As a longtime student of A Course in Miracles, my consciousness bubbles with little platitudes from years worth of lessons. One of my favorite lessons is, “Now is the only time there is.” Today I am reminded that if I am ever going to be happy, the time is now… the place is here. Gee, that was a simple choice. I will simply choose to be happy here and now…. OK, I admit that it’s easier said than done!
Simple decisions are not always easy to manifest. There is an old saying in Chinese medicine: “Qi follows thought.” In western terms, the saying is: ”Thoughts become things.” To manifest happiness, it begins with your decision to be happy right now. And then keep being happy in moment after moment. If you lose your happy thoughts… well, there’s a new now being born every second.
