a Recipe for Happiness

My dear friend Judy Foster of Women’s Wisdom Master Mind posted this today:

A Recipe for Happiness
Be silent and calm every night for at least half an hour, preferably much longer, before you retire, and again in the morning before starting the day’s activity. This will produce an undaunted, unbreakable inner habit of happiness that will make you able to meet all the trying situations of the everyday battle of life. With that unchangeable happiness within, go about seeking to fulfill the demands of your daily needs. Seek happiness more and more in your mind, and less and less in the desire to acquire things. Be so happy in your mind that nothing that comes can possibly make you unhappy. Then you can get along without things that you have been accustomed to. Be happy because you know that you have acquired the power not to be negative, and because you know, too, that you can acquire at will whatever you need, and that you will never again become so material-minded that you will forget your inner happiness, even though you should become a millionaire.

This. This. This!

Regardless of how we personally interpret or experience the Holy.  Regardless of which individual causes we are most inspired to dedicate time to.  Regardless of where we place our priorities on our day-to-day lives.  When any among our human family are adrift in turbulent waters of life, spiritually or physically, we are each Called to form such a chain as this.  Because we are each other’s saviors.  That is why we are here together on this planet.
