Divine Self

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 10:00 am

It’s difficult for some people to find the life within because they are too busy pursuing the life without.

Eventually, that search comes to a dead end and many don’t recognize they are there until at death’s door.

You would think this group would be made up of people with the biggest egos. It doesn’t seem to be the case. My experience is there are more members of this tribe who think poorly of themselves than there are members who think they have the world on a string.

They can’t find the divinity within because they exclusively trust their intellect. Their logic tells them that no God could make a person as wretched as them; therefore there is no life past the one they are muddling through.

They don’t seek divinity because they know they won’t find it. They get caught up in their life situation and attempt to assuage their disconnectedness with earthly events. They fill their social calendar with “things to do,” because they fear the feeling of being alone with themselves – a self, that if the real world knew, wouldn’t like.

The Grasshopper checked in on this topic when he said,

“When your life is a way station between events, you have no life.”

These people are a tough sell. They are usually lovely individuals, but they don’t know it.

The antidote for this poisoned psyche seems to be time alone. They measurably profit by a dark night of the soul. But getting them to be with themselves is harder than getting your kids to eat vegetables.

They fill their lives with distractions, keeping them from themselves. They will work tirelessly, party vigorously, hardly ever drive without the radio or CD player playing. They give of themselves quite freely and rarely give to themselves.

These folks live in a faraway land that seems far from home, but home is as near as their next quiet moment alone.

These words will only fill up a page rather than fill in a blank for those who don’t take the time to seek the animating force of their life and align with it.

It’s there. All you have to do to find it is: take a break in the action, stop your world, and spend time with yourself. It’s a visit that will change your life from the inside out.

All the best,
