You have a choice now – and this is where consciousness comes in. You can either form a pact with that which was, is, and will be, for your joy, for your happiness (that you require). Unquestionably, you need that; you need fulfillment. You need to be stimulated. Or you can try to get that from that which isn’t – wasn’t, isn’t, and won’t be. So, you’ve got a choice.
If you try to get it from that which wasn’t, isn’t, and won’t be, you’ll be constantly trying to chase the happiness. And it’ll be like, “I think I’ve got it. Oops, no I don’t. I think I’ve got it. Oops, no, I don’t. Oops. Oops!”
A bit like this. You’re trying to catch a mosquito. Right? (You’ve done this, right?) You’re trying to catch a mosquito and you go like this! And you think you got it. Right? And you look. And guess what? You don’t got it. You don’t have it. And you try it again! And you try it again.
And to be able to catch that mosquito, you have to have really good eyes. And if you don’t have good eyes, there’s no way you’re going to catch that thing. And the thing is, that mosquito is so small that when you actually move your hand, the air pressure you cause in front of your hand moves it away from you.
So, you have to be very careful. Same thing with flies – if you’re trying to catch a fly, the first thing a fly is going to do is move backwards. So, you have to come in from the back to be able to catch it or kill it. Because that’s how a fly takes off. It can’t take off forward, has to take off backwards.
So, when you are going for the joy that you need – you need joy; you need to be happy; you need to be content; you need to be in peace – there’s no question about it. But when you try to get it from that which wasn’t, isn’t, and won’t be, it’s a bit like trying to catch the mosquitoes, and you keep looking at your hand to see if you caught it. And unfortunately, you don’t have it. You just think you have it.
Or you could hedge your bets on that was, is, and will be. And those same people, (let’s see), those same people who out of the goodness of their heart, said “This isn’t” to the finite – also said that “If you make that connection to the infinite, you will be fulfilled, that you will have, you will have the joy. You will have the peace. You will have the fulfillment that you cannot even imagine.”
When you’re connected to the right source, having your heart filled with gratitude is “no action required.” It is automatic.
