Everything I desire is within me.

Updated: Jan 21, 2021

When a new disciple came to the Master, he was subjected to the following examination:

“Do you know the one person who will never abandon you in the whole of your lifetime?”

“Who is it?” “You.”

“And do you know the answer to every question you may have?”

“What is it?” “You.”

“And can you guess the solution to every one of your problems?”

“I give up.” “You.”

We are born with everything we need for a life of fulfillment and success. But often we measure our love, joy, health, vitality and other positive qualities by comparing ourselves to someone or something else.

Perhaps thinking thoughts like I have a loving relationship but not as loving as my friends. Or I live in a nice house but not as big as my brother’s. Such comparison stem from object referral looking outside oneself for validation. But an abundant life is not about external comparison instead a life of fulfillment come from within. Through the knowledge that you were created with everything you need to be happy and successful and can access those seeds of abundance at anytime.

Currently all over the world many people are experiencing difficult times. When we experienced such setbacks, we sometimes feel like we’ll never achieve success. Yet in every perceived failure or setback is the seed of success. In every situation, we have new opportunities to find creative solutions for our problems. Redefine our priorities and explore other options. We begin to view our challenges more positively once we realize that we possess the power to focus our attention on new possibilities. And possibilities for abundance are endless. There are no limits to what we can have. Take the time to look at each situation that challenges you and find those seeds of success that will attract greater abundance into your life.

Everything I desire is within me.
