Many times in my life I have heard the inner voice tell me that I have all that I need within me to succeed. This is something that the great poet Rumi told us as well. Inside each of us is what we need to bring out in order to grow. Imagine if you will a seed, if you split the seed open what do you see? Nothing that you would think contains a plant but, given the right environment what is inside the seed will come out and grow into a mighty tree.
“Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.” – Rumi
Sometimes it seems that you have no power and you can’t go on. If you look at yourself then you see that you are made of stars. You have within you the fire and passion of thousands of stars burning bright. That should empower you. Ask yourself to harness that star energy within you and prepare to be surprised.
“I have lived on the lip of insanity, wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door. It opens. I’ve been knocking from the inside.” – Rumi
Everyone is looking for reasons and it drives them crazy; but sometimes the reason isn’t something external. Find your own reasons for living because life is what you make of it. Now, it may seem like a stretch that I get this from that quote, however, life experiences has shown that we make our own reasons and our own way in this world. What reasons can you find inside for doing what you do? Are they good ones, if not make better decisions.
“You wander from room to room Hunting for the diamond necklace That is already around your neck!” – Rumi
Often times you will find that you have had the treasure that you seek all along. You see often times we become so blinded by the search that we forget to look within. Seek within if you do not see your treasure without. Sometimes, like Dorothy, we have the way home with us, we just need to open up our eyes.
“Why are you so enchanted by this world, when a mine of gold lies within you?” – Rumi
While the world is a wondrous place have you thought about just letting your imagination go exploring. Some people are making their dreams happen by tapping into their imagination. Create ideas and let them out, you may never know how much gold you can find in your ideas. Read some of James Altucher’s books like Choose yourself. It has plenty of examples.
“There is a fountain inside you. Don’t walk around with an empty bucket.” – Rumi
Fill your bucket, every day. You can find that your life is more fulfilling when you fill yourself from within.
