The search for elusive happiness goes on… and on… and on. When happiness is a destination — the search is never ending.
Think about that.
Meantime here is a story:
A cat died and went to Heaven. God met her at the gates and said, “Anything you want is yours for the asking.”
The cat thought for a minute and then said, “All my life I lived on a farm and slept on hard wooden floors I would like a real fluffy pillow to sleep on.”
God said, “Say no more.” Instantly the cat had a huge fluffy pillow.
A few days later, six mice were killed in an accident and they all went to Heaven together. God met the mice at the gates with the same offer that He made to the cat.
The mice said, “Well, we have had to run all of our lives: from cats, dogs, and even people with brooms! If we could just have some little roller skates, we would not have to run again.”
God answered, “It is done.” All the mice had beautiful little roller skates.
About a week later, God decided to check on the cat. He found her sound asleep on her fluffy pillow. God gently awakened the cat and asked, “Is everything okay? How have you been doing? Are you happy?”
The cat replied, “Oh, it is WONDERFUL. I have never been so happy in my life. The pillow is so fluffy, and those little Meals on Wheels you have been sending over are delicious!”
If life gets you down… stay down — get on your knees and pray that you can become helpful and that giving to others will awaken you to yourself — to the person that God made you to be. You can do that. Begin each day with a little success at being willing to do God’s Will. The universe may seem more loving for you. Life always has surprises and challenges and you won’t like some of them — at least until you can master being Love. Only God is absolute pure Love — we are copies and we were made from clay (matter). Clay got a soul (life-force energy) and that soul must find its way home — to divine Love. Pray and meditate — eliminate negativity. Feed yourself and bath and make goals that are kind and inclusive of those that you already partner with on your path to freedom and loving joy. Make it a priority to learn everything about being Love. Genuine happiness is in giving of caring unconditionally for one another. We are in need of working on this — our most essential human task.
