Key To Success

What do you do when you come across a key to success in a book you're reading? You ponder over it. Since I read many books and come across many keys, I thought it would be fun to share the ideas that arise as I contemplate a key to success. Reading is not just about absorbing information, it's also about contemplating, allowing the ideas to blossom within, and nurturing a seed tossed in the rich soil of the inner garden.

Location: Denver, Colorado, United States

I got my Master's degree in psychotherapy more than a decade ago. Since then I've studied the human condition with fascination. Over the years, I've learned a singular lesson: your life does not work when you oppose your soul nature. If you want a magical life, you have to drop your inauthentic transactions with the world. You discover your own power when you spend time alone to figure out what you really love to do.

The You of You

There is a power within you that is greater than the world. If you let it, it will sustain you, expand you, and fill you with joy.

This power is closer than hands and feet; it is nearer and dearer to you than your own breath.

It is invisible, silent, and immeasurable.

All names for it are vague. All descriptions of it are inaccurate.

It transcends everything you can possibly know about it.

The power within you that can be spoken of is not the power that exists; for like the wind, it cannot be caught; and like the ocean, it can never be grasped.

It is not the mind, but beyond the mind.

This awareness that is you, this sentient understanding, this all encompassing consciousness, it is magnificence itself.

And the sweetest thing about this understanding, is that it is the you of you, the immensity of you.

There is nothing more intimate, nothing more reassuring, and nothing more exhilarating than this inner presence.

Civilizations may come and go, you may trade one body after another, and yet this essence of you, this pure energetic consciousness, will only continue to expand in its awareness.

When confronted with the lie of the world, it is truth; when intimidated by misfortune and adversity, it is strength; and when impoverished by lack, it is abundance.

You are the quintessence of power and beauty and truth; for who you are is this power that never sleeps, this awareness that never ceases, this brilliance that never dims.

You are the light of the world, an emanation of pure energy, unrestricted consciousness wrapped in layers of skin and bones, illusions and misconceptions.

When you finally understand who you are, really are inside, there can be only one possible response: a spontaneous burst of happiness that has no limits.

You are the unbounded potentiality, and who you think you are is not even close to who you really are inside.

The purpose of life is simply this: to discover the you of you.
