(Health Secrets) Have you ever felt like something is missing in your life and you just can’t put your finger on what it is? Maybe it’s love, friendship, connection, harmony, or peace. The way to find what is missing in your life is as individual as the person. However, everyone agrees they are looking for something that is missing even if they don’t know what it’s called.
What I’ve learned, which seems counter intuitive, is to be the change you want to see by giving what is missing in your life. Give the thing you want to receive. Give what you need and it will be given to you.
It’s an interesting concept and at face value probably seems to make no sense at all. It’s simple, straightforward and easy to do if you are open to trying something that sounds like the complete opposite of what you want.
We somehow learn in our lives that if we don’t experience love, we should be wary of it and guard against it. Don’t love first for fear of being rejected. Don’t commit to a friendship until someone earns your trust. I’m not sure how these lessons are learned. I don’t ever recall actually being taught them. However, I do know it’s not natural for our society to give before we receive. We are always keeping score to make sure everything is fair and even. I’m here to challenge our traditional way of thinking by asking you if you’d be willing to give what you are looking for in order to receive it.
We reap what we sow and in doing so by giving, we will receive. If unconditional love is what we are looking for, our nature should be one of unconditional love. If supportive, close friendships are what we seek, we should be about offering supportive and compassionate friendship with those around us. If our way of being mirrors what’s missing in our lives we must, by the nature of the world, find what we are looking for. Focusing on what we don’t have, what’s missing, and the lack of an important quality in our lives only brings more of the same. By exhibiting the quality, we open to more of that quality to come into our own lives.
As you look at others, notice the quality you want to find. What you perceive in others, you strengthen in yourself. So if all you notice is faults and shortcomings, you strengthen them in yourself. If you look for positive aspects in others, you will find blessings and in doing so strengthen those positive things in yourself.
What you share you strengthen, so in sharing your gifts of love, friendship, compassion, empathy and trust, you reinforce them in your own treasure chest. What you acknowledge in others you acknowledge in yourself; as you recognize the beauty in others you will also see the beauty in yourself. As you judge others, you judge yourself.
Judging another doesn’t define them, it defines who you are.
In changing the way we see others, we change the way we see ourselves. At the foundation of all that is – we are all connected. As we see and treat each other, we see and treat ourselves.
Whatever you are missing, try displaying that quality to all those around you. If you are persistent, sincere, authentic, and consistent you will soon find an overwhelming abundance of that very quality in your life. All of this must be done with a joyful heart, an attitude of gratitude, and with authenticity as your purpose. You must believe and have faith in the old saying that you get what you give.
As you begin looking for what is missing by displaying what you are looking for, your intentions must be pure, your purpose passionate, and your goal altruistic. For how it’s accomplished is more important than what you find. You may be surprised by just how effective this technique will be in bringing you complete fulfillment.
