Searching for something

Searching for something...

(Click on for clearer picture)

“Searching for forever... turns out to be... forever searching..."

We're searching for something, something so undefined, something vague. Yet we're sure there is something worth searching for in life. Many times we search for this very important something outside. We seem to believe this very important thing lies in the material and physical world.

And the thing is: It doesn't.

This very important thing that we've been searching high and low doesn't exist in the material or physical world. It's all in the mind. It's all in the soul. And it's always been there. There is no beginning, and there is no ending.

We've been searching for our soul. The purpose of our lives.

Our soul.

Our immortal and everlasting and perfect soul.

Once we find it, we will achieve permanent peace. And the purpose of our lives.

Dear Dr. John,

Jaidon is improving well with your medication. Slept well last night, no fever so far and ear is less red.

Thanks so much Dr John! Really appreciate your expertise that comes from the heart.

Regards,
Mrs. Robinson

You're welcome, my friend.

We human beings can only do so much. We also have to help ourselves before others can help us.

Good health to Jaidon and you and your family.

Hi, Dr. John,

与你分享

你我都是生命的过客,何必太计较得与失、
成与败、有与无呢!
凡事都要:
亲近自然。
融入自然
生活自然
做事自然
待人自然
心想自然
活得自然就是好。

Hi Sylvia,

Being naturally has always been something most people look for in their lives.

Well said!
