How to Find and Embrace the Seeker in You

“What you seek is seeking you.” – Rumi

What is it that stirs your thoughts, fills you with anticipation, and motivates you to take action? It’s a goal you want to pursue, an accomplishment you want or need to achieve, or a result you’ve worked hard to obtain.

You’re seeking something – an outcome, success, resolution, fulfillment.

What you might not realize is that what you are so earnestly seeking is simultaneously seeking you.

That may sound a little out there, but not if you believe in the transformative powers of making dreams reality.

If you put forth your efforts and devote your focus to a single goal, you are more likely to be successful in the endeavor than if you only act perfunctorily, without enthusiasm or determination.

This is not only true of the achievement of tangible results – like completing a comprehensive report or presentation at work – but also being successful in developing a lasting friendship, building a romantic bond, nurturing your children, and realizing emotional enrichment.

The goal – what you seek – is circling, not yet fulfilled, but waiting for you to find it and bring it into reality.

Granted, your search may take longer than you think or would like. It may require sacrifice, additional training, the modification of certain behaviors, elimination of some habits, and development of new ones. You might need other resources or allies or rely on the encouragement and support of your network.

You want to help bring hope to those who have none. This could be a calling to the ministry, public service, philanthropic efforts, organizing neighborhood contributions to a food bank, volunteering at a seniors’ or children’s home, visiting a shut-in, or bringing food to a sick neighbor.

Your goal is to have influence in a particular area of expertise. To do so requires years of study and practice, as in medicine, psychology, law, engineering, and architectural design.

Whatever it is that you seek, the closer you get to your goal, the more vivid and real it becomes. Your enthusiasm builds and spurs you forward.

Life is meant to be experienced, not endured. What you choose to pursue, the dreams and goals that lift your spirits and make you smile, are the ones that emanate from the seeker in you.

Embrace that seeker. It’s the only way to live a vibrant and purposeful life.

One of my favorite activities is writing Daily Thoughts. These all begin with positive inspirational quotes from people both famous and little-known. I then provide my perspective on the topic so that you can glean tidbits that resonate with you.

I like to make you smile. But, just like my goal with my daily blog, in Daily Thoughts, I’ll also challenge you to engage in positive thinking, to push past preconceived notions of what you can do, and what you’re afraid is beyond your ability.

If you miss a day and want to catch up, check out the archive of Daily Thoughts. There’s lots of good stuff. And the best part is I write daily positive quotes filled with uplifting messages and positive thinking.
