Everything becomes conditional. My progress is based upon the markers that are laid out by this world. Not by me. Not by my understanding. And that is the fundamental change that needs to happen if you’re going to find yourself. The scales have to change: that you are the source of joy. That the God that you look for is within you! That the peace that you need is not world peace, but the peace within yourself. That the truth is not at the bottom of the ocean, or on top of a mountain, but within your own heart.
