The Root of Seeking

Seeking begins as soon as we feel that we have lost something, and the root of it begins in childhood. Beginning first with the birth of the sense of “I” when we are very young, and then later over the course of one’s childhood, we lose the felt sense of connection to source. Naturally, we long for what we feel we have lost, and we innocently and mistakenly run after things imagining that what we are missing will be found in things outside of ourselves. All the while, what we long for is inside of us, ever present, always available.
