Spiritual & Inspirational Sunday Post November 8, 2009

Welcome to my Spiritual & Inspirational Sunday post. For over twenty-five years I have collected various spiritual and  inspirational quotes and messages. My hope is that when you read these, you will pause and reflect. Perhaps you will share this post with a friend who just so happens to be in need of reading what I am sharing today.

Last week, I ran across of piece of paper in the drawer where I keep quotes or words of wisdom that resonate with me and thought I would use it in my Sunday post. I do not know when I read this or where it came from- just that I had jotted down the following on a piece of paper:

Being happy does not mean everything needs to be perfect. It just means you’ve decided to see beyond the imperfection. So don’t say you are happy because everything’s alright. Be happy because everything sucks and your are still doing just fine. 

Earlier this week  I received two Abraham & Hicks daily email quotes from a friend. They seemed to relate to the above quote so I decided to include them. 

Everything exists for joy. There is not one other reason for life than joy. We've got nothing to prove to anyone, because nobody other than All-That-Is is watching. In other words, we're not trying to get brownie points from some other galaxy. We're not trying to get someplace else; we're not trying to get it done, because there is no ending--we cannot get it done. Everything exists for the purpose of joy in the moment.  November 3, 2009

A happy life is just a string of happy moments. But most people don't allow the happy moment, because they're so busy trying to get a happy life. November 4, 2009

These serve as a reminder to me to stay in the moment- to chose to be happy- and to choose to be joyful. I don’t need to feel like I have to wait to have fun until everything is in order- the laundry is done, the dishwasher is unloaded, the house is clean, my next post is ready, etc.  I am learning to embrace life today- to enjoy the moment and not put off having a joyful experience.  Hopefully you will choose to be happy and joyful in the moment!  Blessings.  …susan
