PEACE AND HAPPINESS
The formula for life though complex is reliable;
when we get it right we experience a serene easiness of being
There are rewards for those who manage both to blend into the community and yet still maintain their own style of being. These rewards tend not to be measured by things or money but by nuances of beauty and contentment, that which makes us sing spontaneously as we are pottering around at home.
A BLUEBIRD PERCHED ON THE GATE OF A COTTAGE

To become happy, radiate goodwill – we get whatever we merit
Our worthiness is always rewarded – and the rewards are always apt and fair. If we have the good fortune to see a bluebird at the threshold of our place of dwelling, it is because we deserve it. This wisdom is the foundation of all wisdom – we get what we deserve.
More accurately, we are offered it. The portents are given – the signs are always there – but it takes constant alertness and creative aspiration to make the best of what is signalled. A general condition can be observed in the unenlightened, that many people feel they have less than they need, less than they deserve. Yet they stand beneath a tree ripe with fruit looking at the rotten produce fallen to earth too fearful or ignorant to look up and make a claim.
It is our faith in abundance that creates abundance. The immanence of rewarding experience is a constant river that flows into our lives and embraces us, carries us and refreshes us; we just have to harvest it.
The most helpful attitude – by which we not only reap the rewards but also stimulate further abundance – is radiant goodwill. We shine our complete sense of confidence and wellbeing upon all who enter our lives. This is the operation of faith, and it has operating principles. One is the knowledge of resonance; if we vibrate optimism we will attract optimal outcomes. From this comes the Golden Rule, which we can interpret in many ways – ‘what goes round comes round’, ‘love thy neighbor as thyself’, or karma for example.
By this attitude we capitalise on every potential and make our lives rich and fulfilling. We behave as though we are rich and we therefore become rich – ‘seem happy to become happy’. Whatever you would choose to receive, then give it first; this applies to love as well as money, goodwill as well as distrust.
This doesn’t work so well without a suitable measure of careful attention being offered to matters of serious consequence. Careless and carefree is a rare combination of qualities and is rare for a reason – because it is so impractical. The wisdom of this degree is for mature adults not silly children or pleasure seekers.
The danger with the casual approach is that we tend to miss opportunities for dimensional shifts, and can degenerate into bland non-entities. There are times to be carefree and times to be careful. Good fortune is not random chance – those who make careful choices and stick tenaciously to their path tend to attract it.
