Whether you realize it or not, experiencing Love is all you really want. Money, treasures, even good health and better relationships are all things you think that you need. But they are only strategies - means, not ends.
If your happiness is dependent on something outside of you, then your happiness is an illusion that can vanish once that person, place or thing is gone.
People with a lot of lower levels of energy are at the effect of the world. Something happens, or someone says something, and they go from being happy to unhappy at the drop of a dime. Those with higher levels of consciousness, though, create happiness as they choose. That doesn't mean that higher energy people are always happy. It means they don't judge unhappiness as a bad thing, and so, are able to experience life's pains in the moment, instead of making mountains out of molehills, or holding on to painful experiences long after they happen.

(Today's blog is excerpted from iPEC's, The Law of Being. The Law of Being (LOB) is a complete self-mastery program designed for iPEC graduates. It is a set of coaching tools that can be used as individual resources or as a complete program and focuses on the “being” topics a client might bring to coaching. This program focuses intensely on the WHO: on clients’ belief systems about who they believe they are and what they believe about the world.)
