suffering from the personal dilemma of being a person

for most of my life i was suffering from the personal dilemma of being a person. just trying to get along in the world.

i tried to achieve success in all the traditional ways, and for the most part, succeeded. i had all the things society says will make us happy and content…

i had a job most would admire-many skills people long for-a house people loved-all the friends one could wish for-enough money to be comfortable-physical well being-and a loving family. everything we are taught will bring us happiness!

yet i felt terrible, lonely, isolated, and lost…


something was missing and initially i had no idea what…

until i found the teachings that point us back to our true nature. teachings that point to the non-dual aspect, free from suffering.

some call these teachings being aware of awareness, or being in the now, and dare i say ‘spiritual’ (i don’t like to call it spiritual because that is a loaded term).

through these teachings there comes realization that nothing “out there” is the answer to what we seek. Β no possession, no money, no job, not even others love is the answer to what we all seek.

what we recognize is that the answer is found within, and it has always been there.

we are what we seek, but we look “out there,” away from it and miss it.

once we turn our attention back toward ourselves, what we have always sought,Β is found!
