“Love infers limitless happiness in which the universe is immersed. You are living in the world, but you have closed your mind and your heart, but you have to know that God’s goods are received through the mind and the heart. How will happiness come for you if your mind and your heart are closed? Every day in your mind must shine one bright thought; every day in your heart must shine one warm feeling.
“Children have excellent and uncorrupted minds and hearts, consequently, all those people who possess uncorrupted minds and hearts are children of God. To them belongs the Kingdom of God.
“The new sits in the following: your mind and your heart must become like those of children. Then you have to start to serve God with Love.
“There is nothing impossible for God. When somebody says that he is a sinner, that means he does not love. As soon as he begins to love, he will right away become righteous. ‘But I am not a happy man.’ You are unhappy because you do not love. When you begin to love, you will be happy.’I am poor.’ You are poor because you do not love. When you begin to love, you will become a rich person. … When love comes in man, he will resurrect.” ~Beinsa Douno

The happiness of the spiritual sort happens in the soul, not the heart. While many may think of the soul as residing in or near the heart, that is only partially true. Since the soul is pure spirit, it is beyond the limits of time and space, so is not found in any particular spot in the body.
It is true that a closed mind and a closed soul cannot know happiness. A mind needs to be open to new things to experience happiness, even of a limited sort. And the soul must be awakened from its coma-like slumber before it can experience limitless happiness. So the first step in achieving limitless happiness and love is to awaken the soul. The best way to do that is to use the light of the Spiritual Sun following a process called Spiritual Sun Gazing. Continue reading “Limitless Happiness and Spiritual Wealth”
