Hello to all,
What a wonderful place this is! Filled to the brim with wisdom, knowledge, practical tips and what not! And the most important thing: people ready and willing to assist! that in and of itself is a treasure... For quiet a few months I've been reading answers in IQ to questions similar to mine. I have never attempted to answer one though because in my mind I came here to learn and not to teach. Besides I don't consider myself as articulate as many of the good people in here; I do not have a talent in accurately expressing what I think, I guess.
Anyhow, the reason for my first (very simple) question here is the pondering about something that - to me - seems be the foundation of a better life in general: feeling good! Now here is my question: How can one go through life feeling better or even happy without having that feeling being dependant on the world around them, the circumstances, the people, the things?
The answer to my question lies within me, that I know. It surfaces sometimes in the form of a feeling and then goes away again as quickly as it came. Other times it comes in the form of a half-sentence thought that fades before it gets whole! That's why I decided to ask it here. Would you pour some wisdom my way?
Thank you in advance,
P.S. Please excuse any language mistakes, English is not my mother language.

verily verily i tell you if the children would accept the truth for what it is from one opposite to the other they would not be stuck in their own darkness and do what they hate,what they hate is the same thing that other people do and propagate the darkness around them,so learn from the truth with a spirit of truth,peace,love,understanding,discernement and mercy. why do you do what you hate?if you judge you will be judge to the same mesure,if you live by the sword you will die by the sword,if you do evil and wicked things to other they will be done to you because they do the same.you have free will would you not like to experiance and enjoy this life with out being stuck in darkness? it all start with you find the living one that you are then you can see the living one that are around you each to their own level on the way of truth and life.so let there be light,be the light that you can be,experience and enjoy.

That form of feeling that surfaces indicates you are heading in the right direction, you have set things in motion and you will only progress from there, this is because your higher self lives in a constant state of joy and non-judgment, and H.S. knows you've consciously made the intention to become more aligned to that state, of being if you will, by asking the above question here on the quest. Circumstances don't create us, WE create them, we are co-creators with Universal intelligence and internalizing this one simple truth will put us on the path to live a life of our own preferences, and our own design. Being happy inside should come before anything intention-wise with the practice of deliberate creation because that's all we're after anyway, stuff or no stuff, so putting inner happiness above everything else first ''allows'' more unexpected surprises [above and beyond manifestations] and builds more positive momentum. As I've mentioned in other answers on the quest, letting go and allowing can assist you tremendously when your main goal is inner joy [happiness] despite the unwanted circumstances, this is because as you practice the art of letting go and allowing you are letting go of attachments as well as addictions, addictions such as negative thinking, telling those same old stories, thus creating those unwanted circumstances that keep repeating their presence in your physical reality. As with the practice of allowing, you learn to allow people and circumstances to be just as they are, with no judgments, no negative reaction, you develop a certain ''neutrality'' about everything around you in the physical reality, hence, unaffected by your environment, as the higher self already is. Being in a constant state of allowing brings all the things that you want and more, and while this occurs guess what? more inner [joy] happiness, then you begin to find yourself living in a positive cycle, resulting in positive outcomes as well as building more positive momentum, making that inner happiness your dominant focus and vibration, [energy] and law of attraction will bring everything that matches that dominant energy.

What goes on around you is a reflection of your vibration/energy. It is connected, so find reasons to be happier and appreciate and life will be happier.
We are Creators because we are made in the image and likeness of The Creator (Source/God).
As you create happier energy, it spreads.
Being happy is a decision we make at every moment of every day. We decide to be happy, despite our circumstances.
Let us say that my car breaks down. I can choose to kick the tires, or I can choose to think, "Maybe God is trying to protect me here. Maybe if I had gone out in my car today, I would have had a terrible accident."
You see, it is always about your attitude and deciding to just be happy.
It is really quite simple, but very hard to do! :)
