The core reason for all suffering is the focus on lack. By focusing on lack, we suffer wanting something that we don't have. It leads to daydreaming
and then coming back to reality and giving up hope. Lack becomes obsessive and then we forget about all of things that we DO have in life that we CAN
be happy about.
When we believe in lack, this leads to greed (feelings of needing more and more), it leads to jealousy (feeling angry that a person has something that
you do not), it leads to fear (feelings of shortage leads to defensiveness and insecurity)...
This is why I've been encouraging Appreciation so much lately. Not only does it take your mind off of the lack that you think is there, but it
relaxes you, eventually changes your perspective on things, and it is good for the heart (cohesion).
You have abundance now, you just have to focus on THIS (what is here for you now) instead of focusing on THAT (lack - what you want to be here or what
was here but no longer is).
Even if you had absolutely nothing, you still have an abundance of air that you are breathing... There is always SOMETHING to remind you of
plentifulness, the richness, the sufficiency of existence...
