“This universe is not outside of you. Look inside yourself; everything that you want, you already are.” By Rumi
Thoughts that feel like beauty and happiness wash over me whenever I read this quote. I feel it is telling us the key to being truly happy. Perhaps living without want is just part of it. Being truly grateful for what we have is another part, but there’s something much more fundamental here. It offers a way to be positive about everything and to build an authentic self-esteem and self-acceptance.
I invite you to close your eyes, quiet your mind, and meditate on the connections between what you want and what you are. If you are persistent, you will are attracting everything you want, including some surprises about the stuff you don’t want, and why you might really want it.
