#1 - Much Pain But Still Time - 42minutes long!
Each day we put ourselves through pain and torment, its done without knowing just how powerful we are, and how our thoughts can manifest states and emotions. People will often say that it is some other persons fault, some events fault, some situation, in fact I myself have fallen foul of this many many times, our reactions become so automatic, that we cannot see any other possibility, we look for outside ourselves events to make us feel better, and yes, sometimes they work, but always temporary.
If we could only see that we are 100% the cause of suffering, and we actually keep the suffering going, although a part of us will cry and wish for anything to make us better and happy again.
we could then see we are 100% the cause of happiness. If only we loved ourselves.
I was told time and time again when I was younger that i should not love myself or feel proud of any achievements, as it was not me that had done these things, but God! however, when I was naughty as a child I was told that was me. I was therefore programmed for failure, and fail I did, big time, to a point where I did not want to come back from it.
Its a learning curve, and I don't know if anyone could ever be 100% proficient at it, but its the journey, happiness would not be happiness if over night we found it, and could do it without fault.
There is still time for each and everyone of us to find out this truth, how much pain do we need to go through to discover this?
