I saw this many years ago in India, where the street people, who owned rags and sometimes a bowl, were smiling and friendly and laughing. Then I came back to the US and saw rich people in their luxury cars with grim faces of stone.
There is nothing outside of us that can make us happy. No person, place or thing will do the trick if our thinking and beliefs are skewed. The first belief to heal is that things should be different than they are. Once we get past that one, it’s easier. Please try it on, see how it works for you.
If we could accept that everything is exactly as it is meant to be, wouldn’t that be relaxing? If we are just the way we are meant to be, isn’t that better than constantly thinking we aren’t good enough? I’d love to hear from you about this.
