It is not possible for you to consistently feel positive emotion about something and have it turn out badly, just as it is not possible for you to consistently feel bad about something and have it turn out well–for the way you feel will tell you if you are allowing your natural well-being or not.”Ask and It is Given, by Jerry and Esther Hicks, p.5
I love this statement. It is just so simple and so clear, with so many great implications for a life well-enjoyed.
Chris, there are so many wonderful things you can do with this statement. For the rest of your life, you will have access to this wonderful reality, the reality that if you make your life about feeling good, then you “can’t go wrong.” Isn’t that a wonderful thing? Don’t you love that? That is just so awesome!
Yes, that really is. I mean, it is such a simple philosophy, when you think about it. It’s amazing how complicated and convoluted some of us can make it. But it’s just not complicated! Certainly I get the concept.
Yes, you are getting it. More and more. Just keep going. Keep exploring, keep paying attention, you have now been “infected” with this truth, you can’t unlearn it. Ha. And why would you want to?
Exactly. It is a great statement. And I am looking at any areas where there has been not-so-positive emotion going on. And I can think of a few things from the past few days. Er. I just gotta keep paying attention.
It just makes so much sense that if you are “enjoying the ride,” so to speak, that you are on track. Because, I mean, that’s all our lives are: A ride. So let’s enjoy it! Enjoy the journey, as they say.
Indeed, Chris! That’s all it is. If you enjoy the ride, you will enjoy the “destination.” And then the ride will continue. Really, all there is is the ride. So best to enjoy it! And the more you enjoy it, the more will come to you to enjoy. Isn’t that wonderful?
