Give a Girl Happiness Feed Her for a Day, Teach a Girl Happiness Feed Her for Life

Are you Happy?

Recently, there have been a lot of books, articles and studies around this illusive topic.  If you never stop to ask yourself this question, perhaps it is time.  Happiness matters.  Research shows that happiness is linked to health and longevity.

The same idea of give a man a fish you feed him for a day, teach a man to fish you feed him for life applies to Happiness. The proverb became popular in the 1960s, but is first attributed to Lao Tzu, founder of Taoism in the 4th century BC.  The idea of the fish is about self-sufficiency.  It applies not only to the lower frequencies of things like survival, but also to higher frequencies like love, joy and peace.

A hungry child looks to his mother to feed him.  As long as she feeds him, he will feel temporarily satisfied, at least until he becomes hungry again.  He is dependent on his mother for food an thereby for survival.  As long as she continues to give to him, he can survive another day.  Only, when she teaches him how to fish can he reach his potential as a self-sustaining human.

In the spirit of yesterday's blog about finding true love inside yourself, it occurred to me that the same is true of true happiness.  It is easy to feel happy when someone pays you a kind word, gives you a compliment, gift or takes you on a nice date.  The trouble is when you attach happiness to people, places or things outside of you, you run the high risk of crashing into depression when the situation changes.

Until you learn to feed yourself, you will spend a lot of time being hungry.  Until you learn the true nature of Happiness, you will spend a lot of time unhappy.  Happiness comes from the inside.  No one can make you happy and you cannot make anyone else happy.  You cannot buy happiness and you cannot sell happiness.  Happiness is an elevation of consciousness.  It is a result of being aligned in mind, body and spirit.  Pleasure can be found in the material world, but it is fleeting, like eating for the day.

As long as you are seeking happiness outside of yourself, you will always be surviving.  Raise your vibrations and start thriving!  Happiness is your birthright!  Life is Short.  Make yours Magical!
