Happiness and deeper meaning can’t be found by looking outside ourselves. While it’s true that what’s necessary to sustain us physically can’t be created by just thinking about it, the kind of psychological and emotional experiences we want is an inside job. It’s only when we cultivate the qualities we value internally, that we see them reflected in the external world. Whatever we think and feel radiates out through our bodies, affecting us before it’s even noticed by anyone else. We can only find love and kindness out there, when we initiate it first from…

Within.
