Create the effect and cause follows .

Become alert .Each moment when you are choosing to become miserable , remember : this is your choice . Even this mindfulness will help - this alertness that this is my choice and I am responsible , and this is what I am doing to myself . this is my doing .Immediately you will feel a difference .The quality of mind will have changed .It will be easier for you to move toward happiness .

And once you know that this is your choice then the whole thing has become a game .Then if you love to be miserable , be miserable , but remember this is your choice and don't complain .There is nobody else who is responsible for it .This is your drama .If you like it this way , if you like a miserable way , if you want to pass through life in misery ,then this is your choice , your game .You are playing it - play it well ! Then don't go and ask masters and gurus how to be happy .The so-called gurus exist because you are foolish .You create the misery , and then you go and ask others how to uncreate it .And you will go on creating it because you are not alert to what you are doing .
From this very moment try - try to be happy and blissful .

I will tell you one of the deepest laws of life .You may not have thought about it at all .You have heard that cause and effect is the base - the whole of science depends on it .You create the cause an the effect follows .Life is a causal link . You put the seed in the soil and it will sprout .If the cause is there then the tree will follow .The fire is there - you put your hand in it and it will burn .The cause is there and the effect will follow .You take poison and you will die .You arrange for the cause and then the effect follows .This is one the basic , the most basic scientific laws , that cause and effect is the innermost link of all the process of life .

Religion knows about a second law ,still deeper than this .But the second law which is deeper will look absurd if you don't know it and experiment with it .Religion says : Produce the effect and the cause follows .This is absolutely absurd in scientific terms .Science says :If the cause is there the effect follows .Religion says the converse is also true : you create the effect , and see - the cause follows .

There is a situation in which yo feel happy .A friend has come , a beloved has called , a situation is the cause - you feel happy .Happiness is the effect , the coming of the beloved if the cause . Religion says : Be happy and the beloved comes .Create the effect and the cause follows .And this is my own experience , that the second law is more basic than the first .I have been doing it and it has been happening .

Just be happy and the beloved come .
Just be happy and friends are there .
Just be happy and everything follows .
