11 Seek Within
Do not look for love.
That is an impossible quest.
Instead, be loving and the right person will find you.
Do not change for the sake of another’s acceptance.
He or she may not give it, despite of your efforts.
Instead, accept yourself fully,
and those who appreciate your uniqueness will gather around you.
Do not place happiness in things outside of yourself.
Your outer world constantly shifts and changes.
Instead find your happiness within
and free yourself from circumstances.
Seek what is within you, what cannot be found in other people, places, or things.
Only when we look within shall we ever find what we seek.
In that moment the entire Universe will shift,
and what you have discovered within will be reflected back to you—your inner and outer worlds will become harmoniously one.
