Within – Suzanne Giesemann

“If you keep your focus on the external world and pay no attention to your internal world, suffering will ensue.  It can be no other way, for in the physical world, what goes up also goes down.  And if things do not go down, then you cling to the ups and do everything you can to find more and more and more of the good feelings.

This is called addiction.  Beneath addiction lies an undercurrent of suffering.  If this sounds dismal, worry not.  There is an alternative that does not include ups and downs.

Can you imagine a steady state of contentment?  This is known as joy.  This is known as peace.  This is what ensues when you agree to take your focus off of the external world and seek within.

Within what?  Not the physical body.  Within Consciousness … Awareness.  It is even beyond the mind.  The mind is the activity of Consciousness, which is your true essence.  Awareness lies beyond and beneath all as one sea of infinite potential.  Go beneath the waves.  Dive in and find the stillness.

You will not cease breathing, for you are not the one doing the breathing.  Find the One who breathes you and the end of suffering will come into view.”

After thirty years of teaching Inner City, Special Education students and forty-five years of metaphysical studies, I have decided to share my life's philosophical understandings on this wonderful website. For me, everything in my life has been a spiritual experience from being raised in an alcoholic household, to marriage and teaching, and finally caring for an Alzheimer parent. I have sought at least fifteen, personal psychic readings to try and assist me as a wife, teacher and caretaker. I want to share the wisdom that I have gained from following the valuable spiritual guidance from my inner knowing and from heeding the advise of channeled answers from trusted psychics. At almost 70 years old, I am writing, traveling and enjoying retirement in Florida.
