“You are far from the end of your journey.
The way is not in the sky.
way is in the heart.
See how you love.”
– Buddha

Why look outside ourselves for direction on how to live life when our heart and Soul already carries this wisdom?


  1. Sadly, so much spirituality urges people to look outside ourselves. We’ve grown up with religious traditions which have always encouraged direction to be up there or out there somewhere. Wonderful quote, Melissa – thank you.

    • You are correct, Don. Many religions and forms of spirituality are about being controlled by a human ideal of what we should be. I am not suggesting any doctrine is right or wrong – I don’t have that knowledge. What I do possess is the desire to allow my Soul to guide me to do what is “right”. I value greatly the lessons I have learned. Something I have gained from listening to my Soul is that spirituality/religion is so much simpler than we are trying to make it. Thank you as well, Don.

      • I agree, Melissa..External impositions on us most often have far more to do with those who make them and with control. I too believe it’s far simpler than we think.
