“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.” – Carl Jung
I think if we all took the time to look inside of ourselves we might somehow find what we are looking for.
It starts from within you know? Yeah, it helps to have people bring out the best qualities in you but as an observer here, I sense a lot of despair and anger.
Angry because people are not happy, perhaps. Angry because of things they cannot change. I’m not happy at this very moment. I’m content and serene though and that’s good enough for me because it’s not what I normally feel. In other words, beggars can’t be choosers when it come to positive feelings. Especially, if you are like me and don’t experience them that often. Now, is this because of someone else’s existence in my life or is it because I finally answered some of those burning questions from within? 50/50 I believe.
We are all dreamers deep down, opting to wonder and contemplate over doing anything definitive because we can control our lives through fantasy. Reality is like stepping in a pile of “it” sometimes and in today’s society of “Beauty is everything!”, people are not comfortable with who they are. Might be a big reason why so many on-line relationships don’t work.
“When will I find Love?”, “Where is Mr./Mrs. Right?”, “Why am I alone?” – all questions whose answers cannot be given by an assembly of varying personalities on a web site.
Those that say “Not interested in people with baggage” have more baggage than the very people they’re hoping to avoid, they just haven’t addressed it yet. They’re in denial. Everyone has baggage and issues. Understanding, willingness to learn and acceptance is crucial…not to mention an open and honest line of communication between two people.
It’s true. Only when we open ourselves wide can we even attempt to put the pieces back together. Sometimes though, it really helps to have another person hold up the box cover so we can remember what the finished product looks like…
When it becomes clear, it hits you like a freight train…and then you can finally step back and bask in the beauty of it all.
But step number one is a doozy…
