Soul Wellness: Day 80 Bummer! How to Handle Disappointment
Success and disaster happen at the same time. This is a powerful teaching that Master Zhi Gang Sha teaches to his students. It is a very powerful teaching, but sometimes difficult to put into action. Everyday people around the world get disappointed because things don’t go as planned. Many people get disappointed when a family member forgets to do something very important for you, your husband or wife forgets a special day, a loved one says something to hurt your feelings, or a business project is not as successful as you thought it would be. We all have experienced disappointment in our life. If we allow the disappointment to grow it can turn to anger. Anger can potentially create new bad karma. We want to avoid creating new karma! If you want to be happy and healthy you need tools that help you to transform your disappointment so that you remain in the condition of love, peace and harmony. Let me share with you today a few things that work for me.
The first and most important thing to do is to acknowledge that you are disappointed. If you recognize that you are disappointed you can then transform it. If you are disappointed and then go into negativity, complaining, arguing, fighting, yelling, etc. you will then have the possibility of creating new bad karma. You will create disharmony within you, but also create disharmony in a relationship or some aspect of your life. In order to prevent into going into negativity you must acknowledge your feeling of disappointment. You need to develop your awareness so that you recognize feelings of disappointment within you.
The second step is to have gratitude to the Divine for giving you the opportunity to purify and to serve. The minute that you recognize that you are disappointed say “Thank you, Divine. I’m disappointed. I need to change this.” If you tell your mind that your disappointed and you need to change a shift will occur in your consciousness. Instead of going deeper into your negativity you will begin to see the light. You will begin to see solutions. You will begin to see how you can have love, peace and harmony. The key to transform your disappointment is to tell your mind “I’m disappointed. I need to change.” Your mind was the one who created the disappointment in the first place because of your expectations, beliefs, attachments, ego, etc.
The third step is to look for solutions. Look for ways that bring love, peace and harmony. I always ask myself the question “What is needed at this time to bring love, peace and harmony in this situation?” Look for ways that will bring light to the situation. Look for ways that will bring healing and transformation to the situation. It can be disappointment in a relationship, business, or any aspect of life. This one question will help you to see how everyone can benefit. No one should ever be singled out or blamed for the disappointment that was created within you. Your disappointment is related to your own mind blockages and karma. You are experiencing disappointment to transform and purify. Always look for ways that restore love, peace and harmony in all aspects of your life. Others will greatly appreciate you more when you help to bring love, peace and harmony. The Divine and all of heaven will be moved when you focus on love, peace and harmony. Your soul will be happier and healthier.
We get disappointed because our mind, our ego was not fulfilled. In order to release these blockages we need to purify our heart. The heart houses the mind. Let us now do a practice to purify our heart to release our mind blockages related to disappointment.
