How do you find happiness? How does that question feel, good or bad? It’s an unhappy, needing, wanting, dissatisfied thought-feeling itself, right? But only when you put your attention on it. What is assumed within that question? That happiness has been somehow “lost”. Misplaced. Out of reach, here and now. The only thing keeping you from happiness is this false thought knowledge that happiness has been lost. Rubbish. So the first thing to do it to throw out the trash.Read more →
It’s a Question of Life and Death
The real reason why I urge people to seek joy…
Recently someone unsubscribed from my newsletter, politely and usefully leaving the comment that they are “beyond” what I offer. It made me wonder, did they know what is truly available and offered?
He exclaims “Oh my god” over and over, crying and laughing in ecstasy, asking “what does it mean?!” Many of you have probably seen a double rainbow, and may wonder, what’s the big deal?

When people do think or say the words “Happiness is within,” most are just giving it “lip service.” For those people, it is just a nice theoretical thought they drop when it suits them – usually while counseling others. They say it just because it sounds good, and they generally only say it when things are going well. Few say and uphold it when things go awry.Read more →
People don’t support my happiness!
During a TeleClass last night, I described how my experience of life has changed since discovering the joy within; how things, people, or events–even the weather, don’t bother me, and someone who was relating emailed this question:

Three times people who turned and looked at me were drawn, with a new smile as broad as mine, to ask if I needed help. They returned to their business in the mundane state they were in before.

Today is the seven-year anniversary of my Father’s rebirth into spirit. Notice how much less a “charge” there is, how much less suffering there is, how much more truth and presence there is in the statement of the anniversary. Today is not the day that Dad died.Read more →
