I’ve been reading an incredible book by Joseph Murphy titled The Power of Your Subconscious Mind. I encourage you to read it if you haven’t already. It’s also available as an audio book on YouTube.
I wanted to share a beautiful prayer from this book on how to choose happiness. Before you get out of bed each morning, when you open your eyes, say to yourself:
“Divine order takes charge of my life today and every day. All things work together for good for me today. This a new and wonderful day for me. There will never be another day like this one. I am divinely guided all day long, and whatever I do will prosper. Divine love surrounds me, enfolds me, and enwraps me, and I go forth in peace.
Whenever my attention wanders away from that which is good and constructive, I will immediately bring it back to the contemplation of that which is lovely and of good rapport. I am a spiritual and mental magnet attracting to myself all things which bless and prosper me. I am going to be a wonderful success in all my undertakings today. I am definitely going to be happy all day long.”
This is a most beautiful way to begin each day. It is important to be fully aware that the world you live in is determined largely by what goes on in your mind, and that you are the only thinker in your universe.
“A man’s life is what his thoughts make of it.” ~Marcus Aurelius
“A man is what he thinks all day long.” ~Emerson
Make it a habit to be happy. The thoughts you consistently permit into your mind have the tendency to manifest themselves in physical conditions. Again and again, remind yourself that you can experience nothing outside of your own way of thinking.
Your key to happiness is in your thoughts and feelings. “Happiness is a mental and spiritual state. Your strength, joy, and happiness consist in finding out the law of divine order and right action lodged in your subconscious mind and by applying these principles in all phases of your life.” ~An excerpt from the book.
Always keep in the forefront of your thoughts that peace, harmony, and tranquility govern your thoughts at all times.
Start today…Make it a habit to be happy!
With much love,
