“I commune with my heart in the night; I meditate and search my spirit.”
It has been said, only the curious have something to find.
Be curious about everything in your life. Never get to the point of not seeing. Be curious on your job and be curious in your creativity.
Vincent Van Gogh stated, “I am an artist … It is self-evident that what that implies is looking for something all the time without ever finding it IN FULL. It is the opposite of saying, ‘I know all about it. I have already found it. As far as I am concerned the statement means, ‘I am looking. I am hunting for it. I am deeply involved.’
In our lives we should be looking for something all the time without ever finding it IN FULL. There is yet more to be discovered and we will surprise ourselves at how good the discovery is. Have you ever reread a book and saw all the things you missed the first time? If you could relive any day of your life, you would be astonished at what you missed. We must always have seeking eyes in the quest of seeing more, not less. For when we see more, we are bound to see the good and find God.
And even in finding God, there is always more to God to learn and experience. After almost 3 decades, which is truer now than it was in the beginning for me.
Perhaps the search of a lifetime is within ourselves. Joseph Campbell stated, “The place to find is within yourself.”
In a story told in many traditions and versions, a man is crouched over the ground at night under a lamp post obviously looking for something. A passerby asks, “Have you lost something?”
“Yes, my key,” he says.
“Did you lose it here?”
“No”, he says, “over there, but there’s light over here.”
We often search in the easiest way possible, the way of least resistance, and that is why we often miss finding the spiritual treasure.
If you have been searching your heart in mind for an answer but have not yet found it, what do you do then?
Your search is not over until you have searched your spirit, until you have pushed aside the facts and figures, advice and recommendations, and simply asked, “God, what IS the answer?”
Then you let God bring the best answers to your conscious awareness. The decision you are to make may come to your attention when you are in prayer, or at rest, when you are in some activity or in conversation.
I will often pray about something, and then later in the day when I’m relaxed and taking a walk, the answer instantaneously pops into my mind.
There is a surge of spiritual energy that identifies the decision so that you know, “Yes! This is it!”
Even if doubts do resurface, you will make the best decision because you are including God in your search.
