Everyone is curious about what really causes happiness and makes you feel good. And, whether he (or she) can have a slice, every day! And….if we wish to enjoy a symphony of attention from a bunch of caring people, and a harmony of happy sounds during our lifetime, then we must avoid acting like dark horses, saving up our emotions….

Why?

This is an excellent question.

But, I think a better one is…

Why not?

Using your talent, hobby or profession in a way that makes you contribute to something good to this world, is truly the way to find happiness. And for greater joys and deeper emotions, let’s not try to follow trends…why not, create them?  Saying thanks to the world, and acknowledging your own accomplishments, is a great way to feel good and stay positive, every day of life.

Try and see this world, through the eyes of love and you will feel that things of interest become so beautiful. And, on the contrary, if you must see through the eyes of hate…. things will really look ugly. In everyday life, we are pushing away from feelings that we condemn as wrong, painful, or ugly. We hardly realize that in doing so, we are also pushing away from positivity —the very energy that can bring us incredible joy and ecstasy.

All those who may indulge in hatred, for whatever reasons must hold onto the lies they tell themselves— just in order, to feel good. But then do only what you cherish is good and acceptable. This will help you to keep shining, because that’s what you’re good at and it is that hard work, which makes you feel good with an added sense of fulfillment. Because, in doing so you are sure to accomplish something that will reward you with a sense of joy.

In life, I feel that there is nothing that we like to do, that works out for the worst— and which won’t work out for the better. The choice is entirely yours. In the pursuit of happiness and fulfillment, you will know exactly what you need to do.

As we progress in life and age, we like to indulge ourselves into such pursuits of the life-long ‘learner’. This will enable us to keep discovering new and exciting things, about our own selves.

One of my early school teachers, Mr. Nalini Sarker, during an informal meeting, had put his heavy hand on my shoulder, for comfort. He then reminded me: each one of us has a book inside, so why not make your life a great story? I think I listened to him rather intently. Even today, those magic words still resonate loudly in my consciousness.

Obviously, the feeling of guilt dims our light. Therefore, instead of dimming our light to make others feel more comfortable, why shouldn’t we continue to shine and foster the rise of the vibrations of those around us? This is one suggestion that merits your overall consideration.

Being Happy and Feeling Good does not mean we lack in ourselves a sense of compassion, particularly when you see some people living in discomfort, disability or in misery, around you. It simply means you won’t dim your light to make them feel comfortable – instead, you’re going to help light that way, all along. Have this faith in yourself!

At first, the light that you emit through your personality may be a bit too bright for others and it may hurt their eyes, yet it’s far better to shine rather than to turn off your light. When you shield your light for too long, it will likely extinguish itself and you may slip right back into darkness…unable to find your own direction, until someone with another ‘shine’ comes along to light your way and then helps you to find the light you still possess, within your soul.

We are our own best teachers. One way to follow our daily bliss is to let our inner guidance system to imagine and acknowledge all our blessings. This determines the criteria of our day, which is JOY. It puts us in tune with the positive constructive energy and raises our vibration. Making a conscious decision to create our day; and to enjoy feeling good. All this takes some good practice, but the end result is always worthwhile.

In order to live fully we need to be guided by the reality of ecstasy, held inside us—perhaps even more than the maintenance of our daily dose of monotony.

We must all feel good when we help others because a small part within us remembers and connects to the knowledge that we are all one….

The human mind is a wonderful organ, the better you feel, the more you can access new realities. We need never to forget that feeling wonderful inside, is a massive magnet that may attract greater magic of joys.

It’s true that overly negative people actually fear letting go of their negativity, and the reason: because it has become a part of their identity. If this is the case, why not make it a smoother transition in everyday life, by releasing and replacing one negative opinion, at a time. This certainly will look like an identity shift, but it’s one that will bring greater fulfillment and life satisfaction.

Let’s not forget that it is a wonderful world that exists above the clouds. Most of us who have flown in airplanes, will understand what I am trying to say!
