Divine Happiness

No thing or person outside you has the power to make you happy or unhappy.  Whether you are aware of it or not it is you and only you who can decide to be happy or unhappy, that is, whether or not you will cling to your attachments.  An attachment is an emotional state of clinging caused by the false belief that without something or someone you cannot be happy.  So to be happy, all you need to do is drop your attachments and you will, quite naturally, begin to enjoy what has always already been within you: the Mystery of God.  Your oneness with God begins to become more real the more you let go of all the obstacles – read here, attachments – to happiness within you.  And, letting go of your attachments is a delightful task!  All that is needed is to open your eyes and see that you really do not need this thing or that person or whatever opinion to be happy.  To do this is to follow Jesus’ teaching: “lose your life and you will find it.”
