An Old Hindu Legend..

According to an old Hindu legend.. There was once a time when all human beings were god like, but they so abused their divinity so much that Brahma, the supreme, decided to take it away from them and hide it where it could never be found, without hard soul searching work, so they deserve what they have.
Where to hide their divinity was the question. So Brahma called a council of the angels to help him decide. "Let's bury it deep in the earth," said the angels. But Brahma answered, "No, that will not do because humans will dig into the earth and find it." Then the angels said, "Let's sink it in the deepest ocean." But Brahma said, "No, not there, for they will learn to dive into the ocean and will find it." Then the angels said,
"Let's take it to the top of the highest mountain and hide it there." But once again Brahma replied, "No, that will not do either, because they will eventually climb every mountain and once again take up their divinity." Then the angels gave up and said, "We do not know where to hide it, because it seems that there is no place on earth or in the sea that human beings will not eventually reach."Brahma thought for a long time and then said, "Here is what we will do. We will hide their divinity deep in the center of their own being, for humans will never think to look for it there."All the angelss agreed that this was the perfect hiding place, and the deed was done. And since that time humans have been going up and down the earth, digging, diving, climbing, and exploring--searching for something already within themselves.

Interesting isnt it.. even though it seems like a story but it tells you all what you need.
