The Three Keys To Happiness
Happiness is something that we all strive for in life. We all want to experience joy in every moment. However, somehow, someway, we may seem to miss that mark, that bulls-eye that makes it all happen. Complications in life and our reactions to them bring consequences that result in less than savory results. This is ok, as this life is one big opportunity for learning. If we remember that, then the uncomfortable times in life can be better understood through the work each of us must do. Also, being reminded of the keys to happiness can assist us in bringing more of what we desire into manifestation.
Will – Wisdom – Love
There are three basic keys to happiness: will, wisdom, and love.
Will is nothing more than our strength of desire. It is what drives us to make decisions in our life. Will has many ways in which it can affect our lives. Our will can cause us to have indecision as well as strength to take difficult steps. Our own strength to persevere is another example of will. Our own free will is a gift from divine source, it is that key that has been given to allow us freedom to make any decision we wish in our lives. This will we possess is what gives us our own power, as it is literally a strength within us that cannot be taken away by anyone.
Wisdom is understanding attained through knowledge in life. It is knowledge transcended through experience. At every point in our lives we attain more and more wisdom. It is wisdom of this world and the people in it that helps us to understand what human nature and the conditions of this world truly are. We can deny wisdom or embrace it. We can see truths through wisdom or dismiss them. We can allow our own will of wisdom to develop or stagnate in this life. It is through wisdom that we develop a looking glass in which we can understand that which we were previously unable to comprehend. Wisdom developed and allowed is a key to relaxing our own reactions to elements in our experience that seem to bring discord. Through wisdom, will can be more correctly applied, leading to more satisfactory results in our own lives.
Love is nothing more than acceptance and allowing of all things. Love is an understanding that good or bad, this world comes with blessings regardless of the image portrayed. Love is the ability to let go, the acceptance of what is and what is not, and the allowing of aspects of this life that may seem to go against the grain. Love is knowing that the only thing that can be truly controlled in this life is the self. Love is eyes looking and admiring, regardless of the perception emitted. Just as there is black and white, it is the spectrum, not the favorable colors, that love makes inclusive in its vision. Love can be the most misunderstood aspect in life and yet the most simple, because it involves in itself both the misunderstood and the understood.
Understanding all three keys to happiness is not always an easy thing. Love is the will to accept through wisdom. Since we are all working on our own free will, our inner strength, we are all continually developing love. Because each of us is at different stages of wisdom, we are all becoming more and more in tune with love over time.
Because love is something that requires will and wisdom, its source, the well spring we all strive to draw from, truly only resides within us. We can try to tap into love from others, but that source is always temporary and can be draining to others, as their source is from within as well.
These keys to happiness, they have a home within our very heart, within our spiritual selves. Each of us can develop happiness of unending proportion. However, the greatest truth is that these keys only unlock doorways within ourselves. Trust yourself and go within as this is where true happiness begins.
