A boy hears of an Oracle in a distant land and gives up his roots, his family, his safety and travels to find it.
For inside of him is a question that he wants to ask. A question that is part of his very movement and being. His very essence.
His journey takes him far and wide and becomes his life. And in his lifetime his question is answered.
There was a traveler who set out to see the world. And that she did. And as time went on she packed and traveled lightly in the world.
Ask yourself who is the wealthier person: the billionaire who sees themself as insufficient and lacking something… or the penniless man who appreciates his life and movement and has opened to see himself as rich beyond measure?
Through a series of choices a traveler finds himself in the middle of a barren desert dying of thirst. Now we assure you this man would give up everything for a tall glass of cool water. His wealth and possessions and property and status, all of it he would willingly trade for this water.
And just as the man dying of thirst in the desert would trade everything for the water, there is something that for even a glimpse you would give up all your possessions and money and everything for.
But it is also something you fear greatly, such that the mind blocks it out completely. It is the fear of your beingness. Your brilliance.
A man inherits land and moves out into the country and becomes a farmer. Despite his efforts the crops do not grow and for three years the harvest is poor.
Initially he is frustrated but his curiosity allows him to keep trying and explore in a new direction. Instead of giving up on the farm he grows close to the land and soil. He appreciates the sun and wind and rain and crops and cycles of nature.
He appreciates how his energy infuses into the crop and his connection with the land. He invests himself into his new life such that his crops becomes a reflection of his creative energy, his essence. And the land and his life flourish.
A thief approaches an old man and tells him to give him all of his money. The old man turns around and extends his hand offering him his wallet, surprising the thief with his ease and compliance. The old man gazes into his eyes and seems to look deep within him, unsettling the thief. There is a pause.
“Is this all that you want…?” he asks the thief, “Or is there something more you desire, in your life?”
The thief nervously reaches out to take the wallet but pulls back… and walks away.
There was a boy who lived by the ocean waters . He learned to fish for a living as his father had before him and lived a simple life.
And he lived his life from joy and love and because of that lived a rich life and all of his needs were met. More than met. And some saw him as a teacher or master even though he did not speak much.
Inside of himself he maintained and allowed to grow, an awareness of himself connected with all of existence.
The movement of his energy was such that he realized the ocean was within himself.
He realized his sufficiency within existence.
