The path of inner happiness
I have always been interested in reading articles about how to be happy in life, as I think sometimes we can find happiness somewhere we never looked before. Some of the happiest moments in my life came from little blessings, small pleasures, even a talk to a friend filled with laughter or a simple board game. One day I read something that says: "happiness depends on our attitudes toward the little things”. It made sense to me. I understood that even when times get tough, I could make a decision to count my blessings, and to be happy. I realised that in order to be a happy individual I needed to understand that my happiness does not revolve around things, it revolves around my spiritual and personal philosophy of life.
If I pay attention to my inner thoughts, my inner feelings, avoid negative thoughts and encourage positive thoughts, I am creating a positive intention that will show in my external behaviour. I make a DECISION to be happy every morning, that gives me energy for a positive life. When I decide to be grateful and happy, I have to let go of the past, worries and insecurities. I need to give up control and learn to embrace the new and welcome change in my life.
As a tarot reader, I also use the nine of cups to inspire me when it comes to happiness. When the nine of cups comes into my readings, it brings me a sense of joy and happiness by being emotionally fulfilled, counting the blessings, and understanding that being emotionally balanced is a process that starts from within. When I look at the nine of cups, I see the satisfaction found in living in the moment. It inspires me to look for things to be happy about and appreciate the perfection around me.
We should think about happiness as a daily practice, and allow ourselves to be happy, we have to live in a way that we grow into the light and not into the darkness. Let’s choose to live in essence.
