Your Truest Desire

What you know is what counts.
Jun 11, 2014
What is your truest desire? What is going to make you truly happy? Is it some thing? Or is it something in you? When we begin to truly know ourselves, we realize that the treasures we seek on the outside are there within us.

What you know is what counts. In the desert when you are thirsty, it is not the pictures of water that are going to help. It is the water that you have in the bottle that is going to quench your thirst.

So, what do you know? What do you know about you? You! Who are you? What are you? What does it mean to be alive? What does it mean to have this breath? What does it mean to have the ability to understand?

What is your truest desire, your truest desire? What is your truest wish? What makes you happy, truly happy? Truly happy? Not entertainment-happy. Not movie-happy.

Now, the questions that I have asked are not superficial. I am talking about your core. That, if you were to lose everything—everything...cat, gone; dog, disappeared; husband, whsshht!; wife, whsshht!—and you could still be happy?

What makes you really happy—the truest happiness, the truest joy? Is it some thing? Or is it you? Your deepest desire, is it some thing? Or is it something in you? In you—in you? Because this, my friends, this, here, is the home of contentment—here! Here—not me. You, too. I just am using my body, but you can use yours.

This is the home of peace. Home, home! This is the home of true love. This is the home of kindness. This is the home of joy—joy. This is the home of enlightenment. This is the home of perfection. This is the home of all homes. This is where the reality resides.

So, I come here with all the humility to tell you what I have discovered. And I have found that for me to hear me, I have to be silent. For me to hear me, I have to be silent. For me to be present, all that confuses me has to be absent. And when I can learn to listen to myself, listen to myself, I am rewarded with gratitude: “Thank you.”
