In that wonderful moving picture, "The Thief of Bagdad," we were told in letters of light that happiness must be earned!
It is earned through perfect control of the emotional nature.
There can be no happiness where there is fear, apprehension or dread. With perfect faith in God comes a feeling of security and happiness.
When man knows that there is an invincible power that protects him and all that he loves, and brings to him every righteous desire of the heart, he relaxes all nervous tension and is happy and satisfied.
He is undisturbed by adverse appearances, knowing that Infinite Intelligence is protecting his interests and utilizing every situation to bring his good to pass.
"I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in a desert."
Uneasy lies the head that wears a frown. Anger, resentment, ill-will, jealousy and revenge rob man of his happiness and bring sickness, failure and poverty in their wake.
