Slowly Surely

The problem with introspection is that it has no end-

Happiness, true happiness? Lies inside each of us, yet we often look to other people and “things” to raise our spirits and to bring a smile to our face. This endless search for happiness outside of ourselves can be contributed to a void within us.

Show of hands: Have you ever purchased a nifty yoga or running accessory to make you happy? If we pause for a moment and reflect on our actions (as noble as they may be) they show us that we have yet to fully embrace the self-love that is necessary to feel whole on a daily basis. If your passion is running, yoga, working out, whatever etc. Do you have a parasitic relationship with it?

The conversation I really want to explore over the next few posts: Is your outward passion for other “things” driving down your self-love and leaving a void within you?

Notes:

An unbalanced relationship will cause many things in life to fall apart, and it happens all too often. Cultivating happiness within yourself, true happiness, lies hidden inside each one of us.

    That’s what Rumi told me… remember?

    Better had Rumi made a step-by-step manual instead of poetry and prose and get away with all his adorable mysticism… … but then I would have been way too spoiled, huh?

    I’m totally guilty of this. I don’t shop nearly as much as other girls I know, BUT I do think there are times when I immediately turn to something that’s outside of me for satisfaction…

  4. Show of hands? Me. Me. Me. Great post.

    And yes I have actually purchased many exercise gadgets, gotten all inspired to use them and then found them too much trouble… Never to be used again.

    I love this post because it says so much of what I am finding at the moment. Thank you

    Thank you for your post that illustrates that our life can be richer without accumulating all those ‘things’ we believe we cannot live without and then ignore after a short period. I’ve been guilty of this.

      I’m raising my hand as well, guilty. This topic is uncomfortable to talk about although when we do, it can be very empowering to us spiritually. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you are having a beautiful day, take care!

    I love the opening line here: “The problem with introspection is that is has no end.” I find that the truth of this pops up SO OFTEN when blogging. Like many people in the blogosphere, I have a blog to post random thoughts and collect whatever useful ideas that need development for later on. And that can lead to a lot of annoying introspection. Great reminder from this blog.
