enlightenment is found here…

we search outward and inward, seeking enlightenment, wanting to wake up, to find meaning, to find peace. there are no guarantees in this swift life. like a lightning strike, it flashes hot and bright, then gone.what if all we needed to wake up was available right here, right now? all of it grist for the mill, to open our hearts and minds?

we only have this moment. if we are to find enlightening, meaning, and peace, it is found here and now.

“For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes.”

~Yoda

“If there’s any possibility for enlightenment, it’s right now, not some future time. Now is the time.” ~ Pema Chödrön

“I have arrived. I am home.”

~ Thích Nhất Hạnh
