Eight Clues to Everlasting Happiness
by Robert Thibodeau
Too busy to find yourself? Too busy and worried to investigate your own free spirit? My second spiritual teacher told me long ago, “At the 101 level, there is no god unless you prove there is by the way you live”. Jesus said to the apostles “Do you not know? Ye are Gods in the becoming”.
Christ, Lao Tzu, Chan Tze, Buddha, Nagarjuna, Tsong Ka Pa, Pythagoras, Blavatsky, Steiner, Osho, Ohsawa, so many gave us such clue. Here’s my hermetic macrobiotic clues for happiness and infinite luck, good karma.
- Always attune to the infinite supply of insight, energy, and good heartedness by sharing your best. Always be open to receive what life offers as an opportunity to grow, learn, and awaken to ever renewing energy.
- Always be hungry–for learning, life, and further experience inward and outward creating space for greater peace, understanding, and good will.
- Always allow yourself sacred deep sleep–enabling digestion of past experience creating new capacities for further growth, adventure, and experience. When you can’t sleep, read deep spiritual literature and relax, take a breath in of the divine imagination.
- Always have good memory by listening well to everything. Work to attain the ability to align oneself with the spirit of virtue, the dharma, mindfulness, cosmic memory, akasha, universal mind, universal peace, in stillness and infinite vastness. Imagine it! Cosmic memory is the ability to see the golden thread weaving through each and every moment life offers. Imagine it.
- Always be happy to give and receive learning, blessings, and helpful hand. Deep appreciation, gratitude, and thankfulness for all life’s joys and challenges opens spiritual doors of new opportunity, healing, and good fortune (vs. misfortune).
- Always be inwardly at-one and attuned to the infinite spirit of the universe; egoless striving for awareness and truth. Rest in the great oneness as well as the great uniqueness of each expression of that oneness. Be immediate and present in both action and response, yet resting in the heart of eternity. We are the rainbow uniting the great divide.
- Always abide in truth and the happiness for all creation, all others, all of the world within and without. At the least, everything is an opportunity to learn ad grow; that is, purification, learning and growing up! Right judgment brings about a new world or order of the universe (see Ohsawa’s ‘Zen Macrobiotics’).
- Spiritual Justice is the harmony of the inner and outer, the heavenly and earthly making for beauty, health, virtue, freedom, peace, eternal truth, and happiness.
Theosophy is the wisdom learning, the wise ways of ‘gods in the becoming’ meaning virtues and realizations, truth, in the becoming.
Anthroposophy is the wisdom of little moments mattering to big moments. It is the wisdom of awareness and mindfulness arising from knowledge of the macrocosm and microcosm, heaven and earth, coming into creative balance. Anthroposophy awakens the knowledge of the Christos as a healing force to the etheric/astral worlds of the heavenly garden that earth potentially could be.
Macrobiotics is the wisdom of the macro or centripetal forces of the peripheral heavenly energies learning to balance the earthly centrifugal outgoing energies. Macrobiotics is learning to balance outer and inner, higher and lower, acid and alkaline, yin and yang, to find a creative balance bringing about health, happiness, and freedom.
Plato said “If you are willing to learn, anything can happen”. Happiness, love, joy, and freedom is a learning choice, an unending story, an ever-flowering journey to wholeness.
Learning is to imagine ourselves and the world healthy, holy, wise, and loving. Imagination and learning is the first step. The second step is living it. The third step is learning from our own experience, as well as the experience of others. The fourth step in the heart of awakening and will be the subject of my next article. Blessings.
