My soul hungers for knowledge. My heart thirsts for answers. My spirit lingers for truth.
As long as I can remember I have searched for wisdom and knowledge. In gaining such wisdom, I crave more of it. With soul searching quotes, I seek what my heart desires. In simpler terms, the more I get, the more I want, and I want more insight to gain wisdom in this life.
My heart cries for answers to life’s biggest questions. What can it teach me? What are life’s lessons?
It’s hard to explain how this affects my decision-making and the paths I choose. Yet in everything I do, I analyze the moments. How will this moment affect my future? How is this memory affecting my today?
Alan Alda once said, “You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.”
I love theories. I love exploring truths and myths. In my search for purpose and my quest for knowledge, I measure where I’ve been. It’s like what Henry David Thoreau once said, “Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.”
I believe that. It’s in our darkest hours when we are forced to face our demons. When we look into the mirrors of our souls, we discover our true self.
The good work of the soul transpires every day of our existence. As long as we fight against the knowledge our soul hungers for, we will be wasting our time. Each day we are losing that time; each moment cannot be given back. What once was will never be again.
It is with this knowledge I can understand that everything happens for a reason. Where I am today is because of where I was yesterday.
Plato said, “The first and greatest victory is to conquer yourself; to be conquered by yourself is of all things most shameful and vile.”
Soul searching demands wisdom. Soul seeking requires a thirst for knowledge about one’s purpose.
There is a saying that man cannot live by bread alone. I like to think of that as food for thought. As by gaining wisdom, I may grow in character.
Then my life will have real purpose.
Love this post.
