However we all do this from time to time, and we all experience times when we have given or taken oxygen.

There are times when our flame becomes so shallow that we need other people’s oxygen for a while in order to survive. Just as long as that person does not become dependent on that oxygen- oxygen sharing is fine.

And along with keeping the flame burning- whether or not someone tries to blow out or enhance a flame- they must stay neutral to it- they must not rely on this as oxygen.

For once it is gone- how will their flame be able to burn? They will be constantly looking for other people to be their oxygen, sucking out oxygen from this flame or that flame, which is unhealthy for both fires.

By taking oxygen from another flame, that flame cannot burn as brightly because they are molding their flame to help another flame grow larger.

Happiness is not based off of a situation, person or environment- it is based off of a state of being.

A state of optimistic reliance on oneself. A realization of overwhelming power of their own mind to create their life as they please.

When a person is in this state of happiness, this state of control, it does not matter where they are or who they are with or the situation that arises because these factors do not influence their happiness.

Instead of wasting their energy on finding happiness form the outside, they live passionately for themselves. Participating in grueling tasks or hard situations because they have the weapon of happiness. Or they live a hedonistic lifestyle because that is what they choose.

This state of being

This state of happiness

But what makes this state of happiness?

When a person lets go of all worry, all fears and is filled with the confidence in ones own ability. Letting go of the need of acceptance from others. Letting go of worries of failure. Realizing that in whatever situation, whatever people they are around, whatever environment they are in they hold the knowledge that they can control their reaction and the outcome of their life.

The only thing that is holding you back from becoming you is you! No one else!!

It is in the belief that I can overcome. Life is to be enjoyed.

This state of happiness is not based on an item but rather a collection of characteristics a person acquires and strengthens throughout their life.

1. A belief in oneself. When they have to encounter a troublesome obstacle or person or environment they have the belief in their self that they will overcome this trouble

2. Lack of need for other people– therefore letting go of fear of rejection and living their own life as they please for their own means, rather than the means of impressing others. They dance with their eyes closed to critical people, tuned into their own music and enjoying life?

3. Its in being thankful for every situation that arise, for the small joys in life. To be thankful is to be able to realize how much you have. Having that curiosity and joy for what has come and what is to come and thanking your lucky stars the whole way for what the higher being has given you.

4, You must treat yourself as a temple for not everything is gained merely by thoughts. As strong as the mind is. This means eating right- exercising- living hygienically. Taking care of the temple in which your mind rests.
