Black Belt in Inner Peace contains short journal entries I have kept and continue to add to, as I go for a black belt in inner peace by endeavoring to move through each busy and sometimes stressful day with greater grace and ease.
Number 31: Smiling from the heart
I want to follow a thought today about God, which for me is Love with a capital ‘L’ … not love as emotion but Love as the most powerful force in the universe. So, here is my thought: God is Love and, being Love, is happiness. Nothing makes a human being happier than love and science has shown that happiness predicts success in life (not the reverse, as once believed). Therefore, it follows that marshaling this limitless power to succeed is carried on the decision to be happy … today. So, I plan to start today counting on one hand what I am most grateful for and then smiling more today from the heart. I expect to be a billionaire by five o’clock.
