Those who had undergone deep soul searching would have realized …
They actually need nothing from this physical world.
The reason is … ALL that they will ever need lies within themselves.
The source of happiness, courage, compassion, love, etc. is truly found inside every individual.
Wanting on the other hand is an act of a human being who is not fully aware of his own existence and divinity.
Due to the belief of lack by one’s ego , the human being tries to attain “desired states of emotion” via purchasing material objects, accumulating titles, acquiring memberships,etc.
Such acts only create temporary states of fulfillment but in the end, the wanting surfaces again -causing endless cycles of searching for something that could help compensate the imagined lack in oneself.
One of the greatest truths of life, is that our soul is adequate on all counts. The conditioning of society is the chief reason as to why one chooses the passive self of insufficiency. Advertisements usually project a sense of inadequacy with it’s viewers causing them to want what the vendors are selling. Governments too, inject fear into the masses, deceiving them to continuously vote for them.
Now, more than ever, people should start to obtain answers away from external sources. The path to enlightenment is … the road leading inward.
In truth, we are more magnificent than we could ever imagine.
Spending moments of silence each day, reflecting on the inner self helps us to re-connect with our powerful Source of energy.
Only then, do we realize, we are perfect beings of light – needing nothing but only wanting something when we shift our consciousness back to being just a human.
So, ultimately the following question begs to be answered:
Who do we choose to be?
