The More You Complain The Less You Obtain

Ever notice how you just keep getting more of the stuff you complain about and less of the stuff you want? The old saying the squeaky wheel gets the grease is flat out wrong and each of us knows it, the squeaky wheel just gets more to squeak about. The complaint program is an insidious one that we really must free ourselves from or we might literally spend our lives complaining and none of our lives getting what we want. Does that sound like fun? So next time something is bugging you, just love it and make friends with it in your head and that will free you and free whatever it is you were tempted to complain about. And then you'll really be free to welcome the things you truly want into your lives.

Peace of I,

Hi Phil,

Thanks for this reminder. I love it when I start complaining about something, and Dr. Hew Len says, "Good for you! [about having that issue show up]". It's an opportunity to clean with it and let it go. Being human, I don't always remember . . . so writings like yours help.

I'm the manager of a counseling appointment center at the local JC, and one of my jobs is to deal with the complainers before they get to my boss. I've been dealing with more and more complaints as our funding and staff dwindles down to nothing. Students don't understand that every college is like this - they just think we're fucking around with them. I hate squeaky wheels, and I refuse to grease them.
