When I feel Great and Things are Great…

I feel great and things are great – I feel a lot of joy, which does not need a trigger from something outside of myself, but naturally resides within, and shows itself through laughter, joking, self-made-up dance moves and songs and having fun.

I am in a very loving and supportive relationship with my partner, deepening every day, and I live in a wonderful house in a quiet neighbourhood which is big enough so I can have my own practice at home. I feel great and things are great.

I have money to buy food that supports my body, I have clothes to wear, I am healthy and I feel vital. I don’t need coffee or sugar to get me through the day and I feel great that I can have a great time with people without drinking alcohol. I love spending time with myself and I can celebrate birthdays without the need to eat a cake.

I feel great and things are great – I don’t have kids of my own, but I feel a parent to many others, and we have great sleepovers in our house with the kids of close friends. I have a big loving and supportive group of people around me, a great bathtub to lie in, neighbours that will help me if needed and the tram stop which takes me into the city is just around the corner.

I love working, whether it is in a café/restaurant serving coffee or now starting up my own business. Things are great and I am learning everyday something new about life and myself; I love going to bed when my body feels tired (also on a Friday night) and I don’t need social events to fulfill my life. I love watching the series ‘Modern Family’ because it makes me laugh and I love the fact that I am not perfect.

I love people, young and old; I love to hang out with them and I love to ‘whatsapp’ my friends.

I go swimming every week and I love how sexy I look with my goggles and bath cap on. I can still get excited, hold back, feel anxious, get irritated or go into reaction about something, but that’s ok, I just nominate it and move on. So yes, life is great, I feel great and things are great. So what’s the issue, one could ask?

Well, the issue is, there isn’t any.

And that’s the issue.

It seems to me that when I feel great and when things are great in life, or even amazing, I have the tendency to look for something that is not going well, that needs change or adjusting, or that might be or become an issue in the near future. I make things and myself less amazing. In other words, my mind LOVES creating issues. It’s almost like I cannot accept that things are great and that life indeed is great and most of all, that I am feeling great. No, wait, that I AM GREAT. Ok, let’s not hold back here Mariette (and create an issue), that I AM AMAZING.

The only thing that really helps me in not creating issues, is being present and in my body. And this is an ongoing process. The more present and in my body I am, the more I can accept myself and others. The more present and in my body I am, the more I can be of true service to the world. And with presence, there are no issues… so I stop worrying about the small stuff and focus on the big… and when my mind kicks in and tries to ‘issue’ me around, I just go back to my fingertips which helps me to feel my tenderness, I go back to my feet which helps me to come back to my body and I observe my breath, gently in and out.

Quite simple, but then, why shouldn’t life be… simple… when I feel great and things are great.

Deeply inspired by the work of Serge Benhayon, Universal Medicine and all the people around me.

    1. Great point Harry. I am great, but…. – hmm I know that one oh so well. The but is the individualisation. It is the issue. We don’t need issues when we let go of needing to be someone and instead just be who we naturally already are.

  1. Very true Marietta. That creation of issues is a huge self-destructor, as when we see things with simplicity and as they truly are, we can deal with them with ease.

  2. Before Universal Medicine my life went from one emotional drama to the next. After Universal Medicine is a constant development of self love and understanding, and the dramas are pretty much a thing of the past.

  3. When my mind kicks in I am gone, the quality I bring is disappeared and life gets serious and then it is very easy to create issues. Actually life is about the quality I bring in every moment and is not about the past or future. This is not yet something I have mastered but I know it in my body as an absolute truth.

    1. ‘When my mind kicks in I am gone’ – yes I hear you Annelies. Coupled with the tension in my body it is a sure sign that I have disconnected from me and am being driven by my mind. This is why I cherish my developing relationship with my body, as more and more I appreciate the truth is offers me of how simple, natural and joyful it feels when I choose the be me, to be love.

  4. Concious presence as a way to stop ourselves creating issues, or having doubts or anything like that – I love it. I agree feeling strong and steady and present in our bodies enables us to handle life so much better.

  5. It is so true Mariette. There is nothing greater than being in connection with ourselves. As with this connection wherever it is that we may turn or go, we are with the greatness and fullness of our presence through which we meet life with the joy of who we are.

  6. When I allow myself to be present and feel the grandness of the All, my issues disappear – not because they are small and insignificant compared to the bigger picture we belong to, but because the issues are the end products of the lies I have chosen to live and they have no place in the Truth and cannot stick.

    1. I concur Fumiyo, the truth will always bring a revelation that can serve us, which allows us to serve to a deeper level and I feel this is simply the grandness we innately have within when we so choose.

  7. Sometimes it is so common to have disorder or disharmony in our life that when that isn’t there and life is harmonious or joyful, there is an unease… like there is a comfort in what we know and live even when it’s unpleasant. I love that you have exposed this and also shown that we can learn to find settlement with things going well through being more present and accepting. Great advice.

  8. If we appreciated more what we have we would not constantly look for more and would be able to see more clearly where true change and what is needed. Thank you Mariette for this letter of appreciation.

  9. I love this blog – it portrays in such a fun and light-hearted way the self-imposed complications we create when life is humming along beautifully and we let even just a pinch of doubt to creep in.

  10. From a young age we are encouraged to look outside of ourselves to seek fulfilment, for we have come to exist in a way where we believe that who we are is not enough. For when we truly embrace who we are within we realise that we already are it ALL, our greatness is magnificent. Through this connection to our essence, to our Soul we move in a way that reflects our presence in all we do, as such every moment offers the opportunity to evolve, deepen our connection to love, and be more of the greatness we are.

  11. Our bodies and our hearts just LOVE simplicity… the mind however, does rather like things to be complicated… the more so the better, because then there is much less possibility of actually feeling what is going on.

  12. AMAZING! I love everything about this and I can relate so much. this need to have to have something wrong, to have an issue just so we don’t have to feel just how great we really are, and more importantly we get to avoid any jealousy that might be coming our way from others when we create issues for ourselves.

  13. A very beautiful blog Mariette, thank you for sharing this.. this is very powerfull insight that you share by your living words. Hence. We are so used to feel not good about ourselves and often if we feel great we tempt to hide it just incase someone else sees it.. A very interesting discovery that only nature will reveal to us. But always in a dose that we can truly handle. Never too much, never less.

  14. How often do we feel guilty for feeling good or try to sabotage feeling good because it is less familiar than having an issue? Thank you for making me smile through your blog and inspiring me to keep deepening my relationship with me and the way I live every day.

  15. I have found that complication leads to drama, and the more I have come to know myself from within, the simpler life has become, it is steady, drama free and feels great.

  16. My feeling of happiness used to be very conditional. I had to have things and people be in certain ways for me to feel good. It is very liberating to be able to feel great without any of that. Yet, there are times that I don’t feel great, and I have learnt that that simply means I am disconnected, and I have a very simple choice to reconnect back to my inner-most.
