NOW I KNOW
We are all here to live every situation we can imagine, good or bad; right or wrong; positive or negative. Why? So we can learn from the experience as part of the adventure of life. Murray Kibblewhite
CASE STUDY – WHY WE NEED TO HAVE LASTING HAPPINESS? SUBJECT BELIEFS
To find lasting happiness you need to follow the guide lines from Soul Reflections and “respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you or makes you”.
As a Spiritual Teacher and Author, I find the emphasis on money, assets and sensory pleasure, to gain lasting happiness, is completely false!
For example, in your career you, like most people, you are employed in a business or organisation, have a written job description setting out your duties and responsibilities to which you have to obey and conform to at all times. Your work efforts are measured and compared to standards so that others effectively control you! Is this lasting happiness?
What about your relationship with your spouse or partner where you agree to a set of vows, you jointly agree on where you will live and how many children you will have? But will this last as.50% of all marriages end in divorce? Is this lasting happiness?
Finally, consider the situation of ownership of things such as vehicles, electronic gadgets or pleasure boats. Each of them requires the user to pay for registration, to complete a training programme or comply with special laws or regulations. Yes, there is the pleasure in the use of things but there are also limits and restrictions of where, for example, a vehicle can be driven faster than the legal speed limit. So, is this lasting happiness?
Lasting happiness is an internal not external experience.
So what is the learning here?
The final words on this are taken from Ramtha:-
“The Father has not given you or anyone else a directive as to what your life should be, save for one thing, and that is to for you to be joyful – whatever joy means to you. To be happy and joyful is the Father’s only desire for you”.
So do you need to own things to gain lasting happiness?.
All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what is the real lesson to be learnt!
