If only I learn the next subject
will I feel valuable?
If only I hear the next “I love you”
will I feel lovable?
If only I hear the next “thank you”
will I not be resentful?
If only I can afford the “next gadget”
will I feel worthy?
If only I have “this much” money
will I feel secure?
If only I am heard and noticed
will I be happy?
If only I am acknowledged by peers and family
will I feel loved?
How many such statements have you repeated?
How has it worked for you?
It is like drinking salty water to quench your thirst!
Your thirst will never will quenched.
Perhaps your attention needs to be directed inward.
If only I face and welcome my emotions
I am free.
If only I am silent and listen
I feel connected.
If only I accept myself
I feel my love.
If only I connect with me
I am whole.
