Buddha and Intuition

buddah quote

The wonderful thing about quotes is that you can come up with your own interpretations for them.  Each day at The Ranch we put new quotes on the quote board and I see guests walk by, read them, and take a moment for reflection. Our wise words for today come from Buddha. I have my own interpretation of this quote, which I describe below, and I encourage you to a leave comment with your thoughts and feelings about Buddha’s words!

I perceive this quote as encouragement for people to listen to their intuition. I think the “work” that Buddha refers to is listening to what your “inner you” is trying to tell you.  Listen to your senses, your instinct, and your gut. When it speaks, pay attention because it will give you clues to “your world”. Do everything you can to discover what your world is – take classes and participate in activities that are new to you. You may discover something you never realized you would feel passionate about. And once you discover “your world”, or your purpose, immerse yourself in it. This will bring you happiness, peace, and fulfillment.
