600 Personal Development Exercises
do one a day - every day!
I seem to spend so much time searching
for meaning and looking for happiness.
Perhaps I need to start in a different place.
For when I see myself
at the centre of everything,
it’s easy to lose my way.
The first step I think, is to go deeper within myself
to that place of nothingness.
It is here that I find all that I need.
For here is the reservoir of love,
where I can become, at the same time,
both all powerful and yet powerless.
When I then act, or talk, or interact from this place
I do so from a position of all-ness rather than self.
By trusting in love, I become one with love.
For all becomes possible,
when it is no longer about
my narrow definition of self, or purpose.
I find the meaning of all in this place within me,
in power and powerlessness,
in all-ness and nothingness.
For I am no longer separate from everything,
adrift on the sea.
I am the sea.
