“Everything in the Universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.” - Rumi
I love watching people. The way they move. The expressions on their faces. I like to listen to the words they speak, while hearing everything that is unsaid. I see the pain behind their eyes. I recognize the joy that they’ve hidden away in their hearts for safe keeping. I am fascinated by human beings. Through them, I see me.
Every person in your life offers you a glimpse of your true self. The person who irritates you most, is holding a mirror, reflecting the nature of you. Genius in another can only be identified by those who posses the same brilliance.
This may sound like rubbish. You may not believe it and you don’t have to. But I offer you to sit with the thought for a little while. Look at it from behind. Underneath. Out front. Overhead.
Think about the people in your life and how they make you feel. Look within to see the parts of them that resonate in you.
Connection is visceral. It may appear to be external, but relationships begin within.
Every person in your life is there by invitation. You have extended an offer (maybe unintentionally) for these people to inhabit your physically and emotional space. You are the reason that they’re here and why they stay.
You are not separate from your environment. All that “is” and ever “was” resides inside of you. You are comprised of the molecules that make up the stars that light up the night sky. Your being is designed by the very same atoms that are responsible for the vastness of the ocean. You are everything and everything is you.
The answers to every question that you could ever ask is inside of you. There isn’t a single solution to be discovered outside of your own being. Life is essentially a journey in self-discovery. That is HUGE!
What do you want to know?
Who do you want to be?
How far are you willing to go to become your best self?
