“What I’m looking for is not out there, it is in me.” – Helen Keller
One of the most central, pivotal realizations that anyone can have is that self – your innermost identity – cannot be defined from the outside-in. You won’t find it in the opinions or desires of others, neither will you find it in your own opinions about who you are or what you are here to do.
Remember, your mind is one of your three outer capacities: body, mind and heart. The spirit that you are, or the angel as some might like to put it, is who you are at the beginning, the middle and the end of the day, no matter what you, in the sense of your ego, or others, through the eyes of theirs, might wish to believe.
