Seek and Ye Shall Find
The Promise of an Examined Life
This simple phrase, which seems to hold out a promise to all who read or hear it, hides a profound knowledge; one that can help you in all your affairs, large and small.
Seeking is not an activity to be underestimated. It is energetic, forceful. It is calm and persistent. Understanding this to be the nature of the seeker, the only question is the thing sought after. The phrase itself doesn’t suggest anything, and that’s part of the point. There is an extraordinary magnetism created in the process of seeking. The yogis called it “ahangkar.” When a seeker earnestly searches, he, or she, actually attracts answers. So get clear on what you want to know. Ask tough questions, but remember to bow your head to the process. Open your heart and the mind will follow. The answers, in time, are bound to come.
