But there is ONE secret to all this understanding of life, happiness and riches galore that the better-life Brahman and gnomes of knowledge rarely tell you.
You may be seeking a salve for your vice-like need to control, a quick fix for karmic contentment or a “just add water” wafer of absolution with a room full of fellow high-fivers or Om-mitters but the bad news is you won’t find it there. Well not the whole deal anyway.
If you want to re-calibrate your psychic and spiritual sat nav there's no need to book early for a gig at the O2 or burn your soles while soul searching; you just need to look inwards. I know, bit of a ‘tah-dah’ let down wasn't it?
All the pain, avoidance and fear we experience as part of our human condition can be eased and aided by folk like us, coaches and teachers who can support you and help you get perspective and clarity. The real answer however is already within you.
Coaches and the like can help look at the “why” and give you tips on the most important “how” and hopefully get you to the “who” which is where you come in. There are a million recipes for success and happiness but none of it will work until you do some internal journeying and line up the fresh ingredients to make it happen.
Doing inner work pays off. When you know yourself, you will have greater clarity. You know what you want - instead of the lengthy and so deliciously and urgently delivered list of what you don't wants and you feel more confident.
You forgive yourself easily and give things a go for the sheer joy and curiosity of it, you show yourself compassion and take life lightly. You develop resilience and bouncebackability and see the joy in simple things. You dare to be vulnerable and things resonate on a deeper level when they are right for you and you get the zippety back in your do-dah day.
