How Happy Are You?

People do not seem to have an awareness of how happy they are in the present moment. If you ask yourself: Am I happy? You have to think about it for a moment before you know. Don’t you?
You are not like that with your other emotional states. You are well aware when you are sad, you are well aware when you are disappointed and you are well aware when you are lonely. And when you are aware of sadness, disappointment or loneliness, you have the ability to dwell on those feelings. You can dwell on them for long periods. You can wallow in them until they take over your whole life. Perhaps you will not admit to being like that yourself, but you certainly know somebody who spends their whole life complaining, don’t you?
Why is happiness different? When you are happy, why doesn’t it have the power that other emotions have. Why can’t you dwell on it and make it last for long periods? Why can’t you wallow in it and let it take over your whole life?
Isn’t that a nice thought? Wallowing in HAPPINESS all day, every day, for ever.
Perhaps it’s sounds impossible right now BUT we can certainly give a real try.
Happiness seems to come at odd moments. Sometimes you expect it and it lets you down. Other times it comes when you least expect it, for no reason.
You can’t make it come, you can’t dwell on it and increase the strength of the feeling and you can’t make it last.
You can’t right now BUT we are going to change all that. We will look at what happiness really is in my next post.
Love, Peace and Happiness.
