Dreams, not deficiencies
Is there something in your life that you are dissatisfied with? Do you wish for more, in some area?
If you’re looking through the lens of possibility, these are called dreams. And they’re awesome.
On the other hand, if you are lookng at those same things as problems, they’re called deficiencies. And now they’re painful.
It’s absolutely good to want more. To grow. To expand. But to focus on the fact that you don’t have it, rather than on the joy you will feel from it, misses the entire point.
Which is to feel good about the things we want and why we want them, as we move toward them. (And if you think about it, they pretty much all boil down to love, joy, happiness, and peace. What an awesome state for all!)
So how does a divine soul having a human experience (PS, that’s each one of us) begin to move toward this?
Start with what you have now. Take the relationships you have now. Take the home you have now. Take the job you have now. Take the health you have now. Practice gratitude for it all. See the wonderfulness that’s there now. Even if it’s just one tiny aspect.
(Pro tip: if gratitude and finding a positive is too challenging a place to begin, then start with what you have now and let the God of your understanding turn it into something beautiful.)
