Happy for No Reason
Nancy Bowers, RScP
“God, being Love, is also happiness.” Lesson 103, A Course in Miracles
God is Love: Clear, Sure, Confident, Fearless. It is Love. He is Love. She is Love and therefore Happiness: unbridled Happiness. Happy for no reason; happy just to be, to express, to see, to surround all Its Children (us!) with Love, Love, Love. No matter what, no matter where; no matter how messy the circumstances. God is always Love. God is always Happiness.
And my heart beats that happiness, it soaks up the Love and pumps out the joy. Today, I am happy for no reason – okay I have reasons but I am happy even without those reasons – because I am loved, loved, loved and I am this blessed child of God. I am a child of the Divine. You are a child of the Divine. Loved, loved, loved and wrapped in that Goodness 24/7.
So I affirm happiness for no reason; happy just to be. Happy just because I am alive, you are alive. No stories about how things should have been different, no tales of woe because things didn’t go your way. You are. I am. Love is here. Happiness is now.
Take a sip. Drink it in. God is everywhere present. No matter the appearance, God is here, so Love is here, so Happiness is here. Claim it. It’s yours. I claim it. It’s mine.
And I love that it is. I love that as much of it as I care to claim is mine. It’s always available and I love that. I’m grateful for that. I’m grateful that God never withholds Love. It’s unconditional. How thankful I am that God loves unconditionally. No matter how badly I think I’ve messed up, God still loves me. God still loves you. We are in this together.
I let go of any story I was telling that kept Love away. I let go of ideas of lack and limitation. Love is unlimited and I release it, knowing it is not diminished one iota by being set free. I am happy for no reason. Won’t you be, too? And so it is! Amen.
