Look within my dear.

Look deeply.

The answers are always there.

Inside.

The time that it takes to travel outside of oneself is much more laborious and long than the journey inward to the shores of your wisdom.

Take the time

Make the time

To listen

and you will learn that everything you seek

calls to you from within

It is all already there inside of you

You have enough compassion to water the drought of the world with your tears

Your smile shines across the globe like a new born sun

The stars reflect back to you your own known mystery in a language decoded through Silence

The translation is clear

You are the one

You are the one

You are the one

You’ve been searching for.

 "We do not meditate only to relax a little and experience some peace. We meditate to unfold our inner being. ... Meditation on the self is not difficult. The real secret of meditation is shaktipat, the inner awakening that takes place through contact with a Siddha Guru. Within every human being lies a great and divine energy. The Indian scriptures refer to it by different names, such as shakti (supreme energy) or chiti (universal consciousness), and when it resides within a human body, this conscious energy is known as kundalini. This inner power is the same creative force that is responsible for the creation, sustenance, and withdrawal of the world. ... it is Consciousness which forms the ground, or canvas on which the material universe is drawn."

Swami Muktananda, Meditate p. 10-11  

Meditate

"In the Upanishads there is a question: What do human beings want? The answer is that we want happiness. Everything we do, we do for the sake of happiness.

We seek that happiness through our work, through our friends and family, through art and science, through food, drink, entertainment. For happiness, we perform all the activities of daily life, and this is why we keep expanding our material world.

 

Inside us lies divine happiness, the same happiness we are looking for in the world. If we think about the joy we derive from different activities, we will realize that we experience happiness not in the activities, but within ourselves.

 

For example, when you look at a beautiful picture, where do you feel pleasure, in the picture or in yourself? When you eat a delicious meal, do you experience satisfaction in the food or in yourself? When you meet a friend and feel joy, is that joy in your friend or in yourself?

 

The truth is that the joy you find in all these things is simply a reflection of the joy of your own inner Self.” Meditate, p. 1, Swami Muktananda
