“When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.”
― Ralph Ellison,
No need to deny or fool ourselves. Everything we do we do because we want more money, more food, more attention, we want more of everything. We need more and more to satisfy our greed. As humans, we have this weak immunity when it comes to materialistic wealth, we are driven by others’ “success”, we let others define our own “being” in life. Then what? Then the intense feeling of alienation and isolation takes over us , we surrender quite easily and want to escape from things and never look back for a while. Feeling disconnected we tend to look for a shelter where we can stand alone with thoughts in our minds. Seeking the truth, curing our doubts, overcoming our fears….etc Well, we are the real savers of our souls , aren’t we? Keeping this in mind , how well do we know our motivational triggers? Love? Food? Sex? Whatever it is, make sure that they are all identified by your own taste and interest.
“At the center of your being
you have the answer;
you know who you are
and you know what you want.”
― Lao Tzu
The move we make towards attaining self-realization should be setting our criteria in order to develop our inner strength and power. Building an inner power means building an inner city. Cities are chaotic and so are we. Each city has its own unique character and so do we. Similar to cities, through messiness comes harmony. Internalized unpleasant feelings and experiences transform into an active force which leads us to an undiscovered path, the path of “being me” . Knowing that no one else can restore our soul and our very being as they never feel our internal vibrations like we do, it is wiser to recognize our own motives and create alternatives to make our way to inner balance.
“It takes courage…to endure the sharp pains of self discovery rather than choose to take the dull pain of unconsciousness that would last the rest of our lives.”
― Marianne Williamson,
Although we are not aware yet, there is a city growing within us.
