I’m not sure why, but I felt moved to speak about fruitless searching:
Not the looking for the last green skittle kind of searching,
the kind of searching that takes you to external sources for love, joy, peace, whatever it is you seek.
It is both senseless and fruitless.
There may be fleeting success,
a moment of comfort,
but it will be just that – fleeting.
Unless you are able to accept that
you are the source of your love, joy, peace, abundance – whatever
it will always seem to be just out of reach.
It is my belief that
you are of the universe
and the universe is of you.
If the universe is the Source
of all love, joy, and peace
then you too, must be the Source
of your love, joy, and peace.
Your searching need not take you any further
than the front steps of your alter
and a simple prayer.
For all of the comfort that you receive from the tangible
will perish as sure as the tangible thing itself
will one day be no more.
Take a deep breath now.
Turn your gaze inward and allow all of that goodness to shine through.
Now that’s the stuff.
