You are your Destination

We are all ultimately seekers in this external world.  We spend our lives searching for answers, for ways to be fulfilled, for ways to be content.   And we can find moments of contentment in the physical world, and in the various states of mind.  However, in the end, all these things are of a transient nature.  However good or bad, the physical object will not be with you forever, the state of mind will eventually diminish.  And when those moments pass, where do you look to reconnect with that sense of peace?  Do you continue with your search for that next thing, that next moment?  To find that steady sense of grounding and peace, all those paths will eventually lead you back to what’s within.  You are the seeker as well as your destination.  You hold that space of eternal clarity & boundless love to keep you grounded with all the comings and goings of life, through all of the highs & the lows.  No matter how turbulent or how still, you can be the witness from within, knowing that everything that exists outside is temporary.  It does not define you, it does not alter the infinite energy within.

Imagine a pond of water and then imagine a rock being thrown in that creates ripples that radiate out, disturbing the stillness of the pond.  You are that pond of water, steady & grounded no matter what rocks are thrown your way, no matter how many ripples are created upon the surface.  The ripples may cloud your reflection at times, but with time that too will subside.  The spaciousness, the steady foundation remains firmly rooted underneath.  So be immersed in your life, but remain present to the power that resides within you, that resides within all and find the faith to know that it is everything that you will ever need.

    Another great piece, Sheila, on the importance of continual introspection in recognizing what is real and what is not, on the path of spiritual journey to discover and stay connected to your inner self.

    Reminds me of a line from a poem by “Rabindra Nath Tagore”
    “May I never lose the bliss of the touch of the One in the play of the many”
