How do we find ourselves? We do so by going "within." We get to know ourselves, to understand how we are made, and then we learn to use the magnificent power within us. We do it by understanding the mind, what it is, and how it works. There is nothing more fascinating than the mind.
Learn to think properly. Learn to think positively. Realize that your thought is your magic wand, for it is just that. Get rid of negative thoughts. Do not voice them, mentally or vocally.
