Last night I was hosting a meeting of the New Earth Meet-Up group that I created.
If you are a fan of Eckhart Tolle, I encourage you to join in! At the meeting we were discussing Chapter 8: The Discovery of Inner Space. This chapter discusses the practice of becoming aware of your inner body and learning to feel the aliveness that is inside of you. I find that tuning into your inner aliveness is a key component to living a life that feels good and is meaningful. When you are tuned into your inner aliveness, you have access to all the information you need to make the right choices for yourself. That is where your inner guidance system hangs out. The more tapped into your inner guidance system you are, the easier it is to discover and stay on the path that will lead you to your own private Shangri-la.
I find that many people have totally tuned out from their inner guidance system. They do not feel the aliveness inside of them. Rather they feel empty and disconnected. There is a continuous under currant of unease. Since we all essentially crave connection and meaning, we begin to look for it in other places. Sex, drugs and Rock in Roll are a few of the places that people search. I think the most common place people look is intimate relationships. You are looking for the man or woman that will “make you happy”, your other half, or someone who will complete you.Of course this often leads to a big let down and you are once again left feeling disconnected and feeling the under currant of unease, except now you blame it on your partner.
Many people buy into the pre-packaged belief that says someone else can make you happy.
Let me clear this up right now: You are responsible for your own happiness. No one else can do it for you.
Happiness is an inside job. You can find it right there inside of you hanging out with the aliveness and your inner guidance system.
Can you feel it?
If you want to learn how to tune into this part of yourself, give me a call and let’s see how I might help you.
