Be happyBe happy
You will grow into God's greatest blessing, His highest pride.
Yesterday's world wants you to enjoy its surrendered breath.
Today's world wants you to enjoy its surrendering breath.
Tomorrow's world wants you to enjoy its fulfilling breath.
Be happy in the morning with what you have.
Be happy in the evening with what you are.
Don't complain. Who complains? The blind beggar in you.
When you complain, you dance in the mire of ignorance-condition.
When you don't complain, all conditions of the world are at your feet, and God gives you a new name: aspiration.
Aspiration is the supreme wealth in the world of light and delight.
Do you want never to be poor? Then be happy. Do you want ever to be great? Then be happy.
You will get what you like most. You will be what you like best.
When you are happy, you and God command each other.
God commands you lovingly. You command God hastily.
When you are unhappy, the hostile forces command you ruthlessly, doubt commands you openly, bondage commands you triumphantly and fear commands you unconditionally.
God sees in you His aspiring Creation, His transforming Realisation, His illumining Revelation and His fulfilling Manifestation.
God sees in you another God. God sees you as another God. God sees you and He as One.
