Opening the Front Door


You are certain that no one, and certainly not you, would ever want to suffer. And yet there is something you get from suffering that seems to compensate for all your suffering. Have you ever felt: "Look at me. Look at how much I suffer. Look at me. Look at all this unfairness. Look at what happened to me. Look at what the world has done to me. Look at what God has allowed."


And so there is a ragged remnant of transmuted joy that you get out of suffering. It makes you a stand-out. Look, all the troubles of the world fell on you. That makes you noteworthy.

Of course, you don't want suffering to be the theme of your life. So, change your tune. As much as you never would, you are making yourself a target to your miseries. Have you perhaps thought or even made a speech something like this: "Look at what has befallen me. What ton of bricks am I going to be hit with next. Lightning does strike more than once. Always the bridesmaid and never the bride. If something terrible is going to happen, it happens to me."

The name of the song you sing may be: "Alas, poor me."

Formulate a new impression of yourself, to yourself and to the world. Say, "The world sings for me. Good fortune comes to me. The most wonderful things happen to me. Thank You, God."

Whatever your situation, good is on its way to you. Help it along.

What you feel is very often what you get. See your life as tragedy, and tragedy will find you. This is not an exact science, yet, by and large, this is the case. Yet, of course, into every life some rain will fall. In any case, start seeing yourself as blessed.

Yes, there is that about finding the good in everything. That has its place. Yet what I am asking of you is to draw the good to you. This is not the same as making demands. This is opening the front door for a welcome guest.

You may not have all immediate say in your life, and, yet, no matter how bedraggled you may feel, you have some say. At the very least, do not lie down in the middle of the road, waiting to be run over.

Again, I ask you to let go of past thinking, past themes, past moods, past convictions. Let go of the past. When you feel put upon, why would you hang on to it unless you like to feel put upon? No longer feel put upon. Be your own free-wheeling person. Get up and welcome love and beauty and so invite them to you.

There is no need for you to ask for mercy. Life is good, so why ask for mercy? No longer see yourself as a supplicant. See yourself as beloved and lucky. Walk in good fortune.

What are the ways that you have been fortunate? Think of your good fortune and let the rest go. Do not keep misery to you. Do not gather dark clouds. Be sunlight. Begin joy.

If you have been feeling miserable, you have been complicit in the act. No matter how innocent you are, how complicit you have been. This is how you trespass, beloveds. You take an unbecoming photo and you hang it on your door.

Do not feel sorry for yourself. Be glad for yourself. Look to good fortune, and good fortune will find you. Let Me be your good fortune. Be your own good fortune. Get ready for it. Get used to it. Hail to your good fortune.

Post by vegasdinar Fri Jan 06, 2012 1:27 pm

This is EXACTLY what many of the posters on here need to understand. It's the mindset that is most important. It's an approach to life that mirrors people's approach to the ups and downs of this investment. Being negative is easy, lazy, and weak. Opening the door to good things takes a focused mental discipline--a little more work.

As this day approached, I knew the typical "Gotcha" and "I told you so" negative posters would be out in full force. This site has become somewhat toxic due to them. I sometimes feel kind of gross after reading the posts of the regulars on here. (They know who they are.) They need to quit their sense of entitlement and whining.

There's a lot of criticism of the gurus on here--keep in mind that this site is named after a guru. If you don't like guru talk go somewhere else!

Thank you vegasdinar, we may be assisting a few of those in their desire to seperate from the gurus today. Sometimes, enough is enough.

There is an old saying: "Argue for your limitations and sure enough they are yours."
If people insist on suffering and/or creating conditions in the world that bring about suffering it is certainly something I do not understand or agree with.

That was excellent, ponee. Ditto to everyone who added encouraging words to follow up. I don't remember who said it, and I'm paraphrasing here, but a person's character is shown not so much by how he acts as by how he reacts to circumstances in life. Is there a more difficult virtue to learn than patience? Not for me, there isn't! But I'm learning. And how we treat each other here MATTERS. We can also CHOOSE to see only the storm clouds and grumble as we slog through the mud puddles ... OR we can look up and see the glory of the rainbow, the promise of better times ahead. Which do you choose? ❤

Very good vegasdinar!! I come on the site to GET some insight and instructions, and then I have to read all the negative BS to get to the 'good' stuff!! If they don't like what they read or hear, why do they keep coming?? Maybe that's what it's like when 'some' people have never had money and/or spent money they didn't have in the first place...now they are frustrated and disgruntled!! Maybe they need to look up investment, speculative, high risk!!! If they had investigated first, they would know that this may take a long time, they would know that we weren't even suppose to be a part of this transfer of funds!! I think it's called being proactive!! I remind myself everyday that this was never intended for us little people! I am so thankful to be included in this! Even it the RV was 1 to 1, it is more than I started with and for that I will be grateful!!

Remember that Buffalo fish...it's good but ya gotta pick out the bones, so it is with intel, Gurus, and some of these post...pick out the bones!! Everybody, lets stay encouraged!!

GO RV!! happydance

So good ponee!! I am so glad you posted this! We bring on ourselves what we speak from our mouth. I just listened to Joel Osteen's message about this very thing. 'Speak Faith Into Your Future, 477r-Audio-Podcast'. This was so good, I downloaded the podcast to my Blackberry. I try as much as humanly possible to keep away from negativity, I see my glass as half full not half empty, encourage myself in the Lord, and try to watch the words that come out of my mouth!! OMG, it sure takes pressure off...life is good!! I could do a lot of crying about my life since I was 17 years old, but it does no good...it only makes the rest of my life miserable! Watch for my book in the future, 'From The Grave To Grace, My Journey'.

Thanks again ponee!!
