There’s an ancient story of a princess looking everywhere for her necklace.
High and low, here and there and the whole time, the necklace is around her neck.
I’m sure you guessed that straight away…
But the symbolism of the story is deep and quite poignant because it’s a story for all of us.
What that necklace represents is inner peace, inner happiness, self-love.
These qualities, these experiences, these meaningful things that drive us all are already inside of us.
Yet we keep looking everywhere. We keep looking externally.
We keep looking for it in external experiences and things and relationships when really we have to learn to go inside, that is where we’ll find it.
