Misery

“Is it true that money cannot buy happiness? Yes, it is true.  Money cannot buy happiness—but it makes misery more comfortable.  That’s why I am not against money—I am all for it.  It is better to be comfortably miserable than uncomfortably miserable.  I have lived in poverty and I have lived in richness, and believe me: Richness is far better than poverty.  I want you to be rich in every possible way—material, psychological, spiritual.  I want you to live the richest life that has ever been lived on the earth.” ~ Osho, Fame, Fortune, and Ambition

“The misery that oppresses you lies not in your profession but in yourself!  What man in the world would not find his situation intolerable if he chooses a craft, an art, indeed any form of life, without experiencing an inner calling?  Whoever is born with a talent, or to a talent, must surely find in that the most pleasing of occupations!  Everything on this earth has its difficult sides!  Only some inner drive—pleasure, love—can help us overcome obstacles, prepare a path, and lift us out of the narrow circle in which others tread out their anguished, miserable existences!” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, via Mastery

“You have to create the atmosphere of happiness around you.  If everybody is miserable, how can you be happy?  You will be affected.  You are not a stone, you are a very delicate being, very sensitive.  If everybody is miserable around you, their misery will affect you.  Misery is as infectious as any disease.  Blissfulness is also infectious as any disease.  If you help others to be happy, in the end you help yourself to be happy.” ~ Osho, Love, Freedom, Alonenss: The Koan of Relationships

“In my years of traveling the world, I’ve heard hundreds of tear-filled stories.  I’ve hugged complete strangers as they’ve sobbed in my arms.  I always whisper the same thing to them: ‘Look for the gift in your pain.’  If you look for that gift, believe me, you will find it.  If you don’t look, it’s all too easy to become enslaved by your misery.” ~ Sean Stephenson, Get Off Your “But”
