Look inward, not outward

Seeking purpose? Seeking meaning? Seeking happiness? Seeking success? You were taught from a young age that these things are outside you, things to be acquired from someone or something else, a source other than you. Searching, seeking…driven with this understanding you look outward.

After a while you realise something quite profound. You find that these things are not outside you or beyond you. Rather, they are ‘of’ you, they cannot be bought, borrowed or delegated. They cannot be possessed second hand.

Finally you realise these things come from within. So you stop looking outward and start looking inward. What you find is bigger, brighter and clearer than anything you could have ever imagined. You find yourself.

Now the real journey to finding purpose, meaning, happiness and success can begin.
