Your Subconscious Mind and Your Happiness
William James, the father of American psychology, said that the most significant discovery of the nineteenth century was not in the realm of physical science. The most significant finding was the subconscious’s power touched by faith, so believe in things not seen.
Every human being is that limitless reservoir of power, which can overcome any problem in the world. Real and lasting happiness will come into your life the day you get the clear realization that you can overcome any weakness—the day you realize that your subconscious can solve your problems, heal your body, and prosper you beyond your fondest dream. You might have felt very happy when your child was born when you got married, when you graduated from college, or when you won a great victory or a prize.
You might have been delighted when you became engaged to the loveliest girl or the most handsome man. You could go on and list innumerable experiences, which have made you happy.
However, no matter how marvelous these experiences are, they do not give real, lasting happiness—they are transitory. The Book of Proverbs answers: Whosoever trust in the higher power, happy, is he. When you trust in the higher power (the power and wisdom of your subconscious mind) to lead, guide, govern, and direct all your ways, you will become poised, serene, and relaxed then you realized that happiness starts in your subconscious mind.
As you radiate love, peace, and goodwill to all, you are building a superstructure of happiness for all the days of your life.
It would help if you chose happiness.
Happiness is a state of mind. There is a phrase in the excellent book which says, Choose ye this day whom ye will serve. You have the freedom to choose happiness. This may seem extraordinarily simple, and it is. Perhaps this is why people stumble over the way to happiness; they do not see the simplicity of the key to happiness.
The great things of life are simple, dynamic, and creative. They produce well-being and happiness. St. Paul reveals to you how you can think your way into a life of active power and enjoyment in these words:” Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are real, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” PHIL. 4:8.Source
How to choose happiness.
Begin now to choose happiness. This is how you do it: When you open your eyes in the morning, say to yourself, “Divine order takes charge of my life today and every day. All things work together for good for me today. This is a new and wonderful day for me. There will never be another day like this one. I am divinely guided all day long, and whatever I do will prosper.
Divine love surrounds me, enfolds me, and en-wraps me, and I go forth in peace. Whenever my attention wanders away from that which is useful and constructive, I will immediately bring it back to the contemplation of a lovely and valuable report.
I am a spiritual and mental magnet attracting to myself all things, which bless and prosper me. I am going to be a remarkable success in all my undertakings today. I am going to be happy all day long.” Start each day in this manner; then you will be choosing happiness, and you will be a radiant, joyous person.
It would be best if you desired to be happy.
There is one significant point about being happy. It would help if you sincerely desired to be satisfied. Some people have been depressed, discouraged, and unhappy so long that was they suddenly made happy by some wonderful, useful, joyous news; they would be like the woman who said to me, “It is wrong to be so happy!” They have been so accustomed to the old mental patterns that they do not feel at home being happy! They long for the former, depressed, unhappy state, but why? You have a choice to be in control of your happiness.
Many people choose unhappiness by entertaining these ideas: “Today is a black day; everything will go wrong.” I am not going to succeed.” “Everyone is against me.” “Business is bad, and it is going to get worse.” “I’m always late.” “I never get the breaks.” “He can, but I can’t.”
If you have this attitude of mind the first thing in the morning, you will attract all these experiences to you, and you will be miserable. Begin to realize that the world you live in is primarily determined by what goes on in your mind.
Marcus Aurelius, the great Roman philosopher, and sage said, “A man’s life is what his thoughts make of it.” Emerson, America’s foremost philosopher, said, “A man is what he thinks all day long.”
The thoughts you habitually entertain in your mind tend to actualize themselves in physical conditions. Make sure you do not indulge in negative ideas, defeatist thoughts, or unkind, depressing thoughts. Recall frequently to your mind that you can experience nothing outside your mentality. Your subconscious mind is the recorder of your daily experience, and you decide what will be stored in your mind, so choose wisely every day.
I will conclude with this; you create happiness as you become aware of who you are; when you return to your original state of love before becoming domesticated in this world.
