What Each Must Seek{Inspirational Quote Of The Week}


The Light Within

What each must seek in his life never was on land or sea.

It is something out of his own unique potentiality for experience,

something that never has been and never could have been

experienced by anyone else.

-Joseph Campbell-

  1. Hi, Zeenat! This reminds me of something I read a long time ago that said, “You are the ONLY person whose business it is to spin this particular cocoon.” I usually like to focus on the things we all have in common, but it’s important to remember the ways in which we each are unique as well. It is those details that start to hint at the gifts we can bring to the world.

    Have a Wonderful Weekend!!

    • Hi Lisis,
      That is so true. We often get close to people with whom we think we have things in common but in the end its our differences, uniqueness and individuality that actually make the camaraderie blossom.
      You have a great weekend too!
      Lots of love.

  2. Nice post! Yes, I totally agree that what we seek is right within us and not outside. The day we start to look within, we are getting closer to our source and closer to eternal bliss. Meditation is the art of looking within. Keep up the great posts!

    • Hi Vijay,
      I like it that your Gravatar has your picture now ๐Ÿ™‚
      And “Eternal Bliss” is exactly what we all are seeking. Prayer, Meditation, Faith and Belief in yourself help in the journey towards finding your soul and are the ways we can try to achieve eternal Bliss.
      Meditation is definitely very very helpful. I cant function one day without my Pranayam.
      Glad you liked the post ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. You have done it again , Zeenat. The quote is beautiful and inspiring.

    We are responsible for our self and how the world sees us. Loving yourself makes it possible to love and understand others as your brothers and sisters.

    Have a great weekend sweetie !

  4. This is exactly why we never need compare ourselves or our experiences to others. You and I only need to celebrate the unique individuals we are. No one has my thumb print, foot print, voice print etc.

    • HI Tess,
      You have said it so beautifully…our uniqueness is indeed our print we leave behind in this world. Believing in our own individuality can lead us to heights of greatness spiritually and make us more Humane and kind to all those around us.

  5. hi! I loved this quote and it’s filled with such truth.

  6. Zeenat, this is lovely. That we are unique in all the world is something we have that no one else ever has or ever will. That’s awesome!

    • Hi Stephen,
      It is really awesome isnt it. We all keep thinking we have to be like someone else…forgetting our own uniqeness and individuality…We all truly need to believe we are special and have something special to offer.

  7. Our uniqueness is a gift, a very special one that allows us to create uniquely even if there are so many of us. It is mind blowing to think about it and how clever that is.
    You can see that we all blog and yet we all have our own flavor and slant and that is why there is no need to compete, feel lack or be jealous.
    Zeenat, thank you for this lovely quote that makes me very grateful to be alive.
    Lots of love to you, Wilma.

    • Hi Wilma,
      Exactly….no need to feel jealous or competitive…we are all unique and that uniqueness just flows out of us so naturally if we let it.
      And to me your new take on Integrity in your latest post was just brilliant and then Ann Marie’s take before that was so brilliant as well…….same topic but such different and colorful perspectives. Isnt it a pleasure to be unique and realize it? Your blog is my latest Unique hang out ๐Ÿ™‚
      Lots of love to you too Wilma.

  8. Ah! beautiful quote. No two lives are the same, then why should we try to live it in the same manner. Live … as you must.

  9. Wonderful quote. Joseph Campbell was wise beyond this world. Thanks for posting this.

  10. What a fantastic quote! I love Joseph Campbell and have always found his words to be totally inspiring and empathetic to the human condition.
    Reading this reminds me that I am here with a mission, and no one else can fulfill it but me. I am necessary!
    Thank you, Zeenat!

  11. Love the thoughts shared here. The quote reminds people how nothing is like personal experience. You grow to sense things on different levels even if you have no words to accurately describe them.

    • Hi Liara,
      Nice to see you here ๐Ÿ™‚
      Very true what you say….and even though we all might think we are similar to one another we are yet still so different and unique.
      Thank you for your lovely comment.

  12. Hi Zeenat,

    What a lovely quote, and a great reminder for all of us to celebrate our own individuality as well as the individuality of others.

    Thank you!

    • Hi Barbara,
      Am glad you liked this quote. It is indeed a reminder to celebrate and believe in our own individuality and uniqueness.
      I love seeing your smiley face here ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you for stopping by.

  13. The seeking. The surrendering. The peace. It really is all inside of us yes, efch of us on our journeys. And there for the taking should we be brave enough.
