No matter how successful you are in your career, or in achieving fame or fortune, it will not bring you lasting happiness unless it is part of your soul’s purpose. Finding and living your soul’s purpose is the real key to experiencing lasting happiness on this earth.
It is said that a saint is a sinner who never gave up. Likewise, a winner is a loser who never gave up. The secret to not giving up is to have a close inner relationship to God, who will intuitively guide you as to what to pursue, and provide you with the strength, courage, energy, and fortitude to succeed.
Need advice on how to get your needs met? It’s just a matter of communication between God’s Presence within you and your outer surface awareness. In other words—as Jesus advised—seek first the kingdom of heaven (the heavenly consciousness of God within you), and all things will be added unto you.
As you interact with others, always remember that beneath the gruffest exterior the soul exists, as fragile as a flower. So at all times, and with loving grace, you should handle others with care. When you do, God’s light and attributes glow brighter in you, and your life is blessed in return.
A good question to ask yourself is “What can be done to make my life better?” A better question to ask is “What does God’s Presence within me want me to do to make my life better?” If you leave God out of the question you are left only with your ego and its limited awareness to figure things out, and important opportunities will be missed.
When people think about achieving greatness, it is usually in the worldly sense of achieving fame, power, or wealth. That is not real greatness, but a temporary state. Real greatness is that which is lasting and demonstrates the eternal attributes of God—primarily the attribute of love.
There is no better thought for living your daily life than to “go with the flow.” Going with the flow is about disengaging from your personal ego sense of identity and establishing and maintaining contact with God’s Presence within you. That way you move in harmony with the flow of eternal life.
