As a lifetime seeker, I recognize now that I used to spend A LOT of time lost. I was always looking, searching, seeking, hunting, questing and on the lookout for me, my purpose, my passion – really, my life. What I failed to realize is, the whole time it was all right there. But I wasn’t.

I liken this to that Zen proverb, “Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.”

When you are seeking something, you are trying to be “over there.” We judge where we are, citing a million reasons it’s not good enough and why we think the grass is going to be better “over there.” What I have learned is the only way to get “over there” is to first come into alignment with what is RIGHT HERE. “Lay down your sword,” I say. Lay down the resistance and the judgement and stop fighting and BE where you’re at. And let that be okay.

Bringing your consciousness and a higher level of awareness into everything you do makes it more enjoyable. This is a natural result of BEING in the flow of life, rather than pushing against it. Swap out chopping wood and carrying water with sitting in traffic and you can understand the metaphor.

Being where you’re at, requires presence. It requires acceptance. It might also require surrender. It looks like experiencing “what is” and in that joy can unfold because you let go of your judgement. This doesn’t mean you become complacent or settle for less, it means you stop fracturing your energy and your attention and ground yourself where you are, so you can stand on solid footing, positioning yourself to take the next step.
