Until we realize the Self, we are seekers in one way or another.
We start the journey seeking peace and happiness in objects, in relationships and in worldly situations.
Eventually, via grace, we turn inward and start to contemplate causeless peace and happiness.
It’s a long journey from here to here.
An inevitable journey that we are all engaged in.
Sooner or later we discover that the happiness that we seek is That which we are.
