Do you want to be truly happy? Are you filled with pain and suffering? Do you blame everyone and everything for your unhappiness or misery? Are you trying to please everyone except yourself? Are you tired of trying to be happy? Do you seek happiness through relationships or material possessions? Have you tried making changes only to find yourself laced with feelings of anger, frustration, stress, or worse yet, hopelessness?
Sadly, this is a common way to live. Most humans after being born into this physical world become distant and distracted from their inner life. This is no one’s fault, it is just the way of the world; the way of those who taught us as we were growing up. However, in time, if the distance and distractions from your inner life do not dissipate, you will eventually begin to feel it in a variety of ways. It could come in the form of uneasiness, anxiety, loneliness, addictions, self-inflicted pain, anger, hatred, depression or chronic unhappiness.
What is your inner life? Your inner life is the core of who you really are. It is the center of all that is and all that you are. It is the pure and true “one with” connection to Source (God, Buddha, Universe, Inner-Being). It is within your inner life you will find comfort, peace, well-being, faith, hope, abundance, unconditional love, joy and true happiness. It is where you are unbreakable and powerful in your life’s creations. Your inner life is where all your dreams and desires are waiting for you; waiting for you to trust in the power of your inner life so they may manifest into your outer life.
What is your outer life? Your outer life is everything outside of who you really are. It is your physical body, your friends, family, career, material possessions, problems, illness and heartache. It is your connection to the rest of the world but only on a physical level. It is within your outer life you will find the exact OPPOSITE of your inner life. It is where you have NO pure and true connection to all that is or all that you are. Yes, your outer life may bring you happiness from time to time but it will only be temporary. When we look outside ourselves for the things we want they either never come to fruition or they leave us feeling sad, lonely and unfulfilled.
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 the desires that reside within your inner life. The seed of the “unwanted” is planted from your outer life into your inner life. It is then within your inner life the seed is nurtured, cared for, loved and born into something or someone (you) so magnificent and beautiful it will take your breath away, leaving you wanting more. There is no question about this because your inner life will never give you what you do not want.
Who you really are…..you are Source energy – pure, positive, constantly moving energy. You are all that is and all that will ever be. You are Source. You are God. You are Buddha. You are the Universe. You are and will always be Eternity.
If true and lasting happiness is what you are seeking, 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……
