Where Does Happiness Come From?

This Week’s Quotation:

The results of right causes will be right, but the satisfaction is not in that which is experienced by reason of the results of right cause. The satisfaction is in the right cause itself. But human beings have become so deeply embedded in the conviction that it is the things round about—what may be gotten, or what may be done, in an external sense—that bring satisfaction, that it seems difficult to allow the truth to be recognized, acknowledged and accepted, the truth that fulfilment and satisfaction comes from within. And if it is not coming from within, in the flow of life, fulfilment and satisfaction are impossible, no matter what the individual does in the external sense.

Happiness, fulfilment, comes because life is allowed to flow.

Where Does Happiness Come From?

Do you remember building things as a child and then knocking them down when they were all done? Knocking down the blocks or taking apart the legos?

I laugh when I reflect on my life so far and see how necessary a results orientation seems to be as an adult. My family and friends have relied on me, and I have significant things to accomplish in the world.

Today it’s good to remember that I am still the little kid who knocked down the blocks. Who knew that there would be more little houses to build and that the joy was in the building.

Here’s what I think. A results orientation is fine up to the point that it takes a person out of attunement with their creative joy; up to the point that happiness and fulfillment are postponed.

So if you are a person like me who takes their purpose and mission in life seriously, this is mission-critical. Attune to the source of your joy now. Then infuse all your creative efforts with that energy. Embrace happiness now!

That could be a way to live a life.

Thank you David, I was interested to see an interview with Sophia Loren who has been working in the film industry for 71 years. She embodies someone who seems to have mastered the art of working from the inside-out and she tells how she found fulfilment and happiness through living Life to the full whilst bringing joy to all the moments possible.
I love the picture of the child building and breaking structures, tackling adventures with innocence and joy, which can be covered over during the course of a Life.
I am grateful for this good news to go out to as many as possible. Thank you.

Happiness comes from a life allowed to flow!
The flow depends on seeing opportunities that bring me joy.
Flow is what my creative energy generates.
And flow is what sustains my creative energy.

I am experiencing pure joy in considering an event I will be attending this weekend! I have had some experience in the territory of the topic being considered yet opening up to the possibility of something new happening is what propels me towards this event. My awareness of the subject just keeps growing, even as it comes to mind and I consider it in these days before the event. I am very eager to hear what will reveal itself at the time, both in the presentations and with others who will be attending. The child like joy, even excitement, you speak of, to me shows itself at the beginning of whatever endeavor I embark upon. I have found this quality of spirit is always available as I am open to it. And all flows from that inside out reality as you are indicating. Thank you for “lightening” the atmosphere of this day with this buoyant topic.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
