Within you — and within every human being — no matter what part of the world they're from, or what their environment has been, or what culture or tradition they've known — there lives a certain kind of greatness. We all sense this greatness lives within us. We call it by different names, but the bottom line is that all human beings have a central wish to be as good, as true, as kind, and as profitable as we can be. It's in our very DNA.
And that DNA, that divine code if you will, is the same code for all human beings. We just dress it differently. But within all of us lives something grand, beautiful, kind, true, and loving that longs to be recognized; and we in turn long to realize the truth of ourselves.
Every tradition tells this story in its own way. But in spite of the surface differences they all speak of the same longing, the same search for enlightenment, and the same ultimate union with the Divine. You have likely read or heard some of these sacred texts — without, perhaps ever knowing their most important message: that you are The Seeker — who was born with the purpose of embarking on The Search for self-discovery, and to ultimately become as one with The Sacred.
All these stories have been about you!
And every human being on earth — now, and throughout time — is also The Seeker, on the same Search, to join with the same Sacred.
It is all one great Story that we are each meant to fully live as individuals. And the more we come to realize the truth of our own nature, the more clearly we're able to see another astonishing truth: everyone else on earth has the same calling — the same longing — the same destiny. To know Love and to love one another is the purpose of all our lives — not fighting and hating one another over Love's name.
Deep down we all want the same thing, based on an undeniable, inborn need. Seeing this will not only set you on the path to fulfilling your own great Story, but it can be the basis of a new understanding among human beings that can change the world by bringing about the greatest awakening of higher consciousness humankind has ever seen!

""Is there anything that I can do to make myself enlightened?" "As little as you can do to make the sun rise in the morning." "Then of what use are the spiritual exercises you prescribe?" "To make sure you are not asleep when the sun begins to rise." "- Anthony De Mello
"If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao's Gift!), If you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, If you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, You will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, To know when you can get no further by your own action, This is the right beginning! "- Lao Tse
"Who keeps one thing in view makes all things serve. "- Robert Browning
"More radiant than the sun, purer than the snow, subtler than the ether, is the Self, the spirit within my heart. I am that Self, that Self am I. "- Ancient Prayer
"Because every thought enters the heart in the form of a mental image of some sensible object, the blessed light of the Divinity will illumine the heart only when it is completely empty of everything, and so free from all form. Indeed, this light reveals itself to the pure intellect in the measure to which the intellect is purged of all concepts. "- Philokalia
