Removing the Barriers to Happiness

The theme for 2019 on Tania’s Textbook is “New Beginnings”.

We believe that the Year 2019 is the Year in which dreams will come true. Sometimes there are circumstances or structures that stand in the way of your happiness or your dreams.

These might be unconscious patterns of behaviour, like a drug dependency or a behavioural manifestation, that may have initiated to bring you happiness but now acts as a barrier to it. It may be your own fear that stands between you and your desired outcome. It may even be the source of happiness that needs redefining. Each week we will look at overcoming the obstacles to true happiness.

We have already looked at “Finding yourself in a Crisis” because sometimes you will unconsciously create for yourself circumstances or situations that will limit or draw you a long way backward in energy and from your desired outcome- your happy destination. Often the place you need to be to achieve true happiness is at variance with where you actually are, and you need momentum to get there. A bit like the long jumper who does a short run before he jumps so as to jump farther. If you can think of it like a ‘sling shot’- where you draw the band backward to gain momentum to shoot the stone forward. The more you draw the band back, the farther you send the stone. Let’s say the band is your life situation and you are “the stone”.

So each week we will work toward “your New Beginning” and achieving “your Dream”.

Our ancestors have constantly alluded to the idea of happiness being found within us. Happiness is indeed an inside job and an internal affair. Over the next few weeks we will draw on examples that will help to connect you with your inner aliveness. As I discuss in my book, “The Spiritual Dimension”, the more you experience this dimension in you- the more you won’t worry about trying to change other people. Instead if you concentrate your energy and effort in changing yourself then you will find that your world will also change for the better.

Tania’s Textbook is also about changing the way you look at things which will ultimately change your reality.

This year we will move big stones
