Nothing 'Out There'
Jun 03, 2019
Nothing ‘out there’ can make you happy.
This does not seem to be true but it is.
How does it work?
You can only feel your thinking about ‘out there’.
‘Out there’ has no power to make you feel anything.
It has no ‘beams of magical mood energy’ which it can transmit to you.
When you give this some thought it seems obvious and true.
However when you are caught up in your thinking it really does seem like the world ‘out there’ (people, the past, places, circumstances etc) is making you feel angry/happy/sad/frightened etc.
Therefore nothing ‘out there’ is responsible for your happiness.
You are responsible for your happiness.
Because happiness lies within.
Guard your thoughts
Nurture the sweet joyous appreciative thoughts that flash through your mind.
Pay as little heed as is possible to the ‘negative’ thoughts.
