This is the time when God comes and gives us the power to become elevated. Now that we have the opportunity to receive power from Him, we have to take it. It is not that we will automatically become elevated by ourselves; no. How will we become like that? God’s elevated direction is “remember Me and remain pure.” Keep this simple understanding clearly in the intellect and let it guide us in the pursuit of constant happiness.
You do not think that all of this is just imagination, do you? Why should you think that constant happiness is imagination? You see the world of sorrow, don’t you? This is not imagination. It is practical.
So, surely, happiness must also be practical. Happiness is not constant now, but it should become that. It is not that this is always a world of sorrow. There is both happiness and sorrow in this world. However, there is a time period when there is constant happiness. The happiness in which we are always happy is a completely different experience. So why do people think that constant happiness is imagination? Perhaps because it does not exist now. However, you do understand with your reasoning and with the power of wisdom that, since there is a time of sorrow, there must also surely be a time of happiness.
Some people say that we must consider there to be happiness in whatever happens. That it doesn’t matter whether you have any disease, if there is untimely death, if any adverse situation arises — just consider yourself to be happy. That is happiness of your imagination! That cannot be said to be practical. Just as sorrow is experienced in a practical way, in the same way, happiness should also be experienced in a practical way.
The foundation of having happiness in a practical way is being laid at this time. For this we have to make our actions elevated because this world is a field of actions, the land of actions. Whatever you sow in it, you will receive the fruit of that. This is a universal law. The Father says: ‘Even I cannot break this law.” This law applies to everything that has to continue. It is an absolute law and cannot be controlled by anyone’s power. The Father says: “remember Me and let your actions be good and pure for by doing this you will receive your right to happiness.” Now do everything with enlightened understanding.
Use your spiritual sense and do everything well. Everything is either spoiled or reformed through your actions.
We need to understand what to make ourselves into through our actions, and how to do that. God is giving us that understanding now; so, we have to move along according to that. We have to understand these things and let our efforts be accordingly.
It is such a simple and easy matter!
