Happiness & Wishes

Happiness & Wishes

Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. ~ Helen Keller

Wishes for happiness can come true and I can tell you how to make it happen.  Find a fountain, one you can sit at the edge of, even better if you can dip your toes in the water.  Bring a penny with you and sit cross-legged at the edge or dip your toes if you like.   Close your eyes and empty your mind, listen to nothing but the sound of your breathing and the water trickling in the fountain.  Feel the penny in your hand, roll it around, feel the surface of the coin, try to feel the shape of Abraham Lincoln.  Take the coin on to your thumb and flip it into the air, listen for it to hit the water, as it does, imagine exactly what will make you happy in your life, your happiness wish fulfilled.

Then, get up off your butt and start doing what you need to do in your life to make it happen.  Wishes are nice, a great way to focus yourself on your desires, but in the end we get what happiness we work for in this world.  I saw a great twitter post today that gave a definition of happiness that I really liked.  Happiness is having passion for that which will make you happy (your wish), plus the purpose to work for that wish in your life, and the gratitude for the happiness you have already have achieved.

Good luck on your journey my friends and have a happy day ~ Rev Kane
