THE SPIRITUALLY UPLIFTING SENSE OF FULFILMENT
When we have done something good it feels good
"The practise of happiness"
In one sense or another, our spiritual journey is motivated by a yearning to end the state of separation in which we live. Sufis call this yearning Ishq, Divine Nostalgia. It arises when we leave the Source, and acts as a beacon to bring us home again. We need this beacon because the immersion into physicality makes us forget our Origin, so we need to feel what we cannot remember and bring to mind. We are safe and effectively at home when we find the direction to walk and the certainty that we will walk in no other direction; then we know deep and permanent joy.

The richness of our own life potential is illustrated in Nature’s achievements
To be able to bring our destiny to fruition, it is completely appropriate to set the terms upon which we are willing to meet the world. Keeping control over our time and circumstances is very empowering and strengthens our position in all of our many interactions.
As we might see in a tropical garden, or an image of lovebirds, Nature delights in exhibiting how rich things can be when they reach self-fulfilment. We affirm this to be a metaphor for the potential richness of our own life.
It is natural to share such abundance, and such giving always tends to attract a deepening of emotional rapport and softening of personality.
When the personality has reached a high point of maturity on the inner level, then we become highly capable of performing our actions on a more magical level.
A sense of self-consistency becomes observable, has great appeal, and wins loyalty and cooperation to support our intentions. Results are achieved when the force of our clear intention is presented with certainty, and a special atmosphere that shows of our expectation of a particular successful outcome.
When we are capable of creating the world we choose, then there is always a danger of experiencing jealousy in its active or passive exhibition. It is good to find a way to minimise either of these unhelpful motivations, because we want neither of these feelings to corrupt our sense of well-being.
Most of us raise emotional romantic issues in importance above practical – and we are free to trust in the affirmation that life is for love and joy.
