Stop being a miser – and you will never be miserable!

Have you ever wondered why when we are created so 'able', let us say arguably by the creator, do we end up becoming so 'miserable'?

The answer lies in the word 'miserable'. In one sense of the word, 'miserable' means someone who has great wealth but leads a despicable, wretched existence in trying to be stingy with spending it. The wealth  that we truly have is this Life, the ability to love and to be loved, and through living intelligently, the ability to be happy. When we don't recognize this great wealth that we have, and keep pining over what we don’t have, we live in misery. To become 'able'__in fact, recognize and be that which we already are__we must stop being miserly. We must be generous with our love for all that is part of creation. And through loving Life, unconditionally, we discover abundant, limitless, inner joy!

In fact, as Eckhart Tolle, author of the best seller, The Power of Now, says, “All that you think Life is withholding from you is what your are withholding from Life!”

So stop being a miser. Let go of all you have! And all that holds you back. See how able then you are to celebrate Life’s boundless abundance!
