This morning, I was reading from Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Wherever You Go, There You Are. It reminded me of a simple truth:
Life is already happening.
No amount of wishing, hoping, and praying will change that truth. There is no “only if,” no “should” nor “should not.” There is no “this relationship has to be this way” nor is there a “this job needs to look that way.”
All that is is right there in front of your face, … in this moment, … and nothing else.
When we can be with that truth, true peace becomes possible.
