The Middle Self represents reason and Lower Self emotion.When reason and emotion are in conflict nine times out of ten emotions wins.And predictably ,because of the discomfort felt at receiving happiness ,the happiness goes away to leave one lonely and miserable again. The inner blockage has repelled the happiness.where there is inner conflict and lack of harmony between the three selves all chances of happiness and fulfillment are nullified. Where there is no happiness within there can be no happiness, or chance of getting it, from outside.
So in order to usher happiness and fulfillment into your life, and all the things that make living worthwhile,you have got to achieve harmony within your self. there is no use in offering Prana to your Higher Self when the path to it is blocked by so much negativity .You will get nothing back from your Higher Self no matter how hard you try.
