So I had a breakthrough of sorts today. The sun came out and I could see the detail in the world and there were no more dark corners within. So yeah, happiness comes from confidence, gratitude and acceptance. (Duh!) I feel like the slow kid at the back of the class who took all lesson to understand what the teacher explained in the first five minutes.
Confidence in who you are and what you are capable of achieving.
Gratitude to the Creator, for all you have and are; everything you had and were; and all that the future may hold.
Acceptance that what you have is as good as it gets and that your future is full of potential for better.
Seriously though it’s not something you can be told. It’s not medicine you can just take and feel better that will make the taste for oblivion go way. You can read it in a book, write it a thousand times on the blackboard, recite in in Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic and Arabic. No dice.
The only language that matters is the language of the heart and only experience and inspiration can write those words and only in epiphany can you read them.
I. Am. Smiley.
