So often, we search for answers to internal problems in the outside world. The solution, we acknowledge, could be either within us or found outside of us. Confronting the invisible part of ourselves, all too often evokes fear and insecurity and we choose instead to deny that our difficulties rise from the foundation of who we are. We prefer to look for external quick-fixes to cure our ailments. Apparently some of us choose to embrace the notion that outside (chemical) alterations affect our internal (spiritual) well being. Worse, we place our trust in the external fix, rather than see the blessing in the internal experience which teaches us a priceless lesson. We surrender our power to worldly forces and indulge in a self-induced scapegoat if the cure fails, instead of spending that precious energy addressing the true questions our pain raises.
Lost Inside, Searching Outside
New-thought philosophy purposefully
exploring life's spiritual inter-relationships,
sprinkled with a little history and words of wisdom.
The Bus of My Life
You see, I have this bus.
The bus of my life.
In it, rows of seats line up perfectly next to and behind one another.
The engine, mechanically tuned and timed, waits for me to nestle into the driver's seat and shift into gear.
But my bus is empty - or so I think.
