Seeking-Finding

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 8:18 am

It seems to me that the adventure is in the seeking and satisfaction is in the finding.

It’s a careful blend that even Starbucks hasn’t figured out.

There is a conundrum wrapped in an enigma about the proper mixture of the two.

Too much seeking leads to too little finding. It becomes a game unto itself. We become seekers. And just like the playground prattle of “finders keepers, losers weepers,” we get lost in the act of seeking and miss finding what was there all along.

You can find without seeking as well as seek without finding. There doesn’t seem to be any rules.

Adventure is what many are looking to experience all the time. They’re really not interested in finding because, if they do, their white water rafting life runs into a rock. Constant adventure seekers are running away from who they are. It scares them to be alone with themselves. They are deathly afraid of finding themselves.

That’s because they’ve confused who they are with who they think they are. Who they think they are is someone to be loathed, and they keep running away from that person in the direction of the numbing drug called adventure. Truth be told, that scary person doesn’t exist. It’s an imaginary collection of conditioning that keeps us on the run.

Finding happens when you cease seeking.

The “strive to arrive” is the biggest hindrance to finding peaceful satisfaction.

Once you recognize that the unlovable person you made up isn’t you, you find something worth staying home for – yourself.

Yes, it is responsible to own your actions, but even more noble to disown your illusion. In the process of dismantling your made up self, the real you comes shining through.

There is no adventure seeking that compares with finding yourself.

All the best,

John
