Why do some people have abundance and happiness and most people do not?
what is it about the human condition that we expect that much of our existence should be spent in misery and lack?
We think that it is ok for us to be broke and miserable. We expect to live our lives in loveless marriages, with dysfunctional families, under oppressive governments who terrorize us with excessive taxes, massive fees, laws, regulations, huge, brutal police forces and the excessive military spending trillions of our dollars killing innocents abroad for no reason.
We expect to be bored at work doing mindless tasks.
We expect to defer our happiness far into the future.
We think we have to wait forever or for someone else to tell us what to do.
We expect to never get what we want.
Why must this be so?
Shouldn't it be different?
I think so.
I see the first way all the time. It is everywhere and ever present.
I used to think this way.
I thought it was important to have a huge military. I thought whoever the military killed deserved it. I thought it was better for them to be dead.
I used to think everyone should just continue to go to a job they hated and tough it out for 40 or 50 or 60 years. What is the point in looking for something better, you are just going to die anyway.
I used to think that marriage was forever. If you made a mistake and married the wrong person, tough luck. You don't deserve to be happy. You made your bed now lie in it. Others have it worse.
But this is not how I think anymore and this is not how I am. Just because you see things this way does not mean you have to participate. Just because you used to think this way does not mean you have to continue it.
You can change your life in an instant just by choosing to think differently about it.
You can step outside of this mindless, insane matrix that the world at large is.
Most people in the world are trapped in an old way of thinking. They think that most people should be poor. They think that it is the government's right to take money by taxes , to pass laws, to enforce regulations, to wage wars and to tell everyone how to live.
They think that it is acceptable for some people to have a fabulous life while most of everyone else does not deserve this way of living.
They think that abundance and happiness is reserved for just a select few. This used to be the royalty and high religious types in the old days. Now it is reserved for sports stars, entertainers, business tycoons in bed with government and the politicians themselves.
But is that the right way to think about it?
Or is it just a way of seeing things that is incorrect?
Abundance and happiness can be yours also.
I think you are beginning to wake up to this as I am. I think you are beginning to see that you matter. I think more and more people are slowly waking up to possibility that they matter. You are starting to wonder why can't you do the things you want to do?
Why can't you go to the places you want to go?
Why can't you admit you made mistakes in the past and you no longer want to continue to live this way?
Why can't you have the type of life you really want?
You do not have to continue to see and do things in the old way.
You do not have to accept the old way, the mistakes you have made, the wrong ideas you were fed and the idea of this is all you can do.
If you have made a mistake about something, instead of accepting your lot in life, you just end the mistake.
If you married the wrong person or do not want to be married anymore, then leave.
If you do not like your job, find another one.
If you want to start a business, then start it.
If you do not like where you live, find another place to live.
I do not want to continue in misery and lack, I want to move away from it. I left a verbally abusive wife. I could no longer deal with the misery of a bad marriage. You do not have to either. Your life today, this instant and in the future can be far better as soon as you get out of mistake of a marriage.
You do not have to continue the old way of thinking that since you got married you have to stay married forever. It is your life and you can have the abundance and happiness you deserve.
You can make whatever changes you want to make.
