Life, Love, Health, Wisdom & Happiness

Every aspect and experience of our life, each memory, fear, success, dream or aspiration, is a gift that hold within it the magic of health, happiness and sacredness. True inner health and happiness has little to do with doctors or healers of any kind (i can see Swami having a field day with this one), it has to do with inner purity, power and patience. This comes through understanding the value in our suffering. It means that we have to work with our circumstances as we go through the process of physical, psychological and spiritual change.

This is the hardest thing that any person can do and you can only do it on your own. Of course there are others who can help, but ultimately its up to you.  As you heal yourself, you begin to find your own insight into the nature of knowledge and into the love that exists in all of humanity. Every person is scared. every person is Love encapsulated into a special form and personality. Knowing this, even a little, connects each of us to happiness because happiness is a taste of the sacred in all things. Simply by the act of starting to heal your own life, you spark the healing of others and of the world in which we live. There is no need to force this idea on other people. The quiet act of living in accordance with who you are and who you can be allows the natural influence of goodness to grow.

As basic goodness finds its own expression in other people, there comes with it wisdom and knowledge. Knowledge of the natural world and the inner workings of human nature, of the power of mind and thought in the material world. it seems quite obvious that humanity at large - which includes all of us - has been sick for a very long time. We have forgotten our intrinsic nature. We have lost sight of the knowledge that along with our instinct for survival are the instincts of spiritual wisdom, healing and happiness.

When we forget that we have these qualities of inner wisdom we become unhappy. Unhappiness makes us sick. And so the cycle continues. All we have to remember is that we, all of us, are the cure. As we start to understand our minds and the nature and limitations of our thought, we will, sooner or later, come to a place of consciousness which is vast and out of our normal experience. Our normal experiences are dependent upon our everyday mind. The everyday mind believes it has an everyday consciousness so it becomes shy, doubtful, needy and feels impotent. Exposed to the raw pain of this, many people do not have lives at all: life is an iceberg and they are underwater. Others build apparently successful lives because they contrive to stay on-top of the iceberg by dint of paying no attention to the fact that they will slowly melt into this vast consciousness and disappear.

Yet in this everyday consciousness lies an essence-less essence that is uniquely who you are. It pervades all things, from sea to sky, from the first to be born and the last to die, and you are in communion with all things. Every day becomes one day, a day of gladness and beauty that reinvents itself as you do through the natural delight of creation. How is this achieved? By developing the ability to balance. this is not a weighing of one thing against another,  or the unskillful action of running from one action to the next, but knowing that true balance comes out only in the space between the moments.  :heart:

All you need is Love! Really thats it! Infinite Unconditional Love! Just develop that and all else will fall into place perfectly!
