Heaven #3930 What Makes You Happy?

To thine own heart be true. Where does your heart leap to? And where does it fall down from?

And, yet, do not jump to conclusions as to where your happiness lies. Give yourself breathing space. Find the level of your heart. Where does it like to be? If your heart were a bird, what tree does it like to sit on? What note does it like to sing?

Deeper than deep, where does your heart's happiness lie?

We are talking of what is beyond ice cream and a ripe juicy peach. We are talking beyond what you want to do today or enjoyed last week. We are looking for your common denominator.

Sometimes you can get there by thinking of what does not give you happiness, yet taking the direction of what does give you happiness is a lovelier ride. From what does happiness flow to you? How I would love to see you happy.

Sometimes what you think will make you happy does not. Sometimes it seems that nothing will make you happy. And there are times when everything makes you happy. Even looking at a picture makes you happy. Or reading My words gives you happiness, or, at least, a piece of happiness.

What makes you happy? We are speaking beyond words now. What is it really that makes you happy? We are not looking for platitudes. We are not really looking at answers. We know about the value of love and serving. We are not looking for words here right now. Enough of words.

We are looking for the trail that leads to your happiness. We know enough of trails that have not. Must happiness be so elusive?

Let your heart be a bloodhound that finds its way. We are looking to find where your heart belongs.

Yes, life teaches that happiness is not outside us, and yet you can locate your happiness. Where does your heart most like to be? Not just at first glance. What is the underlying route to your happiness? Again, the answer is not in words or tenets.

It is not in career or wealth. They serve. They really are wonderful, and yet they are not enough. Career and wealth sound like ego words.

Of course, you have heard the theory of being happy whatever you are doing, and yet that is not always the case. Yes, it is well and good to enjoy the well of life. It is certainly advisable to enjoy washing dishes and to enjoy whatever you are doing. Yes, that is ideal. And, yet, wherein lies your happiness?

Yes, your happiness lies in Me, and yet that is not what I am asking. I know you enjoy Our talks. And yet what is the current of the river that brings out the happiness that is within you?

Maybe you can do happiness only one day at a time. And, if in this moment, you have happiness, what a wonderful thing. What a wonderful thing is happiness. You are supposed to have it instead of all the other ramparts of life you have had. Join with happiness today, and ask it to stay. Yes, of course, you deserve happiness. Where does it lie deeply for you?

What will you do today that gives you happiness? You must do it, beloveds. Give yourself a day where you give yourself happiness. Of course, you are not waiting for the world to come to give you happiness, scrub your back, give you a manicure, a massage or a pair of new shoes. There is something to do for yourself that will lead to happiness today, and it is for you to do. And, if it is ice cream that gives you happiness today, then have ice cream, and have it on Me.

Thank you, Gloria!

There is a simple exercise I use at times when happiness seems elusive: I pretend that the language hasn't been invented yet.
This clarifies perception, and creates what I call 'a Wow-state':-)

It leads to a fresh, organic experience-try for yourself!

As said above-enough words! ;-)
