We look out at the world and negotiate with it, relate to it. We try to know it because the more we know it, we’re told, the better we can negotiate it, the more we can control it. Some are sensitive to another possibility and are told that what they are searching for can only be found by looking inward. So we apply the same principles to this inward search. If we do it with enough effort and have enough discipline we’ll find what we couldn’t in the material world. If we turn the same process of progressive endeavor inward then we will find the inner peace that alluded us.
The difficulty with this is very very simple. There is no outer, there is no inner- only from the point of view of a false centre. There is no one to look into. What we search for is simple BEING. It has no boundary. It is nothing being everything. You are already whole and perfect. You are already home and always have been. There is no need to relate as you are all that is. There is a constant invitation to see that This is it. When the story of individual self collapses it is seen that it was a total dream and what we are is boundless unconditional love. This is completely beyond the mind.
