Finding Your Inner Jewel

We spend our lives looking for something, wanting something, and moving towards something. Whatever it is that we seek is always out there, tomorrow, next week, when you achieve this or that goal, or as soon as you lose ten pounds. What we so often appear to ignore, to forget, or to totally overlook, is that what we really seek is almost always inside of us. Not the position, the money, the fame or the honor, not the way we look, and not the place we are at, but the way we imagine we would feel if we had it, or were like that. That is what is inside of us.

The secret to understanding that is to recognize that loving yourself first, before looking for all the rest, will provide you with that feeling; will give you what you desire so fervently. Feeling good about yourself, feeling approved of (by yourself), feeling respected (by yourself) and feeling loved and cared for (by yourself) is the jewel we all have inside, if only we will look for it.

Numerous authors refer to this. George Moore says: A man travels the world in search of what he needs and returns home to find it. My favorite quote about this comes from T.S. Eliot in Little Gidding:

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.

Have you begun walking down the road to loving yourself?
