What brings happiness

So, what is morality?? And what does it take?? Is anybody really above it??

Some people act like they can cruise through life only pursuing their own pleasures.

So, why do people this?? And what is the connection between a good life and a great moral character??

It took me years of personal struggle, trial and error, many losses and tragedies; but I finally understood that no one is really above morality, specially me… Please check out my article “Critique on Morality.” that I think clarifies many things about it… Morality is the highest expression of love and understanding in the human being, because it is about empathy and doing what is healthy and right. Morality has nothing to do with our minds. Our minds may want to vote for this politician, or eat this or that food, or take revenge on somebody because we believe is just; however, these are just constructs and impulses of our minds, and also ways to please ourselves.

Morality goes with truth. The good life is not a life of money, position in society, a big family, traveling, the best education money can give; but it is moral character. Moral character gives us courage to never doubt our choices. With moral character I just follow what is healthy for myself and for others, and I don’t have to second guess myself because this moral character gives me freedom to be myself, my best self, and this makes me truly happy. Happiness comes when I do what is right. If I smoke, I will eventually get sick, maybe even suffer lung cancer. This is what will happen whether I want it or not. If I do not eat right, as I grow and my body changes I will suffer illnesses, obesity, will have many problems to enjoy my life. If I cheat on my loved ones, or embezzle money, or do illegal deals, or any other greedy action, then I will suffer the consequences one way or another, and I will not be happy with myself.

A happy life and moral character go hand in hand, but too often people try to get away with many immoral things while expecting to be truly happy. This is irrational. This is like jumping into the ocean without knowing how to swim, but at the same time expecting to enjoy yourself in the ocean. I think that people quite often live their lives unaware. Awareness of your mental states. That is crucial to live a good life, specially a life which is not bringing you anxiety. Any morality, if it’s true, is about the harmony in our minds. This harmony in our minds only exists if we do what is moral, not what we want but what is based on truth. Only truth brings happiness. So, remain aware of your choices and of what you do at all times. What are the consequences that this will bring me?? Why do I feel the need to do this?? Is anybody or anything pressuring me to do this?? Inquire, transform yourself; and don’t relay on others to know what is moral. Society does not know morality. Only the individual knows it.

The aware life

Why is the world the way it is…?? How to see past this..?? How to let go of my own negativity…??

The world can be challenging, people dying of hunger, illnesses, great natural disasters, and every immoral choice you can imagine. No one can deny this. You can see this wherever you look.

But it is in us to wake up each morning and find some miracle in our lives. Instead of thinking about the worst that could happen, I think about the positive that will happen. The positive that will happen is not about what will happen per se; but about my own mental attitude, the content of my thoughts, me letting go of anxiety no matter what happens. It is about my mental freedom. If my self-talk steers away from harmony, if the voices in my head start seeking the negative and loudly shout the pain from failure, then it means that I must become more aware of myself and steer my thoughts towards something positive and helpful in my day.

How you feel, and how you experience life, will be a result of your daily self-talk. Do you punish yourself because you “failed” at something?? Are you judgmental in the way you see your moments in life?? What about the voices in your head about your past…?? Are they loud and always bringing up the heartache and tragedies you lived?? Can you let go of this?? Can you not remain attached to the voices that bring anxiety into your life?? Because if you want happiness, you must let go, you must train your mind to seek positivity in the negative, to see the beauty in the ugly. Not saying this is easy, but just saying this is the only way.

Please see my article about happiness here: The essence of happiness. We can then say that a person’s character is his/her daily thinking. I will become the lover of my life, no matter what happens in it, if I remain self-aware, which is to remain focused in my daily self-talk. I will be what I tell myself daily. If I tell myself daily that life is struggle and that nobody gives me a chance, then that is the way I will remain; because this kind of self-talk is not giving me hope and strength to become better than I am now. But if I tell myself that I can get better and that I will keep on looking for better opportunities, then I will get stronger and change my life; because this kind of self-talk gives me hope and it revives my human spirit.

And it is all about keeping that flame alive (the human spirit), that passion for life which resides in you, maybe buried deeply; however, it never disappears completely as long as you are alive, so seek it. This is your challenge in life. This is my challenge in life. We are all here to keep that flame alive. Because life gets better only in this way.

Increasing strength in life.

  • Life can beats us hard.  Our minds can fall into dark thoughts.  And nothing might seem to us to go as expected.  This can happen to anyone of us, right…??  Life can be a roller coaster of emotions, pulling us here and there.  But, having said that, the character of a person shines through actions.  You fall, you get back up.  You don’t complain, because if you complain then negativity begins to fill your mind, and then feelings of self-pity and defeat overwhelm you.
  • It is simple, not easy; but simple.   It is all about character in life, because life in itself has no meaning; but you put a meaning to each moment you live.  And how you do this…??  By growing a strong character in myself.  If I have a strong character, then failings and challenges won’t affect me.  I will see this as a way to better myself.  This eliminates any self-pity.  But you must increase your character daily, strengthen yourself and your resolve daily.

Review of my books: “I really loved the depth of your approach, specially because sometimes I struggle with low self-esteem and that gets into my relationship with my new wife.  Thanks for helping us become aware of all these things.  Much love to you and yours.”


Review of my books: “It allowed me to see another explanation of love..with a touch of humor i was able to find a sensible place to kick back to enjoy knowing I have always been Loved!!  YOUR advice is like finding a treasure. Thank you so much sharing!”

Do the work yourself.

 

299585-Your-Life-Geter-Better-When-You-Do-Work-On-Yourself-And-The-Rest-Will-Follow

 

Being the best you can be can get confusing at times.  Being highly ethical and moral is something to really pay attention in the way you think, feel and behave daily.

You can be better than what you are right now, always, no matter your circumstance; but you need to recognize your own ego and the excuses you use daily.

If you do not do the work, if you do not recognize your own faults daily, in each moment, then, no matter what you read and what you believe, you will not develop yourself in awakening and as a better human being.

Don’t ask others!  Don’t ask me!  Do not lean on any teacher!  Do not lean on any book!  Analyze yourself, no matter how old and awakened you think you are.  Lead yourself through life knowing, as a fact, that you deeply understand all your dark corners.

Positive and successful traits.

6136525_orig

Personality is a very important thing in life, to be successful in all aspects, to be free and feel free, to connect with other people and guide them.  Being spiritual has to do much with developing a great personality.

Look at Osho, or Jesus, or Krishnamurti, or Sadhguru, or any other great man out there in any aspect.  They get the best out of themselves and out of others, because they connect at a very deep level with who they are.

The more open-minded, the more funny and welcoming you are, the greater your personality; thus, more opportunities, more love and bliss you will attract into your life.

Your Higher Self, people, your situations in life will respond to your personality, to your very character.  A great personality access your positive and successful traits.  A great personality denies all suffering.  Remember this.

Your power.

 

index

 

Do not pretend.  Do not try to sell yourself to others.  Do not specifically act in order to be approved by others.  Be always yourself, with your ignorance, with your great understanding, with your flaws, with your strengths.

The first thing you must realize is that your happiness, your joy, love for your own life, dwells in your very character; therefore, you must be true to yourself, always, without excuses.

Your power as a human being is in acting completely honest and true to yourself.  Life will be a mirror to you, so if you pretend, or if you are fake in any way, then life and what you experience will be measured by this–by your character.

You have to mature and see that the only person to love and to dignify, value and respect, is you; and then you can be a true individual and light the path in your life’s journey.  Meanwhile, lighting also the path of others.

The most precious.

 

Real-Woman-Quotes-Meme-Image-19

 

A  woman  is  the  most  beautiful  and  emotional  creature  in  existence,  because  she  is  ruled  and  driven  by  her  strong  emotional  content,  by  her  powerful  intuition  and  sincere  feelings;  but,  she  carries  pain,  much  struggle,  unfairness,  all  of  them  do,  deep  inside  them. 

The  world,  society,  all  industries  and  institutions  of  men  seek  to  transform  women  to  their  standards,  entice  them  and  tie  them  to  their  views,  and  turn  them  into  perfect  ideals  of  aesthetical  beauty.  

But  a  true  woman  must  rise  from  this,  realize  her  place  and  stand  up  to  all  injustice;  so  claiming  herself,  in  the  name  of  herself,  to  finally  be  free  and  embrace  the  beautiful  and  intuitive  creature  she  truly  is.      

 

“A  smile  and  a  gentleness…”

Your  deepest  thoughts  are  the  treasure  kept.
Your  deepest  feelings  make  you  beautiful.
Oh  beloved,  raise  yourself  above  the  pain,
Quit  your  masks  and  surrender  your  burdens.
There  is  a  smile  and  a  gentleness  inside  you,
Which  others  might  not  be  allowed  to  really  see;
But  it  lifts  you  high  above  and  it  sets  you  free.
So  leave  all  your  anger  and  misapprehensions
From  this  corrupted  world  so  beneath  you,
Allow  the  lover  in  you  to  see  itself  as  I  see  it.

Let  the  world  around  you  crumble  down!
The  tempestuous  skies  be  torn  asunder!
The  men  who  despise  you  be  left  in  oblivion!
When  everything  is  chaos  you  will  forever  glow,
And  realize  that  you  do  not  need  the  masks,
Nor  the  million  ills  and  words  said  against  you;
For  love  is  from  The  Infinite  and  you  are  it.
How  can  the  purest  love  be  not  embraced  within  you…??
To  be  true  to  yourself  is  to  love  who  you  are,
As  you  are,  here,  now,  always  and  forever.

Beyond 1,000 Sorrows.

 

quote-existence-is-sorrow-understand-and-go-beyond-sorrow-this-is-the-way-of-brightness-gautama-buddha-133-96-74

 

So, pain, suffering, challenges, any traumas we may carry, are important in the formation of our character.  You forge steel by extreme heat, and the same is with our characters–we must explore our pain to rise up and forge ourselves to be steel, to learn and be stronger in life.

But, even so, many people get addictive to pain, to their own traumas, to their own chaos lived in the past; in a sense, they are unconsciously choosing their own fate, how they feel and how they will experience their lives based on their addiction to their own pain.

This is getting lost in your pain, and this is why people live in their nightmares and feel depressed, or feel worthless, or feel neglect, or feel a void deep inside.  Be honest with yourself:  Is it rational to make your pain, your hurt, your troubles, your whole life and the way you feel…??

To reach healing, to prosper in all aspects, to truly feel happy and with opportunities to create a better life for yourself you must not drown in your sorrows; but you must see that your pain is to be cherished and felt as a source of energy you can turn into strength to move on and create beauty from it.

What you seek in life is not found in your pain, but it is indeed found using your pain as energy to be positive and create better things for yourself.  Drowning in your sorrows is an unconscious addiction and obsession which is not healthy in your life; so you must let it go.

Creating how you feel.

 

What builds character…??  What gives man and woman their self-respect…??  What gives you honest integrity and capacity to create a heaven for yourself…?? 

What builds the soul of the human creature, what creates value in him, what gets rid of feelings of emptiness and misery, is unquestionably his behavior in the personal and public life.

His strength of character in difficult or challenging situations is everything, because it makes him feel mighty, because it inspires him to feel that he is strong and truthful within himself.

These boosted feelings of strength and truth that he feels when he behaves with integrity in his life, create great self-respect, great self-love; and so, this evaporates any emptiness or darkness within himself.

See, heaven is a state within you which makes you feel whole and truly happy with yourself, with your life in general; and for this you must dedicate your time to behave with integrity in ALL you do, which means to discipline your mind to think in moral values for yourself and in your behaviors towards others.

You project into the world what you are inside, or how you feel inside; therefore, if you feel lazy, or empty, or miserable, or lonely, or immoral, then you will project that same state into your behaviors as well.  And so, your life will always be what you bring into it.

Your life then is a mere reflection of what you are, how of you feel within; hence, it is pointless for you to complain and act out whenever your life turns out depressing or your situations challenging, for your inner states create your outer experience of life.

Your inner states then are managed and kept well nurtured when you choose self-discipline in your actions, through behaviors of integrity, even if you do not feel like it.  Doing good, honest, and noble actions will create that love and happiness you need in order to feel a much better inner state constantly.

A Powerful Personality.

 

ade5ca75464225370f604f024517343b

 

The character, the morals and ethics, the integrity of someone shines in his personality, in the way he moves about things in his life, in the way he interacts with others and in the handling of situations.  Personality shines brightly in the better behavior and attitude towards others and towards life situations.

This is opposite to what many people believe, that personality is mostly in your intentions and thoughts, and in your words and personal life philosophies.  Of course, all this is also important, as thoughts, intentions, words, philosophies of life, are the origin and the glue of the better person and society; but, however, they DO NOT create your actual personality.

Your personality, as stated, is shown and strengthened in your daily behaviors; therefore, if you think kindness and say kindness, then you also have to live kindness through better behaviors.  Higher morals and ethics only exist if the personality is shining brightly in better behaviors.

Now, a good personality based on true integrity must not be rigid.  You cannot be attached to one way of being or behaving, leaving out the better understanding and tolerance of others different from you; so, the superior or better personality must be able to adjust to different environments and to different people, different lifestyles, different views and even behaviors different from yours.

This way of seeing life and universally behaving, without rigidness, without any attachment to your own ways of thinking and behaving, allowing tolerance and understanding towards others, brings power to your very presence, it attracts opportunities and people to your better personality.

You enter a room and you shine, you approach people and they immediately feel your persona, you become attractive in deeper ways, and your character makes you more able to accept your own life and that of others with love and openness, without getting frustrated easily, without stressing yourself easily and without any rigidness whatsoever.
