A Passion of Happiness

I am so grateful for my passion toward happiness.

Everyone I know is so grateful for their passion toward happiness.

Everyone I don’t even know all over the planet is grateful for their passion toward happiness.


My tendency is toward happiness.

It didn’t used to be.

But I have discovered the difference between letting things happen to me and choosing what happens to me.

Whatever feels the most familiar is what we tend to fulfill, over and over again.

It may be good or bad.

When we realize there are ways we can take control of our feelings and actions, then we can move in the direction of our passion for happiness.

This is a gentle happiness, which I am learning to sustain all the time.

It is not dependent on outward circumstances.

It is a quiet, strong, ultra-presence within.

It is a constancy.

It is a silver pool in which I am immersed.

My passion for happiness envelopes me in creativity.

It gathers my materials together.

It sits me down at the sewing machine or sketchbook.

It gives me the imperative, “Go, go, go!”

I am in absoute ecstasy.

What we create out of our passion of happiness has such a deep power that when others see it, they feel it, too.

That is how the artist communicates.

The feeling of the work captures those who are ready for its message.
