For most of us, it seems there is a distance between where we are and where we want to be. That’s not new information.
But do we accept that this will always be true if we want to grow?
We will NEVER be where we want to be unless where we want to be is where we already are.
People say, “I’m getting there.” “I’m learning.” “I’m on my way.” And I say, “When will this never not be true?” “Will you ever get there?”
I don’t think so. We won’t ever arrive unless we accept that we have already arrived.
And accepting that we’ve already arrived means we must let go of our desire to arrive.
How can we be more like the tree, which seems to grow and not protest, “I’m not where I want to be yet.”
So my invitation to us all is: Let’s practice being like the trees.
We’re perfect growing here just like this. Taking our sustenance in the day. Sleeping at night. Perfect, whole and complete just as we are growing.
We’re perfect growing here, just like this.
