2011 Misery–redefining the word Misery

Miserable

How I used to define Misery

When feeling miserable - in misery - I experience myself as ‘low’, like in literally or metaphorically wriggling on the floor from grief and distress – an everlasting experience so it seems to me (although eventually this state always ends). When in this ‘miserable’ state I usually have thoughts like: this is who I really am, this is the truth of me: a miserable being – please shoot me.

Dictionary definition of Misery

Noun: misery
  1. A state of ill-being due to affliction or misfortune
  2. A feeling of intense unhappiness
late 14c., "condition of external unhappiness," from O.Fr. miserie (12c.), from L. miseria "wretchedness," from miser . Meaning "condition of one in great sorrow or mental distress" is from 1530s. Meaning "bodily pain" is 1825, Amer.Eng.



Sounding of the word Misery

Mis–ery
Missing something (being happy) but this is actually in reverse - misery is a state where there is added something to a neutral, stable state of being (=being Here in Breath) – by thoughts and corresponding emotions (the mind) which causes a person to experience ‘being miserable’.
So transformed: in misery I am missing me in a neutral stable state of being (which is: not being identified with mind)




Re-definition of the word Misery



Misery is the experience of me missing the point of me being Here in Breath as stable and unconditional embrace of what is Here in actuality.

    Hi Ingrid,
    from what i understand about redefining words is that we have to make the new meaning positive, meaning that we must define the word in a way that it supports us, to give it a meaning that we want to live from now on. looking at your new definition - whenever you would hear that word you would immediately access your new definition - which says that you are still missing (negative) - so, i would play with the sound to look for positive meaning maybe like mISEry- I SEE myself... or something like that, and if you cannot find anything in the sounding just create other meaning that you want to live from now on.

    that's how i have been explained about it - so just look into it and see what works

    cheers
