What is Authentic Happiness?
by Dhorea Delain
Here we are on the crest of a new year when many people look into their
own futures with optimism and hope. In many cases, we look forward to
a future of happiness. Yet, we are often confronted by the problem of
not being able to achieve authentic happiness from fleeting emotion.
Most importantly, we often don’t even know what the keys to happiness
in our own lives are.
The knowledge of the basic Spiritual Principle taught in the Kabalarian
Philosophy is the true key to authentic happiness. This is because the
understanding of the Spiritual Principle leads to the understanding
of the pattern of growth and that authentic happiness is a state of
being constantly achieved over time and through personal progress. Stated
in another way, authentic happiness is a state of mind which can be
created only when mind is in harmony with its own inner source of Consciousness
and is expressing its spiritual purpose.
All of life unfolds in a definite pattern: spring, summer, autumn,
and winter follow a natural law of unfoldment. A seed placed in the
ground with proper nourishment, sunlight, and water unfolds its reason
for being through various stages of growth until its fruition time
when the new seeds drop to the ground to continue the cycle of growth.
You never see a plant bearing fruit before the bud and blossom time.
These examples indicate that nature automatically
allows a pattern of growth to unfold through time. Following these
natural patterns and fulfilling purpose leads to authentic happiness.
Man too is born into time and has the opportunity to fulfil a specific
purpose, if he understands his potential role which is created with
the first breath of life. We measure time through the revolution of
the earth around the sun, charting the individual hours in a day, and
then we designate schedules and habits, etc. It takes time for the physical
body to grow into adolescence and, finally, maturity. If the physical
body is protected, well-fed, given a proper environment and a balance
mind, it grows naturally and experiences authentic happiness.
However, man is different from other species for he must learn to understand
what creates his thinking, his experiences in life, and how to direct
his mind along a constructive outlet. It is impossible for man to simply
exist instinctively and live authentic happiness. Physical growth and
mental growth represent two different laws of life by which we must
abide. Mind is a law unto itself and can be understood only through
a complete knowledge of the basic Mathematical Principle.
Everything in life is measureable and can be understood through mathematics.
It is an immutable law and infallible principle, and in order to have
logic and reason one must rely upon this principle, as has been proven
by science. The relationship of mathematics to language must be understood
in order to create balance and harmony and happiness in mind. Man does
not speak in mathematical formula, but he uses language in order to
express himself and think.
The first breath of life awakens and motivates the physical body.
But a child requires a name in order to become individualized and
bring into being laws of conscious expression of mind. Language is
the keyboard of intelligence; it is the link to thought and mind,
for it is the only way man can create, analyze, weigh, measure, or
destroy, or constructively create his life. It is a sacred responsibility
to name and individual, for name is the channel
through which one’s mind is developed.
Is it not true that often within one family every child is completely
individual in his nature? Ideals, desires and personal characteristic
can be so different that it is an unsolvable problem as to how to reach
each child or give the understanding required. This is where unhappiness,
distortion of mind, and unnatural conditions occur, and is the basic
reason for the misunderstanding between people. Therefore, when such
misunderstandings create the foundation of mind, how can one look to
his future and know definitely that he will find authentic happiness,
success and fulfilment that should rightfully be his?
Each year should mark a period of growth wherein a foundation is created
for the next. As man learns to work in harmony with time, he will then
be able to designate exactly what he should be creating in his life
and look forward to each year with the thought of accomplishment, and
thus reap the rewards according to the efforts put forth at the proper
Nature represents balance and harmony and this state must exist in
man’s affairs also. He must understand his
spiritual and inner purpose, created at birth, and express his
potential through his thinking, or mind, which
is created by the name. Therefore, one requires a balanced perspective.
Man then has the opportunity to give expression to his own source
of Consciousness. It is not natural to be sick or to suffer, but it
occurs when one’s mind is unbalanced, lacks the knowledge of
basic truths and is not experiencing authentic happiness.
Life is very short and there is so much to be accomplished that it behoves
each one of us to put forth the effort to think beyond oneself and one’s
own desires. As noted above, authentic happiness is a state of mind
which can be created only when mind is in harmony with its own inner
source of Consciousness and is expressing its spiritual purpose. This
comes through self-discipline and the sincere intent of giving to one’s
fellow man through love and wisdom. There is no greater power than giving
universally, for it releases an uplifting and positive quality that
can be likened unto the rays of the sun giving light and life to the
If you want to change your pattern of thinking and have greater control
over your life, you must seek into the basic Spiritual Principle. In
its teachings you will find a wealth of knowledge that, if applied,
will bring untold happiness.
Do not miss this opportunity to learn how your name has created your
life. A personal Name Report is a comprehensive
document describing your personality, desires, experiences in life,
the high and low points of your nature and your potential capabilities.
It is a major key toward authentic happiness.
Make next year a memorable one—one of knowing instead of wondering
why circumstances occur in your life.
