I received an email recently and the quote at the bottom - as some people put .... a little phrase to brighten or enlighten....said: "The Dalai Lama says:

Life's Purpose to be Happy

That hit me like a ton of bricks. ...Why didn't someone tell me that oh soooo many years ago when I debuted on this earth? That's a terrific thing to tap for.

On a scale of 0-10 what is the intensity of your belief for this statement? __________

let's start with the karate chop point, and tap around as you are called to, moving from one point to another:

Even tho no one told me at birth it was my life's purpose to be happy, I deeply and completely love and accept myself, Even tho no one told me at birth it was my life's purpose to be happy, I deeply and completely love and accept myself. Even tho no one told me at birth it was my life's purpose to be happy, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Big GrinI forgive myself for my contribution to it, I forgive others for their contribution to it (or lack of contribution to it by not telling me about it), and I forgive the ancestors for sending down other philosophies.

Even tho no one told me at birth it was my life's purpose to be happy, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

If I had known it was my life's purpose to be happy, I would have never felt that whenever something good happened I had to compensate with something not so good to balance it out. ... so I had to "pay" for it. I didn't think we were rewarded for being happy.

If I had known it was my life's purpose to be happy, I would have known I could be happy and not feel I couldn't be happy if others weren't happy.

If I had known it was my life's purpose to be happy, I wouldn't have felt guilty if I was happy.

If I had known it was my life's purpose to be happy, I wouldn't feel guilty if I had more than others....so maybe I "made sure" I didn't have a lot more?

If I had known it was my life's purpose to be happy, I wouldn't feel guilty if I was happier than others.

If I had known it was my life's purpose to be happy, I wouldn't feel guilty and kept myself from having what I needed.

HappinessEven tho I didn't know it was my life's purpose to be happy, I deeply and completely love and accept myself. I forgive myself for living all this time thinking it was only the "pursuit of happiness" that I should strive for not the attainment of it.

------- stop tapping for a bit.

What is the definition of happiness? Each person's definition would be different, and of course the Dali Lama wasn't talking about being vain, narcissistic, grasping and selfish....he meant that inner sense of happiness.

Each emotion/state of being is governed by one major meridian. "Happy vs. Unhappy" comes under the Liver meridian; the point we tap on is the "bra line" under the breast. yet it is one component of a pattern....the primary meridian, which in this case is the Liver, the foundation of it is the Stomach meridian, it's shadow is the Small Intestine meridian and it's "lord" is Circ-sex or Pericardium meridian. The emotions for the Liver are frustration, anger, suppressed and unhappy, seeking to be independent, liberated and free and... happy. Its base, its foundation is the stomach meridian, moving from the negative emotions of undeserving, loss of identity, neglect ...to desiring to be content and fulfilled. Its shadow is the small intestine, to ascend and move out of the duality of victim/victor, predator/prey, to the attainment of "vehicle" where we aren't defined by either. "Lording over" it all is Circulation sex meridian, which is "hibitedness" * or sexual security.

That sounds like happiness, doesn't it? The definition of Happiness could be:

Liberated and free,
Content and fulfilled,
A vehicle for the universal energies above the fray of the duality,
and Sexual security.....

Everything else falls into place from that. So we can tap for these 4:

Even tho I was suppressed, oppressed and repressed, frustrated and angry instead of being happy, independent, liberated and free, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even tho I believed I didn't deserve to be happy...to have enough..., I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even tho in discriminating** between the wheat and the chaff I chose the chaff, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

Even tho I was hurt by love and protected my heart by being inhibited so I wouldn't be hurt again, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

I choose again......I choose again....I choose again....

I choose to be happy. I choose to be independent, liberated and free.

I choose to know I deserve to be happy and it's my inalienable right to be so.

I choose the wheat from the chaff and draw in positive people in to my life who are able to accept being happy, too.

Happy Road SignsTo expand this even further, we can go around the meridian wheel and address each primary emotion in relation to our life's purpose to be happy.

let's tap, starting with the karate chop point and then tapping each point for the specific meridian, or you can tap the normal sequence:

Even tho I didn't know it is my life's purpose to be happy, and I didn't act accordingly, I deeply and completely love and accept myself. Even tho this statement hit me like a ton of bricks and I realized how our world doesn't support this, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.

I forgive myself for my contribution to it. I forgive others for not surrounding me with that concept, I forgive the ancestors for not sending it down. This is merely a physical manifestation of a blocked emotional issue and I love myself faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar too much to allow it to continue one second longer.

-----

Big GrinI now know and believe it is my inalienable right to be happy. and I am happy and guilt free for the rest of my lives.

tap around on each point: "inalienable right to be happy" ...then "inalienable right to be free and happy and well"

State: It is my life's purpose to be happy:

Now on a scale from 0-10 where are you? ____

*I figure if there are words "inhibited" and "uninhibited" then there must be a word "hibit" for being in a positive place with sexuality!

** In the small intestine meridian, "discriminating" is not a bad word. The small intestine gets the food at that point and decides what is healthy and should go in to the body to nourish it, and what is is not healthy and should be eliminated. So discriminating in this instance is to choose what's healthy over what isn't.
