Many of you, my dear readers, consider yourselves to be 'seekers'. After all, that's what 'spiritual' people do: seek the truth, seek the meaning of life, seek the wisdom of the universe, seek the Divine. What could be a greater human endeavor than to seek Spirit?
And may I ask, how is it going? Have you found sufficient knowledge to say that you've found – or are coming close to uncovering – the secrets of the universe? Or have you instead noticed that no matter how long you've been on this quest, there appears a dozen more questions to every answer you discover? That for every book you read, for every lecture, sermon or workshop you attend, there appears more books, lectures, sermons and workshops you need to plow through to perhaps feel a little more enlightened? When do you think this will end? When will you stop seeking?
Understand this: You have already within you all the resources and capability to directly know Spirit, the Divine, the Universe, God, whatever you choose to call it – it doesn't matter. The answers are all within. As long as you continue to believe that you need to seek, to look for answers outside of yourself, you're only delaying your own progress, your own completion.
There's a newer, faster track to your enlightenment, your Freedom. Would you like that? Starting NOW? If so, then stop calling yourself a seeker and adopt a new attitude by declaring, "I Am the Knower."
I Am the Knower.
The moment you operate from this new, knowing perspective, you'll quickly find out why your seeking has been the biggest hindrance to your actualization. You'll realize that by seeking, you've been betraying yourself. By seeking, you've stayed small. By seeking, you said, "I don't know, but someone else has the answers." By seeking, you've forfeited your inherent ability and right to know your Self on your own terms – which, by the way, is the only way to do it.
The books, lectures, sermons and workshops are useful tools to remind you of your own wisdom, and you can continue to use them for your enjoyment and as helpful reminders – that is, if they speak in tune with your own truth. But take them for what they are, simply as tools, as pointers, that you personally requested to arrive at the right time, to aid your own self-discovery and knowledge.
It's time to give up your gurus and to become your own guru. Your own beacon. Your own source of enlightenment. Your own I AM.
When the seeking ends, the finding begins. So stop seeking and start knowing. Today.
