Lesson 103 – God, love and happiness

‘God, being love, is also happiness.’

Happiness is and attribute of love. It cannot be apart from it. Nor can it be experienced where love is not. Love has no limits, being everywhere. And therefore joy is everywhere as well. Yet can the mind deny that this is so, believing there are gaps in love where sin can enter, bringing pain instead of joy. This strange belief would limit happiness by redefining love as limited, and introducing opposition in what has no limit and no opposite. Fear then is associated with love.

Begin your practice periods today with:

God, being love, is also happiness.
To fear Him is to be afraid of joy.

Allow this one correction to be placed in your mind each waking hour today. Then welcome all the happiness it brings as truth replaces fear, and joy becomes what you expect to take the place of pain. God, being love, it will be given you. Bolster these expectations frequently throughout the day, and quiet all your fears with these assurances, kind and wholly true:

God, being love, is also happiness.
And it is happiness I seek today.
I cannot fail because I seek the truth.

Have you ever gone somewhere thinking you were going for a specific reason and ended up coming away with something completely but welcomingly different? I thought I was going toManchestertoday for feedback on Betrayed, and to visit family. What I came away with, in addition to those things, was the means for developing an integrated marketing strategy for the novels, CDs, and poetry books. Within the next couple of weeks I’ll be all over the web!!

I’m really looking forward to the conference tomorrow. What other surprises lie in store for me there. Life is just so very exciting and brimming with joy and happiness. Why? Because I’m choosing to remember that my purpose here is happiness, and these constant reminders have got me nigh on lift off.
