It s quite agonizing to experience most things turning the way it should be! The frustration arising out of such grim turn of events make one really shiver in a saddening state of affairs. Is there any explanations for such continued mishaps in life. Hoping for the better to turn out to be dismal.Any explanations for the like happenings in our life?

If you dream of things you wish, they will be just that dreams. To achieve what you want you must focus on that goal and work toward it. This means you saturate your mind with the goal and forsee the future as your goal. There are many articles on the Internet on how to gain what you want. The law of attraction is one. Remember nothing is easy but if you want it enough you will not mind the hard work.

There are bad times and sad times in life. You're gonna have to live through them to live life. We can find ways to cope with them and I'm sure you'll find your own solution to this gloomy experience.

I do not know about the explanation for things turning out less than you expect. Perhaps you need to re evaluate what it is that you are seeking. The other thing I would say is that you should remember the things that do turn our right. The other thing is that you need to just continue to be faithful in what you seek.I do not have everything I want, and there are some disappointments. I guess I just have become more content as I have gotten older.

I have faced many years of bitterness in life and I never stop praying for good things to come. Only now when I am in my twilight years did God see it fit to shower me with the brighter side of life. God has His plans for everyone of us. Don't give up hope as God works on His own time, never cease to communicate with him in your own silent prayers.

Thanks. Very nicely put. God must definitely be having His own designs for each one of us. Have a nice time. Good luck to you.

Hello my friend sukumar794 Ji, In fact everyone expects that it should happen as one wishes. This concept itself is wrong. There are many factors which bring out such conditions, but one should never get disheartened . Let us think of below as Golden rule, one may apply to get satisfaction :- "[b]SATSANG (a) ”If you can balance /stable your mind, when people around you are in un-balanced , and at the same time blaming you”. (NO-reaction) (b) “If you have belief on yourself, when others have doubt and at the same time, you strongly oppose their belief of their doubt” (c) “If you can wait for Good/Bright days without loosing patience/getting disheartened of waiting”. (d) “Everyone around you is deceiving you , whereas you are not in any way.” (e) “ Every body hates you and you do not, at the same time, you ARE not proud to be ‘good’ and ‘wise’. (f) “ If you Can dream, but do not allow them to overpower you, and you Can ‘think’ but at the same time, do not plunge into dreams of ‘thinking”. (g) “If you can welcome ‘gains’ and ‘defeat’ OR ‘profit’ & ‘loss’ with open hearts and they do not unbalance your mind”. (h) “If you can accept your own words in twisted/mutilated /distorted form, happily by ‘fools’ and they do not involve you in their bad plans”. (i)“ If you Can bear/tolerate the ‘gains’ accomplished by you ‘raise to ashes’ , for which you took whole life to build, and at the same time you can once again order your tired hands to restart making”. (J) “ If you can take one chance to reduce your gains in your life, ‘loose’ or ‘gain’ (like a great gambler) (k)“If you can, after loosing every bit in your life, get ready fresh to obtain the same with total energy from all corners of your body and mind, without uttering a single word even”. (l)“ If you Can compel your heart, mind and limbs, when they are so tired and refuse to accept any thing, except that your ‘belief’ and ‘desire’ to order them that they have to march forward and not falling back”. (m) “ If you can roam in crowds, but do not allow your ‘thoughts’ and ’abilities’ to wander stray, and you live with emperor, but do not neglect common man “. (n) “ If you are unharmed by people loving you and people hating you”. (o)“ If you Can respect everybody within the limits, but at the same time nobody”. (p)“ IF YOU CAN REMEMBER THE UN-EXCUSED MOMENT/SECOND (time) OF YOUR LIFE, AND EXPLAIN THE REASON FOR THE SAME”. Then, the whole world belongs to you only and every thing that exists on this, at the same time you fall under the category of ‘ACTUAL HUMAN BEING ’, which is greatest achievement in the life than any thing else”.[/b] Thanks. May God bless You and have a great time.

Thanks a lot. Very nice to have uploaded such nice words of soothing comfort and solace. Quite often I get disheartened. But I am quite sure that GOD in whom I have put in quite a lot of faith and trust will redeem me from all troubles and save me at the eleventh hour. Good luck and all the very best to you.

One explanation is that the more we fear the more bad things seem to happen and that in order to turn that around one must maintain an optimistic and confident attitude. Pessimists do not like to hear this view, but my experience is that in general what we expect is what we get.

I was discussing this very topic with a friend just a few days ago and she made an interesting point when I complained that my dream of opening up a cattery seemed far from materialising any time soon. My friend told me that I should stop saying that I ‘want a cattery’ because saying that repeatedly keeps me in a wanting state and never at my goal; it is better to say ‘when I have my cattery….’ My friend is a very spiritual person and a firm believer that we draw to us everything that happens with our attitude, energy and hard work.

I believe in fate and I also believe in thing happening for a reason as to teach us a lesson. We are all put here for a reason and sometimes it is a matter of teaching. For those that believe in reincarnation then I would say that some have to pay for what they did in a previous life. All things considered it could be alot worse!
