You might be asking, "Well, which causes which? Does hearing happy singing cause the good mood or does the good mood cause us to open our ears to the singing?" Let's not worry about that too much right now. You may have some ideas about it. It's something that is interesting to wonder about and see what rings true for you.
Theses days, the important thing for me is to simply realize (become very aware of, remember) my deep desire to live in the singing colorful world as much as possible. Sometimes there are sad things of course. And it's good to feel the emotions. But all things pass, good and not-so-good feelings. We are always moving forward and things are constantly unfolding. What I have found is that moving into happiness more often & more quickly sounds like a pretty fun idea!
Happiness is Just a Thought Away
What about those times when it's hard to find that happy thought? Well, it's there - there's always something you love that you can think about. It may just take longer to remember it at times. Don't give up! Keep "trying" new ideas!
What kinds of things make you happy to think about or imagine? I'd love to hear!
Here, I am learning to walk outside and see the world in a colorful song. My friend wrote a poem about it once.
Wind Blown, how they have grown
out of cold and dry and lifeless stone
into creatures wild and free and unknown!
Casting aside all doubt and fear,
it dissolves into the atmosphere.
Walk outside as if for the first time
And see the world in a colorful rhyme.
