Happiness cannot be owned but is a spiritual experience“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.”

Denis Waitley, quoted on facebook 

Happiness is an elusive goal. Just like LOVE is elusive. It is always moving and changing, now you have it, now you don’t. That is why we can only have happiness and LOVE in the NOW, as Eckhart Tolle calls it, the present moment. We can remember when we were happy and we can imagine future happiness, but we can only feel and be happy in this moment.

Near-death experiencers say that, as soon as they rise above their dead or dying body, they immediately feel freedom from pain and all the heaviness of their earthly body. Many immediately know peace, joy, LOVE, and bliss. Others go through a process of arriving at those things, often when they enter the Light. To me, that is happiness and so much more than we attach to the word. Those who have left their bodies say that none of our words adequately express the depth and heights of the LOVE, joy, peace, and bliss on the Other Side.

When I open my heart to LOVE, I see and feel everything differently. I allow LOVE to fill me from all directions. Everything I see sends me LOVE, and LOVE flows from me to all around me. This is a feeling of contentment, being in the flow, and fulfillment. That’s as close to happiness as I know how to get.

“God, I want to find happiness in this life. As a child, I knew what happiness was, even though the next minute tears might flow. I want to find that carefree happiness again, where all is well with my world. Is it possible, God? Help me know your peace, joy, LOVE and bliss while I am in this body, and let me be happy. Thank you, God. I love you.”
