We can find the source of love and happiness, and a permanent state of peace in our inner world. It’s just about knowing where to look, and embracing the encounter.

All the things people do to stimulate or calm themselves, through distractions, entertainment, drugs, drinking or smoking, are an attempt to find satisfaction, a bit of relaxation, happiness, carefreeness, excitement. But they never manage to find it permanently, because nothing you find outside is permanent.

We live in times where the external has so much power over us that we lose sight of the most important and inherent part of life: the love, peace and joy that vibrate within us and that we can share with everyone.

As human beings the one thing we lack, the thing that we do not learn in any school, that we are never taught to cultivate, is responsibility. Responsibility, not as a burden, but as a means to excellence and fulfillment in life. We all complain about corruption, lies, lack of solidarity and so many things that are related to the fact that no one takes one hundred percent responsibility for his own life and all that he creates in it.

Actually, it is very rare to meet an adult who assumes full responsibility. It is what we are being and not what we do or what others do to us, that defines who we are. If our focus as individuals was the highest expression of love-consciousness in every moment, we would not be corrupt in our negotiations caring only about personal benefit while harming others or the ecosystem. We would not ignore what our neighbor needs, we would not look for more and more when there are people in need, we would not ignore a child when we perceive that he is in a doubtful situation or in danger to avoid bringing trouble to ourselves. The world would not be a continuum of “do what I say but not what I do”. And we would educate children in a natural way, giving them an example that would create young people in contact with their inner truth, and loving themselves, instead of choosing to self-destruct with substances so that they can gain the approval of their peers. They would feel safe to seek our support, because they would see our example, and know that we live in integrity.

The world is inside you, it is not outside, it is inside you. When you find that peace internally, you will perceive it externally as well. We resist being ourselves and that makes us very fragile. The illusion is very fragile. We have to maintain the illusion to remain locked in fear. But it’s not hard to break it, and the moment you do, you experience love.

That is the madness of the human experience: we fight to have control, to suffer, because we feel like victims, we fight for love, for peace, but none of it is true. If we just broke that illusion, we would see that that’s who we really are: peace, love, and true happiness. And then, everything flows.
