If it Feels Good, Do It !

I know everyone has heard the saying, “If it feels good, do it”, but are you taking it to heart? Well, you should. Life is relatively short, and we all deserve to be as joyful as possible. And how do you accomplish this, you ask? Well, it’s not as hard as you might think. The trick is to think good thoughts. I know that sounds too easy, but there you have it. The hard part is training your brain to focus on the good things in life, and ignoring the things that don’t please you. Like things that make you feel sad or angry or scared. All these negative feelings are just a waste of time. Negative emotions of any kind just drain you of your joy. Remember, where focus goes, energy flows. So, you need to practice being joyful in order to line up with your inner being, which is really the bigger part of you. Again, remember that you are a spiritual being having a human experience. In other words, you are a forever being. You will always exist in this Universe, whether you are in this body or some other one. You are energy, and energy cannot be created or destroyed. It just changes form. So, what do you want to change into in this life? Are you wanting a happy life or a miserable life? It really is up to you. Changing your perspective about things could help you live a happier life. For example, if you have had something go wrong, try finding the silver lining, and there is always a silver lining.

Here’s something that happened to me that seemed bad at the time, but it turned out pretty good. I was driving on the freeway in stop and go traffic. The guy behind me was really riding my butt. And a thought flashed through my mind very quickly, that if that guy hits me, I’ll hit the car in front of me and total my car. Well, about a minute later I did crash, and yes I totaled my car. No one was hurt, but we were all a little shook up. But during the two hour wait for the tow truck, I had time to think about how I had brought this to me. Partly because of that weird thought about crashing and partly because I had been wanting a new car. I had a particular one in mind that I had been looking up on line, and noticing them on the road. And now I could get that new car. When it looks like something has gone wrong, and it starts messing with your head, you need to take a step back, and stop struggling with why it happened, and see how the Universe has led you to exactly what you want. This is what is known as working in concert with your inner being.

Now, I’m going to say something that may seem a little screwy, but it’s true. You can, and should choose the way you want to feel. Oh, there will be times when something will get your goat. You may even feel vengeful, and that’s okay, feelings are meant to be felt. But, it’s best not to act on these feelings. Just feel them and let them run their course, then let them go. Like I said, there is always a silver lining, you just need to look for it. Remember, you are the boss of you. No one can insert anything into your experience, not without your permission. Once you get the hang of caring about how you feel, you will have less and less negative emotions about anything that comes your way. You will be truly free.

Listen, I’m not just giving lip service here. I really mean it when I say that it is our duty to have as much fun as possible in this lifetime. It is why we came to this planet. Your job is only to look for things that please you, and to enjoy each and every moment. Life on planet earth is fleeting, and we deserve to love ourselves and love one another unconditionally. Self-love is the beginning of a wonderful life. And it doesn’t matter where you have been or what you have done in your past, now is all that counts. Now is the best of times, and you are a truly worthy being.

So go out there and be the best you you can be. And the happiest you you can be. Your whole life will change for the better, I promise. Remember, there is always great love for you here.
