Understanding Your Inner & Outer Lives

“In every man there are two men. There is an outer man that people can see; there is an inner man that no human eye can see. The outer man may be hurt, wounded, marred, and even destroyed, while the inner man remains untouched, unharmed, and immortal.” – Unknown

When you come to the realization that there is more to you than your physical body, it can be confusing and even a bit overwhelming.  However, once you are able to consciously understand and recognize the difference between your physical and non-physical “bodies”, you will then be eager to explore all that you really are and the power that lies within.

Who you truly are ~ you are a physical and non-physical being.  The physical part of who you are is your physical body.  The non-physical part of who you are is vibrational energy.  Your physical self is connected to your Outer Life and your non-physical self is connected to your Inner Life.

What is your Inner Life?  Your Inner Life is the non-physical part of who you are ~ pure, positive, ever expanding vibrational energy.  It is the core and the connection to all that is, all that ever was, and all that will ever be.  Your Inner Life is where you will find the purest and truest “form” of love, inner-peace, balance, abundance, well-being, joy and happiness.  It is also the part of you that will live eternally.  

What is your Outer Life?  Your outer life is everything outside of your Inner Life. It is your physical body, friends, family, career, material possessions, just to name a few. It is your connection to the rest of the world on a physical level. It is within your outer life you will find stress, anxiety, sadness, pain, heartache, dis-ease, imbalance, depression, addictions, anger, hatred, lack and unhappiness. Yes, your outer life will in fact bring you happiness, but it will only be temporary if they are not initially “born” out of your Inner Life.

Ironically, you cannot have one without the other and you wouldn’t want to.  The problems and issues you experience in your outer life are what fuels your dreams and desires.  Without knowing what you don’t want, you wouldn’t know what you do want.  When the seed of your desires are planted from within your Inner Life it grows into something or someone (you) so magnificent and beautiful it will take your breath away. There is no question about this because your Inner Life will never give you what you do not want.

How do you live through your Inner Life?  You live through your Inner Life by living in the present moment.  When you focus yourself into the present moment, allowing yourself to feel and live the fullness of who you truly are, the things causing you to feel unhappy do not exist because they are not a part of your present moment experience. They are not a part of your Inner Life.

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within. Live, breathe and be your Inner Life. Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be. – Cindy Ortiz
