The task ahead of you is never greater than the strength within you. – Unknown
A young man decided to reach for his dream, but he didn’t have enough strength to do it. So he turned to his mother.
“Mother, please help me!”
“Son, I would be happy to help you, but I don’t have it. Everything I have, I have already given to you.”
He asked a wise man.
“Master, where can I find strength?”
“It is said that it is on Mt Everest, but unfortunately I couldn’t find anything there except the snowy winds and when I returned, my time was irretrievably lost.”
He asked a Hermit.
“Holy Father, where do I find the strength to realize my dream?”
“In your prayers, my son. If your dream is false, you will understand it and find peace in your prayers.”
The young man had asked everyone, but the only result in his search was confusion.
“Why are you so confused son?” asked an old man passing by.
“I have a dream, good man, but I don’t know where to find strength for its realization. I have asked everyone, but no one could help me.”
” No one?” said the old man. Did you ask yourself?”
Searching outside myself for answers always leads me away from discovering the truth; that I have everything I need within. It is only when I trust this knowledge and practice it, that I find all the love, patience, peace and strength I need to see me through every experience.
