When we get there, it’s a let down

When the thing we so crave, desire and fight for happens, then there is often emptiness, nothing, a letdown. All that negative energy we have used to get to it.

The more we fixate our minds on things, especially material things or superficial ones, the more pain and suffering it brings us to get things that we didn’t need and bring us no joy. We simply move onto more pain to get the next thing, hoping that may bring us joy.

It is a repeating process driven by our falsely mind-created self-image, we crave things to fit our made-up story of who we are and think it brings us happiness as it goes with the role we are playing out in our head.

Who we really are is beyond the mind, and does not need anything to bring joy, as deep in our soul there is peace, calm, love and joy always. We are untouchable from the fantasy world that our mind inhabits. The world that most see as normal life!

Just be grateful for all that you have, use your inner energy to be at peace and to go with the flow of each unfolding moment, the universe will bring us what our soul needs and there will be only calm and no suffering, no negative energy fighting for things that are not needed.

From nothing, comes everything.

‘From nothing, comes everything’ wrote one of my favourite people, James Altucher, today in his daily email.

He’s so 100% right, and conversely, from having everything comes nothing.

When we have everything, we are not satisfied, or happy, or content.

We could choose to be, but we are not, it is a lifetime of conditioning to always want something we do not have, always want more, even though we have all that we will need and much more than we will ever need to be fulfilled.

When we have nothing, when there is no food, nowhere to live, we’ve lost everything, then even the smallest improvement in that situation feels like you’ve won the lottery.

If we focused on the process, the journey instead of the outcome, instead of the rewards, then we would relax and learn to enjoy each step of the way, learn to appreciate so much more, and stop sweating about what we do not have.

Some of the happiest, joy-filled and most truly generous people I have met in my life are the ones with the least. When you have nothing, when you do not constantly desire what you do not have, when you accept and are grateful for what you have, then everything that truly matters comes to us.

Life is not about accumulating material wealth, it is about leaving a legacy and accumulating memories for moments we spend with the people that matter, achieving our purpose and making a difference.
