On August 6th, 2004, Equinox gave this example of living happily:
Please put thy bodies in a position of relaxation. Have thy feet
firmly planted on the ground, thy backs straight. And allow all
negative energy to just leave through the bottoms of thy feet and thy
fingertips. Allow thyself to feel contented, warm and at peace.
And we would like for thee to visualize in thy mind that thee are lying
in a small sail boat in the middle of a vast, blue ocean. There
is a breeze rustling the sail. It is a wondrous breeze, and sky
is very blue, and the waters are very calm. And thee are very
content, just lying here looking at the sky and the waters. You
are laying here feeling totally at peace. All things
beauteous. Allowing the breeze to flow over thy body, listening
to the stillness, appreciating the beauty of thy ocean.
And at some point perhaps you become aware that you can see nothing but
ocean and sky going on for ever and ever. No land in sight, just
miles and miles of blue. And thee become afraid. Thee begin
to fear what happen if thee never find land again. And thy mind
begins to make the plan for finding this land. Thee become
obsessed with needing to find safety. And thee begin to make the
plan to find what thee are looking for, and all of thy focus is based
in this fear and this goal. And thee begin to sail.
And as thee sail, initially thee become more frightened, and all the
thoughts of what could be, might be and possibly are hit thee.
And thee begin to doubt, and thee begin to fear great things. And
as thee focus so totally on thy goal, thee forget who thee are.
Thee forget that there is a beauteous breeze that pleased thee so
wondrously just a bit ago. Thee forget how beautiful and calm the
water was, and how safe and happy thee felt laying here
observing. Thee forget that the sky is magnificent, and that a
moment ago all was right with the world, and instead, in a moment, all
things became wrong with thy world.
This is the way most entities on Terra live their lives. Instead
of living in the moment and its perfection, Terrans live in the future
and the fear of what could go wrong. Their minds concentrate on
the goal and the steps to make that goal manifest and they forget to
live their life in the process of meeting their goal.
Thee are wondrous creatures with fabulous powers of
manifestation. Believe that what thee want is already a fact, and
then live thy life as though that is truth! Thee are on a
beautiful ship on calm, wonderful waters, and the sky is marvelously
blue, and there is a breeze that can take thee wherever thee want to go.
Trust this truth. Manifest the wonders that are already thine and
believe in thy power and thy good. We do.
