From the time we are born we are taught to look outside of ourselves for answers…every answer, all answers, regarding everything. Never (OK, rarely) are we taught to look within for anything…anything. We’re taught to depend on someone else for most everything…answers, support, acceptance, Love, completion, etc. That ‘someone’ can be a parent, teacher, husband, wife, clergy…society. And if we stand back and take a look at what is going on in our lives we can see that each and every situation basically points us in the same direction…right back into our Self.

As I drove home tonight a song cycled through my IPod…Bless the Broken Road by Rascal Flats. Although it sounds like the person singing the song is singing to yet another person…step back and sing the song to your Soul…

“I set out on a narrow way many years ago hoping I would find true love along the broken road. But I got lost a time or two wiped my brow and kept pushin’ through. I couldn’t see how every sign pointed straight to you, that every long lost dream led me to where you are. Others who broke my heart they were like northern stars pointing me on my way into your loving arms. This much I know is true that God blessed the broken road that led me straight to you.

I think about the years I’ve spent just passin’ through. I’d like to have the time I lost and give it back to you. But you just smile and take my hand, you’ve been there, you understand. It’s all part of a grander plan that is comin’ true.

Now I’m just rollin’ home into my lover’s arms. This much I know is true, that God blessed the broken road that led me straight to you.”

Everything, every situation, every person you come across literally gives you the opportunity to move into yourself. Take it. Take the opportunity to know yourself from the inside.

Any worth while guru, teacher, master, etc will always push you right back into yourself. There isn’t anything they can teach you about yourself…only how to get into yourself so you can experience it for yourself first hand.

Stop looking for the answer outside of yourself. It’s all on the inside. ALL OF IT. Every single, solitary THING that you are looking for on the outside exists within you…everything! Take a moment to explore what you Truly are. Take a moment to actually Be in your Soul. Take a deep breath; relax your muscles and just feel. Feel the expansion of ALL that you really are.

OK, so nobody taught you how to do that. That doesn’t mean you can’t do it, it just means you don’t know how. So…close your eyes, focus on your breath…every time you exhale relax your muscles even more…allowing the energy that you are to flow through you…easily. Sit in this space. Feel this space. Experience this space. This is You….and it will take you where ever you need to go.
