All I Seek Is Within

Like many who are reading this article, I have been participating in Oprah and Deepak’s 21 Day Meditation Challenge, which is all about the love that exists within and around us at all times. Sometimes it begins my day and sometimes it ends it. Either way, I find myself drifting on the tones of his soothing voice. This morning, our focus was Miraculous Independence.

Today’s Centering Thought:

All I seek is within.
Our Sanskrit mantra:

Om Bhavam Namah
I am absolute existence. I am a field of all possibilities.
We have been taught that what we desire in terms of success, love, worthiness and value are external when in truth, all that we could ever want is already a seed within us, waiting to burst forth in beauty and magnificence. Deepak quotes a line from the movie Jerry Maguire that some find romantic, but makes me want to gag and that is “You complete me.” We are not incomplete beings, but rather whole unto ourselves and when we live in that state, it makes it that much easier to connect with other whole beings without an obligation to fix, save, heal or cure anyone. As a recovering co-dependent who lately has been coming to terms with what I have perceived to be my own sense of fragmentation, this meditation could not have been more fortuitously timed.
Perhaps some feel that makes us self absorbed or ego-centric. Quite the contrary, since when I know that I am able to glean treasures from within, I have that much more to share with you and the rest of the world. Call it God-Spark or Divine Love; it is what we are. From that well of Infinite Possibility, we can bring up the sweetest water imaginable. From a practical day to day perspective, it means that I am less likely to be ‘gived out’, since the Source never runs dry. As a Reiki Master, I have learned that the life force energy comes through me and not from me. In that way, it is always available and I need only to call upon it to be offered to myself or anyone else who might request it.
Such is it with love.
