  1. The Secret of Happiness


    What is the secret of Happiness?  There is no definite answer, sometimes we search throughout our lives to try to pin this sensation down, it is like pinning a butterfly down, or catching a fly.  No one thing or person can make happiness appear.  It is a collection of minute happenings, the birth of a child, a marriage to someone you love, seeing your child happy and content with their life, seeing something awesome in nature, all these fascinations bring an element of that what we call happiness.

    But, true happiness lies within us, it doesn’t need anything at all.  It is loving the person you are, never doubting you are a marvel and a wonderful being.  Accepting whatever happens you are loved for who you are. 

    During the trials and tribulations of my life I have tried to learn acceptance and letting go, this has been very hard.  I have been tested so much along the pathway that there have been times when I just wanted to give up and put the covers over my head and not take part in life.  I am a very optimistic person so when these times come I then must pull on my beliefs and the knowledge that I will be given help if I just ask. 

    So, have faith, never give in, always love yourself then others will love you for who are.

    There is a quote by Martin Buber:

    To begin with oneself, but not to end with oneself:

    To start from oneself, but not to aim at oneself:

    To Comprehend oneself, but not to be preoccupied with oneself



    Love and light


  2. She smiled at a sorrowful stranger.  The smile seemed to make him feel better.

    He remembered the past kindness of a friend and wrote him a thank-you letter.

    The Friend was so pleased with the thank-you letter that he left a large tip after lunch.

    The waitress, surprised by the size of the tip bet the whole thing on a hunch.

    The next day she picked up her winnings, and gave part to a man on the street.

    The man on the street was grateful; for two days he’d had nothing to eat.

    After he finished his dinner, he left for his small, dingy room.

    He didn’t know at that moment, that he might be facing his doom.

    On the way he picked up a shivering puppy, and took him home to get warm.

    The puppy was very grateful to be in out of the storm.

    That night the house caught on fire, the puppy barked the alarm.

    He barked till he woke the whole household and saved everybody from harm.

    One of the boys that he rescued, grew up to be a famous rock star

    All because of a that simple smile, it grew and went far!
