Desire is the source of all suffering, is a familiar quote. For normal people, I think it means that if you focus on what you don’t have, you don’t enjoy the bounty that surrounds you already.
For me it means don’t post, speak, or write your goals; the Universe takes them as the punch line and makes a joke.
If I say that I want to work out 3-5 days a week, within 2 weeks I will get sick or injure myself.
If I say I want to write 1000 words everyday my computer will break, I’ll get sick, or one of my work kids will lose it and I’ll be so exhausted from work that during my six hours off I’ll do nothing but sleep. (Oh, yes, this has so happened before.)
Now this isn’t to say I don’t have goals, hopes, and dreams. I do, we all do, but I just try to not let the Universe know what they are.
What about you? Can you share your desires, or does the Universe see it as a challenge to mess with you?
hiding your goals from the universe… does that work?? i am feeling it right now actually. 14 weeks pregnant and stll feeling like complete shit. i thought this was done on week 12. what the hell?? I have a life to live you know. napping and nausea just don’t make life super grand at the moment. 😛
🙁 I’m sorry you are still feeling bad, and yes as long as I don’t declare anything out loud or in writing it seems to work just fine.
And here I thought I was the only one she did that to, guess not. Makes me feel better.
