The End Of Lack

by Jo Lawrence-Mills


Stop comparing yourself with other people.

Take your focus off what they have. Their success. Their happiness. Their wonderful relationships. Their acheivements. Their abundance.

When you compare, you experience lack, envy; resistance to you, where you are, what you have. You feel far from where you should be, far from home, far from life.

But life is here; life is never far away. Take your attention off others, and invite it closer, to where you are, to the breath, the sensations in the body. Feel your connection with the earth, your rootedness in presence. Allow yourself to feel what you feel - sadness, anger, even despair. Let these ancient guests move through today. You didn't create them and it's not your job to get rid of them.

You are not a fixed 'person' in time and space, but a vessel, a present capacity for every thought, every feeling, every hope, every dream, every wave of sorrow and bliss.

Your abundance lies in your breath, friend, your closeness to earth, your originality, your open heart, your ability to laugh at the seriousness of this world.

You are vast, and beyond compare.
