We often search far and wide for answers about life, the universe, and the nature of the mind. Yet in our searching we forget to look where it matters most – inside the self.
When we take time to stop and marvel at nature and ourselves, we realize that we are part of a much bigger system than we can possibly imagine, and that the questions we carry with us are clues to the truth of our existence.
There is a famous quote from the philosopher Saint Augustine:
Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.
Look inside, with wonder. It’s where all the answers are.
