Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside awakens. –Carl Jung

Looking into your heart seems easy enough. Family’s there. Your friends. A Xchotal chocolate bar. But searching deeper takes looking beyond the cocoa bean.

Besides a cup of French roast, what really wakes you up? What makes you tick? Society gives us plenty of mixed signals about what we’re supposed to want. Love and peace? A nice car? Skinny jeans? It gets confusing.

But if we take the time to reflect, we know the deepest part of our soul seeks something special. The trick is figuring out what it is. To find purpose, Jung reminds us to look inside for the answer. Our hearts can lead us. Give yourself a valentine and look. Plus, it has less calories than chocolate.
