Genie In The Lamp

†††††How many of us at one time or another have wished that those fairy tales where true and that we could somehow find a magic lamp with a genie in it? How many of us have wished that we could have those three wishes that would change our lives? How many of us have wished that we could finally get all that money and all that stuff so that we could finally be happy? I hate to say it, but I was one of those genie wishers for a long time myself. I finally realized, however, that I didnít need a genie in a lamp because I already had an angel in my mind.

†††††That angel had always been there trying to get my attention and show me the truth about life and love, but for a long time I was too busy wishing for a genie to hear him. I was waiting to get all of that stuff so that I could finally be happy. One glorious day, though, I finally heard what my angel had been whispering all those years. "More stuff isnít going to make you happy. Being happy is going to make you happy." It was then that I realized that I wasnít just taking the long way to joy, I was also taking the wrong way to joy.

†††††We donít need a genie in a lamp to bring us joy. We donít need three magic wishes to bring us happiness. All we need to do is listen to the angel in our minds. That angel is telling us everyday just how much God loves us and wants us to be happy. That angel is telling us everyday that we can choose love, joy, and oneness with God as well. That angel is telling us everyday that we are here to do Godís will by sharing that love and joy with the world.

†††††Shove the genie back in the lamp then. God didnít bring you here to sit around waiting for your world to get better. God brought you here to make the world better yourself. Share your love, joy, talent, and energy with the world. Create your own happiness everyday with what you think, feel, and do. Listen to that angel in your mind and become an angel in your own life.
