The primary reason people are not as happy or fulfilled as they desire to be is that they do not know exactly what they want. Sometimes, even when they think they know what they want, they fool themselves because the object is desired for the wrong reasons. If this is “the first day of the rest of your life,” ask yourself exactly what you want to do with it. Your subconscious mind can then assist you in manifesting your desires.
Everyone wants happiness, but what that usually mean is that they want to end the unhappiness or conflict in their lives. That is certainly within their power, too, if they have clarity and are willing to act. But it’s not the same thing. True happiness is found internally, not externally. It is generated by a healthy attitude toward what happens in your life, by pursuing meaningful goals and by believing in yourself.
It is my belief that you must have goals or a strong general direction in order to take control of your life. When you don’t plan a life direction, you are making a choice, but inaction is no choice! Your subconscious mind generates the events in your life. If your thinking has been negative, you can be assured of moving toward potentially negative events. Thoughts are things—they create circumstances by programming your subconscious mind.
If you don’t have goals or lack clarity of intent, start exploring what you would really love to do—something so enjoyable that you’d be playing rather than working. Don’t even be logical in your search. When you become clear about what you want, everything will fall into place. Once you have pledged this direction, things begin to happen almost magically, as if you were a magnet drawing into your experience whatever is necessary for manifestation. The key to success is to have great emotional desire and no indecisiveness at all. The greater your emotional desire, the more energy you will generate to fulfill the goal.
You may want to meditate upon the clarity of your intent regarding your primary relationship, friends and family, career and level of success, spirituality, civic service, and any other area that is Important to you.
Peace and light,
