The way to happiness
Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply,
expect little, give much. Fill your life with love. Scatter sunshine. Forget
self, think of others.
Do as you would be done by. Pray, believe in God.
Excerpt from the book: The Power of Positive Thinking, by Norman Vincent Peale
The more you love Jesus Christ the more happy you will be and the less worried you will be.
Happiness is feeling pleasure, feeling joy, feeling satisfied. It can be a tingling in your soul and in your body. Soul happiness is a feeling of love that fills you up. Mind happiness takes place when input data is considered funny. Also, mind happiness, laughter, is a short-circuit of neuron connections. Moreover, it is having thoughts of love, thoughts of joy, funny thoughts, thoughts of righteousness. A happy mind is satisfied, it is a peaceful mind. When the mind has no thoughts and you feel happy then this is happiness. How do you reach such a state? By prayer. I challenge everybody, people who are away from Christ, heavy sinners, to give me 1/2 hour and I will make them happy. Read this prayer: evening prayer
. After the prayer you will feel happy, love, joy, peace. I guarantee it. Just try once. According to Saint Paul the fruit of the Holy Spirit is: love
, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22-23
We all wish "happiness" for example we say happy new year. But the wisdom of the people and experience says that there is no happy life. There are only happy moments in life. Happiness is not a station of life to which we arrive. It is the way in which we travel. There is not "something" that gives happiness but Someone. And only those are happy who are able to find Him and co-travel with Him.
