Chapter 5 ~ I Love People and People Love Me
This article contains fragments from the chapter 5 of the book Magic Sparkles of Happiness.
“There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer….
No door that enough love will not open
No gulf that enough love will not bridge,
No wall that enough love will not throw down….
It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble,
How great the mistake,
Sufficient realization of love will resolve it all.
If only you could love enough,
You would be the happiest and most powerful being in the universe." – Emmet Fox
I love my work and my work loves me.
I love life and life loves me. I love people and people love me. I love appreciation and appreciation loves me.
I love my daily activities and my daily activities love me. I love the Universe and the Universe loves me. I love books and books love me. I love my city and my city loves me.
I love self-love and self-love loves me. I love grace and grace loves me. I love serenity and serenity loves me. I love relief and relief loves me.
These affirmations make you feel love.
Feeling love makes you happy.
This self-training makes you conscious of how many things you actually love that you were not too aware of. What we love, we also have, in our reality.
So whatever you have, including the fact that you have yourself, you love.
You need to loudly say it or write it on a piece of paper that you love it. You might think you don’t feel that you love what you have since you never took the time to say that you love them.
All is love in this world; therefore what you have, you already have loved them. So say it, to yourself, say that you love everything you already have.
Bring this love into your consciousness. It is a long list, right? And is a long list for everyone. Every one of us already has a long, long, long list of things we already love.
We should take more time to become aware of them, to count them. And we will get used to become mesmerized of what we have. We will feel content, blessed and serene.
“What you seek is seeking you" – Rumi
Happiness is an energy process created by a higher force.
It exists in our world. Maybe in other worlds this process doesn’t exist. Although I think this higher force made it universal since it is one of the most beautiful creations and God loves this process very much.
I am comparing doing daily happiness with doing daily archery. Do we know what archery is? Yes we do… but in general. We acknowledge (validate) the existence of archery in the world. Same with happiness, we know it exists… but in general.
We acknowledge (validate) the existence of happiness in the world. But to acknowledge it, is not the same as to feel it. How do we feel it, if we don’t know much about it?
Related to archery, we could ask ourselves “How can I shoot every day from a bow?". Because not many of us know much about archery, we don’t know how to practice it, do we?
Same with happiness, we can ask ourselves “How can I be happy every day?". Let’s suppose we don’t know how to shoot with the bow and let’s also suppose that we don’t know how to be happy. What do we do next?
Among other insights, which I wanted to reveal through this parallel archery/happiness, I also wanted to prove that you cannot take happiness for granted.
Nobody was born with the archery knowledge.
Nobody was born a fully prepared adult which perfectly knows the happiness knowledge. We were all children.
Nobody knew from birth how to shoot with a bow. Nobody knew from birth how to persevere with his efforts, in feeling daily happiness.
Also, nobody can shoot with a bow in your place and then make you feel like you have shoot with the bow.
Nobody can be happy for you and then make you feel that you were happy in your life. Either you shoot with the bow or you don’t.
You just see other people doing it.
Either you initiate the happiness process and feel it or you don’t, you just see other people doing it.
Of course, archery and happiness are two different knowledge that they represent. You might think that archery is easier to learn than happiness.
But in my opinion, you have much more chances of practicing happiness in your life than archery.
There are more people practicing happiness in the world than people who practice archery. Eventually, each of us feel happiness in their life and not many of us will ever shoot with a bow in their life.
Happiness is at everyone close grasp. Take it and be happy!
“Ever since happiness heard your name, it has been running through the streets trying to find you" – Hafiz

“You don’t need to justify your love, you don’t need to explain your love, you just need to practice your love. Practice creates the master." – Miguel Ruiz
This book contains positive affirmations that make you feel happy. I recommend you to read throughout the chapters, taking each sentence, one by one. The sentences are arranged in a certain serene flow but can also be read separately.
The writing of this book has begun with my daily writings. I had some blissful, full of love, mesmerizing days when I just felt that I want to connect my own being with positive, high and strong words. Then connect myself with everything around me, connect my consciousness with the reality outside me. In this state I began to write this book.
