The key to authentic joy cannot be found anywhere in the external. It has nothing to do with chasing after outer success symbols or with gaining external validation. These may lead to temporary short-term highs, yet they quickly burn out leaving us craving for yet another “thing” to fill that inner void. Only when our lives become about a soulful uncovering of our true nature, the qualities of our Authentic Self, do we come to find that within us is an infinite and overflowing wellspring of joy, bliss, excellence and fulfillment that can never be found in the without. As you know, we are not here to get anything from the world, but to bring to the world all that has already been given. This is how we come to find that whatever we may have thought was missing in our lives has been within us all along, waiting to be recognized, embodied, and experienced. So today, commune with that vast treasure house that is within you. Look for ways to give from the abundant wellspring of your soul, and free yourself to be all that you are truly called to be.
