We yearn for things, don’t we?
That house: “If I lived there, I’d be truly happy”
Her hair/figure/face: “If I looked like that, I wouldn’t have a care in the world”
A partner more…you know, just better than the one we have: “If my partner was more romantic/caring/wealthy/sensitive/sexy/all of the above, I would be so much more content”
But what if, now stay with me here…What if all of these imagined ideal people, things and scenarios were just signposts, metaphors if you like, for what’s missing within ourselves?
What would that mean?
Let me put it to you like this:
You don’t need much of what you think you need to be happy in this life of yours
The things you desire, want and yearn for are simply invitations to look within yourself and create a life more authentically you from the inside out.
Here’s some evidence: I’m not sure if you’ve noticed this, but how many times have you gotten that new yearned-for thing and then after a fairly brief period of elation, joy and fulfillment, you go back to feeling the way you did before you had it and you begin yearning for something else?
It’s happened to me many times and I’m telling you, it’s better to look within and discover ways you can creatively express yourself in the world.
Find that fulfillment and enjoyment in your work, creative pursuits or in being of service to others rather than turning your attention to the next new purchase, relationship or holiday.
Enough with the writing…
Gift yourself ten minutes now to listen to this very nice guided meditation for activating your creative centre; your sacral chakra. I recorded it just the other day down by the ocean and the sounds of the water are quite beautiful.
