pursuit of happiness

Like you, I have no idea what’s really going on.

Probably also like you, I’ve been feeling literally stressed out of my skull for days, weeks and months – and yesterday, I decided that whatever else is going on, I can’t carry on like this.

That decision actually crystallised when I met someone in the local mall who six months ago was apparently about to die from ‘terminal cancer’.

I hadn’t heard from her for a while, so I assumed the worst.

Then yesterday, I bumped into her, and she looked really happy.

Her divorce from a really yucky person had come through; she’d managed to scrape together the money to buy her apartment; and her daughter had dumped her long-term loser boyfriend and was now engaged to a much better man.

And how is your health?

That’s what I wanted to ask, but it wasn’t polite. But she must have figured that out anyway, because she said to me:

I decided to just forget about all that other stuff and get on with my life. I’m late for my yoga class, but if you can come to the wedding, I’d love to see you….

She rushed off.

And I stood there trying to absorb the very important lesson Hashem was teaching me:

Happiness solves all problems.

There is for sure a narrow bridge to tread, between ‘fake-always-happy-keep-my-head-in-the-sand-and-avoid-reality’, and falling into a doom-and-gloom mindset, because the world can be just so heavy sometimes.

But at least in my part of it, the sun is now shining.

There is still good food to eat.

I have lights on, clean clothes, good music to listen to.

B’kitzur, life is actually really good at the moment.

Meanwhile, the craziness goes on outside the windows.

If you read stuff like THIS, it seems obvious that the only economies the sanctions against Russia are really going to tank is those of the USA and Europe.

When World Economic Forum puppet-Zelensky starts mouthing scripted stuff “from his bunker” about how the whole world needs to ditch fossil fuels and go green – that’s when you know we are being set up for another stage of the Swiss Templar’s ‘Great Reset’ plan.

You know, all those food shortages, and fuel shortages, and terrible economic conditions that were meant to come along with the Covid 19 plandemic, but which didn’t quite materialise, because everything got ‘sweetened’ behind the scenes.

The bad people didn’t go away, and are continuing to do bad things.

But at least in my world, I am realising that acknowledging that reality can go hand-in-hand with still enjoying my own reality, and still being grateful to Hashem for all the tremendous blessings He’s continuing to give me.

And in the meantime, I will spend my hour a day ‘stomping on the bad’, praying that it goes away, asking God to rid the world of all this evil.

And I will try to do at least one tikkun haklali a day, to help ‘sweeten’ things.

And I will continue to pay pidyonot over to Shuvu Banim, whenever things start to get too much for me, in my own little world, so my reality at least can be ‘sweetened’ again.

And then – I need to focus on being happy.

Part of the way the oh-so-corrupt media takes us ‘away’ from ourselves, and from God, and from what really matters, is by continually getting us to focus on things that don’t matter, and / or are not in our control at all.

Before ‘the war in Ukraine’ was made everyone’s problem, I was actually doing a lot of research into stuff that can apparently cure cancer and AIDS very easily and cheaply.

(Yes, apparently AIDS is not infectious, and can be cured. Read THIS, for more on what was really causing the first ‘wave’ of what came to be known as AIDS in the gay community.)

Snippet:

More poppers, more AIDS

Given the ongoing fall-out from all the experimental gene therapy ‘Covid 19’ shots, that is where I want to return my research focus now.

On that, and on things that will help to ‘boost our immune system’ by pumping up our real world emuna.

Of course, I’m going to get sidetracked by other things, and of course, sometimes I will still write about ‘Ukraine’ – especially if it’s relevant to me in Israel, when they start flooding the country with non-Jewish neo-Nazis as part of their ongoing attempts to attack, terrify and even murder Jews in Eretz Yisrael.

Once a good (Swiss Templar) Jew-killing crusader, always a good (Swiss Templar) Jew-killing crusader.

The point is not to ignore the ‘bad’.

But the point is to focus on the ‘good’.

And there is still so much of that around, for each of us, however difficult some areas of life may currently be.

It’s all just a test, to bring us closer to Hashem and break our yetzer haras, that keep us so stubborn, selfish and arrogant.

====

So, the rest of today I’m going back to my Pesach cleaning, and my hobbies, and putting some effort into making a nice supper for my family.

In short: I’m focussing on the many, many good things in my life, and I’m going to remember that God is so good to me, and that all we really have is today.

Because really, we don’t have to ‘pursue’ happiness. We just have to open our eyes to the millions of presents God is giving us right now, without any additional effort required.

Trouble is bad enough when it actually comes. I don’t need to be craning my neck right now trying to spot it way off in the distance.
