The Seeker: Journey to the Greatness Within

posted by Guy Finley

The need for whatever it may be that we’re drawn to is the yet to be realized presence within us of that very thing to which we are drawn. This means that no matter how distant seems our guiding star, or how isolated we may feel in our journey towards its light, these higher truths we’re learning would have us know otherwise; we are not alone. Even more importantly, just as a small filing of iron must fly to the magnet that pulls upon it, so too must those who are drawn to the Divine eventually answer its call.

Following are just a few of some of the innermost thoughts and feelings of inspired seekers who have gone before you. Some names you may know; others you will be glad to meet!

By the very thing you seek.
To know when to stop
To know when you can get no further
By your own action,
This is the right beginning!

—Lao Tzu (ca. 570–490 BCE, China)

God made man so that He should seek the Lord.
—Acts, New Testament (55–95)

This thing we tell of can never be found by seeking, yet
only seekers find it.

—Abu Yazid Al-Bistami (804–874, Bastam, Iran)

Who seeks, and will not take when once ‘tis offered, shall
never find it more.

—William Shakespeare (1564–1616, England)

Happiness does not come into being when you seek it; it is a
byproduct; it comes into being when there is goodness, when
there is love, when there is no ambition, when the mind is
quietly seeking out what is true.

—J. Krishnamurti (1895–1986, India)
