Recently I was in a conversation with a friend who thought the best way to live is to be outer directed. I reacted with "NO, inner directed." I understood she meant to be a caring person who did good and kind things to and for others.
My concern is that outer directed behavior usually ends up coming from and glorifying the ego.
For me, my goal is to attune as fully as possible to the Spark of God within, the Holy Presence, the Divine Seed, listen and flow out from there. I wish to be as Inner Directed as humanly possible.
