HAPPINESS IS . . .

I happened on two passages today that were so simple and powerful, I must share them with all of you who may stop by:

The first is from a tiny book in the Old Testament of The Bible. Have you ever read Haggai ? It is only 2 short chapters long. Easy to overlook. Haggai was among the few thousand Jews who returned to their land after some seventy years in captivity in Babylon. God gave him the mission of getting these people going to rebuild The Temple, which had been destroyed by the Babylonians. And then God told Haggai to say to the people these words that ring down throughout the history of the world;

“I am with you.”
Haggai 1:13 The Message//Remix

Later on, I came upon this passage:

Communication with God is life. Nothing without it is at all. The only part of your mind that has reality is the part that links you still with God. . . . Listen to the Holy Spirit and to God through Him. He speaks of you to you. . . .
A Course In Miracles, Chapter 14

Meditate on this, and feel the peace, the happiness.
