nutrition wrote:Yes, I see that, it is true.
It is also true that in our western world we have so much. We eat every day and what we want, even more than we need. We have all sorts of things and are able to afford entertainement, gadgets, clothers, trips....and even, like me, to post on forums.
Then there is this gardener from India that works where i do. His family is in India and he sends them money. He leaves with almost nothing in a very tiny room. He sees his family once a year and he says his kids are growing too fast and he misses them.
Then there is my husband and many others like him who have everything and do not appreciate having a family or what they have. They want to leave it for something better or more fulfilling. For someone they can be happy with. What is all this? Why all these contraddictions? Why do we always think something outside can make us happy?
That man from India is happy, watching him work is like watching a person meditating.
What can fill the vacuum that we have in our hearts when we truly have so much and we want so much more?!

I have gotten things I have visualized in a precise way only to find out it is not what I wanted or it didn't offer long term satisfaction....'course that's the smoke and mirrors of the self.
If it is not what we need how can the universe manifest it to us?
