Who looks outside, dreams ; who looks inside, awakes ~ Carl Jung
There has to be something that all the great names in the history of mankind no matter if philosophers , scientists or psychologists they all insist on knowing the self , they all insist on introspection , they all insist of being aware of the self in order to know the world , in order to do better in life , in order to have peace .
And still most of us are hell bent upon knowing more about others , changing others , wanting everyone and everything around us to change for us to be happy , successful and at peace !!
Well , I have got bad news , unless you do your homework and do work on yourself you would not have the peace and happiness , you would not be at ease , you may have more and do more but you would miss your own very essence of being ....You will miss your uniqueness in the quest of trying to be like others , you may even forget being yourself since you are always focusing on others .
Maybe this simple example would make it more clear ....Most of us travel , we all love traveling , it's so much fun to see new places !! Thanks to all the doings and having beliefs most of us can afford luxury trips , staying in good places , eating well , shopping etc. Do you agree ?
But what is the first thing you say when you come back to your home ? Usually we hear people say " home sweet home" or "nothing like the comfort of your own home" ....etc ! We hear and say such phrases after reaching home , isn't it?
