Dreams and Happiness

“God’s will for me is perfect happiness.”  – A Course in Miracles

We often imagine that God might have a higher purpose than happiness for us, that He would have us sacrifice our happiness to something that might be a higher purpose.   A Course in Miracles calls this reasoning into question.

We are meant to live out our dreams, as Rhonda Byrne (author of The Secret) makes so evident in her book, The Hero.  And the living out of our dreams, what we know as our dreams, from deep inside, is what makes for our happiness.  We do attract that happiness by following the best and deepest calling that we know.  And turning within opens up the challenges, prepares us to shoot for the stars.

As Rhonda and others makes clear in The Hero, we actually must do what Joseph Campbell, the writer on mythology, made the capstone of his life’s work:  Follow your bliss.  This bliss is a synonym for one’s happiness, and there is simply no grander way to plan a life.  The powers of the Universe kick in, God Himself, and we are shortly presented with life choices that will make all the difference.  The law of attraction brings dream, bliss, and remarkable opportunity together.

We are well on our way to the life that we have attracted by our dreams.

And we are joyous.
