We search, search and search, yet we are still so very hungry. What are we searching for? Who are we searching for? Where are we going? If indeed there exists such a state of joy, peace and confidence, what is it about that state that will create in us the condition to remain fulfilled, content and anchored, daily? Is there in fact such a condition?
We search to ease our pain.
We search to ease our discomfort.
We search to get rid of our insecurities.
We search to quench our thirst for happiness.
We search to be filled with joy.
We search to find peace.
We search to find true love.
We are ever on this quest to fulfill this deep, fathomless, bottomless hunger, in our souls. In my search, I discovered that I was searching for myself. What I mean is, I was searching for my purpose in life. On the road to discovering myself, and who I am, I realized that the more I pulled away from all the noise and outside influence, the closer I got to purpose. I needed the courage to look and tap within me. When that happened, the happier, the stronger, the more confident, secure and peaceful I became. I realized that I have become wiser, steadier, bolder and more courageous. I smile, talk and laugh more. I am less inhibited, less fearful and not filled with anxiety.
Discovering who I am, what I am here for, has given me more hope, faith and the state of knowing that I have the power, in a humble way, to always land on my two feet. There is something about knowing what is within us; knowing what we are created with. I want you, my friend, to experience that state and condition. The knowledge of it will take you to heights of peace, love, joy and strength that you never thought possible. I cannot keep that from you. It would be selfish.
In that state of knowing, we touch and awaken purpose. When we continue to walk in our own purpose day by day, not trying to imitate and be like others, we start cultivating divinity within us. Divinity becomes our fort and anchor, so much so that we naturally become unshakable and unbeatable without trying, because now we know who we are, what our purpose is and where we are going. In this state we are no longer walking in empty, blind hunger, but in the fulfillment of continuously developing purpose and divinity within us. It is an illuminating, non-superficial, beautiful and wonderful thing!
We become less stressed and we reign in our emotions, and confront situations with wisdom, understanding, patience and insight; we think deeper and become less and less impulsive. Even when we are shaken up, we are confident that we will overcome, because we have awoken purpose and divinity within us, and they always find a way to bring us back to the top and land us on our feet. Discover your own purpose, cultivate and nurture your own soul and spirit, allow divinity in you to rise up, and your hunger will be quenched. It will cease. There, my friend, lies the secret to your joy, peace and confidence. In place of the fathomless and bottomless hunger within you, will be birthed what I discovered, and what I call, the endless and fulfilling, golden glow.
