Happiness doesn’t dwell in just one place but shines out to all people

Happiness doesn’t dwell in just one place but shines out to all people. Glory implies prosperity and happiness for everyone, like a light shining out on a new morning where all nature is in harmony and rejoicing together. When the birds on the trees and the animals have been shivering all night, how do they feel when they finally see the dawn breaking? Even though there was heavy snow, as soon as they see the morning light their joy is abundant. All of nature awakes from the darkness and rejoices over that shining light, celebrating the greatness of the morning.

Are People Inherently Bad?

Have you ever thought our world is doomed and people are less likely to manifest eternal happiness and cause joy to each other? You might be right about it…

However, there is an “if” in this case.

First of all, “if” we really look around and see the recent state of our world today we can safely say, there are barely any glimpses of true shine of hope and wisdom.

Can any leaders in any field be trusted to take a lead for the greater good not for own, selfish interests?

Of course, plenty of them are giving donations which is great, some support people in need, children in crisis and so on.

A great yet small sum in exchange for what they did to them, to all of us. Anyhow, we are all into this, together, collectively.

Yes, personally you most probably never harmed anyone, never caused any regional conflict to gain more for your business, possibly never lied bluntly instead of being honest and most probably you never took advantage on the vulnerable ones.

However, we all let it happen. We all let the evil to spread among us, causing misery and agony.

With every day not changing and evolving for the greater, common good, we keep repeating the same, vicious cycle what has been happening since we remember for human history.

And maybe there is where everything lies behind.

We forgot the beginning.

We became purposeless.

We became rootless.

This rootlessness made us to be ruthless. And instead of dreaming for a great future and building it, we keep doing everything against ourselves and each other.

“IF” we look around, if we really look at that, especially the Nature, we can see patterns. Patterns which are unchanging, eternal in every level in the Universe. Even in our own cells. Even in the planetary systems. And they are to show how our own lives are supposed to be.

Living for the sake of others.

It all starts with an internal desire, continues with the right mindset. It goes on with the right way of speaking. And then actions come. First: mind and body unity, centred on a true heart.

A person who is growing this way, can relate in a more mature level with another one. Together, they are able to unite in a much higher and heartfelt relationships. A true one.

It can happen between a parent and a child, siblings and spouses.

As for siblings, this can be applied to anyone, every one of us can relate to each other as true brothers and sisters.

We can even use this kind of approach with the world around us, keeping and growing a sustainable garden of life.

“If” we can see the patterns, maybe it takes time, then, we will be able to start to think of applying them, step by step to our lives.

Will it be successful at first? Not necessarily.

Will we succeed ultimately? Absolutely.

What we need here is, to be able to see, we are not meant to suffer, we never were. We need to be able to see, we were never meant to hurt each other or abandon in need.

Everyone deserves to be happy and live a joyous life.

We need to find our original mindset for that. Since the desire is in our heart, we are already at the second step.

The impulse of the original mind, which everyone possesses, is to abhor evil and exalt goodness.

So, what are we waiting for?

We were born to be good with such a great creativity for co-creation.

Don’t worry, my child

As I Can See

Don’t worry, my child
don’t you worry
I’m standing right next to you
I’m with you

You may think the world is over
you might feel this way
but even if it is so
I’ll be with you

The broken sadness in you
will pass away
complete happiness will rise
with the morrow

Loneliness and Isolation
the two loyal friends
Abundant Grace
will better suit to you

Can you accept, my child
the love I’m giving you
Can I give you more
to heal you by tomorrow

I’m worried my child,
I’m worried for you
I’d like to find a way
a better way to and for you

But you shan’t worry
if you open up
just a little bit more
let me embrace you

You may think I’m too old
and you are independent
to be so close friends
partners for life

I’m here any case
trying to catch…

What if you are not “fancy” enough?

Has it ever happened to you that you started to develop an unusual feeling of being neglected by your friends all of a sudden?

When you check your calls and it is plain obvious, although you’ve made the calls, and you haven’t really received any or too many, especially from those who matter to you and up until that you thought you matter to them, too?

Do you remember for the excuses when you tried to explain to yourself why and how probably, possibly, surely, definitely they just hadn’t had the time, again but you are still important to them?

Well, I’m sure, you also remember the moment of truth, admitting these are only excuses to avoid and accept the realization, this relationship, friendship, connection is not as meaningful and valuable for them as for you. That’s a painful one, always. And somehow, it doesn’t want to go away…

Of course, if you walk the path to help and guide people for the greater good, towards God, our Heavenly Parent, than you can have an extended viewpoint on this and it can provide some comfort -. with the understanding, God has been lonely, too, however, you are building Heaven if you keep the good and right attitude…

After so many years, there is one truth which reoccurs all the time for me: we do matter, ceaselessly to our Heavenly Father, our Parent, God. For Him it is not an extended relationship, a correspondence course, it is His bone marrow and we are in it whenever we walk the path of light, truth, care and active love. Interestingly enough, for Him it is less important how successful or great we are. For Him our heart, our mindset, our soul matter, this way He can heal our wounds and body and can share the abundant joy.

Have you ever thought how great you are?

You are unique. Nobody has ever existed anything like you before and will never be. Just you can be you and that makes you special.

Of course, to live up, to grow and mature to reach our full potential is a path with ups and downs. Yet, we are never alone.

You are never alone.

 

God has been calling you, all the time…

SMM Quotes – 224

Quote

“If any individual is conceived and born in hope and raised in hope and finally achieves that hope, then truly that person is most accomplished and happy. No one can expect any better life than that one. When parents who are on their deathbed bring their children to the bedside and give them their will, this is not really a sad moment; this is the very significant moment of transferring that hope to a new generation.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

Foolish Desire

Foolish desire
It is to be happy
Even sillier
If it is for every
People on Earth
In harmony
With mutual love
Respect and prosperity

Foolish desire
It is to be happy
Living with God
In a true family
Where everybody
Is a sibling
So equally loved
And tears are shared
In grief and in love

Foolish desire
It is to be happy
Living for others
Unselfishly
When there aren’t any
Excuses and explanations
Reasoning for abominations
Just the pure desire
Intention and Will
To make this life we have
Forever Heavenly

Have You Noticed That You Are Amazing?

Here is the thing: everybody wants to be happy, live a joyful life, create and work for the greater good and be appreciated accordingly.
Nobody likes being prejudged based on anything, nobody likes being shut out, nobody likes being alone, nobody likes being misused.
Yet, we all have vast experiences about these and there are more to them.
How can we change it?

Here is the thing: we are all meant to excel in whatever we plan for others and the world around us. Living in a world full of communication devices we seem to be loosing in our efficiency regarding the ability of real meaning and understanding each other. It is like the Tower of Babylon – so many ways to miss the point.
However, and this is a great however: you can excel in any art, the inevitable tool to comprehend other nations, science, faith, people and I can assure you, yourself during the way.

You are a Winner,
Not a Quitter,
You are Awesome,
No matter what you say,
You are Amazing,
Nobody is, was or will be like you
You are Unique,
Not only Special,
But simply: Fantastic!

Be persevering and all your efforts will bring fruition for you and your beloved ones and the whole world will be a greater place.

You’ve recreated me and made me whole

I thought, I’d lost you
But You’d found me
The swamp of my life
Emerged to a blooming meadow
Where You are the Creator
And I’m Your co-creator
Where we experience
Love and fun together
Where the highs and lows
Are equally shared

 
It was only a night
What I’d asked for
It was only a day
What I’d hoped for
Yet You gave me
A whole new life
With meaning and purpose
Love and care
Abundant joy
Truth and peacefulness
You’ve recreated me
And made me whole

 
You’ve recreated me
And made me whole

 

Thank you!

This Is the Final Period in History Without a Central Being

Where is the place of the master, where the center of an individual can get connected to the center of the family, the center of the family can get connected to the center of the nation, and the center of the nation can get connected to the center of the world, and so on to the center of Heaven and Earth? This is the problem. Is there really a master inside of you? Suppose that your mind is the master. Can you trust your mind? There is a saying that human nature is fickle, isn’t there? Yes, there is a saying that while human nature is changeable, the mountains are the same for all ages. How miserable is it that we live relying on our mind that keeps changing many times a day according to the changes of the environment?

Even if this extension moves back and forth, if the center is kept in balance, harmony can be achieved. But if this part falls away and the rest tries to work without the support, it is an extremely dangerous affair. Looking at today’s individuals, we can picture the toothed wheel of a watch without the support, rolling about here and there as it pleases. Moving back and forth, rolling over and over – if it were rolling over and over in this fashion on the streets of this global village, think of how everything would collide and thus break. That is exactly what is happening.

That being the case, what is the problem now? A righteous center and righteous master must set up. This has to become the support to the center of the whole. This should be able to point the direction and operate for the common ideal and guide it all to progress toward a certain goal. But where is such a central diameter, central direction, central hometown, and central plumb of value? This is the most significant matter for concern.

Jesus said, “The Kingdom of Heaven is in your mind.” What kind of mind did he mean? Which mind was set up as the standard? Did he mean the mind of a disciple who had the mind to either sell off or forsake Jesus at any time? No, he did not mean that kind of mind. He meant the conscientious mind that can go directly toward the one direction forever, without fail — the mind that has been transformed before the eternally immutable standard of the original nature. The Kingdom of Heaven exists in the middle of the ground of such a mind. Whose mind is this? The one that is centered on God’s mind is such a mind.

Where is the Kingdom of Heaven? If you say it is in the mind of God and in the mind of the person who has a mind that resembles the mind of God, then that sounds all right. But if you say that the Kingdom of Heaven is in continent mind, that does not sound right. We talk about things or even criticize things based on a certain central point. Only after we set up a certain standard called a goal can we distinguish progress and regression, front and rear, right and left, based on that standard.

What on Earth is the central being of this world today? That is the question. Is there a master of your mind in your own selves? This master of your mind should not say, “Let’s go this way while I’m young.” You have to go straight from the moment of birth until the time of death, throughout your lifetime, without distinction of youth or age. If there is a path I must go, I should be able to say, “This is a path not only I must go, but all people must go.” We must reach the standard where we can discover our own selves, the selves who can determine the central direction for all people of the past, present and future. Only when people reach the standard where they can determine such a central direction and their own selves can they become their own master for the first time. It makes sense when you say, “I advance with this conscience, with which I can be the master of the standard.” If you mumble about, running around as you please without a direction and goal, then it is very dangerous. It will quickly result in more and more destruction and self-ruin rather than happiness as you approach the final day. You must know this fact.

When you think of such an aspect on the individual level, you naturally come to the conclusion that such a miserable final day will come to humanity, for it will be reflected on the national and worldwide levels. The final period is dangerous to this world of humanity, which has not yet found the image of and does not have the central being.

When will such a time come? Right now is such a time. People with wealth worry because they have it. People without wealth worry because they don’t have it. Big countries worry because they are big. Small countries worry because they are small. All kinds of problems exist. Where there are problems, there cannot be happiness. A nation or a world that looks at resolving problems as a hobby could be a happy nation or world. But when the problems are brain-wracking, they are miserable. In other words, a healthy man who digests everything and anything eats without hesitation and is happy. For a weak person, on the other hand, who suffers from stomach trouble and is sick and cannot digest everything, eating can become a bitter thing.

trying to catch you
when you fail
and when you fly

Don’t worry, my child
the troubles are for the yesterday
you can rest now
I’ll protect you for eternity
