Unplug yourself, and plug in your Self

We all want to be happy … I think that is basically a given, right? The real dispute comes about because of different ideas for how that happiness is attained. Some believe their road to happiness is the only road, and that everyone else must follow that road … that could be true for religion, money, relationships, families, dreams, and so much more.  Well … they’re all wrong.

Happiness … true, pure, ecstatic, contented JOY … comes from God … from knowing God intimately, being in relationship with God, and having the peaceful assurance that you are exactly who and where God wants you to be.

When you reach that place … you are happy.  That’s it.  You could be dirt poor, single, or any other combination of the above listed statuses … it wouldn’t matter. If you lived your life by trusting in God, and followed wherever God prompted you … got your inner fulfillment from God each and every day?  You would be happy.

Conversely, you can be fabulously rich, and have a family that is the envy of everyone around … and if you aren’t getting fulfillment from a relationship with God … there is a part of you that is empty … a hole that you can’t seem to pile enough things into to fill it up.

So how do you reach that place??  Is it really that easy??!!  You just start focusing on God, and BOOM, you’re happy???  That’s kind of silly!  Well, it is and it isn’t.  Just by making the decision on one day to start focusing on God … that is not going to make you happy for the rest of your life … no, of course not.

However, if you do it on a daily basis … spend that time connecting with God, and being fulfilled by God … you will find that all sorts of old patterns start unraveling like an ill fitting sweater when you keep pulling the yarn.  Suddenly you will see how you were really preventing yourself from being happy all along … by trying to MAKE yourself happy.  All the things you are doing to will happiness into your life … are getting in the way of what will actually bring you happiness … true happiness … God.

God IS Love … and how can Happiness and Love do anything but coexist??

So take the time, each and every day … for however long you feel that you can … even if you feel stupid, or like you don’t know what you are doing … I guarantee it will put you on the road to Happiness … whatever your the outer aspects of your life may look like.

Unplug yourself from all the many things that are siphoning off your energy … and plug your Inner Self into GOD … talking about an Energy Source!!

This post was the result of my meditation on my prior post, “You are what you are capable of becoming“.

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
