The only way we can measure the significance of our own lives, is by valuing the lives of others! For if we are here to simply exist, there is no real significance to be had. And attaching a value to ourselves relies very much upon our interaction with others. Simply being born human, does not make you part of the human race. Blood, sweat, guts, hard decisions and sacrifice is what keeps this world turning! And the sooner you become involved in life as we know it, the happier you’ll be! Not because you become rich and successful. But because you were involved with the hopes and dreams of others! So happiness in life, is not whether you win or lose, it really is how you play the game! It’s time to stop sitting on the sidelines, and get involved! Find your passion!
And how you play the game means being able to smile in the face of adversity! If you’re going to make any progress in this world, you’re going to have to take some knocks, or where is the victory in an effortless grab? However insignificant our contributions appear to be, they add up over time to give us a sense of direction and purpose. We can’t truly live successful lives without getting beat up a bit, so don’t hide your battle scars from people. Where them proudly, without shame! Win or lose, your statement has been made, and satisfaction is a component of happiness… So never underestimate your role in this thing called life. What you do or refuse to do matters!
‘Laugh, and the world laughs with you. Cry, and you cry alone!’ Rule number 6: ‘No one is in charge of your happiness, except you.’ Do you really think searching out and condemning all the ugliness around you that you find will make you happy? If I said: ‘Come over here and sniff this big horse pucky!’ Would you do it? Does even one of your complaints change a thing? Then be the one thing of beauty that abides within you, and people will be attracted to you like a magnet… You don’t need to be someone to the entire world, just to someone else! So you’re not number 1 out of 7 billion… Get over it! Don’t take this insanity so seriously!
The past is over! It’s done. Can’t change it now! Isn’t it time to let go of all that hurt and pain? How do you expect to ever be happy if you keep reliving hurtful experiences? Best you let it go and move on with your life… In fact, if you would concentrate on always kicking bad thoughts out and replacing them with good ones, it will soon become second nature! This is another secret to true happiness… But then, thought never did do much of anything but sit around and think all day! Good thoughts come from good experiences; create, explore and challenge life, instead of sitting in a chair watching everybody else do it on TV…
See, you can’t be in this world without negative things happening to you. It’s just a fact of life. We can not learn unless we face up to our mistakes! Do you really think God put you here to flip burgers for eternity? You made that choice, not the pathetic lack of jobs. If you can’t find a job, good! That’s a success! Now you can make your own job and be your own boss… Just find a need and fill it. Necessity is indeed the mother of invention! So life is like a camera… We develop from the negatives! Don’t be afraid of a flash of lightning, that’s just God taking your picture…
I know! Talk about God and everyone runs for the hills! Well don’t leave just yet. I have some interesting information for you. Did you know that the odds of life beginning on Earth in some primordial soup are 10 the minus 39th. power? In point of fact, life starting on its own is an impossibility… Hundreds of proteins are gonna line up in just the right order huh? Let’s do a lesser experiment. Smash a fine swiss watch and place all the components in a closed container and shake the container until the watch comes back together again. When will that happen? Never; too many random combinations to all happen in just the right order.
Don’t you know whatever you believe will eventually materialize? If God did not exist, we would simply will Him into existence anyway! God promises to remove our sadness! Christ goes to prepare a place for us, and he has conquered death! So knowing that you will not simply cease to exist forever, and will enter a world of love and compassion, is but another component of true happiness for us all! It’s not his authenticity that counts! Just believing that God does exist and loves us, is enough to make us happy! What good’s being right matter, if it makes you miserable?
Nobody knows what created The Big Bang just yet! And untill we know, God exists for me! Besides, we now know that the visible spectrum only includes a very tiny fraction of what’s all really out there! I only know that The Bible is righteous, comforting, and filled with real working lessons about how one should go about living their lives, to be happy…
God’s not responsible for what goes on here, because of the noninterference contract we made with Him back in The Garden! We said we’d do it ourselves and we did! Now we are developing God like powers over life and death, because that component of Him is in us, visible now for all to see! And yet you still don’t believe in creation? Why? We create too don’t we? You should start trying, because that belief, is one of the strongest components of happiness there is!
God teaches us how to love one another! And if we can just do that, happiness will follow for everyone… In fact, the Earth is slowly becoming a paradise as we request in the Lord’s Prayer: ‘Thy Kingdom come! Let it be on Earth, as it is in Heaven!’ So there is hope for your happiness! In fact it’s within your power to decide here and now! So, are you going to be miserable, or step up to the plate and start swinging? This ends our discussion on the secret to happiness for the time being… Unless… Hope against all hope… Any queries?
