Finding ourselves

If I had advice to give anyone, it would be to be in a particular state of mind, and know what you want from life, because not only will your whole outlook change, but so too will how you see yourself.

I’m not sure how many of us get that close to knowing ourselves. The simple, uncomplicated life, the spiritual life, doesn’t seem to exist in this fast-paced world we live in. We forget what matters and who is important.

We must find happiness in the simple things, in our thoughts and in ourselves. Happiness depends on whom we’re asking, a simple question without a straightforward answer. If we were to put hand on heart and ask ourselves if we were happy, we would stumble to find the perfect answer.

We think we’re happy, we convince ourselves we are, but unless we deal with our issues and with our baggage, we can never be happy in the true sense.

As we go about our lives, we tend to look to find happiness in our careers and with our families, but inwardly those things cannot make us happy, unless we make ourselves happy.

The best way to find happiness is to look from the inside out. It’s not so much finding silence as paying attention to what is already there, through shifting our attention to the part of us that is constantly aware, the little voice inside of us that speaks.

The inner voice that is attached to an eternal presence is constantly with us, but we must listen. When we learn to anchor ourselves and channel our thoughts, we move with that rhythm and become aware of that inner stillness.

Only then will we connect with an eternal presence that continues to support and sustain us in our conscious thinking.

  1. I often wonder why most of us exchange simplicity for meaningless things, even though our minds and bodies are ravaged by those choices.

    And, the truth be told, we are assured to die in a humiliating way if we fail to see what really matters, who really matters and what’s truly important.

    Your blog offers an antidote and attacks a disease that everyone of us is suffering from today.

    1. Awww thanks Tim. Yes I couldn’t agree more. I’m not sure of the real reason myself, but it stands to reason that disillusionment, jealousy, money and culture. Material possessions; the things we hold too much importance to, tend to come before people.

      Then we have stress and self-esteem and confidence issues that interfere with the way we see and deal with others. The irony is that we are the antidote, but I’m not sure how many of us get that.

      We tend to look outside first, then us second.

  2. Finding happiness eludes most of us and we shuffle off from this life without the benefit of finding the peace that happiness brings.

    What really matters is who we are and how we relate to those we come into contact with along our journey. Listening to ourselves must be the first step on that journey.

    1. Thanks. What you describe is something I have seen first hand. You’re absolutely right and yes I agree.
