What Are You Looking For?

What Are You Looking For?

By James Clair Lewis

Whatever you are looking for, that is what you will find.

If you are looking for Truth, Beauty, Love, or Wisdom, you will find those things. If you are looking for lies, ugliness, hate, or foolishness, you will find those things as well. If you are looking for flaws, or mistakes, then you will find those things, too. And it doesn't matter if any of this stuff is real, or not, because you will find it anyway... even if it is not there.

You may think in your mind that you are looking for something, when actually you are not. You might be looking for what you believe is there, instead of looking at what is there. The mind can convince itself of anything. The mind can make the Truth appear to be false, and what is false to appear true. The mind can also see the Truth, and know what is false. The mind can convince itself that it makes decisions, and it does this regularly.

It is the Heart which makes decisions, and what you hold in your Heart determines what those decisions will be. The mind may think it is looking for something, when the Heart has decided otherwise, and the mind cannot prevail against that. The mind will only convince itself that it has chosen, but what you hold in your Heart will decide what the mind perceives.

Thus, to really know what you are looking for, you must examine what you are holding in your Heart.

If your Heart holds fear, then you will find fear, and fail in everything you try to do, no matter how hard you try. If your Heart holds greed, then you will find greed wherever you look, and corrupt everything you touch. If your Heart holds malice, then you will destroy everything you think you love.

Give up fear, which isn't to say that you shouldn't be prudent. Give up greed, and you will discover what true wealth is. Give up malice, and you will find Peace.

Look into your Heart, and if you don't like what you see, then throw it away...

Thinking is required to understand Truth

Split away from negative thinking. Push towards clarity. Approach simplicity. Do not give up. Use the Power of reason. Adopt Grace.

Strive to bring Increase. Disperse naysayers. Move steadily and Gradually. Ask for help when you are Stuck. Split Apart what is useful from what is not. Love is greater than thinking.
