Every day we are seeing or hearing about people in the news experiencing unprecedented hardships. Many of us are experiencing an abundance of our own problems. In fact, there are moments when we can become so discouraged or confused that we don’t even know today if we are coming or going. Due to so much misinformation and our being prisoners of erroneous beliefs has made it nearly impossible to stay positive, optimistic or have faith that things will be great in the near future.
Blaming and excuses is a recipe that losers use to fail, but the truth is that it is our own ignorance or basic misunderstanding of the way of Life works that is the fundamental cause and reason for most of our unconsciously-self-imposed suffering. For example, those of us who complain are not aware of the universal law that says “The more we complain, the more we shall be given to complain about and that the more we become grateful, the more we shall be given to be grateful for.”
Another example is whenever we say “I need money,” the friendly universe by its own law must always say “Yes” to whatever we are affirming which is what is causing our need for money. This is because whenever we say “I need money,” our soul or subconscious is hearing us say “I lack money” and whenever we plant the seeds of lack within the soil of our Souls then the universe has no choice but to obey its own law of “As ye sow so shall ye reap” and provide us with an abundant amount of lack.
When we say things like “Those people make me sick,” it’s not those people making you sick, it is your thoughts about those people that’s making you sick. When we say “I hate people who lie to me,” then the universe must continue sending people to you who lie to you. Why? So that you can hate them! This must happen whenever we plant the seeds of hate within the soil of our souls.
The way life really works does not need to be believed, liked or enjoyed. The rules governing life does not seek our approval or permission to operate as it does.
Our life is simply a gift we get to enjoy and not a problem needing to be solved. To be upset over what we think we lack only wastes what we have. If we make the best of what we have then what we have will always get better.
