Isn’t it true that you can have all it takes to truly be happy and yet be completely miserable? So many of us do not see the treasures within our midst. Even if pointed out by another we scoff and look away, looking then towards those things we believe we are lacking. Getting everything we want in this material realm does not assure contentment in this life. How tragic for those of us who devote so much of our time and energy chasing this lie!
What happens when we achieve it all? The twisted game continues as there is always more… bigger house in a better neighborhood, the promotion at work, the prestigious award, the higher-end car, the more exotic vacation, smaller waistline, better health, better looks, a more doting spouse, well-behaved and appreciative children, and on and on and on… and yet, those things never will satisfy beyond the moment.
God is with us in our midst waiting to take our hands and show us what true life is all about. It is not what we have in our grasp or in our possession but what we give to the world! Our happiness lies in contentment with what God has given us for this day as our daily bread as we reach out in faith to feed our brothers. God wants us to know that we already have enough, and those needs we are lacking He will provide when we look towards Him.
The letting go of our ambitions is never easy because the lie is strong. It taunts us and tempts us away from our happiness. We fear letting go and falling into the depths of despair! That’s why this message is so important: you have all you need in this moment to be happy.
Let go of the lie and look around at what you have… the many, many blessings. This is where true happiness is, it is when we realize what we have in this life matters not! Our biggest treasure is beyond what most of us can see, touch or feel! The basis of true happiness and peace flows outwards from our souls in the form of the love-infused life-energy of the Divine! This is where happiness lies… within the God-sparked love in our hearts.
