How To Find Happiness Without Taking Too Much Time

Happiness isn‹t something that happens to you, it’s something that we create. As we create it, we create opportunity. With opportunity comes opportunity to develop gratitude, to have inner peace, and to create that place for ourselves where it feels comfortable. Happiness is hard to find—it’s even harder to stay alive.

It’s not something that happens to you, it’s something you create. You create opportunities, but you don’t realize it until the opportunity arrives and you get to experience that sense of joy; it is there. At that moment, what you have created, with the right mindset, is an infinite source of joy. So it’s not something that happens to you—it’s something you create.

We created opportunity because happiness is not a product—it’s the product. It is your consciousness that created all of these opportunities for us and it is your consciousness that creates a place for yourself within that which you create.

And so, you can create a positive and loving atmosphere in you, for you, at any point of time in your life. For whatever reason, you might need to create something that makes things more manageable, you might need to create an environment that makes a situation more tolerable, you might need to create a space in your life if all your friends are too selfish or you want to have your own space to be your own person. You can create opportunities in your life for you to do what you need to do. If there are people surrounding you, you can create an opportunity for yourself to be able to have that relationship as well. So I think it really all depends on what you need to do in your life and whatever environment you’re in, and it will come around—it’s your awareness that creates it.

So, we were all happy together then?

Well yeah, we were all very much aware of it.

“I could get so much more happy with this than I could ever get with my own happiness. Because I’m always looking for the next good thing.” ~  “I would never have to worry about things ever again; ever. I could get so much more happy with this than I could ever get with my own happiness. Because I’m always looking for the next good thing.” -Bethany, the wife of Matthew, on her relationship with Matthew, on her blog.

You’re looking for a better happiness, right?

When you look for the next good thing, you’re not really looking for something that is greater than you, or that is higher than you. You are just looking for something that is better than you. If you look for something greater or something more awesome or better to you, that doesn’t usually happen. It usually only happens when you look for something that is even better than you. And so, the first thing we would say is that you have to look within yourself and find your biggest good. You have to make a conscious decision to want that thing, because if you don’t want something, then it won’t happen.

And to do that, we would say you have to do something to yourself. You have to do something to see the things that you do. You have to do something that will increase the quality of your time, because if you’re just doing things that increase the quality of your pleasure and increase your enjoyment, then you’re never going to get any more. So, that’s the first thing to do and then you get to start creating that opportunity. Because you know what a beautiful thing happiness is to experience, right? You get to see it for a little bit and realize that it IS happening and that its not too late to experience it. It’s possible. It’s available. You don’t need to take more than one good experience at a time. You don’t have to try to figure out what you are going to do because it will just be the same.
