Happiness is Your Birthright

Your thoughts create a cause and an effect. When you sow a thought, you reap a like result.

You are a happy soul living in a body.

As a soul you are unconditional Love and Light as you are a part of the Mind of the Universe. This Mind is unconditional Love and Light and you are a part of That too.

How can you not be happiness personified if you are unconditional Love and Light as your essence?

But you don’t feel that happiness all the time, and maybe not some of the time, or maybe not at all.

The only reason that can be is because you feel separated from the Mind of the Universe. And the only way that can happen is because your ego has taken you down the garden path and led you astray.

Ego does that by offering you hope or fear and keeping your thoughts in the past or in the future. The only place ego cannot control you is in the present moment of Now. The Now is where the Mind of the Universe resides and ego cannot survive in that unconditional Love and Light.

So the solution to you finding the happiness that you are inherently, as your birthright, is to be who you truly are — unconditional Love and Light.
And how do you do that?

It’s quite simple.

If you think, say and act with the maxim “what would happiness do now?” and simply do that.

A lot of spiritual teachings will say “accept what is” but I would say to you “accept that you are how you would like to be.” Project the thoughts, words and action that denote happiness. Sometimes you have to “fake it till you make it!”

If you want to be sad, there is nothing in the world that can stop you falling into a pit of self pity and remorse. You may know that feeling and you may even be there right now.

Conversely, there is nothing in the world that can stop you being happy if that is what you have made up your mind to be.

It’s not done with smoke and mirrors. It’s done with the most powerful weapon you have — the ability to choose your thoughts.

Now if your thoughts, words and actions are aligned, and in harmony, then whatever you choose to think- happiness or sadness — must evolve as your reality. Because your thoughts create your reality.

And how do they do that?

Well, there are two Universal Spiritual Laws applicable here. The Law of Cause and Effect, also known as Karma, and the The Law of Attraction, where like attracts like.

Your thoughts create a cause and an effect. When you sow a thought, you reap a like result.

Those consequences become your reality in which you live. Now when you think of something you send a vibrational message to bring that into your reality — like attracts like.

Think, say and act all aligned with happiness and happiness becomes your middle name. Unfortunately, the same occurs with sadness too.

So its your choice — over to you.

Are your thoughts, words and actions aligned now with happiness or sadness? I hope it’s happiness!

We always avoid some Laws in our life time. Just one , Cause and Effect Law we can not avoid…….
When we do the good things, the good will come and the happiness as well…

Yes, for some reason, my thougths are aligned! I feel that this the only reasonable choice I have a chance at happiness and I still have time to not face anymore sadness! I am a look forward person, not a look back person. Sometimes, it is scary…..sometimes, not. I choose to go forward, and that I will do!! You two are so helpful to me. Thank you, so very much!!


Here goes the power of “I Am” ….. The words you attach to this phrase has a powerful effect on you ..if you use positive words like ” “I am beautiful, loveable, smart , positive , valuable, l, happy, dnergetic, friendly, successful, at peace, creative” etc. , you will eventually start to feel and act as such. But if you use negative words like ” ugly, dumb, unimportant , unkind” , etc., you will feel and act terrible. You have to dtop the negative self -talk and refuse to be affected by the negative labels other people give you. Just focus on maintaining a positive self image of yourself .
Thank you Neville, Bryant and Jenni 💕

This web site makes my day with positive thoughts


There’s more to it than that, much more. I’m not sure I can define what it is, like intelligence. I’m not really into what successful people say about happiness. Quite often they think they got there themselves, but they didn’t. It’s an illusion. You can’t be successful unless you win the approval of others. It’s too complex. I’m not happy because of my situation. Don’t tell me I am the only one who can do something about it! It wouldn’t matter what I did, I wouldn’t be happy if the right people weren’t alongside me or close by, or I had a network of people to support me. Regards anger causing me to lose seconds of my life, I don’t get angry and I lose more seconds being fed up than I do with anger. Who actually has the time to measure how many seconds they are losing off their lives?! I have my own thoughts on those matters. May happy people always be happy, but in reality, are you just lucky, kidding yourselves or delusional? If you are happy, good luck to you, but it would be silly to think that everyone can be. As I said before, we can’t all be rich, or happy, or healthy or wise. It would make me happy to move to be near my Son and my Granddaughters, but I would be imposing on someone else will. If he said I could, I would be off. If he doesn’t, I remain unhappy. If I was rich, I would be happier, because I could either buy a house I want or put high fencing around my property to keep my lousy neighbours out of my way. If happiness comes fromm within, how does it get “within”? Everyone has their own story, and their own version of what happiness really is. I’ll believe the cliches when I observe them for myself. It’s not in everyone’s personality type either, to be happy. It’s all got to be just right, some people are lucky enough to work hard, reap the benefits, belong to a living family, have groups of friends, a nice car, holidays, cars, holidays, health, wealth and “ happiness”! Just not me, yet


This is a great article. Happiness..yes I can do that, but sometimes there are people who destroys it and sometimes it can’t be avoided even if you want to… But, I love the thought of being happy forever.


Great article! I try to reflect the Happiness that is in my soul!
