We are born with a great treasure, so vast, so great that it is inexhaustible. But we live in utter poverty because we never dig within our own being. We go on looking everywhere else. It is the strangest thing about man that he searches and seeks everywhere – he is ready to go to Everest, he is ready to go to the moon – but he is not ready to go within.

The moment you say “Go within,” it falls on deaf ears. And it is there the treasure is. So we go on carrying the treasure with us and still remain beggars.

Your reality is within and you go on searching and seeking without. The first inquiry should be made within. If you don’t find of course you can go exploring the whole world. But that has never happened. Those who have gone within have always found it.
