“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ~Rumi
We must become our own seekers. No one knows your journey better than you! We will meet other people along the way who can help guide you, but do not be mistaken that you are the one that creates your destiny. When we learn to become our own seeker we learn to depend on ourself for everything we need. We learn to fall a little more in love with ourself.
By taking the time to seek for yourself you discover who you are on a deeper level. You open up parts of yourself that bring you closer to your heart. You smile not because you have fallen in love with someone else—you have fallen in love with yourself.
Through seeking you transform. You learn to use your emotions and your thoughts as a tool to help guide you, not create anxiety, stress and tension. Our human body is here as a tool for each one of us to learn how it works, how it feels, how it thinks and how all together these tools can bring you peace and happiness.
We are all made of the same parts, we are no different from each other. When we go on a journey of seeking ourself we begin to see and feel this clearly. There is no journey that is better than another, it’s an individual and it all depends on how far you want to go. There’s no right or wrong way to seek, just come with an open mind and an open heart. The journey will take you from there.
By seeking you no longer run away from yourself, you make peace with yourself. You no longer fight for the life you thought you were suppose to have and you accept what you have with gratitude. You still feel hurt and sadness, but you don’t let it rule your life. By becoming your own seeker you learn to fall in love over and over and over again.
We’re all seeking love, every single one of us. But the love we are really seeking doesn’t come externally–it comes internally. We won’t really know love until we become love ourself. How can we expect to love someone else if we don’t know how to love ourself first? This is a seekers journey.
Don’t look to another person to validate you, love you or make you feel like you’re enough. This is your role as a seeker. To be able to live your life as a whole person, not a broken person looking for parts from other people, external things or delusional thinking. It takes a lot of strength to heal yourself. To not run or hide away from your life but to face it with an open heart even when some days it feels to hard to bare.
Seek you heart back. Take your own journey. Walk your own path and do not look back–just take one step at a time and move forward without judgement, just compassion for yourself and the journey you live.
By seeking you understand that every moment is teaching you to be a little kinder, a little braver and giving you a little more courage to open your heart to yourself and the world again. Let it teach you to let go, but to also seek love over and over again.
