We are forever trying to get there, often impatiently. There is a wonderful place. It’s the place to be. There is a particular set of circumstances where things are just as we want them to be. The people we want to be with are in the perfect place and we are who we wish we were. We have just what we need there. Compared to there, here can be a little dull.
When we long to be there, we are neither here nor there. As we imagine there, we may approach there, but if we do not also practice being here, then we may not even notice when we get there. By the time we get there, we will be busy looking to the next there.
If we ever want to get there, we have to practice being here. When we get really good at being here, we will find ourselves there. Here.
