How to be really happy

We are all seeking to be happy. But somehow it seems like utopia. Well, here’s news. You can be 100% happy. The caveat: Limit your desires. I’m not saying do not have any desires. Otherwise we won’t be able to move ahead. All I’m saying is weed out those desires which seem impractical, for e.g: you want to go to Mars and see how it feels like. Be practical, it’s not going to happen in the near future.

Yes, if you want to be rich, that’s a valid desire. Who doesn’t? If you want happiness and peace for the world, yes, that is also achievable. However, remember that the most important part of manifesting a desire is to work hard towards making it a reality. Just making a wish is akin to day dreaming. It won’t materialize without you taking steps towards it.

And the journey begins with the first step. Walk one mile and God walks 100 miles towards you. God is not somebody who is going to punish you. Never ! He is always your benefactor, however bad your experiences might have been. Maybe you have done something terrible. Let it go. God will never ever banish you. He is your best friend. And as friends are, they forgive your misgivings.

But you have to improve. Do not repeat it. Learn the lesson and then let go. Divert your mind to the positive aspects of life. Do something good like helping a person. If God gives you more strength help as many people as you can. I remember a poem (don’t recollect the author)
If I have helped a fainting Robin
Walk unto it’s nest again
I haven’t live in vain.
You just need to spread your smile to one person. And may God give you strength to spread it to others also, I want you to know that you are a very special person in God’s eyes. No matter what others or you, yourself think about you. May God bless you with Health, Wealth and Happiness.

Always …
