You may be under the shackles of poverty, maybe you have no friends and you are alone all day long, and you are eagerly looking forward to stop complaining
Perhaps the shackles of poverty are trapping you, or you have no friends and are alone all day long, and you are eagerly looking forward to reducing the heavy burden on yourself; however, the burden remains, and you seem to have fallen into the abyss of darkness. Perhaps you keep complaining and lamenting your own destiny; you blame the environment where you were born, your parents, your boss, or the injustice that makes you suffer from poverty and hardship, but allows others to enjoy abundance and ease.
Stop your complaining and eliminate your worries; none of these objects you blame is the cause of your poverty. Because it is within yourself, everything needs to be remedied by yourself. If you blame others, you will only keep yourself in the same situation, and it is enough to show that you lack a belief, and this belief is the cornerstone of hard work and progress.
In the law-conscious universe, there is no place for people who complain about the heavens and others, and worry is actually equivalent to soul suicide. If you don’t have the right mentality, then you will only let the chains bind yourself tighter and keep yourself living in the dark.
Change your negative attitude towards life, and your external life will also change accordingly. Arm yourself with beliefs and knowledge, so that you can get a better situation and greater opportunities. First, make sure you use everything you have in the best possible way. In real life, you should be down-to-earth, focus on the big picture, start small, and don’t go too far. At the same time, you should summarize the previous lessons in time, otherwise you may repeat the same mistakes.
Just like school children must master the course they are learning before they learn the next lesson, you must firmly grasp everything you already have before working towards the more fruitful results you desire. Many stories in the Bible contain this truth. If we misuse, ignore, or degrade what we have, no matter how insignificant it is, we will lose it because of the act of showing that we are not worthy of it.
makes your environment more elegant
Maybe you live in a small house and the surrounding environment is not tidy. You aspire to have a bigger, sanitary residence. So next, in order to make yourself worthy of such a residence in the future, you must first build your hut into a little paradise.
Keep the house clean and spotless. Do your best to make the cabin feel beautiful and warm. Carefully prepare simple meals, neatly arrange inexpensive tableware. If you can’t afford a gorgeous roll of carpet, then make your cabin full of smiles and welcome, use good words as nails, and rely on the hammer of patience to fix it firmly. This carpet will never fade in the sun, and it is durable.
You have to think of ways to make the current environment more elegant, so that you will be able to surpass them and exceed their requirements. At the right time, you will move to a better house and live in a more elegant environment. In fact, this better house and more elegant environment have been waiting for you, and through the efforts of the past you have made yourself fully qualified to accept them.
Maybe you want to have more time to think and do other things, and feel that your labor intensity is too high and your labor hours are too long. In this situation, you should see if you have made full use of the available time at every point. If you are wasting your existing time, then your desire for more time will become meaningless, because that will only make you lazier and your concept of time will be thinner.
What looks like a bad thing is actually a blessing
Even poverty and lack of time and leisure are not bad things you imagine, and if they hinder your progress, it is because you wrap them up with your own shortcomings. The bad side you see in them is actually the bad side within yourself.
Through your own efforts, you should fully and thoroughly realize that when you shape your mentality, you are the maker of your own destiny. With the help of the energy of self-discipline, you will realize this more and more, and eventually you will understand that these so-called bad things can be transformed into good things.
You will then use your poverty to develop your patience, hope and courage. If you lack time, then this can completely encourage you to make full use of every precious time you have. Over time, you can develop a decisive and resolute style.
Like a land overgrown with weeds, the most beautiful flowers grow, and in your impoverished black land, there are also beautiful flowers of life blooming. Where there are difficulties that need to be overcome, where there are unsatisfactory conditions that need to be improved, there is a fragrance of human virtues.
Maybe you are employed by an overbearing host or hostess, and you feel that you are often treated rudely by him or her. Then regard it as a compulsory course in your life. Repay your employer’s unkindness with gentleness and tolerance. Exercise your lasting patience and self-control. Use unfavorable external conditions to gain ideological and spiritual power, and gradually turn adversity into good times. Through your silent actions and invisible influences, you educate your employer and help him or her gradually feel ashamed of your actions. At the same time, raise yourself to a new spiritual realm. With this new spiritual realm, you can step into a new and more friendly environment.
no longer willing to be a slave
Don’t complain that you are a slave, try to cultivate a noble character and develop good behaviors, so that you can transcend the level of a slave. Before complaining that you are a slave to others, make sure you are not a slave to yourself.
Turn your eyes to your inner world; observe carefully and dare to face your shortcomings. Then you can find that there is a market for servile thoughts and willingness to become slaves. They make you develop the habit of servility. Conquer them, stop being a slave to yourself, no one has the power to enslave you. When you get out of the limitations set by yourself, you will be able to get rid of all adversities, and all difficulties will appear so pale and weak in front of you.
Don’t complain that you are oppressed by the rich. Are you sure that after you step into the ranks of the rich, you will not become an oppressor? Remember, there is an eternal law that upholds justice. Those who oppress others today are destined to be oppressed by others tomorrow. At this point, there are no exceptions. Perhaps you used to be wealthy and an oppressor, but now you are only paying off your debt to the Great Law. Correct your own thoughts, and strive to cultivate perseverance and perseverance, so that the truth and good will always stay in your heart.
Efforts to improve personal qualities and get rid of the shackles of servility. Abandon the illusion that “you are being hurt, or you are being oppressed by others”, and through a more comprehensive understanding of your inner life, try to realize that you are actually only hurt by things within yourself.
The cultivation of virtue
There is no behavior, which makes you degrade your personality and tarnish your soul more than self-pity. Throw away the behavior of self-pity. If you let this kind of “ulcer” corrupt your inner world, you should never expect your life to be meaningful and rewarding. Stop blaming others, and stop blaming yourself. Although your practices, desires, and thoughts have not yet reached the height of innocence, and have not radiated the light of perfection, but you should not accuse them. In this way, it is possible for you to build the mansion of your life on the foundation of eternity, and ensure that all the conditions for your happiness and health will mature day by day.
If you do not eliminate the inner selfish thoughts and negative factors, and cultivate virtue through your own continuous efforts, then you will never be able to escape poverty or any other situation you do not want. The way to achieve true prosperity is to enrich your soul with the cultivation of virtues. Without the cultivation of virtue, there is no way to talk about prosperity and strength.
I also realized that there are some people who don’t have virtues and don’t have much thoughts to cultivate their virtues, but they still make a lot of money. However, the large sum of money in their hands does not allow them to reap a prosperous and fulfilling life. The money obtained by crooked ways is not only hot, but also unable to accompany its owner for a long time.
David once pointed out: “In the end, whenever I see malicious people get rich, my heart is full of jealousy… On the surface, they live a very moist life and possess a lot of material wealth that others don’t… Later, until I cultivated my virtues and walked into the temple of God, I realized the mistakes I made at the beginning. I learned that a truly happy and fulfilling life cannot be achieved by possessing a lot of material wealth. Now, I have been able to see the future end of the vicious person.”
for the rich and unkind
David used to make a fortune and jealousy of vicious people, but he has withstood the test again and again, and walked into the temple of God in the spiritual world, seeing the inevitable end of vicious people in the future. You can step into the palace of the spiritual world as long as you make unremitting efforts. It is within yourself. If you break away from the low-level tastes and stick to the eternal laws of the universe, you can achieve that state of consciousness. That is the state of meaning like the kingdom of heaven, that is the highest sanctuary.
Relying on long-term struggle and self-discipline, you have successfully stepped into the door of the sacred hall, and you will be able to clearly and unambiguously perceive the outcome of all human thoughts and efforts, whether good or bad. Later, when you see immoral people get large amounts of ill-gotten wealth, your faith will no longer be shaken, because you know in your heart that such people will definitely not end well.
In real life, those who are wealthy and unkind often become a barren place for virtue, and his final outcome is always poor. Just as the water in the river will eventually flow into the sea, the money owned by the rich and unscrupulous will sooner or later flow to the poor and the unfortunate; although he may be richer when he dies, he must return to harvest his immoral brews. Bitter fruit. Although he has stepped into the ranks of the rich many times, he must have fallen into poverty many times, until the painful lessons and sufferings urged him to finally conquer the poverty of his inner world.
However, some people do not have a lot of money. If they are measured by money, they must be included in the ranks of the poor, but they are rich in virtue, so they are the real rich. They have gone through the process of coexisting with the poor and destined to become rich, and unlimited joy and happiness awaits them.
If you want to be a real and eternal rich person, then you must first cultivate your own virtues. Therefore, it is not difficult to see that it is unwise to set the goal directly on making a fortune and make it the only pursuit of one’s life. If you do this, you can only defeat yourself in the end. If you can set your goal on self-perfection, make beneficial and selfless service your life’s pursuit, and establish correct thoughts and firm beliefs, then you will reach the state of perfection and goodness.
