Maria Duval - Living Spiritually On A Higher Level

We are essentially unhappy because we confuse the totality and the part. When we don't see a scenario in its whole, we simply embrace self-destructive propensity.

Take example, take that irritating sinking feel; when, after getting angry, we discover, all too late, that things weren't quite as bad as imagined and it was we who misjudged or misunderstood a particular person or situation. Once we see the situation as a whole, we can assume we were incorrect to be angry, upset, anxious or afraid.

How often have we jumped to conclusion without thinking and then remorsed over our actions after what have happened, when we fully understood the circumstance? So it is crucial to fully dicipher the matter in question. Believe Maria Duval, there is an answer for everything. Nothing that occurs to you, and nothing that you cause to occur, is inexplainable.

Allow light to shot through you rather than worry. It's your decision. Isn't it extraordinary to realise you can always choose what is advantageous for you? All you need to realise that nothing can be modified until you understand that your bad luck is not dependent on events, but creates them.

We tend to think that events which are either favored or inauspicious, good or bad occur. In other words, our feelings reflect what happens from one moment to the next. That is why, at this level, when we are unhappy, our first reflex is to want to change the circumstances we believe to be responsible for our sorrowfulness. We believe that modifying the context in which we are suffering will put an end to that suffering.

This has never been and never will be the case, since it is not the event that makes us unhappy, it is our reaction to the event. What is more, you can free yourself from this unsufferable task, this incredible self-punishment which consists of believing that you are responsible for the destiny of the entire universe.

Lastly, Maria Duval reiterates that the only universe for which you are responsible is your personal inner universe which is the universe of your thoughts, feelings, emotions and desires. Your spiritual development depends on your ability to vision succintly inside this universe. And it is this brand new vision that carries the key to your security. It is the foundation of your future successes since when you are aware of the potholes, your travel through life will be easy and cheerful.
