Chief Joseph Newsletter
Conversations with Chief Joseph & John Cali

October 13, 2009

Listen to our Chief Joseph podcasts here.

Happiness

A few weeks ago on the internet I came across an article about how
hard it is to be happy in today's world. Intrigued by the topic, I
printed it out and read it later that day.

John Cali

The author, clearly an articulate, accomplished, and spiritually aware
writer, proceeded to lay out the reasons he thought happiness was an
elusive goal for humans.

He argued that just because we think we deserve to be happy, it
doesn't mean we will be happy. He questioned our right to expect
happiness in this lifetime. And even if we achieved it, he said, it
would only be after a long and mighty struggle. Even then, he said, we
would not find peace of mind.

In a newsletter we wrote about five years ago, Chief Joseph and I were
responding to one of our readers who was essentially saying the same
thing as the article writer above. Here's part of what I said in my
part of our response:

"The reality is life is as hard or as easy, as sad or as joyful as we
want to make it. Abe Lincoln once said 'A man is about as happy as he
makes up his mind to be.' We cannot control others or the world at
large, but we are in total control of our thoughts -- and, therefore,
of the reality we create with those thoughts."

Which point of view do you prefer?

Here's Chief Joseph's point of view.

Chief Joseph

Happiness is such a seemingly elusive goal for many humans. Certainly
most of you have experienced unhappiness in your lives at one time or
another. But that does not mean unhappiness is your natural state of
being. Quite the opposite. Happiness is your natural state of being.

When you remember who you truly are, what we just said will make
perfect sense.

You are God. Period! Yes, you occupy human male and female bodies at
the moment. But you are God nonetheless, God in human form. You are,
in this state of being God, fully aligned with your higher selves.
Your higher selves are also God.

It really is that simple. Don't make it complicated or difficult.

Your world today needs a lot more humans who are fully aware of who
they are. But that's another subject for another day.

Our point here today is simply this: You are God. Every aspect of you,
human and spirit, is God.

You, as your higher selves, chose this current incarnation. Even if
you chose challenging circumstances into which to be born, you chose
it all because you intended to find joy here, to find happiness in
exercising your divine creative powers.

Your higher self, that wiser broader part of you, lives eternally in a
state of perfect happiness. You -- the human part of you -- when you
are fully aligned with your higher selves, are also happy. And it
won't matter, as John said earlier, what is happening in the world
around you. It won't matter what other people are choosing to do with
their lives.

All that matters, all that ever has or ever will matter, are the
thoughts you think, the choices you make as a result of those
thoughts.

Happiness is a choice you can freely make. Unhappiness is a choice you
can freely make. No one, nothing can compel you to be either happy or
unhappy. It's as President Lincoln said -- you are as happy as you
decide to be.

When you fully acknowledge and accept you are God, you cannot be
anything other than happy. When you know you, as God in human form,
deserve to be happy, you will be.

When you deliberately choose happiness, you will find happiness
everywhere you look. When you deliberately choose joyful thoughts most
of the time, you will be happy. You will be at peace with yourselves
and the world.


=========================================================
Since 1992, John Cali has been communicating with a non-physical
entity called Joseph. In one of his many physical lifetimes, this
spirit
was incarnated as the legendary Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce tribe
in what is now the state of Oregon in the northwestern USA. These
messages are a blend of information from Joseph, other spirits in the
"Joseph group," and John.

This certainly mirrors anybody that has had an NDE. Most do not want to come back to their earthly bodies. Some come back because they have more to learn, but always look at life and their experience here differently.

Hi buscardora. Yes, I've had several NDE's and OBE's starting from when I was 14 years old.
You will never fear anything in this lifetime after experiencing them. :)

And yes to your near death experience question.

Oh no Sky Otter...my question was directed at all of you.
I asked because I have also had an experience....I "died" twice during a surgery years ago. I don't remember any lights, a floating sensation, or a sense of peace. When I felt myself slipping away, I felt no fear of dying. Only a deep saddness that I didn't get to say goodbye to my loved ones. As micjer mentioned, I did view my life in a new way after that experience but part of me wishes I had been able to go to the "other side" for lack of a better term. I've often wondered why I did not. I guess there are still lessons for me to learn here...

It could be buscardora that it was not time back then for you to see the other side yet? But it could just as well be that you may be one that does not need that type of experience in order to become deeper in spiritual things, as you may well be just exactly where you are supposed to be at on your learning curve.

There are some that do not need those experiences to become strong and established and those people are natural in their growth curve.

Just food for thought?
