. . . soulful musings and mindful reflections on everyday living
April 22, 2015
Dear Clare & Posey: Suddenly, I am happy! This is such a calm and fulfilling state to live in instead of my former unhappiness. My friends are looking at me as if I am an alien. What has happened to me – will this last?
Clare: When one enters into a state of happiness and awareness, the result is falling in love with yourself. From your souls’ point of view, this is a necessary leap towards living a life of inner fulfillment. Congratulations on:
Being less reactive and more proactive by loving yourself as you discover more of what you desire in life
Letting go of unnecessary parts of your former life leading to inner peace
Changingyour negative thoughts to positive one’s creating new brain and mind patterns
Entering a neutral state when high drama surrounds you
Finding new ways to support your inner happiness with calming music, videos, books, time in nature and consistent meditative quiet time
Looking and finding the good in life
Being kind to yourself and others
You have entered a deep spiritual practice and we are so happy for you. This state of happiness will last as long as you are able to recognize in the moment how you choose to act or react to any situation. It is entirely up to you.
Posey: Wow – how did this happen? How did you find happiness without me, your protective ego – or am I in on the deal? All this fast changing has been too much. I cannot keep up with your constant smiling face and inner happiness. All that joy – it is such a change from your former self! Where is your desire to be right? Where is your need to get ahead in life? Don’t all those badges and certificates hold value for you any longer? You worked so hard through school to prove how superior your mind is. You struggled in your job to reach the highest level. You dated all those cute guys without a care to the next moment. Where is your angst, your intense drive, your hard won battles? How did these important elements of your personality just poof?
If you are going to continue to celebrate the happy factor, I guess I might have to tone down some of my assertive traits you once loved so much. Perhaps we can team up and do this whole ego personality thing a new way? You be the happy one and I will still show up to protect and shield you from the angry world. Deal? Don’t be surprised if you move back towards old reactive patterns once in a while. I will have your back and Clare will have your inners.
