Happy For All Time...

Updated on April 22, 2011

Love And The Grace Of God

What I realize, this day, and every day is that I have a choice to make, and that choice for me has to be the light.

I watch people in their lives and listen to their commitments through what they say. What I hear much of is people's concerns. There is not a place in our educational system, that I am aware of, that teaches us the science of 'How To Have A Good Life'. But, I can't think of anything more useful than a course that discloses the physics or metaphysics of how what we say and what we do create.

We believe what we think is true, we believe what we say is true. There is no organized way, that I know of right now, to learn to distinquish between the facts and our perception of the facts - our opinions. From what I am able to glean looking out across our planet, what we are creating with our thoughts is our unresolved issues, both individually and as a planet.  Many of us are looking for happiness outside ourselves, where it cannot be found.  We are looking to those with perceived greater power than we, ourselves, to fix what is wrong with our world.  We think that what we say and do, do not make any difference, so we just continue to espouse our limiting beliefs about ourselves, each other and our home.

From a really wonderful book by H. Emilie Cady, "Lessons In Truth", I found this passage..."Hitherto we have believed that we were helped and comforted by others, that we received joy from outside circumstances and surroundings, but it is not so." "All joy and strength and good spring up from a fountain within one's own being, and if we only knew the Truth, we should know that, because God in us is the fountain out of which springs all our good, nothing that anyone does or says, or fails to do or say, can take away our joy and good."

I decided recently, within the last month or so that I must discipline myself to see only God in everything. The last few years in my life have been and still are filled with challenges, as everyones' life is. I am not religious in any way, but I am totally a spiritual being. I have prayed and I have meditated and I have cried and I have struggled with what I see in the world, and finally I have declared that I will be happy for all time. It is the only thing I can do to help a world in despair.

My intention is to write things that are uplifting and create thoughtfulness and joy among those who have been generous enough to follow and support me. I shall always support everyone I can who takes up the good fight, but I shall always, too, do all that is in my power to bring the energy of the people of our planet to the achievement of their highest goals through being the most positive force of energy that I, myself, can be.

On April 15th 2012, International Love and Awareness Day will be celebrated for the first time. The request is that on this day, you take 24 hours in which to promote only love and awareness in ourselves and in each other on our planet. It also represents the opportunity to 'Be Happy For All Time'. Please celebrate this day with me on April 15th 2012.

Love and light to you all.

      Spirit Whisperer, your generosity of spirit inspires me greatly.

      The short journey I have taken on HubPages has been as another lifetime to me. In these two brief months, since I started writing here I have met some of the most wonderful people I have ever known. This is why I know that it is only a small step required by each of us to see and experience the love that is all around us.

      Thank you my dear friend for this lovely comment and thank you for the contribution you made to my life.

      Love and light,

      Lela

      prasetio, I sense the gentleness of your spirit in everything you write. I am so glad to have met you here on HP. Your comment warms my heart and I desire nothing more than I desire a world experiencing their highest goals. The highest goal I can imagine is to see only God in everything. God is love and we are created from this powerful love.

      Thank you, prasetio.

      Love and light,

      A hub of wisdom and truth CP. You are as they say, an old soul.Knew a man once who had a bad drinking problem; he tried everything for cessation to no avail. One day he went out into a remote field, got down on his knees and with the deepest of feelings, tears and anguish he begged any power in creation for healing...when he stood and began walking back to his car, he knew the healing had begun..and it had.

      AP,thank you so much for your kind words and graceful insight.

      Our world must find a way to heal. It has to start with each of us being more aware of what we, ourselves, are promoting in the world by what we think, say and do.

      I am a big fan of Quantum Physics and the clearest part of that science tells us that all energy waits in a state of possibility until we interact with it.

      We must bring ourselves to the recognition of our own responsibilty in the matter.

      Love and light,

      I am aware there are some sick S.O.B.s in this world, but this does not make me an unhappy person. When the State of Tennessee wants to prevent teachers from teaching "Evolution", saying the word "GAY", or discussing "Climate Change", the word that comes to mind is Ignorance and fascism not "Love"

      When a black woman is standing in line at a grocery store and asked if she voted for that "Nigger Obama" I see that as mean spirited and racist not "Love".

      When a Senator wants to do away with medicare and hve seniors purchase "Health Insurance" I see lack of empathy and vicious favoritism of the rich, not "Love".

      My love for myself and the world forces me to speak out against these things 365 days a year. Sorry, but I do not really see the point of Love and Awareness Day. It isn't going to change any of the things I mentioned. Not sure what is to be gained.

      It would be great if we could have Love and Awareness Day everyday. Terry is right, there are some rotten souls in this world, but we can only be responsible for ourselves. Happiness is a choice.

      Dear Terry, I know how you feel. I really do. But what I also know is that my being antagonistic towards others does not make a beneficial difference.

      There is no question that ignorance and prejudice are alive and well, but just as a bully gains control of those who fear them, I see defensiveness as a way of letting others be in control of my life.

      When mean spirited people do mean spirited things, my reacting to them only hurts me. But when I look for what I believe is needed in the world and find a way to support that myself, I believe I am creating something, not resisting it. As I have said before, what we fear, we resist, and what we resist, we become. I have no intention of becoming a vicious mean spirited person just so I can get back at someone else.

      I have a vision, Terry, and that vision is to create something that I believe will make a beneficial difference on our planet. When Earth Day started, there were only a few people who recycled and thought green towards our planet, now people all over the world have become thoughtful about the actions they take and how those actions affect our Earth.

      I believe that what I think, say, and do make a difference in the world, and I choose to always look for the action or words that will bring the greatest joy to another or others.

      I love you, Terry and I support you in all your undertakings because in my heart I know you are a really good person. If you can support love and awareness for only one day each year, just because you love me, and I know you do, then that is all I am asking of you.

      You cannot change people, the best you can hope for is to inspire them.

      Blessings,

      Lela

      Fay, you are certainly one of the wisest people I know. Happiness is a choice, as you say, and my being unhappy adds nothing beneficial to a world in turmoil, but my happiness brings joy to all those around me, which they then spread to others, still.

      Thank you my wonderful friend for all the support you have given me on HP.

      You are truly AWESOME, and you make a very beneficial difference in my life.

      Blessings...

      If the German's had reacted to the camps instead of turning their heads, I think it might have made a difference.

      Happiness is not tied to ignoring the hateful events around us. Happiness is not affected by confronting those events and making a difference. Attacking ignorance does not hurt me. At minimum it clarifies my values.

      Earth Day is not comparable to an International Love Day. Earth Day you plant a tree on a Tea Baggers Grave! That is a an inspiring thought for sure!

      But what you want is fine with me. I just want you to know your REAL Friends will tell you when the Emperor is stark naked. In the words of Chief Joseph, "I will fight my ass off to the end"

      Terry, I am not saying people should not bring others attention to the atrocities being promoted in our country and in the world around us. I feel that shining the light on these things helps people to be more aware. What I think is less useful is the opinions we add to what we shine the light upon. Most people would die to defend their opinions, I wonder how many would live for what they believe in.

      As I have said, I will always support those whose commitment is to expose the horrors afflicted on others, what I will not do is give weight to people's opinions.

      What the truth looks like is reporting that the Republicans want to cut school lunches. What the opinion looks like is, those damned Republicans are a bunch of idiots and should all be shot.

      Hope this helps clarify.

      Love,

      Lela

      Awesome idea. Having a single day is a great

      start! Maybe one day that will lead to every day

      being filled with Love and Awareness.

      khaberm, thank you so much for this wonderful comment. I, too, feel that it must start somewhere and hope that people will at least use one day each year to love each other and themselves. Maybe after people put their awareness to that end one time it will bring a new light into their inner divinity and they will know that they were born of love.

      There is a passage in the "Course In Miracles" that says, "Teach only love, for that is what you are."

      Thank you for reading my article and making this wonderful comment.

      Blessngs and light to you.
