Yesterday we met and the master said: The storms of energies on the planet are intense now. Stay aligned with the light from above. Your friend is always on your side. You are following a divine plan. You have a job to do in these wired times. You are the light of your world. So surrender and feel what comes up. And don´t worry. You will always come up again. Feelings will not kill you!
If we are looking for happiness, we first of all have the impression of being powerless. We are often in circumstances that we understand as an expression of our powerlessness. We go to work, buy, cook, eat, clean up, prepare for the next day and spend another two hours watching TV. Our discussions are usually in the same direction. We fall asleep tired and seldom wonder if we’ve gotten closer to our happiness today. Others of us live alone and have a lot of free time. They may try to kill their boredom by hanging out in front of the computer, drinking alcohol or doing sports. Many of us are waiting for the day when happiness appears. But this day always seems to be just as far in the future as last year. Is it even in our power to find happiness or are we at the mercy of a chaotic world that pushes us around ruthlessly? The good news is that all we have to do is stop doing the wrong thing. Then happiness and peace will naturally flow into our lives as well as their external representatives friendship, prosperity, love, security. The power is already in us. However, it eludes the access of our ego. This is the voice of our limited identity that babbles incessantly in our heads. This voice complains, criticizes and sends us on an eternal search for something that it can not recognize. Therefore, when we listen to that voice, we are doomed to a fruitless search. The higher aspect of our self, on the other hand, is always loved, connected and loved. This higher self sends us joy, inspiration, enthusiasm and love. Our goal should be to listen more and more to this voice, which shows itself in an inner intuition. First, however, we must go the path of feeling to become clear enough inside to allow and understand higher energies. In short, we are crossing the bridge from powerlessness to power, where we stop resisting the things that appear in our awareness, be they external or internal appearances. When we stop judging, we will grow in power, greatness, and happiness, and the world will become smaller. The awakening of the Buddha meant nothing other than the realization that the whole universe was in his mind. This experience is not beyond our reach. It’s not that difficult to get them temporarily, as we may think. But it is difficult to stay in this bliss the whole time.
Have you ever had the impression that the friends, acquaintances and guests who celebrated with you at a party had found the secret of happiness, but not you? Do you feel imperfect? Are you working hard to improve? Have you ever thought about changing your body? Have you suffered from your mistakes and imperfections that you thought others would love or appreciate less? If so, then welcome to the human family! We all have a voice in our heads that does not stop commenting on our lives with their negative talk. Every human being, on this planet who has accomplished something great, even something as great as the attainment of happiness, had to fight against this ego voice. Which way did the winners of this fight go against the inner adversary? How have primitive peoples around the world managed to preserve the innocence and happiness of childhood? Why have some cultures banned competitions and only played games where there were no losers? The answer to these questions is in your hands! But please be patient.
We in the West have been brought up to the belief that happiness can be gained through effort. However, if we were lucky, we were happy as children without effort. Then we were taught to go to school and do things we much less liked than romping, playing, and painting. We should go to school to later regain the happiness that was lost to us now as adults. Most of us have never recovered that happiness. The whole socialization was only intended to alienate us from ourselves. People who have lost themselves have to search and they mostly seek out in the outside, where their soul is not. These people are reliable members of society because they want to earn money to realize their dreams in the outdoors. Our society is based on mutual dependence. If we were all free and independent of industry offerings, we would not be so easily governed. We would not accept many things in our lives if we could feel our soul stronger. That’s why it’s good that many people today are on the path of inner awakening. It is a liberation movement that goes deeper than the 1960s hippy revolution that was directed against the Vietnam War and issued “Make Love Not War!”, With the term “love” having a strong sexual meaning. Today we know that we do not just become better people when we go to bed together. Also not necessarily happier. The happiness we chase after seems more like the scent of roses rising in certain chapels of the two Marys, the Mother of Jesus and the Magdalene, sometimes without reason and disappearing again. Happiness is fleeting and eludes our access until we fulfill its conditions and it illuminates itself. Luckily, there are methods that can bring it out. These are passed on in this book. They are not where we suspect them.
