Every day, I look for inspiration for my meditation/prayer and this blog. Today I travelled to Scotland, I’ve not been personally but my sister and nephew have, both have come back with stories and pictures of a magical place.
People universally tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will maybe descend upon you like fine weather if you are fortunate enough. But that’s not how happiness works. Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it…
This was my next find.
Being at Peace
and being who you are … that is
Being yourself … are one.
Your only opportunity to be at peace
Make peace with the present moment…
The secret in life, of success and happiness
is to be ONE with life…
Life is the dancer, and you are the dance.
I love being open to what the day will bring my way. Sometimes I’m ready for it, other times I may not be, but how wonderful it is that from day-to-day a new canvas, new opportunities appear. In everything we strive to do, maintain makoto (sincerity) in your heart, the Universe/God will see you through today and beyond. Always and Forever.
