in our journey of success is reading. Reading can and will set you on the correct road to success. When you read a book about others’ success, it provides possibilities in your own life. The person you develop into in the future is a result of the books you read today. There is no better way to start your journey of achievement. Honestly create a plan to read and faithfully follow your personal plan for success.

Your thoughts determine your success 

The next step is thinking where your results, good or bad, originate from. There is no getting away from the fact that your thoughts and your thoughts alone determine the success you achieve in your life.

Don’t let the bad weeds conquer your mind

We are the creators in a universe that always manifests what we think about. Thus, meditate regularly and visualize daily to achieve your goals and like a careful gardener, do not let the weeds of bad thought enter your mind. Be vigilant to keep fear, hate, and envy out of your mind.

The final step…acting upon what you’ve read and thought about

Finally, we reach the last of the three steps in my simple plan for success, acting. While we can read and think about our success all we want, in the end, we must be prepared to do something to help us reach our lofty goals.

You don’t need to know your path to success beforehand, the right one shall manifest itself to you…at the right moment

It is not necessary to plan every step of the way, rather, the Source will provide the guidance necessary to achieve our end goal. In fact, if we keep asking ourselves how to reach our goals, we are asking the wrong question and will only have our desires pushed farther away from us. Instead, rely upon the Source to provide what you need to do to achieve success. Listen to your inner voice for the path to personal achievement.

Success is within each person’s grasp…

Reaching success in your life is not a far-fetched dream which only a few ever manage to get to, it is at the fingertips of each and every one of us, it is just our own sense of awareness that brings it to us or our lack of awareness that keeps it at arm’s length from us. Follow these few simple techniques to reach the heights of success that each of us is entitled to receive from our benevolent Creator.

“Fulfillment occurs when you conquer your inner world; fulfillment does not occur when you conquer your outer world.”

photo-1416331108676-a22ccb276e35Material wealth doesn’t necessarily lead to happiness

In modern times, while we appear to have greater material wealth than in the past, these kinds of riches do not guarantee a greater sense of happiness, security, and fulfillment. You only need to look at the rate of suicide, substance abuse, and a myriad of forms of self-destructive behavior to understand that material wealth is not directly associated with spiritual wealth. This is not a promotion for Money is Bad – that is not my intention, rather, the love of material goods at the expense of your spirituality is the issue.

Does history repeat itself? 

Even though we may face these tragedies in our world, humankind appears to be on a similar path which we witness from almost a century ago. In the 1920’s, eight of the richest financiers in the USA controlled a greater share of the countries’ money than the government.

Wealth can lead you down two paths 

This powerful and wealthy group consisted of a Who’s Who from the time including presidents of banks, securities firms, and Wall Street as well as the President’s Cabinet member. While they were wealthy in the early part of the 20th century, within a mere two decades, these public figures suffered greatly: Leo Fraser committed suicide; Arthur Cutton died penniless; Charles Schwab died bankrupt; Jesse Livermore killed himself, Howard Hopson went insane; Richard Whitney a prisoner in Sing Sing Penitentiary, Ivar Krueger died a suicide; and Albert Fall earned early release from prison to die at home. In spite of their tremendous wealth, these men died either by than own hand or insolvent. While they clearly understood how to accumulate wealth, they did not understand how to live fulfilled.

Negativity manifests from disharmony

When we only focus upon material wealth…the demons of self-importance, self-indulgence, self-deprecation, and self-destruction can accompany us along the way. These negative thoughts can then result in disharmony and negative vibrations which do us physical as well as spiritual harm.

Positive vibrations manifest harmony

On the other hand, when you pursue loftier goals first, you are filled with self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-love which results in positive vibrations that support wellness in your physical and spiritual realms.

Conquer your spiritual world for true happiness and fulfillment

Conquering your physical world does not and will not provide the balance in your life which leads to lasting and joyous fulfillment. Conquering your spiritual world does and will provide the true balance in life which leads to lasting and joyous fulfillment.
