The Art of Being Happy - Part III - Divine Guidance:


I believe that one can learn the art of being happy.  There are several things people can do to invite joy and peace into their lives and keep them there for good.  I will explore the many facets of the art of being happy over the next several weeks, a step by step guide for getting there, a life manual for a life fulfilled. 


Just as the alphabet starts with the letter "A", the art of happiness also has a beginning, a first key concept:


Cultivating a belief in something higher than yourself is a good start. 


Religion is a very personal thing.  I don't know how to tell you to find your "Something Higher".  My journey was one of research and perseverance.  I observed.  I read.  I asked a lot of question, I listened... and then IT found me.  One day it just happened and I've never been the same since.  


Believing in something higher than myself has been a huge relief.  Learning to pray for specifics took some getting used to, but now I practice it every day.  I believe in the power of prayer as much as I believe in gravity and black and white, and anything else that one is sure of.  I have seen miracles generated by prayer. 


Praying and not believing is like eating air.  It means nothing; it does nothing.  For prayer to work, one must believe.   For the agnostics and atheists, there is ample proof in the power of visualization.  The mind is an amazing instrument...


Where are you in your journey?

If one doubts the power of a higher authority, they only need to come visit Hawaii and see Goddess Pele actively at work creating the Big Island.  Once seen, there is no denying her.

That internal peace and joy is something that eludes so many... 

In December I sat down to write a letter to a friend who was depressed.  Several hours later I had many pages of valuable information.  The ideas came pouring out as if my thoughts were guided by a higher power; I was in "the flow". 

I will post these many pages as blogs connected to each other.  You can read one, or all of them.  The order does not really matter; it will all make sense, whichever way you unravel it.

Coming from one who had to learn how to achieve that internal sunshine of the soul, I feel that I am uniquely qualified to impart advice in this area.  The art of being happy can be learnt.  Furthermore, it can be the best legacy to pass down to your children...

Hi Mirela, I too believe that prayer is a powerful thing and I'm so thankful that I can have a personal relationship with God through prayer. Recently I started keeping a prayer journal and it's neat to be able to look back at the things I've prayed about and seen how God is working in my life.

Have a great day,

Anne Rains
