The Real Source of Great Discoveries

posted by Guy Finley

The mind that wants to know the truth of something, and that’s willing to do the work required for such a discovery, will inevitably find that for which it is searching; our highest aspirations are reflections of unrealized possibilities. All scripture, from the East to the West, confirms this timeless truth: We need only ask, and it shall be given.

But the real question before us isn’t how these individuals came to make their discoveries. We already know that the birth of all things great and true requires discipline, patience, and sacrifice. Rather, what we wish to know is where did they find this elevated understanding? In what place are we to seek and search for the timeless laws that alone reveal, and then release us from, our former limitations? The answer is surprising at first glance, but ultimately the most freeing discovery one can make: all that we need to know to grow beyond who we currently are is already a part of our true nature. English poet and playwright, T.S. Eliot, summarizes this idea for us:

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our
exploring will be to arrive where we started, and know the place
for the first time.
