There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way. State your intention to live a happy, contented life; place it squarely in the most prominent place within your imagination, and live from that place as if it were your reality. When circumstances and/or your five senses try to influence you that you’re wrong, gently and with loving confidence let the fearful or nay saying thoughts drift by like passing clouds as you focus on your nourishing imagination, which cannot be altered without your agreement. Neville speaks without hesitation on this matter: “The promise is definite that if you are shameless in your impudence in assuming that you already have that which your senses deny, it shall be given unto you—your desire shall be attained.”
Don’t be dismayed when you encounter people and circumstances that attempt to convince you the I am happy assertion that you’ve placed in your imagination is absurd. Don’t let these objective attempts influence you to assume the feeling of a wish for unhappiness to be fulfilled! Persist in stating your inner mantras of I am happy and I am content while assuming the feeling in your body of this already fulfilled—or as Neville stated, be “shameless in your impudence” in assuming the feeling of happy contentment.
This means that you permit only your personal subjective attention to align with your inner I am declaration. Your subconscious mind understands who you intend to be, and you will naturally discontinue inviting or entertaining any form of “I have a right to be miserable,” “How could I ever be happy with the circumstances that define my life?” “My parent, spouse, sister [any external relationship] make me unhappy,” and so on. How is it ever possible for God to say, “I am miserable” or “I am unhappy”? Remember, you have a highest self, and it is one with God. Be dedicated to your own subjective attention— always reminding it and yourself that I am the harmonious and governing presence. You will activate the power of God because you are at one with your all-creating Source.
Whether it’s your health, wealth, happiness, or any other element of your entire life experience, it is essential to keep in mind the importance of the movement of your attention. You must be obstinate and persistent in not allowing the viewpoints or information of others to alter your inner world. You know what you wish to become and what you would like to manifest for yourself. Now keep your imagination so aligned and feel it in your body. Using your subjective attention will produce the desired conditions.
