When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


I feel as if misery is always following me. Why is that?


It probably seems that way, because in your mind, you have come to expect misery. Misery is an interpretation of an event that you supply, it is not inherent in the action itself, any more than disappointment, humor, gratitude or happiness are necessarily implied in any given event. So the question becomes, “Why do you see your life in terms of misery?” Maybe it’s a defense mechanism you learned from a parent as a way to attract sympathy. Or maybe you unconsciously adopted it as a strategy to remain powerless and therefore blameless. You’ll need to reflect on this yourself and discover what apparent benefit you feel you get from this outlook and then decide if the emotional price you pay for it is worth it. If not, then you are free to explore other outlooks on life that offer greater happiness and success.

    I have found that when Misery is observed with the watchers eye it is nothing more than a reminder to us that we have known joy. We are witness to the intensity of a callback to joy. There is none so earnest amongst us than the one in the hands of misery. The seeker within us is immediately called forth, its mission to seek out all that is not joyful in our present state of being. I wonder if our experience of being followed by misery is in fact joy stalking us, demanding our surrender to its address. Lets face it, misery is the great artist of leaving little space for anything but the attendance of its miserly voice. It may also be our greatest ally in turning ourselves around as we attend to what needs attention. Sense your present boundaries and ask misery what it is seeking beyond....I would hazard a guess joy is driving it mad exclaiming excitedly about something wonder-full around the corner!!
