All this time, you have been searching for the answer. And here it is: Noticing the fun and joy that exists in your day leads to more joyful times coming your way.
Recognizing you have events to feel grateful for in the present moment leads to more events you appreciate. Acknowledging the peace that exists in each moment brings peaceful moments to your life.
Seeing the love already present in your life now brings more love to enjoy. Knowing you have prosperity brings more abundance to you.
Can’t you see? You hold the key. You and only you. Believe it. Take it. Reach out and take it.
Not because of what you will get, and not to control the future but because it feels better.
It feels good to feel good. And you have a choice.
This feeling needs to be visceral, experiential, authentic. Intellectualizing won’t cut it — it falls short. It is too abstract. It is not believable.
And here’s the kicker: When you are happy in the present moment, just as it is, you release the conditions you previously felt had to be in place before you could be happy. Now, all of the wonderful things you once held at arm’s length flow to you effortlessly.
And if they do not appear in the exact form or at the exact time you once thought they should, it won’t matter. You know they do not determine your happiness. You trust the flow of the Universe.
Pure appreciation, pure joy, pure freedom.
This is the secret sauce, the big kahuna, the real deal.
How simple and how perfect.
Can’t you see?
