Inquire Within
by Mary Engelbreit

Engelbreit encourages readers to look inside themselves for the answers to big questions. This little gift book, with her colorful artwork and inspirational verse, will give the strength, courage, and wisdom to get through all of life's twists and turns.
1
You will recognize
your own path
when you come upon it,
because you will suddenly
have all the energy
and imagination
you will ever need.
--- Jerry Gillies

We all face those times
When our confidence fades
And the path of our life
Seems unclear.

2
When worries pile high
And frustrations build up,
‘ Til we wish we could
Just disappear.
Perhaps some bad news
Has darken your door,
Or you’re stuck in a rut
You can’t see.

3
And you’re not quite sure how
You got where you are now,
But you know it’s not
where you should be.
If you’ve lost your direction
Or met with rejection,
There’s a place you can
Search for what’s true.

4
To find all of the answers
to life’s tricky questions,
Take some time out
And look into you.

Inside you,
There’s courage…

5
And a deep well of strength
That you likely
Have not ever reached.
There’s wisdom and laughter…

6
and a good deal of beauty
Waiting patiently
To be unleashed.
The trick is to trust
What your heart has
been saying,
And believe that your instincts are good.

7
Don’t get shook
By life’s rumpus ---
Trust your inner compass
To lead yourself
out of the woods.

The wide, wondrous world
Awaits your contribution
And the gifts you alone
Have to give.

8
So don’t let doubts
delay you
Or worries waylay you,
Dive in ---
this is your life
to live!

9
The life you’ve imagined
Is yours for the taking
When you make up
your mind to begin.

And the answer you seek
All reside deep inside.
You need only
inquire
within.

Brainstorm and Discussion questions:
1. Had you been confused about making your decisions or finding the direction of your life? What were your possible answers? How did you make it through?

你曾經在做決定時有過困惑嗎?或者再找尋人生的方向時感到迷惘嗎?當時你曾經有想過哪些選擇和想法呢? 你是如何度過難關的呢?!
2. Are you having the similar experience now? 目前你有類似的感受嗎?
