“Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied with the life you’re living?” ~ Bob Marley.
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ~ Rumi.
We attract what we are. When our thoughts and intentions, our personalities and views in life, are similar or they resonate with each other then there is harmony, deep connection, and sense of communion which unites us both. And there is no point then in trying to find the right person or someone who can help us become better, because that is the ego always seeking outside for new experiences and relationships, seeking for something new which can bring entertainment to the emptiness inside.
Seeking without is seeking in the world for whatever we haven’t searched in the inside, it is a way to distance ourselves from the emptiness we fear inside, and it is definitely a way to escape the silence we fear within our true selves.
People seek all their lives, seek and seek, more shopping, more relationships, more children brought into this world, more traveling, more parties, more noise, add infinitum; however good or bad these may be, these are pleasures of life, and one must recognize in oneself first why are these needed. Am I seeking out there all these things and experiences because I am empty inside…?? Am I seeking these because I am unhappy and so I want to find happiness and a solution to the problems in my life…??
Maybe the solution to every little dilemma you have in life is within you, literally seeking within, getting used to the silence within, exploring the beyond within.
Ignoring your true self and covering it with relationships and things is just fooling yourself, which is just adding more thick mud to your emptiness and adding to your problems. And by doing this, you are not just damaging yourself further but you are damaging another person brought into your life.
You must love yourself first to love another. You must be successful and happy first to find success and happiness in the world. You must be the right person first to find the right person in the world.
Don’t be ignorant and foolish. Realize the truth within yourself first.
