In a strange and strong place today, it has been a wonderful day so far, walked with my lovely neighbours our dogs came too, the weather is cold, sunny and no wind. I haven’t done much else.
A day for reflection
Over the past few years I’ve been busy, busy, busy; today the weather is kind but cold, ideal for reflection. Autumn is the time that the forests expose their vulnerability after the hubris of spring and summer, a time for the forests to reflect on their glory and rest awhile to regain their strength for the next season of growth. I’m in the mood to reflect today, enjoy the glories of last spring, summer and autumn, so I can move on to the next part of my journey.
So what is the next part of my journey?
Haven’t a clue.
I may not have a clue but I certainly have an intention, My intention is to be happy and pass my secrets of being happy onto others. I’ve discovered that we all have the capacity to be happy but many don’t know where to start to find their authentic happiness. Many play at it and once the play is over they return to being a grump again. Authentic happiness shines through everything, a quality of calmness, groundedness, presence, joyfulness.
We can all play at being happy but playing at it isn’t authentic and others just know and it losses its power and contagiousness. When someone is really happy those around them also start to become happy, I guess some will fight it for a while or just leave. Some people consider for some reason that it is not right and proper for themselves to be happy: life is joyless, a grudge and that’s how it should be.
Not for me, I discovered the secret.
The secret is being all joined up, I have some bad points and I’m happy with them as well as all my good points. I’m me and I’m in the moment, oops, that’s part of the secret.
Being all joined up, I know what I mean, it is a thought I have. It’s when my thoughts converge into one, it’s the point of ease, it’s the point of choice, it’s the point of happiness.
Being all joined up has taken me sometime to discover, in fact years and years, I used to be the person that thought life was joyless and a grudge, you don’t have to with that long, just subscribe to my mailing list and you will start getting regular ideas to try and practice to discover your authentic happiness.
