Share Life

How many people are truly happy for other people? When you tell people about the good things that are happening or have happened to you, what are their responses? Do they seem truly happy for you? What do you feel inside when people tell you the good things that have happened or are happening to them? Are you truly happy for them, or does envy sneak in?
Try to respond to other people’s good news in the same way you would want them to respond to yours. When envy tries to creep in, remind yourself that there are too many good things in the world happening, for all of them to happen to you. We classify events as good or bad, to the universe they are just events. The same way that you wouldn’t want to be burdened with all the events you consider to be bad, share the ones you consider to be good. Sometimes it will be difficult because we may want or feel, we deserve what someone else is enjoying. Have faith that when it is right for us, it will come to us. If we focus on what we are not receiving instead of looking at the things we are receiving the world seems unfair and desperate. If we share in others people’s joys, trust builds and then when we experience ours, they will truly be happy for us. It’s a big world, share it and not only will it feel more just, but it will be a lot more rewarding.
