The Promised Land in You
Be yourself and live your life; and you will know Joy.
If you’re looking for a promised land that brings you joy and fulfillment, stop looking.
Stop looking for that perfect job, that perfect companion, that perfect house, that perfect vacation, that perfect whatever it is you’re looking for that will take you to your promised land.
I’ve been to the promised land, and I didn’t find what I was looking for.
When I didn’t find what I was looking for, I started looking at the next horizon, thinking my REAL promised land was over there.
It wasn’t there either – nor any of the other places I looked.
So I finally stopped looking for my promised land and I resigned myself to a life of sadness and misery.
Then a curious thing happened. I found it. I found my promised land.
Turns out I was carrying it with me all along.
Joy and fulfillment – my promised land – was always part of me.
I couldn’t find it outside of me because it’s me.
I am my Promised Land.
My human experience is my ultimate expression of personal Joy.
I will therefore be myself and live my life…
… because when I do, I know Joy.
