We look for happiness, more meaning, success, love, answers to our questions… And it is almost indelibly ingrained into our mind that these are to be found elsewhere… Whereas in reality, all the answers are within us and our mission is simply to uncover and embrace them. The trick is that it takes a long time and even more importantly, it is a practice, not a quick-fix solution…Miles Davis summed it up perfectly when he said:
“Sometimes you have to play a long time to be able to play like yourself” – Miles Davis
I practice being me every day and I’m making some progress. Life really makes more sense this way. I can only encourage you to join me on this mission of uncovering and accepting our true self, as one cannot be genuinely happy and content without it!
