Don’t worry be happy
“A course in miracles” is a self study curriculum to help bring about spiritual transformation.One of the assignments in the course in miracles is to be aware that God is speaking to us all the time. The assignment requires that we be as aware as we can that God is everything and since God is everything no matter what we are observing or what is happening God is speaking to us through it. The voice of Spirit is often obscured by our interpretation of the circumstances life presents us with. If the circumstance seems too negative or too threatening our ego takes over and it tries to run the show in spite of the fact that it’s solutions typically don’t solve any problems and often make them worse. The ego speaks in a loud voice that we can’t help but hear while Spirit whispers which requires us to be deliberate about our awareness of its presence/presents. So Spirit is constantly trying to whisper above the noise of our egos interpretation of circumstances. If according to quantum physics everything is connected to every other thing and The Universe is holographic in the nature which means that every bit of The Universe has the imprint of the whole, nothing can be 100% negative. There must be a “Silverlining” somewhere within any circumstance. That is how Spirit has rigged the game of life in our favor. Sometimes the Silverlinings are obvious other times they’re buried deep but it is our job to find them. Finding a silverlining can also help to shine light on the part of the circumstance that appears to be dark. Another benefit of taking this position is that the universe only answers in the affirmative. So it’s going to send back circumstances that match the kind of energy that is being sent out. So finding what’s positive about any situation causes us to send out energy that is more positive so the corresponding echo from the universe creates more positive results.
I was an instructor in a personal growth course called Journeys. We often had students that brought up circumstances they considered burdensome. We would ask them “what is positive about that?” Some students would find a silverlining others would respond “there is nothing positive about this situation.” So we would suggest that they just make something up. Here is why I think that works. We are a part of an infinite field of possibility. Since the possibilities are infinite it doesn’t matter how absurd a thought is it must resonate with some possibility. Also if there are infinite number of alternate universes any thought or visualization must resonate with some alternate universe that contains that possibility.
Making up a positive interpretation of any circumstance could at least accomplish one thing; to put a person in a better feeling state so that what they’re putting out to The Universe results in a more positive echo of circumstances. So “Don’t worry be happy” is not only a great song lyric it is also a metaphysical principal that can help us attract more positive results. So let’s make Don’t worry be happy a part of our spiritual practice.
