Is this the whole story of what takes place when a person is seeking understanding?
Do all the answers lie within? Is there more to the journey of truth than being told to just look within yourself? Is there not a time when looking outside for answers for the right direction to look. Does a seed not build itself up out of the elements of the outer environment?
Perhaps is it not more appropriate to say – develop your inner compass and turn on your inner radar when faced with all the information and opinions from the outside, so you can discern what is the right answer for you in that moment?
