Happiness is a way of being

Lying embellishes deceit. Crying embellishes illusion. Dying embellishes continuity. Trying embellishes intent.

What is Hilarion telling us? This week’s saying seems to have several unrelated parts. We probably feel we’ve had more than plenty of lying and crying in our lives. We don’t want more of either. Dying also likely seems like something we want to avoid, at least for now. Trying sounds like just more hard work—not fun.

This message does, however, tell us how to bring the metaphysical into the physical. How do we help our dreams come true in everyday life? How can we make our lives happier? Let’s take the message in bits.

Lying may deceive others, but it certainly will lead us to deceive ourselves, too. This results in lack of clarity. If we don’t understand what is in divine reality and we’re not honest with ourselves about what we really want, we create a communication gap between ourselves and the universe (aka the sharing).

Crying or regret also will help keep us stuck in illusion. If we’re busy thinking about what might have been or placing ourselves in the role of the victim, we won’t be focused on what is possible.

Dying is just another more final-sounding word for transition or change. If we’re willing to change, we’re in cooperation with the universe’s natural tendency to flow from one state into another. Stasis is boring to the sharing.

Trying is the act of changing ourselves in keeping with our dreams. When we think, speak, and take physical action consistent with our hopes, we send a clear message to the universe about what we want and what we gratefully accept. Our effort—both mental, verbal, and physical—helps crystallize our desires into reality.

To recap, when we are honest with ourselves, when we live in the present, when we are willing to change with life, and when we keep our thoughts, words, actions, and intentions consistent with each other, we position ourselves ideally to co-create our lives.

Let’s take a few minutes to consult with our inner divinity—our sharing within—to understand how we might do this. We will begin by making our breath soft and even. We’ll also visualize our sharing within as a golden light in the center of our chest. As we inhale, the light becomes strong and bright. As we exhale, the light flows out through and around us. We’ll continue breathing and picturing the light until we feel the peace and ease of conscious connection with our sharing within.

We will ask our sharing within to show us:

  • How are we currently fooling ourselves? What aren’t we being honest about with ourselves? Perhaps we don’t enjoy our present job because deep down we believe employment is hard work, not fun.
  • What regret keeps us from enjoying the present? Perhaps we wish we had pursued a different career path.
  • How we are resisting change that would benefit us? Perhaps we’re afraid to switch jobs, or perhaps we’re unwilling to expand our current job role to take on more or different challenges.
  • Which of our current intents, thoughts, words, and actions aren’t consistent? Perhaps we talk about wanting a different job, however are worried about losing our present position, and yet have taken no steps to prepare for or look for other employment or to remodel our current position to be more to our liking.

We also will ask our sharing within to give us clarity of thought and perception, the ability to enjoy the present moment, the willingness to change without fear, and the focus needed to keep our thoughts, words, and actions consistent with our dream—in this example, a vocation that is fun and rewarding on all levels.

Finally, we’ll thank our sharing within for help and state our willingness to keep ourselves aligned with our desires. We’re willing to see life clearly, to enjoy what’s happening right now, to change as life changes around us, and to walk the talk of our dreams. Happiness is a way of being, not a goal.
