Hi all, I thought I'd share with you something that was shown to me in a meditation. You probably already know about it and it could seem lame but in the short time I've been working with this idea it has been having very positive tangible results for me.
In my meditation, I was taken to a most beautiful fountain, with water gushing over a number of cascades under a brilliant light. I understood the fountain to be a fountain of inspiration, unceasing energy, a perpetual renewal, a 'fountain of youth.' I was told that to 'become with' this perpetual renewal all I had to do was to say 'I choose happiness' THAT SIMPLE!
In a 3D world this may seem Pollyanna-ish but it has occurred to me that (similar in intent to the 'Go-Gratitude' program) the act of choosing happiness, despite all of the apparent reasons to be fearful, is to transcend the illusive nature of 3D existence. A 3D definition of happiness might be something like,' when all conditions are favorable to my being, I experience happiness. This implies that happiness is a byproduct of random circumstances coming together. However, to choose happiness is to acknowledge that we have control over our response to a situation (remember the TT lesson, 'it's not what happens, it's what you do about it').
It may seem callous and uncaring to choose happiness in the face of poverty and the personal suffering of the many but choosing happiness is to acknowledge the perfection of each moment as everyone's Karmic dance is played out. Therefore, in spite of all that is 'wrong' and all that is 'right' in life (judgements I know I ought not make) I choose to be happy. As one, Rob.
