While in meditation today, I was having a conversation with my Higher Self wondering if I was doing that which would make God happy? I was looking back over my life and looking at where I have erred, where I have dropped the ball. I was looking at my failures. I don’t dwell in the past, mind you, rather I look to see how I can change my ways in order to better live my Divine Path (the path of God in which my Higher Self has the answers telling me which way to go to do the best). Doing the best often means Believing in the Best and Allowing God to do the Rest,
I pray daily, I go to church frequently, I do not have any other God before God, and I believe we are all sisters and brothers in each others care… That I know about me and I believe it makes God Happy.
But… this morning, as I was shifting my business plan to include more Free Workshops, I heard myself saying to my Higher Self “Please guide me so I make God Happy”.
I am looking at taking a new path in regards to what topics I will be teaching during the bi-weekly Free Workshops, and I am looking at what is propelling me to take this new path. Some of the reasons I am taking this path is because I have failed in the past.
And failure is good.
Failure means that you can learn from your mistakes, grow stronger in your fortitude, develop wisdom from experience… and above all else, keep the faith that God has your back.
When we fail, we have to get up and dust ourselves off, as corny as that may sound.
And I am fond of telling people if you have been successful before, and I paraphrase Dale Carnegie, you know how to do it again.
I have been on the top of my game, in the flow, and successful in many ways frequently…
To me success is happiness – peace inside creating peace around me.
Happiness is also the world around me, I have many things in my life that are simply amazing gifts from God. I have a man who loves me and tolerates me wearing crystals on my head. I have a 3 bedroom home nestled on a nature preserve. I have a nice vehicle to drive, I have clothes, food, and shelter… I have family that loves me and above all else, I have my connection to my higher self thus my innate connection to God (that we all have – it isn’t like I am special).
My success starts each day in gratitude with a mantra of thankfulness to God.
So as I close this article, I want to share another article with you. Out of curiosity, as I finished this post I became very curious… what does it really take to make God Happy, I wondered.
So like everyone else, I googled it.
I found the following article which I think you might enjoy reading…
What Does the Bible Say About Pleasing God?
When Jesus was asked how to make God Happy….
Jesus replied: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ “ (Matthew 22:37-39, NIV)
