I believe the great secret to happiness is the realization that we create our own future reality by the thoughts and words we think and say today. If we are unhappy with our current situation we can change it. Life can turn on a dime or actually on a thought or a well-chosen word.
When we catch ourselves thinking thoughts or saying words that do not serve us we should replace them with ones that do. A particular section of my daily mantra that reminds me to do just that is: “May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in my sight, O Lord, my strength, my rock, and my redeemer.”
Happiness is not so much a matter of what happens as it is imagination as the Robert Kennedy quote today says so well. Scientists and historians tell us that the great dinosaurs who once ruled this world were all but wiped out by a huge asteroid strike or perhaps some unfavorable climate shift. All that remains of them is to be found in the much smaller reptiles that crawl on the earth and birds that soar above the clouds. If our todays are indeed the result of choices we made yesterday, as I believe they are, I say we should choose to soar above the clouds.
