Happiness does not leave you – it can’t. Happiness is not the result of an external condition. It lives internally and never leaves you, however you can suppress it to the point where it’s very difficult to find. Then what happens is your human mind has you searching “out there” in the real world to “find” happiness. But happiness cannot be “found” dolls because it never got lost, it simply got clouded up with some fog….it lives within you and emerges once you release all the sh*t covering it up.
That stuff includes anger, bitterness, guilt, resentment, judgment, rage, despair, loneliness, sadness, pain and any other variable of these. These are often things we believe we’ve assigned to other people but really and truly you’re holding them against yourself. This is like having a flowerbed full of weeds. They start small and then grow and multiply and before you know it they’ve encompassed all the flowers and start killing them off one by one. That’s what THOSE emotions do to your happiness and any other good feeling you have within you.
It’s time to release them for good. Let them go! That anger isn’t getting you anywhere and neither is that belief that you’re alone. There’s no reason to judge, resent or hold yourself in a place of guilt about anything. You are your problem and you are your solution. It has nothing to do with anyone else – that’s all just a facade. The problem is you are blocking yourself from your own happiness. You are the only thing standing in your way and it’s time to step aside, release all the ugliness and let the peace emerge. Bliss is right on the other side of that door…the only way you can walk through is if you leave all those crappy feelings behind you for good! Today’s Daily Affirmation is:
