CHAPTER 9

Happiness

Continues…..

Freedom From Negative Moods

Resurrect yourself from the littleness of life, the little things that disturb you.

******

Nobody likes misery. Why not analyze yourself next time you are in a mood? You will see how you are willingly, willfully making yourself miserable. And while you are doing so, others around you feel the unpleasantness of your state of mind….You must remove moods from your mental mirror.

******

Always think of your mind as a garden, and keep it beautiful and fragrant with divine thoughts; let it not become a mud pond, rank with malodorous hateful moods. If you cultivate the heavenly scented blooms of peace and love, the bee of Christ Consciousness [Kutastha Chaitanya] will steal into your garden. As the bee seeks out only those flowers that are sweet with honey, so God comes only when your life is sweet with honeyed thoughts.
