Based on a couple of deep conversations I had with a dear friend of mine, a train of thoughts has been visiting me numerous times.  I illustrated my train of thoughts as such:

So often we look outside ourselves to find answers, security, love and comfort. But no matter how hard you try, you will only find it burning  within yourself. And no matter what you call it, be it a god, be it love, be it the universe, that true essence can never be found anywhere but deep within yourself. A serene place of merely being. And if you’re willing to learn to look within, you will find it there.
