….we always have everything we need. When we fail to believe this, we suffer. (p.109)
How many times have I looked inward for the answer, seen it, and still kept searching? External validation doesn’t equal internal happiness…yet, it’s a hard cycle to break.
Today when I was doing my 68 Sun Salutations (more about why I’m not further along on Thursday) I asked my youngest to help me finish them out….because doing them with someone else somehow makes them easier to finish. I suffered and struggled through the first 67 and there it was…ease on number 68 with his little arms and legs moving beside me.
But, I need to listen better to myself because I am sure there are signs that I’m ignoring. This takes discipline….tapas
Are you still stuck in the cycle of seeking answers outside of yourself?
Do you know that the end to your suffering is within you?
What is always easier for you to do with someone else?
