What we truly want

Ultimately, contentment is more a shift in attitude than a change in circumstances. – Linda Dillow


What do we truly want and where are we headed? These questions are at the heart of all our desires. When we buy things or undertake any life action based on our desires, we are really trying to uncover ourselves. We’re trying to understand and comprehend our place in the Universe. Now there’s a more direct way, a way that can be more fulfilling and joyous.

And that is to be more conscious of what you do, what you desire and why……

You’ve heard of prime numbers but have you heard of the 2 prime questions or the 2 Prime Quests!? They are:

  1. Who Am I: The quest towards self-knowledge. What keeps me going? Why? What do I really seek? It’s a never ending process to uncover bits of yourself. It’s possible to be very effective in this quest if we’re conscious of our driving motivations.
  2. Why am I here: A quest towards understanding our place in the Universe. Why are things the way they are? Here you try and understand how you fit into the grand scheme of things…….

So what does this have to do with the quote above? When we begin to know ourselves and our place, a certain contentment starts to replace the constant drive to get something or get someplace. The quest to achieve continues but in a very different way………….

Recommendation: Finding Your Life Purpose by Eckhart Tolle

A unified you!

Be gentle with yourself, learn to love yourself, to forgive yourself, for only as we have the right attitude toward ourselves can we have the right attitude toward others. – Wilfred Peterson

At the deepest level, how you are with yourself can’t be very different from how you are with others. If it is different then you’re creating a disjointed you; in other words you create a dysfunctional you, a self that’s conflicted about how to relate to everyone out there. A self that is confused.

The way out is to be honest with yourself. What does honesty have to do with anything you might ask? We must become aware of what we think of our own selves, as much as what we think of others. The two are inseparable.

So start by being gentle and loving with yourself, watch what you say to yourself or about yourself, notice this all day. Don’t second guess yourself, don’t short change yourself. And then if you’re being honest you’ll automatically be like that with everyone else.

You will start creating a unified you!
