Deepak Chopra said, “The purpose of life is the expansion of happiness. Happiness is the goal of every other goal.”
Once a great teacher and spiritual leader was asked about all the suffering in the world, surprising the listeners, replied, “In my world everything is perfect.” Of course, the answer from this spiritual leader did not mean that the teacher had no compassion for the suffering of others. On the contrary, there was only deep compassion and love expressed for all.
Being enlightened the teacher could transcend suffering, because the teacher understood it to be, ultimately, an illusion.
For most of us, we live a different reality. We have not achieved this state of grace; it is not possible for us to view things that make us unhappy, challenges us or threaten us and still remain at our core, happy.
Abraham, as voiced through Esther, makes the point, helping us to understand that until we achieve this state of grace, we need to shift our perspective.
When we change our the way we perceive things, we change our vibrational state and begin to align with feelings of happiness and joy.
“The solution to every problem lies in the vibrational relief and letting go of resistance.” Abraham
Letting go of resistance and the focus on challenges, in other words, moving away from the things that make us unhappy, while at the same time not focusing on things outside of ourselves because we’re hoping they will create happiness for us.
Happiness isn’t simply the absence of your challenges and problems: happiness is the power which will help you release your resistance and heal your problems.
When we allow happiness to be unconditional, without cause, then the world, as Friedrich Nietzsche said, “…has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.”
I love the way the Buddha said it, “There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.”
In this DVD Abraham brings it down to basics, talking about meditation, saying it’s the best process they know of for releasing resistance and tuning yourself to a higher vibration.
This is the process that allows you to focus in on what feels good.
