If I feel bad about the way somebody is, then I should take a good look at myself and ask myself:
“Why do you feel bad about this person because he is so self-confident?”
“Why do you feel bad about her, because she is so rich?”
Well, maybe because I don’t feel particularly confident myself, or rich myself.
And so that is where I should start building abundance.
And maybe I can only be my own teacher here, because those feelings are so strong. At another time I can have a teacher who is a lot richer and more self-confident, but at this time there are hollows within me that need to be filled before I can listen neutrally to such a person.
And not filter what I hear through my own feelings of inferiority and distort it all and feel bad, which is not the idea.
I can probably learn from others, who are … somewhere else, but still have these qualities (e.g. of being self-confident and rich) more than I have.
I probably can.
But I have to start with myself.
I have to start building my own sense of being rich, or abundant, or powerful or whatever works for me.
I have to start building my own sense of self-confidence, from other criteria then somebody else’s criteria. (Or what I perceive them to be.)
In English: I have to start looking at and appreciating what I can do, instead of being obsessed about what others can do – or appear to be able to. And let that overshadow my own qualities and accomplishments.
Isn’t that the simple, natural truth?
Yes, and it is very hard.
But worth giving your life for.
