Are We Happy Yet?

surfer on the beachThat’s a loaded question…but what do you think? Umm I mean, what do you feel?  We have a natural built in thermastat (our gut feeling) that allows us to determine if we’re living our lives authentically. Happiness is a conscious choice. We need to make sure that we want to be happy before it can happen. Ask yourself, then wait…you’ll feel your answer!

I totally believe that there are two dominant systems ruling our universe, mind, soul, & bodies… The Positive & the Negative…kinda like black & white. Since we can’t control or patrol people, places & things, what’s left? Our own conscious direction!! What are our choices? Positive & Negative. The details of our lives can very easily get in the way of us waking up & feeling our lives…only then can we determine what direction we’re going in, by it feeling good (right) or not (oops…turn around!). At that point (we’re still consciously awake) we can determine what we want & who we really need to be. The Positive & Negative choices are always there in front of us…by living in the present moment, taking responsibility for our own joy, not looking for blame, consciously choosing the direction we want to live in, knowing we can create the way we want our lives to feel, we can realistically & lovingly navigate our way, to where we’re meant to go.

It’s simple & not easy, but so what? What else does our conscious mind & gut instinct need to do, if not work on feeling happy? Give them a job! Pick a direction & let ‘em loose…have certainty that the joy is coming!!

Peace & Freedom,

Remember ‘The Secret’?

Brick BuildingThe teachings from ‘The Secret’ unleashed for us the wisdom behind The Law of Attraction. The deal with it is, ’like attracts like’…if your thoughts are focused on what you want, and you are certain that it’s being manifested, and you feel that it’s already here, and you’re in a state of feeling the joy having received it, then you will attract it…it will come, but do not under any circumstances doubt that this manifestation is going to happen, or you lose the vibration…the vibration you emit is the vibration you will attract…it’s based on quantum physics.

Ok, you either believe this or not…but gravity & electricity are invisible yet real.

I definitely am a Believer! Why wouldn’t I be? There’s nothing to lose except a negative attitude.

Right now things look rocky…politically, economically, socially,…you name it! But when was there ever a time in history when all things were good?  (Besides The Garden of Eden?)

There has always been war, poverty, prejudice, lying, scamming (bad stuff)…because the Ego has been part of the human condition since the beginning, and that ain’t gonna change.

Even though things are crappy, they’ll turn around and there will be other crappy things to take it’s place.

What we can do is continue to be a part of the Positive Collective Energy, because that’s available too! Let’s use our thoughts to look at the miracles around us to enhance the way we feel so we can attract more of the good stuff.

Yeh, I know, you either believe this stuff or you don’t…But let’s frickin’ Do It Anyway! It can’t hurt!!

Let’s not overlook how lucky we are to live in the United States…a place where we can say what we feel about the president, and not get arrested. There’s a lot of stuff to complain about. There’s a lot of stuff to be grateful for. We have free will to decide what our thoughts will be. Let’s use our gifts wisely…in ways that will consciously affect the atmosphere in a positive way.

In the movie ‘The Secret’, one of the contributors explains that Mother Teresa talked about peace not war, because the things that are thought & spoken about are given energy, which keeps it alive! What direction are we going to allow our thoughts to go in?

Let’s stay close to a positive feeling…

What’s So Normal About Being Normal?

cow jumping over the moonIn an Abnormal Psychology class I took in college, I learned that ’Normal’ was an instrument of measurement used to describe what the majority of people in a society or culture were doing at a particular time. It doesn’t mean good, bad, right or wrong…it’s just a snapshot of time.

Some cultures do things that would repulse us but is normal for them to do! I recently saw a documentary on the drug culture in the United Stated & Amsterdam…it piqued my interest because the drug enforcement policies are so different, but are considered ‘Normal’ for each country…there are pro’s & con’s to everything…

So if ‘Normal’ isn’t necessarily a good thing, then we each need to be pretty careful about what we follow, or passively let stand…I think it was Piaget who said, “Intelligence is the ability to adapt”…uh, yes and no!

Choices, choices, and too many more choices, it seems…but so what? How lucky are we that we can custom design what we choose to think about…we just need to be consciously awake!

Eckhart Tolle talks about how we all have an old story (or two…) we can drag around describing how we feel we’ve been victimized in our lives…the good thing is that if we choose not to identify with our story(ies), then we become free to live in the present moment where were can take control over our thoughts, and create the direction we want our lives to go in…definitely a positive direction!

I’m so happy that there’s a Earth-Friendly-Eco-Green-Positive-Spiritual Evolution goin’ on because what has been ‘Normal’ is shifting to a better ‘Normal’…people around the world are jumping on board because it’s the only hope we have for a good future…

If we don’t allow our minds to drift away in unconscious thought, we can all participate in the health of our lives, joy of our spirits, and renewed growth for our planet…

Choices, choices and more choices…we can handle them all! Let’s lean in the right direction with an awake mind, and create a fresh, new, ongoing ‘Normal’…that’ll keep getting better & better…how can it not?

Let’s be on board & feel proud of what we’re creating!

Be well & happy,

Randi B.
