Are you blessed or cursed in life?
We know that the Creator only intends for our lives to be filled with goodness and Light. So, who is blessing or cursing us? The truth is leading a life full of happiness or a life full of chaos is a choice that we make.
In life, there are two paths to choose. The path of happiness is filled with blessings of good health, abundance, love, fulfillment, peace – all of the good things we want. Meanwhile, the path of chaos makes us feel cursed with problems, anger, disputes, wars and chaos of all different ways, shapes and forms.
Choosing the path of happiness is choosing the path of proactive transformation, on which we stretch and transform ourselves, channel most of our energy towards caring for people and consider the effects of our actions.
Choosing the path of chaos is choosing the path of reactive transformation, on which we are pushed, through great pain and pressure, to stop, look at ourselves and change. Many times when we are taking this path, it feels like life is not going well or things do not happen for us – just as if we are cursed.
Each and every moment of our lives, we decide which road to travel in life. Take a moment to consider this reality. Which path are you choosing right now?
This week, be more conscious than ever that the actions, thoughts, words and feelings you choose promote proactive transformation in the long run, rather than reactive transformation now. It’s either one or the other; it cannot be both.
Some of us think that have everything we want is a blessing that will bring happiness. We look at people that have a lot of money, and we judge them to be happy. Yet, happiness can only be something a person feels inside, not what his/her life looks like from the outside. Nor is happiness the result of any external circumstances; it does not depend on what I have or do not have.
The greatest curse is to be sad, while the greatest blessing is to be truly happy. We experience true happiness when we are spiritually wealthy. Spiritual wealth is a person’s a deep connection to the Light and profound understanding of the purpose of life. When we have spiritual wealth, nothing can make us sad, nothing can make us poor.
Happiness is a choice. A beautiful tool to strengthen this type of consciousness is the Hebrew-letter combination of the 72 Names of God for happiness, Vav Hei Vav (see below). Whether you have 30 minutes or 30 seconds, take time to close your eyes and mediate on this combination and the corresponding affirmation:
I want to plant a seed for the rest of the week that I am choosing to be blessed, I am choosing the path of proactive transformation, and I am choosing happiness. I am dropping my ego and moving towards actual and lasting fulfillment. I restrain my selfish longings, and I ask for what my soul needs. Looking ahead, I want elevation for my soul and real transformation. I restrict my dark impulses and tendencies towards negativity and complaining. I appreciate everything around me and reach into my soul at the deepest level to connect with real happiness and true joy.
I wish that all of us are able to manifest this reality of true happiness idea every day, in every second.
