Discourse on Vision
“Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside – Dreams, Who looks inside – Awakes.” – Carl Jung
Seeker: Ins and outs are not so clear cut terms. Quite often confusing. Where is out and what it is out to ?
Maladkar: Out refers to the outwardly projection of thoughts. Out refers to what we see and not what we feel or experience. Any seeing can be an illusion and definitely not the truth. Outside views are illusory and misguiding. Inside views are guiding. Inside views are based on intuition, feelings and emotions. So the chances of errors are minimal. An inside awakening is what is needed for our lives to be fulfilling. ‘Out’ of heart means one is not in tune with his/her heart. You can only realize what you really want when you look deep inside yourself. What is outside of you, you may not be really needing, it may just be a want. Inside of you is your need. True awakening happens when it is from inside, otherwise outside of your heart it could be just an aspiration, it could not be what you really desire. It could just be what the society demands from you. So ‘outside’ can be totally out of tune from your ‘inside’. Introspection helps truly, for in that we realize what we are really after. Otherwise it can just be running after something which is not your heart’s actual desire. Looking inside awakens you to your real Self and looking outside is just dreams and wishes ! Buddha so rightly said “Sit. Rest. Work. Alone with your-self, never weary. On the edge of the forest live joyfully, without desire.” This is the way to inner Self-realization. With this Self-realization you will actually understand how much success is close to your heart. If it is really close, it is matter of time you will be on the path to success.
