When disappointment sets in

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future". (Jeremiah 29:11)

When we experience a feeling of disappointment it is an indication to us that we are unhappy and dissatisfied. It really means that we had hoped to find happiness, security, success and/or fulfillment in someone, something or some event, and to later realize that: that person, that thing or that event is incapable of fulfilling none of those expectations. Now what should one do?

Most people keep on changing their life experiences in an effort to have those needs met. This is why people jump from one relationship to the next. Some keeps on relocating or changing jobs and careers. While those outside changes can provide at first a quick satisfaction that can be very deceiving at first, they cannot provide any inner transformation. As a result many people find themselves right where they began.

Others may feel stuck, perhaps in a dead en job, a dead en marriage or even a dead en church. In the meanwhile their soul remains unsatisfied. This longing of the soul for happiness, success, fulfillment can turn into confusion, depression and even suicide when not met. And some religious people may experience spiritual atrophy if they are unhappy with their church service but yet feel hopeless.

Disappointment can last anywhere to a few seconds up to a decade. And in some extreme cases it can last an entire lifetime. What makes the difference is how each individual react to it.

Feeling disappointed in itself is not a bad thing. It is a reminder of our life purpose. It is an indication because it tells us what is going on in the inside so that we may redirect, analyze and reorganize our consciousness. Disappointment is good when we use for its right purpose.

Nowadays a lot of relationships are suffering precisely because of disappointment. When we don’t deal with it right away it can turn into indifference. And many couples even end up getting a divorce because they feel that their marriage is not what they’d hoped it will be.

The solution is so simple that many fail to find it. The truth is we were wired to desire happiness and success. It is perfectly natural to want to be loved and to love. But the deepest longing of the soul is to reunite with the divine; its Source. That place, or that awareness is the kingdom within. Jesus said very few chooses that path; the path to Self realization. The soul wants more out of our life experiences! It wants more than to simply exist. It wants bliss and spiritual ecstasy.

Changing our life experiences is not the answer, but seeking the way to experience the kind of happiness that does not depend on any outside experiences, and seeking to find the kind of success that does not depend on the accumulation of material possessions or money is the REAL Answer.

Today, if you are feeling disappointed don't look for any reasons or someone to blame. This practice is pointless and can only create more pain. Instead seek to discover your true divine Self; this is happiness.


I would love to hear from you :-)
