Happiness at any cost efforts lead us to focus on our desires and needs. This means that we will have to take it from someone else. If we are a lover of God, we focus on pleasing him. This means we get our pleasure from satisfying God not our-self. As a result we get our rewards now and mostly in the future as our eternal love fest. We are then freed to have peace in our life and how it is progressing. We can then also focus on being totally committed to our Godly love affair; instead of having weak commitments.
With all the benefits we covered, you would guess that there is something you have to pay. Yes, you have to change your attitude from things that satisfy your desires and are you oriented to an attitude of pleasing others. Love, is focusing on the other party in the love affair and is in direct opposition to such attitudes as Pride and personal independence. You still need to offer the best person you can be to the other party. But it is to please them, not yourself. This attitude is called poor in spirit. To achieve this you need to avoid the Power attitude.
