Sometimes the greatest things that happen to us are not consciously planned nor orchestrated – like meeting a special someone, getting a great job, or being in the right place and the right time. They happen through a kind of divine timing or intervention – and are often the things that end up meaning the most to us.
Of course, there is no genie in a bottle nor fairy godmother who will give us these things at will. However, our odds of creating a life full of ‘happy coincidences’ increase when we tap into our own deepest and divine selves. It is then that we can attain what we need to be truly happy — without making jobs, relationships, money, and ‘things’ the primary focus of our lives.
This is our ‘Super You.’
‘Super You’ is our conscious or higher self, manifested through our thoughts, deeds and actions. Some say it’s the way God is expressed through us. It is present in each of us and can be seen in the kindness we give and receive from others, the lucky coincidences we experience, and the awareness and appreciation which we feel for the people, places and things that make up our lives.
Whatever you call this deeper understanding: the Universe, God, Spirit, Source, Jehovah, Father, Mother, Allah, Brahman, the Tao, or Great Spirit – its presence is engrained in everything, including you – Super You.
In Justin’s book ‘Super You’ readers will discover their connection to the Universe and all that is in it. The Super You fulfills your highest purpose for living and is your greatest source of happiness.
