The Two Secrets to a Happy Life
By Jafree Ozwald
“See the perfection in the seeming imperfection that seems to be.” ~ Lester Levinson
The world we live in can be a very busy, intense, and deeply complex experience. Every day we are dealing with ever increasing technology that can complicate the natural human experience of life in a invasive and personal way. It seems that in order to find real happiness in this situation, we need to balance out life’s complexities with an approach of absolute simplicity. It is truly from coming back to our natural simple ways that we’ll find real meaning and the clarity to truly enjoy our daily existence. Life’s problems might be very serious and complicated, and yet the answers are always surprisingly simple.
The 1st simple secret to finding happiness in our daily lives is to develop an unstoppable habit of appreciation. When we feel appreciation for what we have and don’t have, for what we’re doing and not doing, for what is working and not working in our lives, we discover more awareness inside. We are aware of who we are being in the world, why we are being this way and life expands to a whole new dimension. The divine attitude of gratitude is a powerful place to live from because it completely relaxes and heals our mind on a very deep level. There is a sweet deep acceptance of our life (and other’s lives) exactly the way it is, and this energy allows us to see, feel, and know the bigger picture of our soul’s life plan.
What causes us pain is the opposite of gratitude, which is the desire to have more. That burning yearning lacking feeling of desire makes us forget about appreciating life and others. The mind has this habit of chasing desires all day long. It’s always feeding itself with the next tantalizing morsel of what will make its life better. The mind yearns for something bigger, better, or more amazing to improve it’s existence. When we end up following the mind around, we end up feeling lost in life. As if we didn’t have anything better to do with our day. We become like a robot that just obeys what the mind says. When the mind says this is good, we smile, and when the mind says this is bad, we frown. The mind is a tyrant that we need to step back from if we are to become free from it. It simply needs to see and feel a deep heart felt appreciation for the life that is all around.
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~Melody Beattie
The painful issue we all have as humans is that the mind is set on fulfilling it’s desires no matter what! The desiring mindset blinds us and not until it feels happy will it stop. What we need to do is realize that we are the master of the mind, and we can relinquish our attachment to it’s ever pressing list of needs, wants and desires. It’s not that desires are bad, it’s just that our attachment to fulfilling them leads to forgetting the divine experiences of gratitude, love and appreciation. It’s like when we fall in love with someone, the mind needs them more than it needs our own heart, and we stop falling in love with ourselves. The Platters once sang, “some day you’ll find all who love are blind and when you heart’s on fire you must realize smoke gets in your eyes.”
There is hope for humanity. We can learn how to find peace within ourselves, no matter how the mind shows up for us. We can merge with our hearts and put the burning desiring mind on the back burner. In the heart, we can find it’s easier to relish our daily challenges, seeing them as opportunities, and use the great healing loving gift that life has given us. In the heart, we don’t avoid the negative and only seek the positive, we tend to see and feel the positive within the negative in all things.
In the heart we tend to be open, accepting and allowing for life to come into us. The totality of existence is naturally caressing our heart and soul everyday, and it’s our job to appreciate this gift however we can. Life loves us and is constantly throwing itself on top of us devouring us with it’s fierce loving presence. We know life loves us because the body-mind naturally heals itself, and we are infused with deep soul lessons everyday. When we are listening for the lesson we can become free beyond comprehension.
To be really alive in this lifetime we must get beyond wanting more, needing more, having more and being more. We must let go of thinking there is something better than this moment. We must know with knowing there’s always something bad in the good, and good in the bad. To develop a repetitive habit of authentic appreciation can seem huge and daunting, yet the reality of it is truly fun, enjoyable and effortless. The feeling of appreciation is our most natural state.
As children we all lived in such awe and wonder of our Universe naturally. We saw how everything was connected to everything, and we experienced each new thing with fresh eyes of clarity. So this childlike state is still inside us, the consciousness is here, we simply need to become vulnerable and innocent for it to come through. Getting in touch with our inner child and true playful trusting essence again makes our relationships with family, friends, health, money and everything more amazing.
“When ego is lost, limit is lost. You become infinite, kind, beautiful.” – Yogi Bhajan
In the world of manifesting, it’s all about releasing attachment to the physical world, and trusting that something higher is behind it all, creating it all through us. The grand intelligence is overseeing it all, so we can sit back, relax and enjoy this amazing ride! We are the divine microcosm within the macrocosm, that can also flip to become the macrocosm peering into the microcosm. We don’t have to be the over controllers of our destiny. That’s why it’s called destiny because you have no control over it really. The best response we can have is to sit back, appreciate what lessons we are learning here now, enjoying our every breath while it lasts. It is the greatest balancing act of all, to allow ourselves to be out-of-control while outrageously in control, knowing how to relax, have fun, not take life too seriously because we are letting go letting God handle all the details. As the old saying goes, whatever will be will be…Que Sera Sera.
By letting go of control and trusting life in one instant, we can shift and see and feel this an awesome Universe all around us and inside us. We can actually feel love for the predicaments, problems, and challenging situations we’re facing right now. To find real happiness within our every day issues, we simply must check inside and see how often we are following the desiring mindset. Are we behaving like a lost puppy, following the mind wherever it goes? This blind following is the act of forgetting the feeling of being in love with our lives, and being a slave to needing, wanting and always having more.
The second secret to finding happiness every day, is about having a very conscious and sensitive relationship with our mind. When the mind starts to dwell in negative, how do we respond to it? Do we believe that what its saying is the whole truth? When the mind focuses on the negative, we must immediately release all identification with those thoughts and then we are free! It’s not that there is any rejection or avoidance of the negative mind, it’s more of cultivating a higher awareness which tends to naturally live beyond all negativity. This secret boils down to being aware of our minds basic nature, which is always about thinking, judging and not being one with all that is. The mind is unaware of itself, it is the consciousness that is aware of the mind.
Awareness is always the key to freedom. We can make a conscious decision to accept or ignore a negative thought pattern that continues to plague us. When we are in touch with our feelings, we can be exquisitely aware of any negativity that may creep it’s way in, and stop identifying with it. This divine sensitivity to our feelings, thoughts and overall life experience empowers us completely. A life of conscious awareness is the most liberating experience of all in life. You know deep down there is no possible way that negativity can take over your mind or emotions. In this state of freedom we find the natural feeling of appreciation for life wherever we are.
“If you could only keep quiet, clear of memories and expectations, you would be able to discern the beautiful pattern of events. It is your restlessness that causes chaos.” ~Nisargadatta Maharaj
So it basically the two secrets to happiness come down to practicing two things; love and awareness. Truly, it is the simplicity of this basic formula that makes it profound, practical and work powerfully for us in our daily lives. Because it is so simple we can easily remember it and live it. I find walking through life along this two step path of love and awareness allows a deeper relaxation to occur inside naturally. This relaxation enables us to experience mastery of our existence where we can surrender to life and enjoy everything even more! Through this deep relaxation we just give unconditional love to everyone we meet and find an even higher quality to our awareness.
The magic formula for happiness is not a luxury for the few. It is essential we all have access to it. When everyone knows how to live life from a truly awake and empowered space, we will have a free and peaceful society. This direct and simple approach opens us all to think outside our normal patterns of thinking, and see a bigger truth inside us that liberates our soul. We all need to remember that we are spiritual beings utterly and essentially. Finding this spiritual connection to our real selves is not only the best way to deal with the highly intense and technologically demanding world, yet the only way we can find real joy while living within it’s very grasp.
