Your Inner Being as Your Greatest Resource
Metaphysical Mind #53
In the last issue of Metaphysical Mind I discussed the importance of focusing on intrinsic aspirations (like growth, relatedness, and helpfulness) over extrinsic aspirations(things like money, power, and fame). In that issue I cited some very real psychological findings that deeply support this almost “common” sense notion. To further expand on this important concept I will be sharing with you a related article that takes on a spiritual perspective to detail the reasons for, and power of, focusing on intrinsic values.
Before we get to that article, here are some wise words that you may want to consider for your own well-being:
“All of you, therefore, who want to make progress on the path of evolution, should limit and reduce the sensations you receive through your five senses and start to look within yourselves.”
“The moment you go in, all connections with the outside world are broken; all bridges are broken. In fact, the whole world disappears.”
Your Inner Being As Your Greatest Resource
by Owen Waters
Your inner being - your soul or higher self - is not something
that you have. It is what you are.
Your complete consciousness is your inner being. All of the
so-called parts of your mind - the conscious, the subconscious
and the superconscious parts - are all facets of your one,
complete consciousness, your inner being.
Your conscious mind is the result of your inner being focusing
attention upon the outer world through your physical brain and
senses. When, instead, you turn your attention from the outer
world towards the inner world, you access the resources of your
Your inner being possesses all of the wisdom, understanding
and strength that you will ever need. It is your ultimate,
personal resource. Your inner being is also your link with the
universe and with the consciousness behind all life, Infinite
If you think of yourself as living your life like a performer
on stage, then your inner being is like the backstage
technician who makes sure that your performance has all the
support that it needs to make everything happen on cue.
The amount of knowledge and wisdom available within you is
unlimited. In order to access it, you only have to make an
intention to go within and find it.
Your subconscious mind runs all of your biological systems
without conscious effort on your part. In fact, if you think
about it, the subconscious mind of an ant knows more about
biology and chemistry than today's leading scientists.
Your inner being knows even more; in fact, everything about
anything you want to know anything about. The trick is to ask
the question and then silence your conscious mind enough to
hear the answer.
When you become consciously aware of the true nature of your
inner being and its resources of wisdom, understanding and
strength, you begin to dissolve many of the former limitations
to your growth.
The key to expressing your human potential is to know that all
potential lies within you and you only have to open an external
channel in order to allow that unlimited potential to flow out
into the world.
The power is within. To become empowered, you don't have to
become something new. You only have to realize that you already
have that power within, then allow that infinite inner
potential to flow into your life.

PS If you want happiness make a sincere effort to focus on intrinsic values and ideals over extrinsic ones. Not only does this make sense, but it has been psychologically proven. It is absolutely essential that you decondition yourself in this respect if you want to experience the true well-being that our modern society prevents us from achieving.
