You don’t have to go anywhere to find peace and happiness.
If you look for happiness outside, you’ll never find it.
All the happiness you need in the world exists right here, right now, in this moment. You don’t see this happiness because you are busy looking for it somewhere else.
Stop seeking somewhere else, and start to look around and within, and you’ll discover this source of happiness, too.
We often dream of a perfect home, a perfect neighborhood, a perfect family; but we fail to see the good things that we already have.
Instead of accepting the truth of our present conditions, we live in the fantasies of our future.
Instead of feeling complete for who we are, we feel incomplete for what we want to be.
You see the pattern here?
Often, we are so busy in chasing our desires that we fail to see the abundance of joy that flies past us; our eyes become so full of dreams that we become blind to the reality around us.
Can’t we stop chasing for once, and try to see what we actually have now?
You change your life for the better when you stop waiting for the future. Instead, live this moment fully. Allow yourself to get lost in it. And feel the peace that comes from the understanding that you don’t have to go anywhere else now.
You can find all the peace and happiness at the place you are now, at the time you have now, with what possessions you have now, and with what relationships you have now.
All you have to do is first admit to yourself, and then believe it deeply, that there is nowhere to go now.
