Ingredients For Happiness

  • 2 cups Perspective
  • 1 oz Law Of Attraction
  • 1 cup Good Intention
  • dash of Luck, (optional)

Everyone wants to know the secret to happiness. Many have searched and thought their efforts futile when they were not able to manifest instant gratification - giving up on the pursuit in view of the obstacles. Others have found paths to happiness through self-help books which deliver steps that should be taken to achieve the fun-filled life. The Secret and The Quantum Cookbook are a couple of the more popular such tomes that seek to clarify and outline the process necessary to capture the inherit power that all humans possess. However, through all trials and tribulations I believe that one ingredient is more important than all others in the recipe for happiness. It is perspective. A healthy serving of high-quality brand name perspective can turn any situation into a bright one. Life is like an optical illusion and part of the beauty is in deciphering the puzzle in order to find the true message. The recipe for happiness lies within us all. Those who would not have it can blame no one but themselves. It may not be a quick meal idea, and the ingredients may need to be lay out upon the kitchen table like a fine cuisine chef preparing a top notch Wagyu steak with Matsutake mushrooms. There are sure to be failures as there so often is in any new culinary pursuit. Things will get burned, and there may need to be slight alterations to the list of ingredients individualized for taste. The final result is worth it.

Quantum Entanglement

The Quantum Cookbook picks up where The Secret left off. Anyone who has read or watched The Secret may feel that the work did not actually contain the secret at all. It was a bestseller that served to bring manifestation to the forefront of popular consciousness, but there are many who feel that it is not working as they had hoped. But, regardless of what is contained in the books, it is important to understand (and BELIEVE) that there is happiness in everything. It is only a matter of perspective. Perspective can turn anything around. For example, one of my favorite parts of writing in the Hubpages community is the contests. The last contest month was fun where writers answered questions as hubs, and although I did not win anything, I learned a lot through some of the articles I posted. Maybe a few readers did as well. So, when I found out that this month's contest was about recipes I was a little disappointed because I did not see myself writing about cooking, mainly because I am not much of a cook. I have a few things that I enjoy making, but they have probably been covered before. So, for the first half of the month I did not make an entry. Then I had a change of perspective. I went back and read the contest rules and realized that it was not really about cooking at all, but rather, the contest was about recipes. Or at least that was my interpretation, who knows what the judges will think. And, a recipe can be for anything. Now the contest became fun again. In fact, I think it has been more fun through this "loop hole." You see, the world operates in the same way. If you are expecting things to be easy then you will probably be disappointed, but put in the effort to change your perspective and realms of possibility open up.

Paul made this very clear in his "prison letter" that is Philippians in the Bible. He was imprisoned by the Roman Imperial Guard for no real crime. This entanglement included being chained wrist to wrist via a "halusis" to guards who took up their position in regular shifts. Yet Paul was able to express joy and the need for joy in spite of these circumstances. If he had been writing in the modern internet landscape the search engines would probably have classified his article as being about happiness, and it was, but it was also about his preaching of Christ even through persecution in a cell. It was Paul's change in perspective that allowed this to occur. He knew that this main ingredient could turn a cake wreck to a masterpiece. This is definitely a must-have in any complete recipe collection.

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things.

      A very interesting take on the recipe hub and I have to agree that your ingedients for happiness all look pretty good to me!

      I have found, personally, that the acceptance that happiness comes and goes in a state of continual flux and flow can also increase happiness throughout the difficult times too. You know that you are just temporarily on the out tide and that sooner or later the in tide will turn back in your favor.

      I'm not a religious person at all but I'll take wisdom wherever I find it and your quotation from the letter to the Phillipians is an excellent one and always worth bearing in mind. Especially after just having read the daily news!

      Thanks for an inspiring and quirky little hub.
