Ged’s ‘QR’ of the week #5


“And in this game of life, we all search for ourselves. When I say selves, I mean ‘inner selves’, the thing that created the life in the first place. Now consciously, most of us are not aware of this. But if you’re searching for happiness; if you’re searching for tranquility; if you’re searching just to have a nice, peaceful, loving, understanding life… in actual fact, your searching for your inner self.”

Sydney Banks


This is one of many thought-provoking quotes from the ‘father’ of the ‘Three Principles’, Sydney Banks. 

Some people are under the illusion that happiness, for example,  is found in material things. 

But, in reality, there’s no fancy car or luxury yacht that gives out or exudes happiness. 

If that were the case, then we would all feel that happiness. 

Real happiness resides within us. 

Fancy goods can trigger a little bit of a happy feeling, but in the form of satisfying a material desire, rather than an emotional need. 

And only for a while. 

But true, long-lasting happiness will come from within, not from outside. 

Give me loving, giving, sharing & caring any day. 

They all dwell within.

Until next week,
