“If you have the developed the pattern of working hard to keep those around you happy, then when they are not happy, when they are presenting anger to you, you may feel that their anger has something to do with your behavior. They often work hard to make you believe that you are the primary reason for their problem, but you have undoubtedly discovered that the more you attempt to modify your behavior to keep others happy, the more modification of your behavior they seem to require. Again, an impossible and futile endeavor.
When you demonstrate your consistent state of happiness that you are achieving by being aware of your Vortex and holding thoughts that allow your frequent entrance into it (and, even more important, you do not modify your behavior to try to soothe or solve the problems of others), you will offer them – through the power of your example – the secret to their own true happiness. Being happy is a very personal thing – and it really has nothing to do with anyone else.”
Esther and Jerry Hicks, in “Getting Into the Vortex”
