God, being Love, is also happiness

Today was a good day internally even though as usual all sorts of things happened externally. Whenever I had spare time I repeated, “God, being Love, is also happiness.”

This made me feel happy and also made me appreciate the free time I had rather than being bored, I was doing something useful.

At the same time someone I trusted disappointed me. It was an issue of one friend I had introduced to another to do a task. They had said they could do it and when they had discovered they could not, they did not tell the other person immediately as they should have done.
It is very easy for me to forgive any one who harms me and I know that God forgives totally but I cannot forgive for someone else.

Another thing that happened today is that in the middle of the day I was vengeful (in my mind) to my brother. The anger and negative thought only remained for a few minutes, but it was there. I started beating myself up for this indiscretion. Then I stopped and given that God is love and forgiving I forgave myself and will do better next time.

I’m not saying that I’ll never be vengeful and I’ll always control myself and be loving. The issue is to do your best to be loving.

Anyway, as I kept repeating the thought for the day, the negative thoughts I had toward my brother disappeared and changed to thoughts of love and that changed my mood to one of happiness instead of regret.
