Blissful Happiness Ensues

Allowing other people, or events, to negatively affect our own actions is one of the greatest day-to-day challenges we face. If you already have an open hearted, centered relationship with God these circumstances are merely bumps in the road … they can still be dangerous, however, if we are not careful to reestablish that connection each and every time.

For those who are struggling to understand and achieve a place of centeredness … life can be quite literally a minefield. Every step could lead to a potential explosion. Each day is spent reeling and hurtling from one concussive explosion to another. In such a place, every day is frightening … and the idea of being centered, or openhearted, is as foreign and ridiculous as a human being flapping their arms and flying off into the horizon.

I implore those of you feel that you are trapped in such a scenario to consider the idea that finding peace is not quite that ludicrous … it is possible.

For myself, I employ a simple grounding technique to filter outside energies. I have always been fairly sensitive and find myself picking up other people’s energy all day, every day … so I am literally doing this exercise many times a day.  It has become rote for me … so habitual that I don’t consciously realize I am doing it sometimes.

I envision a series of roots extending into the earth. The earth is God’s creation; a precious gift that is full of energy. I allow this gift of energy that God has given us to fill my space. Whatever energy is not mine, but rather is the energy of some intruding force (stuff someone else is sending my way, for example), I allow it to float away like the spores of a dandelion. I then concentrate on allowing that space to be filled with God’s Love.

Once this has been completed, I focus on opening my heart again, and I allow that loving energy to flow out of me.

When you are caught up in a state of reacting to the negative energies around you, you are living with your heart closed.  You can feel it if you pay attention … let’s say, for instance, you are blissfully daydreaming of something wonderful.  For that brief moment … you are happy.  Then something happens … someone confronts you, a car cuts in front of you, etc. … when that happens, just take notice of the way you reacted.  Your heart was WIDE open, and then suddenly the door to your heart was defensively slammed shut!

The ultimate goal is to get to the point where we never close our hearts to God … for anything.  When we do though, and it happens to the best of us, I find that the grounding exercise I described above helps me to find a place of being centered so that I can open my heart.  That is where Love is … and where Love is … blissful happiness ensues.

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.
