When we set goals, it is because we want to have or be something more. But ‘more of what?’ is an important question to ask yourself. When you are seeking to become more, be intentional in doing what gives you more inner peace, more balance, more spiritual and conscious awareness. Eckhart Tolle teaches us that “we want to want more than we want to have.” And that usually, when we get what we wanted, we very quickly no longer desire to have it. When your seeking is about having instead of being, beware of setting your own trap. When we focus on what adds to our peace, it’s easier to see the abundance of the opportunities around us.
It is inherently true that “Possession of material riches without inner peace is like dying of thirst while bathing in a lake.”
Take a moment today to ensure that your focus and concentration is on the areas that will truly bring you more of what matters most.
