(Excerpts from Are You Happy Now? 10 Ways to Live a Happy Life)
Good questions to ask are:
- What is true for you? Not what other people say, but what you say. No one else can say or has the right to say what’s true for you.
- What is good for you? Again not what other people say is good for you (no matter how well meaning). No one else can say or has the right to say what is good for you.
- What should your life path be? Again no one else can say or has the right to say what your life path should be.
- What do you feel? How can anyone else know? And if they say they do, they are only guessing or projecting their own feelings on you. No one else can say or has the right to say what you should feel.
The way of it
The reality is also that we all know when we are following our passion or our heart’s desire because it feels right. Everyone has experienced this feeling of ‘rightness’ at some time in his/her life. It’s called integrity. And it’s easy to recognize. It’s a sense of real comfort. A feeling that life is good and that life is moving freely in and through you. It’s that feeling of ease, when you experience no discomfort, no obstructions, no limitations, no doubts. You know it’s good because it’s the free flow of life through you, as if the whole universe is working in and through you. And in truth, this is what is happening. This is the reality of it. Because when you are in the flow, everything in life is working in and through you and with you. And that’s what makes it feel so right.
