“The only way you’re going to get peace in yourself is to be more certain of yourself and then you’ll see it in others.
That which is within you is in all that surrounds you. If you can discover it within yourself, you will discover it in others.
To get there is to gain an appreciation of yourself. Here, do it this way: Start observing yourself. Not from the perspective of judgment. Not to see what’s right and wrong, good and bad, you do way too much of that anyway.
Simply from the perspective of observation.
Observe your thoughts, your feelings, your actions, your desires, your choices, your interactions with others. Observe that which makes you sad and that which makes you happy. That which gives you joy and pleasure and that which gives you sorrow and pain. Observe it all.
And what you’ll find is that as you observe this, you’ll gain an appreciation of yourself. It’ll come. It’s not something that you’ll wake up one morning and say, ‘Ah.’ It’ll actually be a gentle movement towards self-appreciation. And as you move towards this self appreciation, you’ll find the peace you’re looking for in your life.”
