Okay – so I closed this & went on to the next article (which talks about change). I’ve read so many articles and websites dedicated to finding happiness “now” – being content with now, being joyous & prosperous – now… (just as you mention above). I so desperately want to be joyous and content with my current world, but the more I read such articles, the more frustrated I become. Maybe I’m just so busy with my day to day that there is no room for application of any of the things I read? I don’t know. I find all of it fascinating and frustrating at the same time. How do I “be happy” with the now when I want so much more? And yes – I feel guilty for wanting more… like what I have isn’t enough when I clearly have a wonderful husband and terrific kids….. I’m 46 and all these feelings of restless started around 40 and just seem to be getting worse, not better, no matter what I read or do…. Any thoughts?
Feeling some discontent – yes? Some sense that there is more to life than you are experiencing now?
Congratulations – you are in touch with your internal guidance system – and it is (at least for now) gently letting you know that an adjustment is needed to keep you moving along your Divine Path.
And that is something to be Happy about – you are in communication with your Higher Self –
It is now time to get present with this Guidance System and to use it to get back into the center of your path. Begin to pay more attention to how you feel as you move through the day. Ask your self often….
“What Am I feeling Now? What steps can I take to feel just a bit better now?” And then make those little course corrections, paying attention as you do to how they affect the way you are feeling.
Also – instead of searching outside of yourself for the answers – I am moved to suggest that you spend more time looking inside. It may be helpful for you to personify this feeling – give it a name – think of it as a dear friend who is living inside of you and who (at least for now) can only communicate with you through feelings. Set the intention that all is for your highest and best – and then talk to your internal friend – and feel her answers. Do this often and I expect that the feelings will soon be joined by pictures – and even words – as you begin to develop a deeper and deeper relationship with that part of you that knows your path and joyfully walks it with you.
