“What people yearn for makes them weak. When you fall in love and yearn for another person, the very fact that you are desperate for him or her weakens you. It often means you can’t have this person. Your stifling need makes the other person uncomfortable, and they back away. When you yearn for a particular goal in life –leaning toward it emotionally, pushing for it – you affirm that you don’t have it. Thus, you push the very think you want way from yourself.
So, control that yearning. Say, “Hey, I’d like to have a new car, but I can’t afford it at this time. I feel abundant; I feel the car is becoming a part of my life. I’ll get it later, or perhaps something even better will come along.” Then work in a concerted way toward materializing your goal. Don’t yearn and don’t moan. Take a moment each day before you go to sleep or before you rise in the morning to give thanks for what you DO have.”
Stuart Wilde, in “Infinite Self”
