At the center of your being, you have the answer.

Deze quote is een fragment van een gedicht van M.J. Ryan. 
Het verscheen in 1994 in het boek ‘A Grateful Heart: Daily Blessings for the Evening Meal from Buddha to the Beatles’.

Dit is het volledige gedicht (p248-249):

Always we hope
someone else has the answer.
Some other place will be better,
some other time
it will turn out.

This is it.
No one else has the answer.
No other place will be better,
and it has already turned out.

At the center of your being, you have the answer;
you know who you are and you know what you want.

There is no need
to run outside
for better seeing.

Nor to peer from a window.

Rather abide at
the center of your being;
for the more you leave it
the less you learn.

Search your heart
and see
the way to do
is to be.

Zelfzorg en jezelf beter leren kennen maakt je innerlijk sterker en maakt dat je je beter leert verbinden met jezelf en daardoor ook met anderen.
