“If you are unable to find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?” – Dogen
Why do we search outwardly for answers? Why do we not believe that we hold the key and wisdom to all our questions?
Most of us when feeling discontented can think it’s easier to blame our circumstances for our unhappiness or shift the blame to others, like our boss, colleague, partner or family.
Blaming outside influences and circumstances to be the reason why we are not happy, diminishes our motivation and drive to take responsibility for all that we create in our life.
It is often the need for approval and acceptance that encourages us to allow the opinion or advice of others to override our dreams. When this internal pressure is created the tendency is to abandon our dreams. In order to grow and achieve, we must map out our own destiny, set our own goals and develop our own action plan.
Overtime, you will learn to trust your intuition and wisdom and no-one will be able to tell you or pressure you on how to live your life. At the same time, no-one can be blamed when it doesn’t go according to plan.
“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.” – Johann Wolgang von Goethe
Allow yourself time each day in stillness and meditation. You will find overtime this is your solution to find clarity and understanding, no matter what your circumstances are.
Take responsibility to find what is right for you, no-one is the same and we all offer a unique and wonderful contribution to each other and the universe.
Search for your answers within and you will always find your truth and your destiny.
“What the mind can conceive and believe, and the heart desire, you can achieve.” – Norman Vincent Peale
