I found the real joy and happiness!
I’m a 29 years old girl living in Europe.
My life has been a mixture of good and bad events. Since 2001 my life seemed to be a place where worry, tears, fear, and disappointments came together to have a wonderful time.
I didn’t know why I had to struggle so much to achieve love and appreciation from people around me.
Somehow I finished my University and my childhood dream becoming an engineer was almost there. I managed to find a decent job as an engineer and from a outer view my life was so good. Inside me stormy weather was going on and nothing was going that well. People I trusted so much and loved betrayed me and left me alone. I still remember those nights when I fell asleep having a good cry.
There was no peace in my heart. I felt so much fear – fear that those I love will leave me. I imagined all those negative things. Life was too boring if there was not any drama right? Yes, that was my old way of thinking, which caused me so much pain and bad times.
I didn’t know that life actually can be exciting and interesting feeling only peace, joy, happiness and true love. And I am surprised how all this good feelings can make a good motion.
In the fall of 2008 I started reading all those self-developing books and focused very much on “flowing with the Universe”. I used it to find my life-partner. As long as I was in harmony with my inner wellbeing everything seemed to “flow” in the right direction, but somehow fear took over, and my outer circumstances made me to doubt about the whole thing.
In only 2 months all the good energy I have created since Fall 2008 disappeared, including my boyfriend. And there I was in the same bad circle in the mid of March 2009. I was clueless, and so down. Everything seemed to be so good for few months ago and out of nothing it all vanished.
I focused towards the spiritual books again around May 2009.
One of my friends told me about “The Secret” last year, but somehow I didn’t get my self to the point to order the book or go to the library.
I continued reading the books by Robin S Sharma, Deepak Chopra, Auriela McCarthy and many others. My life seemed to flow in a more peaceful path, but reading “The Secret” gave me the last push into the real world of happiness and joy.
Before I ordered the book for myself, I gifted it to my close relatives and on my trip home from Toronto, CA, I bought the “Daily Teachings” by Rhonda Byrne in Heathrow (London) Airport in October 2009. I read few pages in it but still didnt get around to reading the book, instead I gifted more of “The Secret” to my close relatives.
Finally a few weeks ago I read book and together with the “Daily Teachings” they gave me the answers to my questions, which had been blocking my happiness and real joy.
When reading it, it felt too good to be true, but it was, indeed.
I bought a small gift box placed a diamond shaped glass piece on it and placed all my wishes in it. Every day I touch the diamond stone and make a wish.
Ever since I read the following quote from the “Daily Teachings” my days have been wonderful, and I want to share this with you.
“To create your tomorrow, go over your day tonight when you are in bed just before you fall asleep, and feel gratitude for the good moments. If there was something you wanted to happen differently, replay it in your mind the way you wanted it to go. As you fall asleep, say, “I will sleep deeply and wake up full of energy. Tomorrow is going to be the most beautiful day of my life.”
Good night!” – By Rhonda Byrne.
It really works!!! And I want you to try it too.
here is some incidents – small ones but which made my days wonderful:
1) The day I started to say the above mentioned quote was last Sunday, I went to a shopping centre, They had a Xmas tree on which people who needed things had made a list of wishes. I took one of the papers and went to a shop and bought a Xmas gift for one who needed a pot and handed the gift to the information desk in the shopping centre, so they could deliver my gift to the right person. I only know it is for a lady who is 68 years old and she will be happy the evening on 24th Dec, 2009, when she will open the gift 🙂 and she won’t know who it is from but will send me a happy thought.
Monday just before noon, I checked my mail at work. My book club editor has written to me. They were glad to receive my review I sent to them on “The Secret”. And the editor wanted to publish it in their coming magazines in 2010. She asked me which book I wanted as a gift. WOW!! I was so happy.
Initially I didnt have any intention to send the review to the book club. I only wrote the review to send to my relatives and friends, to make them to read “The Secret”.
I was amazed. I just gave a gift to one who really need it the day before, and said the quote before sleeping that night, and day after I get this wonderful mail. You may have guessed which book I asked for. Yes, I asked for “The Secret”, so I could give it to my brother as my Xmas gift. 🙂
Now I am going to make 2 people happy with only buying one gift!!!
Some may think this is small things…yes it is. But the happiness these moments creates are invaluable.
Every time I feel it is hard to believe, I use to feel grateful for the things I have. And then it is so easy to believe.
Ever since I started saying the above mentioned quote, I feel happiness, I feel love around me even I am single, I feel joy, and I see beauty around me.
I visit this website regularly – just to keep me on the path – the path which offers so many delightful moments. It is just the beginning. I imagine how amazing it would be if I can practise every day, every month, every year in my life.
I am so grateful to own these books and this movie and I will always be grateful to Rhonda Byrne and the team behind the movie and the team of people who appear in the movie.
I feel so much love and happiness, that I wanted to write this so people like me can be inspired and get rid of any sign of doubts coming to their mind.
Now I want to go sleep, but before I do, I wanna say THANK YOU from bottom of my heart!!!
