what our live's need & our heart's desire

It seems like we're all looking for something.

I'm not talking about misplaced car keys or a tax refund check in the mail, I'm thinking about metaphysical stuff like love or happiness, inner peace or some meaning in our lives, Buddha consciousness or contact with the Creator.
So we search the world around us, reading libraries of self-help books, enrolling in on-line wellness classes or spending an hour a week in therapy, or church, just trying to get a handle on how to look and where to find what we believe our live's need and our heart's desire.

While books and classes and couches and pews can be helpful in terms of inspiring minds to pursue a particular path, at the end of the day, the one and only place in the outside world to look for love, happiness, inner peace, meaning, consciousness or contact; is in the mirror.

They are all within you and there's nothing to find, but everything to recognize.

Imagine this tree stump is your most true self. Free of ego, desire, prejudice and judgement. That's your center or soul and the place, within you, where all the love, happiness, inner peace, meaning, higher consciousness and spiritual contact are alive and well.

This is you in your deepest identity. However it appears to you, accept and embrace it. It's the perfect reflection of all you've ever been and done in this and all your lifetimes.
There is no right or wrong, good or bad about it.
It's beyond all that.

Hold your center, draw it closer to consciousness and realize that the love or happiness, inner peace or meaning in your life, Buddha consciousness or contact with the Creator you wanted, was right there the whole time.
You needed only to recognize it.

This is a philosophy that would render the Blue Paper a very White Paper indeed.

It's funny that you should bring this up, this is exactly what I am working on right now.

I found you thought looking for things on Ky West. I've lived there before (on my sailboat off Christmas Tree), and am planning to move back this year. I'm searching for all and anything "Key West" too keep me motivated as I do all the work I need to do to get me "home".

Thank you
