It's difficult to clearly see our own lives, but psychics connect with people on a deeper level. Talented psychics examine where you're at in life and help you move forward. Here are some specific areas in which psychics can be of service:
  • When you've lost someone. Talking to a psychic can expedite the healing process. A psychic might tap into the other side or remove negative energy from your mind, replacing it with positive energy.

  • When you have an unresolved problem or question. Often psychics cannot tell you what to do, but they can advise you on what not to do.

  • Help you avoid harmful patterns. Psychics often go back and explore who you are as well as what you've done. Doing this, they find patterns that aren't beneficial to your life.

  • Help bring clarity to an issue. Talking to a psychic can help you clarify what you already know but refuse to admit.

Golden Age Messages from the Masters: Living in the Joy of the Season Part II

Golden Age Messages
from the Masters
Living in the Joy of the Season 
Part II

As you become increasingly more aware of the Presence of God within you and within one another, you all become living demonstrations of what it looks and feels like to live in Unity or Christ Consciousness where Divine Love is the foundational essence within the heart of every soul around your world. This is truly a cause to celebrate and a reason to keep expressing the everlasting joy of the season so it does not end in December, yet rather continues throughout your glorious New Year.
Many are reaching out for your love and support to alleviate their suffering, yet their suffering is truly an illusion that they can transmute out of their consciousness if they let themselves remember that they are one with God and LOVE is all they are. The Love and Light of the Creator within you is truly a gift that you can extend into every heart. It has taken many centuries for humankind to finally consider that separation from God and from each other is truly a myth and that Oneness with all of life is your everlasting reality and the ongoing joy that you are all here to share with one another. 
Jeshua and Mother Mary    

Many desires often rise to the surface during the holidays, yet if one goes deeper into what is truly driving these desires, they would discover that the core of their often insatiable desires are really being driven by the deep yearning of the soul to reunite with its God Presence. If this desire is not met, the soul will keep returning to Earth in the hopes of satisfying this ancient longing to live on Earth as the Presence of God and to relate with others Presence-to-Presence. Only the fulfillment of these primary desires will really bring lasting satisfaction to the soul. This is the main reason you are here at this pivotal time.

Living as your Presence means living in the moment, and that, beloveds, is not easy for most human beings. As a culture you have conditioned and trained yourselves to place the great majority of your attention into the future or the past or on what is going on around you, rather that what is going on within you. What most people do not realize is that placing so much attention on the outer or on the future or the past creates stress and it keeps you from living as your Presence since the Presence only lives in the moment.

Many of you are reducing your tendencies to be distracted by the illusionary concepts, perceptions and desires that have so often kept the mind a prisoner of the desires of the ego. When the mind of your Presence takes charge, the energy of desire no longer has the power to create a false sense of lack. When you put your attention on what permanently satisfies your soul and brings eternal joy, you naturally become a magnet for manifesting what is in alignment with your Divine Crystalline Blueprint for these times.

Human beings have been deeply conditioned to believe that they must be, or do something amazing in order to have value in the world, yet in truth you do not have to do anything to be connected with Source as that is your true value and you are already are THAT. When you rest in the core essence of the Divine Being you already are, you will discover that desiring can sometimes be a hindrance to experiencingthe naturally blissful state of your Presence.  

As your Presence, you become a cherished demonstration of one who is living in an ongoing state of love, joy, peace and gratitude.  When you choose to be authentically grateful for everything and everyone in your life, you instantly move into a stronger alignment with the joy that is natural to your Presence and your heart keeps expanding until it becomes a powerful magnet for attracting the people, the opportunities and the experiences that will fulfill your soul’s true purpose in this embodiment.
Perhaps the greatest secret to living in a state of joy comes from being fully present in the moment and accepting that moment exactly as it is. When you do this, you can instantly access your true Divine Nature and stop worrying about the past or the future.
Living in joy is a conscious choice that can be made no matter your personal circumstances and regardless of what is occurring in the world around you. This is the great gift that comes with living as your Presence.
Appreciate one another this season and be fully grateful for having an opportunity to celebrate one another as you usher in another year of new beginnings!

All of us at the Ascended Masters Mystery School wish you and yours a most blessed new year of peace, joy and abundance. May you all be living demonstrations of Divine Love as you co-create a new Golden Age of Freedom.

You are the Light of the World

Beloved ones, you are entering into the most powerful time of the year. It is the time of the held breath, that space between the out-breath and the in-breath. The release of the old year and the advent of the new one. It is a time when the veil of time is ended briefly and you are naked to the light. It is a time when you are brought fully into the remembrance of God you are. A time when you recognize yourselves as the living and glorious Christ, the pure heart of Love.
In this time between the celebration of the Christ-Mass, that great hymn of Love arising from every human heart, to the advent of the new experience of the calendar and the forward motion of the wheel of time once again - in that space between, you are free to remember the light. In this place of deep silence and pure Spirit, the only thing keeping you from the experience of your God self is the thin illusion of the ego. The ego has to work harder than ever in this time to keep you from noticing what is really happening.
This is one reason why so many of you find the holidays difficult. Although you have many ideas of what brings on these feelings, most of them having to do with memories, the truth is, only when you are turned away from what is happening can the ego keep control of your idea of who you are. For all around you the light is blazing and the cosmos is yours to touch. You are alive to the limitless wonder of being the heart of God. And everything that you believe that earth is disappears into the reality of particles of living and extraordinary light.
This is the space where what is Real comes to meet you and to lift you up to bring home to you the truth: That those words that were spoken by Jeshua are deeply true of yourself: "I Am the light of the world".
This is the time where the light is clear, the veil is open, the reality of God I Am is shining into your consciousness. This is the moment of the held breath where activity ceases, where nothing is happening but pure unadulterated Love and the light that it generates.
So as you enter into this sacred space as the wheel of time is turning, in that moment where one year falls away and another is about to begin and the light of the Christos is shining clearly as so many hearts remember it, beloved ones turn to embrace the experience, to feel what it means to be free. Even if that freedom is for one second, you will never be the same again because the constructs of the ego that have created this duality will never be able to hold you again in the same way.
You are the light of the world. This shining, limitless luminosity is who you are. This crystalline, exploding, spectacular awakening of the great consciousness of God is yours. This, dearest ones, is what is happening in this moment of the turning of the year.
The song of Love is in every heart now and the reality of what has come to earth to live once again. The pure availability of the Love I Am alive as every heart and the pure light awake as every glorious consciousness. These are the things that are calling you to be clear about what is happening. To stand firm in the presence of what is holy and limitless. To be alive to that which is eternal within you. And to refuse, beloved ones, to miss this because of the ego mind's busyness.
Whether or not you celebrate holidays or acknowledge the Christ as it manifested in Jesus, your heart knows what is being celebrated here. And what is celebrated is the truth of Love that you are and the light that you are ever more shining. This light is so clear it reaches into all that is and brings to you the ability to see and Love the whole of God. This light is making itself known once again in the world, as the world, illuminated by your hearts.
Come into the moment of stillness beyond time that is made available to you with the turning of every year. But beloved ones, this light is so much stronger now than ever before and it will not be denied as it blazes through your being and illuminates the truth of Love you are that you might never pretend, ever again, to be less than the glory of God.
The song of Love knows itself as your heart, beloved ones. It sings out in celebration of the Love that is ever more deeply present, making itself known in every precious life. It blazes forth to the light the fires of God in every consciousness on earth.
You do not need a bridge across this gulf of time, though it might seem that you are called to focus on so many things that need your attention. Let this be instead your spiritual practice: to deeply connect to the period where the light is fully available and the veil of time is non-existent though the mind might pretend otherwise.
From the moment of the advent of the Christ in acknowledgment of hearts opening, to the moment when the new year begins turning time forward for everyone here in the construct of linear time, in that space between that which you name Christmas and that which you call New Years is a deep and powerful awakening of the pure light of God. It is alive in you as your consciousness and your ability to see Me and the whole of Love, everywhere in everything, and to acknowledge it deep within you as the truth of your being.
You are the light of the world. And this light can never be dimmed. Right now it is time to remember that you are the vehicle of freedom. That the light that shines in you now can see the truth in every illusion, open every construct of armoring, bring you into the whole that you might be the blazing comet of the awakening of Love.
The world of course is not what it seems. But the consensual dream is firmly in place except for this time of the year, this opening when the veil is non-existent and you are naked to the light, totally free of the dream of duality, alive to the shining experience of the eternity of your being.
You are the light of the world. And as you choose to be free of the ideas of time and egoic consciousness, you are that which shall bring illumination. Not only as the pure light of God but to the ego-mind as well. That penetrated by pure Love, the veil can fall away and every precious heart return to the truth of Love once more.
You are the light of the world. And beloved ones these are words of power. They assist you to take back within yourself that which you have projected outside. That rather than looking to Jeshua and to other enlightened ones who have carried this message of light and Love across the ages, you can at last bring it back within, as you must do with everything that you've believed has been outside of you. When you take back the reality of the light of God it blazes up from deep within and you realize that everything that you have named in another is true of the pure light in you as well. When acknowledged, this light within truly does light the world and illumine every human consciousness, returning it to its divinity.
You are the light of the world. Let this truth light your way to stepping free from every idea of being limited, of searching through time for your awakening. Let the light truly shine that you might see what is already here.
While it is always possible to make this turn, to become the fully conscious illumination of God, there are also certain times of the world, of the year, in which all of the energies of creation are with you, assisting you to this end. And the turning of the year is one of them. Begun by the Christos, the conscious heart of God I Am that is your deepest truth, propelled by your deep commitment to live this Love for the world, to actively be of service in the remembrance of the truth of Love.
Now you burn with intensity. You are pure light fueled by life. And beloved ones, how you shine and how easily the little mind is returned to the pure consciousness of God I Am. That one little piece of the consciousness of the whole that has been pretending to be separate from Love and from the light it is always generating is now illuminated, beloved ones, effortlessly and you are free to be this purity, to be the light that shines forever, bringing everyone the ability to truly see what is within them, and thus before them, as their experience of the world.
This truth has made its home in you. That which you live in the world is the reflection of what is held in your hearts. In this time, beloved ones, between the ending and the beginning, between the acknowledgment of the light of Christ that is all of humanity and the forward motion of creation that has been perceived as time, in this space you can easily reach into the truth of our deepest communion and joyously become the star of My heart illuminating all that is.
Each year this time is sacred and powerful but there is a building of momentum now that will not be stopped. That which has begun as your beautiful heart's remembrance of Love creates such a resonance, such a movement of joy, that it generates the light that illuminates the whole and certainly can illuminate the world.
Be clear and strong in your choice for Love and your willingness to stop and to experience the now. To not get caught in the incessant movement of the little mind as it scrambles to create a bridge across this moment of true power so you don't notice what is happening. Stop and feel, beloved ones, feel the Love. Experience the illumination that is the result of its awakening in you.
Let your consciousness distill the truth until it fills the space where the ego has dwelled and echos through the whole of your being. The truth of Love you are and the light inherent in it becomes the words, "I Am the light of the world". When you acknowledge this and feel it, you realize true responsibility: that it is you beloved ones, who are here to show the way. To be the light that others see by. To illuminate the shadows until the story of darkness can no longer be seen anywhere.
"I Am the light of the world." This truth is alive in you now. The more deeply that you proclaim this, the more powerfully it is felt. The more wide awake you are to the miracle of Creation, the more available you are to serve humankind in stepping free of the illusion of separation from Love and the constructs of the ego that support it. Until humankind can see clearly because the light is everywhere and every precious heart sings the hymn of the Christos, "I Am the light of the world".
"I Am the light of the world." As you feel this truth deep within you, you can experience every part of of your being remembering that every quark, every electron, every conscious heartbeat is clear, illumined by the light you are, joyously accepted and consciously wielded for others.
Oh beloved ones, when you say these words and let our communion expand them to the true volume that is completely holographic and eternal, that rockets through your being and shines everywhere, at last you are powered from within, creating the world now, to be clearly seen in the light as the vision of perfect Love -- the great heart of the living Christ that is humanity, making itself manifest now.

How to Make the Law of Attraction Work For You

The Law of Attraction is always in effect.  The key is to begin working with it in a way that brings you more of what you want and less of what you dont want.  The key to doing this is getting control of your thoughts and removing limting beliefs.  These two factors influence your vibration and emotions, which are the what ultimately control what the law of attraction brings you.  Your beliefs dictate your thoughts, which create your emotional patterns.  If you try to change your thoughts without addressing your beliefs, the change will only be temporary and when you remove your mental vigilance, your thoughts will revert back to your original patterns based on your beliefs.  Therefore in order to make lasting changes in your thought patterns, you must fundamentally alter your beliefs.  This will in turn keep your thoughts in alignment with whatever you have chosen to believe, which for manifestation and spiritual purposes, should be something expansive, unlimited and abundance affirming.  When you make these changes, then you simply need direct your thoughts towards the general things you wish to attract or create in your life and the universe will do the rest, bringing you a more perfect realization of them than you ever could have imagined yourself.
The article below by Abraham via Esther and Jerry Hicks will give you many further insights into how to make the law of attraction work for you.
- Truth

You Get What You Think, Whether you want it or not
Everything you need to know about the Law of Attraction.
THE LAW OF ATTRACTION always yields to you the essence of the balance of your thoughts. No exceptions. You get what you think about— whether you want it or not. And in time, with practice, you will come to remember that the Law of Attraction is always consistent.
It never tricks you. It never deceives you. It never confuses you, for the Law of Attraction responds precisely to the vibration that you are offering. But the confusion, for many, comes because they are offering vibrations that they do not realize they are offering. They know that they hold a desire in a specific direction, and they know that their desire has not yet come to them, but what they often do not realize is that they are offering the majority of their thoughts in opposition to their own desire.
Once you understand your own Emotional Guidance System, you will never again offer your vibrations in ignorance. And in time, you will achieve such keen awareness of your own valuable emotions that you will know, in every moment, if the thought that you are currently focusing on is taking you toward, or away from, something you desire. You will learn to literally feel your way to the things that you desire, on all subjects.

The basis of your world is one of Well-Being. You can allow it or not, but the basis is Well-Being. The Law of Attraction says: That which is like unto itself, is drawn. And so, the essence of whatever you give your attention to is unfolding in your experience. Therefore, there is nothing that you cannot be, do, or have. This is Law.

It is important that you know these things about the Law of Attraction:
  • You are a physical extension of Source Energy.
  • The physical world you live in provides a perfect environment in which to create.
  • The variety that exists helps you focus your own personal desires or preferences.
  • When a desire is focused within you, the summoning of Creative Life Force immediately begins to flow toward your desire—and the Universe expands. And that is good.
  • Your conscious realization of the Creative Process is not necessary in order for it to continue.
  • The Leading-Edge environment that you are physically focused in will continue to stimulate new desires in all who participate. Every desire or preference, no matter how large or small it may seem to you, is understood and answered by All-That-Is.
  • As every desire from every perceiver is answered, the Universe expands.
  • As the Universe expands, the variety expands.
  • As the variety expands, your experience expands.
  • As your experience expands, your desire expands.
  • As your desire expands, the answering of your desire expands.
  • And the Universe expands—and that is good. In fact, it is perfect.
  • You live in an eternally expanding environment, which constantly causes newly focused desires within you, which Source immediately and always answers.
  • With each receiving of that which you are asking for, you achieve a new vantage point from which you spontaneous ask again.
And so, the expansion of the Universe and your personal expansion will always be as follows:
— You live in an expanding Universe.
— You live in an expanding physical world.
— You are an expanding Being.
And all of this is, whether you consciously understand it or not.
— This Universe is eternally expanding, and so are you.
— And that is good.
We eagerly offer our perspective to you for one reason only: so that you mayconsciously participate in your own delicious expansion. Your expansion is a given; the expansion of your time-space reality is a given, and the expansion of this Universe is a given. It is just ever so much more satisfying for you to consciously and deliberately participate in your own expansion.

Forgiveness and Release are a major way in which we purify in preparation for ascension to 5th dimensional consciousness.  As we do so, it is helpful to understand our Soul purpose for this incarnation.
Before we incarnated, we—with the help of our spirit guides—created a Soul Contract in which we planned the means by which we would achieve our Soul purpose.  We contracted with other human beings to play particular roles in our life so that we could be sure to learn successfully the lessons we incarnated to learn.  Thus, each individual in our lives who played an influential role—parent, sibling, child, relative, lover, partner, spouse, boss, close friend—all have been in your life for a reason.  The role each played may have been painful or joyous, with many degree-shades in between.
We chose to incarnate on Earth’s plane of duality because suffering is a more rapid way in which to learn.  As long as life flows smoothly, we make few changes.  A traumatic relationship or event stimulates us to meet the challenge and overcome it.  We grow spiritually in the process.  As we look back over our lives, we can see people or events that were challenging, but about whom/what we can say, “I’m so glad that happened or that person was in my life because otherwise I would not have learned all that I did.  In truth, it was the best thing that could have happened!”  These will be the people or events that are a part of your Soul Contract.
If the individual or event played a painful role, it was so we could learn the lessons our Soul desired.  Keep in mind that we also are playing a particular role in their lives as well.  While they help us learn, we are assisting them to learn their lessons.  Most, if not all, of this role playing is performed from the subconscious level.  We cloak ourselves in forgetfulness when we enter the plane of duality.  Few remember anything about the Soul Contract, although we frequently recognize an individual upon meeting.  We say, “I feel like I have known him/her all of my life.”
A great way to evaluate our lives … to forgive and release the actions of others … is to study your Soul Purpose … consider all those who played a role in helping us achieve that purpose … understand that had they not played that role we may not  have attained the goals of our Soul.  Once we understand the vital role each played in our lives, we realize THERE IS NOTHING TO FORGIVE.  Instead, we want to thank them.  Remember, those who played a painful role LOVED US ENOUGH TO DO SO.
Your Soul Purpose is revealed by the astrological sign in which your Sun is located.  This location is determined by the date of birth.  Find your Sun sign below … use the information to look back at your life … consider all the major persons/events in your life.  As you do so, you will find that your life has unfolded in a constructive manner, regardless of the ways in which it did so. 
Success = achieving your Soul Purpose
Contrary to what our world teaches us, success is not based on your status in the world.  To achieve success in the world’s eyes is not why you incarnated.
You incarnated to successfully complete your Soul’s purpose.
AN ARIES INCARNATION (March 21-April 21) is an important lifetime.  It offers opportunities for establishing a strong sense of ego-identity; for learning to set boundaries; and, by learning to use the intellect and intuitive mind, to develop a sense of separateness as a unique human being.  What is initiated in ARIES will be the basis from which the soul expresses for the next eleven incarnations       through the zodiac.  During the ARIES incarnation, the soul experiences inner resourcefulness and self-reliance.  It is an opportunity to learn that the I AM is the SELF.  A balance between polarities, ARIES & Libra, can be achieved through building a lasting, happy marriage or partnership.  ARIES learns how to move forward, even if it is through a dark tunnel.  Optimism is eternal; ARIES knows there is light at the end of the tunnel.

A TAUREAN INCARNATION (April 21-May 22) offers the opportunity to develop an enlightened value system that transcends attachment to material possessions and persons.  TAURUS learns through experiences with the physical.  The ultimate goal is to infuse matter with Spirit.  TAURUS is seeking a balance between being serious over responsibilities and allowing greed to overwhelm her.  In TAURUS, the instincts and passions are confronted.  There can be a great deal of inertia to overcome.  This inertia can be beautifully transformed into the capacity for outstanding meditative concentration.

GEMINI INCARNATION (May 22-June 21) is a most important one because GEMINI is attuned to the dualities in life, accepts their existence, and learns to rise above the plane of duality, via the Rainbow Bridge, into the One.  GEMINI, in turn, is to communicate that knowledge with others.  Synthesis of the myriad facts, sought out by GEMINI, into a meaningful whole that can be shared with others is a major goal for GEMINI.

A CANCER INCARNATION (June 21-July 21) offers the opportunity to get in touch with the feelings and to learn to control and constructively channel emotions into creative and humanitarian endeavors.  CANCER marks the beginning of a new cycle of evolution and the building of a strong inner foundation upon which to base future spiritual evolution.  CANCER is to learn to “let go” all the familiar signposts of security and to move out into the world.  It is an opportunity to develop the qualities of compassion and nourishment.

A LEO INCARNATION (July 22-August 22) is an important one, for it offers the opportunity to both develop the ego and to surrender the ego to the Self.  This task is vital to the positive ongoing nature of Soul unfoldment.  LEO cannot learn to merge with the Whole until he has awakened to his own unique role as the Part.  For this reason, LEO must go through a stage of development in which he is focused on self/ego.  Creative self-expression is vital to this process.  LEO’s task is self-mastery; LEO’s quest is for Wholeness.

A VIRGO INCARNATION (August 21-September 22) offers the opportunity to achieve the Christed Consciousness through the synthesis of the lower bodies into a soul-centered means of service to humanity.  VIRGO serves as an expression of self/Self.

A LIBRA INCARNATION (September 21-October 21) presents the opportunity for the soul to rest before moving into the transformative struggles that characterize Scorpio.  A LIBRA INCARNATION relates to the 7th Day of Creation, a karmic hiatus.  A sense of self has been achieved during incarnations in the first 6 zodiac signs; now a day of rest is permissible.  A LIBRA INCARNATION will focus on relationships, on balancing the personality and the soul while relating to the external world.

A SCORPIO INCARNATION (October 21-November 21) is a pivotal incarnation during which she will either progress or retrogress.  Beginning early in life, much past life karma will be resolved, either consciously or unconsciously.  Nothing is frivolous; everything is important to SCORPIO.  SCORPIO is the way out of the personality life—in her, the Way of the Disciple is revealed.  The process of death to the lower self and resurrection into the Higher Self is the path of SCORPIO.  SCORPIO’s struggles will include dealing with past life residue while attempting to reach for the Soul.  She must descend into her depths in order to ascend into her heights.

A SAGITTARIUS INCARNATION (November 21-December 21) marks the final stage of an alchemical purification.  This process will often begin with an injury to the physical body, especially the hip.  SAGITTARIUS is to evolve from being unable to dismount from his horse (the Centaur) >>> to the Knight who has conquered his animal nature and may now dismount when he chooses >>> to the Knight who rides while aiming his arrow of one-pointed devotion skyward to the source of all Wisdom.  SAGITTARIUS is to become the One-Pointed Disciple whose arrow signifies the shaft of light released from his Higher Mind in order to bring about an expanded awareness in the lives of humanity.

A CAPRICORN INCARNATION (December 21-January 21) involves the search for dharma, or a mission in life.  Following the initiatory process of CAPRICORN, she is ready to serve humanity—she has earned her place among the World Servers.  The spiritual work accomplished through CAPRICORN must crystallize and be grounded on the Earth.  It involves the correct harnessing of Earth’s resources.

AN AQUARIAN INCARNATION (January 22-February 21) involves the search for the Holy Grail.  AQUARIUS must go alone, and in his own way, into the dark forest on his search for the Holy Grail.  His journey can be lonely at times.  The work of the AQUARIAN soul is to surrender his will to the Divine Will for the greater good of the Whole.  AQUARIUS is to be the Angel Waterbearer to the whole of       humanity.

A PISCES INCARNATION (February 21-March 21) involves the search for the inner Castle of Peace.  It is in PISCES that the Victory of Love is to be won.  The meaning of PISCES is found as she learns to take the journey into her creative unconscious, where her spirit is refreshed, where a period of inactivity in the outer world can restore her ability to heal and serve in that outer world.   Time spent in the unconscious—reading, meditating, creating, writing, composing music—is absolutely essential to PISCES’ well-being.  To deny this part of self is for PISCES (more so than the other zodiac energies) to deny her Soul.  PISCES is the sign of rebirth as the Divine Child.

The 3 Building Blocks of Lasting Happiness in Life

Lasting happiness in life comes from understanding and embracing the three building blocks that give rise to it.   Happiness comes from a change in how you interpret and  perceive events and circumstances in your life.  As such, we all contain the potential for lasting happiness and it can be embraced at any moment we choose.  The challenge is that we have all picked up maladaptive patterns and ways of interpreting our lives that keep us locked into patterns of suffering and struggle.
For example, rigid ideals of right and wrong cause us incalculable pain and suffering because, in reality, right and wrong are simply artificial concepts that we impose as judgements on our own and others lives.  The truth is that all events are neutral and but small parts of a larger mosiac of life and consciousness unfolding in the universe.  Even tragic events have a purpose and lesson to teach us if we are wise enough to recognize them.  It is only when we release our concepts of right and wrong that we can begin to see things as they really are.  This release moves us dramatically towards true, lasting happiness in life.  This concept may seem radical because it is not a common perspective in our society, but this simply highlights the collective illusion in which we all live before awakening to our deeper spiritual selves.
Richard Harvey does a beautiful job below of presenting the three core building blocks upon which happiness is built.  These are timeless, spiritual principles that have liberated seekers from suffering for countless millennia.  Do not be deceived by their simplicity as they are extremely powerful and highly transformative.

How to Be Happy: the Three Principles
I am going to tell you how to be happy. But before I do I am going to tell you a story. This story is about how I forgot about happiness.
It was one summer and I was one of the group facilitators at a personal growth holiday on a Greek island. In this collective community, people ate, socialized and took group workshops and courses together. I was giving a therapy workshop and running an early morning meditation. It was going well and people seemed to think I had something to offer. One lunchtime we were sitting around digesting our delicious food and sipping tea when one of the group members asked me, “How do you become happy?” “Aw, you’re not still trying to do that are you?” I remarked sardonically. The questioner withered and onlookers murmured their admiration; one or two told me later that they thought I was “spiritually advanced”. But the truth was that I was jaded about happiness. So to defend myself, I acted as if it was beneath me. I took more pride in the struggle, the application of effort and the ordeal. In a way I had gone from wanting happiness to boycotting it and by a kind of emotional logic it seemed to be a real place that I had arrived in. What I didn’t know was that it wasn’t the end. All my life I had made advances and arrived somewhere and thought to myself, “Oh, I get it, this is it; this must be it.” But of course it never is, because there’s always further to go. That’s how it was with happiness, I found out later when, stumbling in the darkness where all the best discoveries are made, I encountered happiness in an entirely new way. This time it wasn’t the focus, the goal or even the intention. This time it was merely a side-effect, a perk—it arose in an unexpected manner, expansive and unassailable, when I remembered happiness..
o, I am going to tell you how to be happy. Really happy or genuinely happy…not pretends happy. There are three rules or attitudes to remember and practice. Practice is the key element here. It is not and never is enough to know, to collect knowledge and become clever. Real intelligence is recognizing the need to practice, what to practice and how to practice it. These are the three principles:
The First Principle is Love
The Second Principle is Forgive
The Third Principle is Accept

The First Principle is Love

We are usually unaware of our mood or temper, even less aware of our habitual state of mind and oblivious to our customary emotions and behavior. This principle begins with a new practice that doesn’t even challenge the status quo. It begins where you want to be – happy. I want you to cultivate the disposition of love. You are used to a disposition of irritation, of frustration or hurt or anger or sadness or depression. Now whatever your previous disposition was, replace it with the disposition of love. This means that your prevailing tendency, your mood and your temperamental makeup will from now on become one of warmth, kindness and consideration, inclining toward your fellow human beings with tolerance and generosity. And not only to them, but to all other sentient beings as well as inanimate objects and all events and circumstances. You become gentler with yourself, more inclined towards reconciliation and forgiveness (which is the second principle).
Here is the exercise to start you off. First imagine love extending to those closest to you. The easiest ones for you to love include your family, children, husband, wife, partner, boy/girlfriend, mother, father, relatives, work colleagues and special friends.
Then extend this love feeling into your slightly more distant acquaintances. Using your life activities as a guide, bring more and more people to mind as you extend the field further and further outward toward people to whom you are only tacitly connected, but who nonetheless feature in your life.
Now what begins to come to light is that you see that some people are harder for you to love than others and it is these ones you are now going to concentrate on.
Dismiss negative thoughts about these people. They are the real challenge for you. For it is these people who will enable you to increase the feeling of love in you. Increasing your inner experience of love allows you to expand and extend your heart—and this is the important part—the love you extend to them will return to you.
Now you are beginning to create a reciprocal circle of love, persist in the disposition of love and, everyday, be mindful of the positive benefits to your well-being, your health and your happiness.

The Second Principle is Forgive

Not forgiving hurts you the most. It causes you far more pain than it causes anyone else. You are suffering. Consider it; you harbor resentment, bitterness, blame and unforgiveness in your heart the whole time, while the one you blame hardly thinks of you at all and gets off scot-free! While you suffer 24/7.
Now here’s the serious part: why do you do it? As you work down through the layers you find the one absolutely clear and resonant reason shamefully, guiltily reveals itself by crawling out of your unconsciousness like an oily smoo; it is that resentment is the raw material of the self – to maintain the separate, divisive, unforgiving model of the individual entity you are creating and identifying with, you must feel angry about something or someone…all the time.
The simplest, most effective method to start forgiveness as a daily practice is to hold the person you want to forgive in your heart. Let them be there as often as you can and don’t waver. The more reasons that are presented by your judgment, criticism and blame for throwing them out of your heart, the more firmly you keep them there. Let them simply melt in your heart, because they’re not really what this is all about anyway. What this is really about is your need to suffer (remember?) and preserve your individual sense of self. And you have finished with this foolishness now…and forever. So hold all the life events, relationships, wrong-doings, resentful acts and unfairness you can think of in your heart and over time you will not only release the unforgiven, you will find that you are free.
Now you are beginning to create a reciprocal circle of forgiveness, persist in holding people, events and relationships in your heart and melting them with profound acceptance and, everyday, be mindful of the positive benefits to your well-being, your health and your happiness.

The Third Principle is Accept

Acceptance is one of the most powerful principles for inner well-being. Acceptance in the psycho-spiritual sense is often misunderstood. It does not imply in any way condoning, approving, even tacitly, or supporting wrong-doing, immorality or downright evil deeds. That is about libertarianism and the granting of license, a sort of anything goes mentality. No, acceptance in the sense in which it is meant in the third principle for happiness is the attitude that somehow everything fundamentally is unfolding as it should, in a way which we might be unable to understand. Also implied is that our attitude and meeting of events in openness, receptivity and an underlying wisdom which receives the mystery of life, our ability to be with the unknown, with uncertainty to not have to prescribe and anticipate life events constantly. We know in this wisdom that life is somehow fundamentally good. And it is; even the worst events turn out to reveal some beauty of soul and spirit in both individual and collective humanity. We only have to look at the very worst examples of human suffering to see that the light of truth shines, if anything, ever more brightly in troubled times of despair and darkness. The eclipse of love is only a period before the light bursts through and shines again.
Let us now turn to the all-essential practice. Start with your breath and relax. Then slowly and gradually become aware of everything in, out and about you—emotionally, physically, mentally, energetically, spiritually, inwardly and outwardly…sounds, tastes, smells, touch, what you see with eyes open or shut…be aware of it all and accept it…and accepting it, means not wishing it to be other than it is at present, right now…not regarding it with a sense of lack, or progression, or future orientation, or criticism, evaluation or judgment. Allowing everything inside and outside and around you and in your expanded field of concern and relationship to be alright just as it is.
Now you are beginning to create a reciprocal circle of acceptance, persist in holding people, events and relationships in your heart and melting them with profound acceptance and, everyday, be mindful of the positive benefits to your well-being, your health and your happiness.
The practice of happiness is profound and crucial; its worth immeasurable. So devote thirty minutes at the beginning and the end of your days to these three practices (ten minutes each). After a month you may decrease the time you spend practicing the three principles of happiness, if you wish. But you might find you enjoy them too much to stop. In any case the effects after a month will be significant and the practice will continue in your heart and mind even if you stop…with surprising results over time.
