Don’t search outside!


I am amazed in how many different ways and in how many different words Gurbani emphasizes that we shouldn’t be searching outside ourselves but inside ourselves. Gurbani says that what we desire lies within the sacred place of our heart.

How many times Gurbani makes this point!

But we, driven by our incorrect beliefs inherited from the society, continue uninterrupted on our paths, seeking all the wealth, relationships, fame, career, jobs, etc etc and considering as secondary our inner search.

Shouldn’t our primary and secondary searches be swapped? Aren’t we, if seen from the light of Gurbani, somewhere incorrect in our priorities?

What do you think?
