For many, the search for happiness and peace starts with what is happening in your life – the people, events, and circumstances in which you live. The external world, if you will. But you will never be satisfied by anything in the outside if you are not balanced on the inside.
How do you obtain inner balance? First, you must withdraw your attention from the external world, stop your mind from its constant chatter by mediation or prayer, and just…be. Listen to the small, still voice that is always trying to communicate with you. When you stop the inner noise and just listen, you will discover the most miraculous thing of all – that God has been waiting for you to just stop and listen!
You will also discover a universal truth that was there, waiting without judgment, for you to find it. And once you discover this key to a happy and satisfied life, you will never be lost or lonely again. The key to happiness lies simply in knowing that you are the only one who can let God into your life.
God has been waiting for you to open yourself and say “Yes!”
Practice remembering God. Remember Him in the small, mundane details of your life and you will discover a secret known throughout the ages – He cares about it all! Because He loves you – the complete, unadulterated, unfiltered, unpolished you. Want to know why? It is very simple – He made you. And the Creator of all things does not hate what He created!
So don’t look outside for the next new thing to solve your problems. Go within and listen. God is waiting to help you, but you have to open the door to let Him in.
