The Old Story & The New Story
Updated: Mar 27
Psychologists believe that we have a “Set Point” for happiness with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest. They say this is determined by our genetic make-up along with personality traits ingrained in us – so our level of happiness remains relatively constant our entire lives.
I used to believe this was true, but not anymore! I’d say I was about a 4 most of my life, now I’m about a 7. At many moments throughout my day mine goes up to a 10!
For years it was a though I was in a long corridor with a door on the far end, but I was trapped.
On March 16, 2009, eleven years ago today, I stopped the negative story in my head. I walked out that door into the wide open space of reality beyond those false thoughts.
Then for years I felt like I was on the edge of a precipice overlooking a valley of Eden; a beautiful place, but I couldn’t get to it because I’d forget what was true, and I was still holding onto crap!
In January, I let go and leapt off into that wondrous place I’d been looking at; now I’m flying as free as a bird. With my thoughts balanced in truth, I see and sense the beauty all around me.
I feel so much peace, love, joy, and connection. Every day my awareness grows. This new place of existence is more phenomenal than anything I ever imagined – come join me!
