To see them you need to stop looking for what you do not have and be grateful for what you already have. A position of gratitude and no resistance.
This changes us from a mind-obsessed position of resistance and disappointment searching constantly for more to a soul-filled position of peace and calm, awareness and acceptance. No more fighting, no more looking for something to fulfil us.
All that we need we have and all that we need to grow is there if we stop looking and just see.
When we seek to the exterior world for anything, whether it’s help, attention, love, kindness or any form of fulfilment, it is because we are not at peace within.
Seeking to others only exacerbates the situation, as we not only place a burden to others for our own internal lack, additionally, we increase disappointment levels within when others undoubtedly fail to meet our needs and expectations.
If we focus on creating our own fulfilment within, which means letting go of our ego and mind streams of repetitive negative thought patterns, then we only rely on our own soul for joy and contentment.
We learn to just be.
Our natural conscious state of being, in this present moment, is always peaceful within and we lack nothing or desire nothing from others. We are truly ourselves and at peace within.
We can of course gain joy and help or whatever from others, but if we are at peace within first, then there is no burden on others and no expectation that will only lead to disappointment.
Peace within brings our joy and light to ourselves and those we encounter.
