Practicing happiness 08

Here’s a neat trick: if you pick a subject you don’t really care about and focus on it, you can quickly and easily find your alignment with Source and soon feel really really good.

If you’re like me your response might be “that’s great, but why would I spend time thinking about something that doesn’t matter to me?”

And therein is precisely why we get stuck feeling bad! We diligently focus only on difficult, challenging, important things. We can’t for the life of us daydream about positive things that don’t directly relate to us.

So why do it? Not for the subject, obviously, but for the feeling! Because when you feel good on one subject, it overflows into other ones including the ones you’re so hung up about.

It’s counterintuitive, but if you daydream about something that you don’t really have a vested interest in, you release all kinds of resistance and “realism” and in that moment you allow yourself to feel good.

When you feel good about anything it helps you feel good about everything. Give it a try. Imagine something you don’t strongly care about, like being really good in a discipline you don’t practice – music, art, architecture, cuisine, fashion. Imagine success and satisfaction and pride in that field and see how it feels unopposed by practiced resistance!
