To those that have yet to find peace and fulfilment in their lives - in essence we are all the same, that peace is within us all.
When we have felt love, peace, joy and fulfilment, we have felt it within ourselves, not outside by whatever seems to have enabled it to be experienced.
When we have not felt it, maybe because external circumstances are not the way we want them to be, it is still within us - sometimes it takes just a sigh to feel it again, sometime we cannot. Maybe we are not then able to look in the right place. Maybe, like most things in life, we need help and guidance.
So who will show us, where should we look and how - and maybe important to some, how much will it cost, how much effort will it take, how much will be have to sacrifice? and will it actually work for me?
It seems maybe too good to believe, that peace is possible; we have our doubts. so much in this world has promised so much but has already let us down.
So when somebody comes along and says, listen, I can show you, we are so reluctant.
Even though we believe so much advertising, so many empty promises and even though if somebody we know and trust says "taste this", "smoke that", go there, listen to that, read that, watch that film, we so readily take their advice.
Religions don't always work - they often cause people to live in fear or under strict rules: much of science too, is a religion, maybe not with so much fear or so many rules, but requiring beliefs and, a shame, that so often those beliefs do not give us the peace and fulfilment we want.
Think abut it, why do we do what we do, go where we go, follow instructions and ambitions - where are we hoping to go, what are we looking for? Peace? Joy? Love? Freedom? Satisfaction? Knowledge? just how far will we go, just how long a journey would we make, just how much would we do, or even pay, for those things, those feelings and experiences.
So if somebody says, listen, I tell you in truth - this is the way to go - and it costs nothing but a little effort and patience - to be shown how to achieve all that, to find what we want, what everybody wants, that is already within just waiting to be experienced again - who will listen?
