Surest Investment is Self Knowledge and Inner Stability

“`We are often our own prisoner, We limit ourselves and give in to things that don’t align with who we truly are, out of fear.

We fear abondoning our past because we have invested so much in It. We fear disappointing others and we end up disappointing ourselves.

We lie to ourselves so we can continue to believe in the illusion that satisfaction comes from external things. We build a comfort zone outside of ourselves and neglect our inner space.

We fear sitting alone in silence and listening to ourselves, because we can’t stand hearing the non sense we have repeated over the years,

But we know better now, we have enough hindsight to see that the surest investment is self knowledge and inner stability that is independant of the exterior world,

In crazy times like ours, meditation, presence and introspection are the key to embracing the exponentially changing world,

Wishing you all courage and awareness.

To be Happy and at Peace

To be at peace and content is not difficult for those who have no preferences. When likes and dislikes are not present everything becomes clear and simple. Make the smallest distinction, however, and you will be exiled from the realm of eternal happiness which is your birthright.

If you wish to be happy and at peace, then hold no opinions for or against anyone or anything. To set up what you like against what you dislike is a conditioned habit of the mind. It is a recipe for misery. When we allow things to be as they are, things allow us to be as we are, and the peace and happiness that is our nature emerges effortlessly.
