Looking Within by Red, Oil 48x36, Room Setting

Looking within ourselves in crucial to fulfilling who we are. Often we need to stop and reflect on who we are and look within ourselves for the courage to try something different.

“Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all the others” Winston Churchill

“As the essence of courage is to stake one’s life on a possibility, so the essence of faith is to believe that the possibility exists.” William Salter

Introspection is a process that involves looking inward to examine one’s own thoughts and emotions; but I also think we can gain insight into who we are to help us overcome our fears. I agree with Hui Neng quote

“Look within!
The secret is inside you.”

Looking Within

For we so often want to feel safe and secure and therefore we think that safety comes from outside ourselves. Many of us clinging to people, experiences, success, money, places, material possessions, etc. Furthermore, we spend our entire lives chasing things we think are missing from within ourselves. Failing to realize that nothing external will ever bring the peace, joy, and fulfillment we seek and deserve. We only need to believe in ourselves and see that all we need is within us.

“If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never truly be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself. Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” ~ Lao Tzu

This painting is a reminder to believe in yourself and trust that you only need to look within to find what you need to succeed.
