The Truth of Happiness

“There is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really file0001190356464(1)want something, it's because that desire originated in the soul of the universe.... The soul of the world is nourished by people's happiness.”
- Paulo Coelho

Reading this quote above makes my heart smile! The soul of the world is nourished by people’s happiness! Imagine that! That awakens within me the desire to be a part of someone’s happiness. It makes me wish to move gently and with the flow, to observe and respond with love, to celebrate and recognize and to encourage and support. When I am in service in this way, my soul resonates as well and I am nourished and I begin to see the possibilities before me of what I am longing for, striving for and working towards. It is an amazing equation of grace and simplicity.

Yet we often forget it or lose sight of it, at least. We become bogged down by life’s complications. We become diverted by unnecessary needs. We become weakened by our fears or our negative beliefs. And we begin to stumble, lose momentum, and our positive life force wanes.

I am creating ways, this year, to pay attention and remain focused on what serves me and my goals and dreams. And since they revolve around being in service to others through Spirit, the path is light and filled with love, my steps are better grounded when taken with grace, and my heart is filled with compassion and strength as I reach out to do my work.

stairsThis year, I choose to live in my truth, in the truth of this planet and of the universe. I choose to believe good things are meant for me and that I am to do good as well. I choose to be open to the possibilities that have not even shown up on my own personal radar yet. I choose to live the life designed for me and to get out of my own way, to pull the brakes on the negative thinking or beliefs, to be brave enough to wear my personal power, to be humble enough to continue learning and growing and to be rich enough to give whenever and wherever I can. What a blessed year this shall be!

Blessings ~ Lisa
