Welcome, Happiness!

God said:

Yes, I hear your moans and groans. Sometimes it seems that you major in moans and groans. And sometimes you face yourself squarely and say:
“Beloved God of Glory, to think that You notice us and pay great attention to us. To think that You love us, really love us, as we are, and that You love through thick and thin. Why are we not overjoyed? This is the biggest mystery in life, not that You love us, but that we are not the most joyous people in all the world. How can it be that all of us on Earth are not happy and pouring out gratitude for this blessing of life You have bestowed upon us.

"Instead we are grumpy, and we find fault with You and how You have put the Universe together. We are imperious, God. We correct You. We dare to tell You how You really ought to have set up the Universe. Are we an ungrateful bunch, God?”

Beloveds, I do not think either grateful or ungrateful. A baby is a baby. Understand this: You, all of you, just as you are, bring out the love in Me as naturally as the sun rises from the East. There is nothing difficult about My loving you. My love for you belongs to you. You are growing up. You are not growing down. As you live in life, you learn to respect and accept life as it is, and you plant flowers. You are putting aside your ignorance, and you grow toward the Sun.

There are ways that are easier for you, and ways that are harder for you. You can see this way or that way. You can be all over the place, yet from you, blessings come. You are not only a receiver of blessings. You are not only a lover of blessings. You, as you are, even as stubborn as you are, are also one who blesses. Most assuredly, you are greater than you know. From greatness comes awareness. With awareness comes humility.

You may not have a full understanding of the word humility. Let’s put it another way. You don’t have arrogance. You don’t have to put Me on a pedestal. You also don’t have to put yourself on a pedestal.

Sometimes you second-guess Me. You find it easy to complain and find fault and object to life. You may like to complain and aggrieve yourself, thinking that you, this individual in life, know better than I. Alas, fighting Me does not make you smart nor does it make you a champion.

If you want to remake the world, if you want to revise life, finding fault is not the way. Loving the world is the way. Loving yourself is the way. Displeasure is not the way. Crankiness is not the way. Conceit is not the way. Haughtiness is not the way.

Wanting to come out on top is not the way to come out on top when, in so doing, you come to putting others down. Here is the joker. There are no others. Putting anyone down is putting yourself down. Putting yourself down does not raise you to new heights.

Here is another joker: Despite anything and everything, despite your burly ego, despite your complaints, you will come shining through. You will reach clear thinking, and you will put aside your perceived ego needs, and you will triumph over your ignorance and arrogance. You will reach the summit of happiness. You will follow your heart rather than haughtiness. You will find the light within yourself, and you will light up the world.

Your purpose here in Life on Earth never was to find fault. Finding fault isn’t exactly a claim to wisdom. If you really want to uplift the world, then uplift yourself. It is wiser to be happy than a grouch. Get the hang of happiness.

My Mother would say every day these words of wisdom

My mom had five children under eight when she became a single parent in the early 1950's and whenever we would argue as children she would say the first verse of Ella Wilcox's poem.

By: Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Don't look for the flaws as you go through life
And even when you find them,
It is wise and kind to be somewhat blind
And look for the virtue behind them.
For the cloudiest night has a hint of light
Somewhere in its shadows hiding;
It is better by far to hunt for a star,
Than the spots on the sun abiding.


Reading heavenletters brings me such peace.
