Happiness and Security Are the Primary Desires
By Remez Sasson
What do you really want to attain or achieve? Do you have some clear goals, or you don't know what you really want? Do you go through life, wherever it takes you, or you have definite plans, and work on accomplishing them?
Not everyone has goals. Many go through life wanting this and that, but never something definite. Some even feel bad for not really knowing what to do with their lives.
We read and hear so much about the importance of having goals, but the truth is that most people don't have definite goals. Actually, all people have two important goals, though they are not consciously aware of them.
What are these two goals? What is it that you really desire, money? A better job? Love? A house? A new car? To travel abroad? Do you wish to do something big, or maybe you are satisfied with your life as it is, and don't want to change it? If you analyze your goals, small or big, you will ultimately discover that what you really want are happiness and security. Everything you do is motivated by the desire to gain happiness and security, whether it is money, a TV set, a house, a car, a new job, love or losing weight.
You desire this and that because you believe their attainment will bring you happiness and security, and therefore freedom from stress, anxieties and fears.
Too often, people devote a lot of time and efforts for getting something that in the end does not bring them the happiness or security they have anticipated. Ask yourself, what would bring you a sense of happiness and security? Analyze each goal sincerely, and think whether it would bring the coveted happiness and security you desire. If it does not, why not find some better goal?
True happiness does not depend on possessions and circumstances, true happiness emerges from within. True security begins as a mental state, as inner strength, as faith in yourself, and in the power that has created the Universe. If you feel happy and secure it will be easier to attain happiness and security in the material world.
You can awaken inside you feelings of happiness and security, even if now they are absent in your life. Awaken these feelings several times a day, by visualizing and feeling that you are happy and secure on the mental and material levels. Feel and imagine how fulfilling it is to experience and enjoy these feelings.
It is a sensation of inner harmony, peace, and the conviction that you can attain whatever you want.
If you persist with this action, and do not destroy this feeling by negative thinking, doubts, worries or disbelief, it will start to affect the way you think, act and react. You will become optimistic, energetic and motivated. You will see new opportunities and have the motivation to follow them. There is no magic here, just simple natural laws at work.
Everything starts in the mind. Start the sense of happiness and security within you, and it will manifestin in the material world.
All actions are motivated by a subconscious desire for happiness and security and their derivatives, which are inner peace, harmony, love, good relationships, success, money, possessions, etc.
It is good to have at least some definite goals. They give you direction, something to aspire for, motivation and something to live for. However, even if you don't have anything definite, just focus your mind and feelings on the sense of happiness and security, feel that they are real in your life, pretend they are real, and have no doubts about it.
If you continue doing so, you will soon see how your life changes and improves, as you truly desire.
