I Know It

I also know, whatever it is, it is more likely to be found inside of me than from any external source.

If I could only figure out what it is... 

Well, actually, as I write that I realize I know what it is, what I need is to figure out how to give it to myself and quit waiting for someone else to come along and give it to me. 

And even knowing all this, I just don't see how it is possible.

How the heck do you give that to yourself in a viable way?

Oh, I am reading alright, Mehameha. A lot. Sometimes the things I read actually contridict each other which adds to my confusion. :)<br />

I try to relax and be good in the moment and understand that what is going on in my life at any given time is as it is supposed to be for some reason.<br />

One thing I have learned for sure is that I don't know all of anything. :)

I've always agreed with Deepak Chopra's teachings. "When the student is ready, the teacher appears." The teacher for sure is within. Even when you hear advice from others it may not reach you until you are ready to fully understand it ba<x>sed on what else is going on in your life. If you listen to songs at one point in your life, then listen to them years later, there are parts that have greater meaning that didn't before. So keep searching and re reading things you already think you know. The answers you seek do lie within and they will appear when the student (you) is ready to hear them. Fascinating stuff. Good post.

Blocks in perception. Yes, I can see that. Perhaps I have some of those too...

I feel the same way you do. Sometimes when I meditate I feel a sense of peace and fulfillment and that sense that all that I need is within me. But it's hard for me to hold onto it when an unforgiving reality comes knocking at my door or e mailing me (hi, dad) or calling me trying to sell me something. Perhaps I just have some blocks in my perception that I need to address.

Exactly. For instance, I can't give myself a backrub when I slept the wrong way...
