HJ: If you are looking outside yourself for reasons why you are unhappy then stop — that is, unless you want to continue to be unhappy. The universe is a quantum mirror — it reflects back to us our internal state. In essence, we project our internal state outward and onto other people, things, objects, etc… and then it is reflected back to us and we think — ‘Why is this happening to me?!’. Nothing is happening TO you — you are creating your experience. When you can shift your personal perceptions from external awareness to internal awareness, you have taken a major step in addressing your happiness issues.
Work on yourself and your external reality will make a corresponding shift. Is that not the essence of the article below? What is the common theme between these 7 points? They are all reflections of your inner state. You cannot attain lasting happiness by changing external circumstances. You must do the inner work. Do not shy away, it is not anymore difficult than you make it. It can be a cakewalk or a struggle — which will you choose?
A tip — don’t try to tackle everything at once. Address one issue at a time. One foot in front of the other. Oftentimes by addressing one core issue, many symptomatic manifestations will vanish simultaneously, so why spend your time chasing clouds? Go to the root of the tree if you wish to get rid of it. Simply cutting off leaves and branches will get you nowhere fast.
