When you invest in a beauty product
when you invest in a new car or larger television
when you invest in good quality foods or expensive restaurant meals
when you invest in a yoga retreat, or a holiday / spa
when you invest in a self-help book or program
when you invest in new clothes that you don’t really need
when you invest in any form of drugs
All you are looking for is your Self.
And for a moment, when you get those things, you are happy because you have found your Self. That is meant to be, and in reality is, your constant experience. It is only because of the belief that it is something outside of You that has given you this temporary peace that you soon begin looking out again.
So stop seeking. Just be happy :)
