There are many people who have spent lifetimes striving to reach their dreams and goals which they believe will one day make them happy. Yet, most find themselves addicted to the pursuit of their vision, and the fantasy of what may come, instead of actually enjoying being happy in their lives today. The truth is there are as many distractions inside us as there are on the outside of us, and they are ALL excuses that say it’s not possible to be happy right now. The secret we have discovered to becoming unstoppably happy is simply to see how happiness is not far away at all. It is always a choice readily available to you in each new moment.

No matter how people react in life, you don’t have to wallow in sadness, negativity or pain. You can choose to feel it momentarily and move on into joy and appreciation because it is simply an availalbe choice! However your choose to respond to those people in your outer world results in what experience you’re accepting on your inner world, and this greatly impacts how you feel about yourself. You are always interpreting situations and events in your life, so why not choose the response that opens those doors towards feelings of expansion, serenity, appreciation and continuous jubilation!
Happiness is a FEELING that is always available to you. It can be accessed instantly whenever you remember that acceptance, appreciation and self approval is always a choice. It is possible in each moment to love yourself and accept life exactly as it is. It’s that simple! Make the decision right now that NOTHING, yes absolutely nothing, can stop you from choosing joy, appreciation and relaxation in any moment. There is nothing more powerful than having this choice. When you accept this, you’ll discover a deeper freedom hidden inside you that is continuously emanating from the very core of your being.
“Act happy, feel happy, be happy, without a reason in the world. Then you can love, and do what you will.” ~ Dan Millman
How this came into existence was that one morning Margot woke up very early and proclaimed that she was going to be unstoppably happy. She decided that she was going to be happy NO MATTER WHAT came her way today! This proclamation started acting like a powerful energetic shield that protected her, and freed her from any negative thinking. It was evident that she felt liberated and was operating from a lighter place of gentleness and love. When negative comments were directed her way, she’d just deflect them with her “Unstoppable Happiness Shield”. Being vigilant of her thoughts, she did not let anyone drag her into the land of emotional negativity. This shield allowed her to feel safe and protected, so that she could relax deeper into the core of her being where the source of positive thinking abides.
We want you to know that you can do this same experiment with your life. Your state of mind is so precious and sacred. Dedicate your life to keeping it healthy, wealthy, free and loving. It’s good to know you can protect your mind from any negativity that comes your way. It can come in the form of other people’s bad moods, intensity, anxiety or negative words. You can sit safely behind your invincible happiness shield that allows yourself to relax deeper inside and experience those healing feelings that naturally emerge from your Divine essence. So, whenever you can, realize that your happiness is NOT at the mercy of your environment or other people’s states of mind. Know that you always have the power to create any state of mind you desire! By simply practicing the choice to be an unstoppable source of happiness you will experience just how powerful your thoughts really are!
“Happiness is a conscious choice, not an automatic response.” ~ Mildred Barthel.
Creating a permanent state of happiness is possible, yet can only happen when you’re FEELING safe, protected and at peace behind your unstoppable happiness shield. When you are freed from defending and protecting yourself in anyway, you instantly create a sense of spaciousness inside that leads into the greatest golden secret to becoming happy forever! This is spacious feeling cultivates a heightened state of awareness of your thoughts. The more awareness you have, the more you are conscious of each thought passing by, and the easier it is to step on the train which is always arriving in the land of appreciation and the town of “Bliss-ville”!
Greater awareness happens by slowing down in your life, so you can actually witness the thoughts that pass through your mind at lightening speeds. It is this wandering mind that is always taking you down the paths of despair and self pity. When you see that you are simply the watcher behind it, you are free from any thought patterns that float by. Yet you must cultivate a mind that will support you in slowing down and clearly seeing the thoughts that create your emotional states. This happens through the practice of being centered. This means you develop the ability to be quiet, calm, and serene….listening to the thoughts without buying into them. This is the only way to penetrate the deep seated chaos of the mind and remain unshaken by any thoughts that arise. The more you look inside towards who you truly are, the easier it becomes to discover the eternal joy that is your true nature.
“We tend to forget that happiness doesn’t come as a result of getting something we don’t have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.” ~ Fredrick Koeing
The feelings of joy and love can be cultivated to arise more frequently by focusing on what you are currently thankful for in your life right now. In each moment, there is a plethora of things to be grateful for. From 10,000 miles up in outer space you can easily see how we are all blessed to live on this awesome beautiful planet. Yet, there are always two sides to every coin. In any given situation you are given the choice to feel blessed, and you can also focus on what is not working and see things in a negative light. In each moment there always exists at least two choices. A person may miss their bus to work one day and can either focus on feeling late for work, or refocus on the beauty of the morning and how they get to enjoy the sunshine for a few more minutes until the next bus comes by. It simply boils down to when life hands you lemons, do you make lemonade or just suck on the lemon with sour puckering lips? Your reality is always a conscious choice!
“A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.” ~ Hugh Downs
It’s time to stop waiting for happiness to find you and choose to find the roses hidden in your inner garden. At your very core is an eternal rose bush blooming, radiating its beauty and fragrance for all to enjoy. Being in touch with the core of your being is pure happiness, and it naturally arises from within when you are relaxed. Nothing has to happen for happiness to continue to flow. This happiness IS HERE NOW because this divine creation inside of you is always rejoicing in it’s divine aliveness whether you are aware of it or not.
So when you wake up tomorrow morning, start your day by proclaiming to the world that you are choosing to be unstoppably happy NO MATTER WHAT happens! This will push you deeper inside to fin your true natural bliss-filled state at the core. Yet, after you proclaim this choice, gently remind yourself as you go through the day that you are committed to being unstoppably happy. Practice vigilance with your thoughts, and you will naturally see how easy it is to choose happiness over any negative thinking. It is always up to you. You have the power inside you to make those decisions that will make today the happiest day of your life!!
