The Law of Attraction tells us that Happiness is a choice. It tells us that only we are responsible for our feelings – Being Happy or Sad is a choice. We can choose to be happy or we can choose to be Sad!
I used to think that that if I get all that I want I’ll be happy. But I have known that this is not the case. Our desires are endless. They don’t have a limit. When we satisfy ourselves with one desire, the other shows up. Its pretty much clear that just by fulfilling our desires can not make us happy. Though most of the times it does, we have a problem – as far as our desires are going to be fulfilled we are happy, but in case if there is just one desire what would happen? We’ll feel sad about not having that particular desire fulfilled even though our other desires are fulfilled.
If we talk about situations, they don’t fit the scenario either. Given any circumstances and situation, a person can be happy one day and sad on the other. Similarly for a given situation a person can be happy while some other won’t be. Let’s consider an example, there is a Rich Fellow who earns Rs 1,00,000/- per day. And there is poor fellow who makes 1,000/- per day. On a given day both get Rs 50,000/-. The poor person will be extremely happy while the rich person will be sad. So situations aren’t the reason for happiness either.
Similarly, person, place or any thing can not be the reason for our Happiness. The only reason for Happiness is US! Its our attitude towards people, places, things and situations. If you want to be happy no one can take that away from you!
Its amazing that these things have been told to us in many forms – even in our religious scriptures. Consider The Geeta for a moment. It has a verse which translates to something like this – “A devotee who is not very happy in abundance and not very sad in adversity is the one who is the most dear to me. For such a devotee situations doesn’t matter and he is sure to get a place in the Heaven.” The Law of Attraction tells us the same thing. Anyone who has Control over his Emotions will reaps the Fruits of the Universe.
