Question: why isn’t this enough?
As humans, we are always doing something. We are always trying to make something better. The question is, why? What is it we are really trying so hard to accomplish? What is it we are trying so hard to prove?
Well, the ultimate truth is
that we are trying to make ourselves
Always. No exceptions.
And how do we do that? We try.
We try to become something.
Become what kind of something, you may ask.
Something more than what we are.
Because we strongly believe that when we become something, something more,
that is when we will feel better.
That is when we will finally feel
fulfilled and whole.
And that’s ultimately all anyone wants,
all anyone is searching for –
to feel better.
Instead of being okay right here in this moment, we are continually trying to figure out some new way to fix ourselves
and fix our lives.
You’ve heard it before,
we are so busy doing,
we are never being.
And the fact is that none of this doing will ever make us feel better. Not really, not for any long-term period. No action, no movement, no doing is going to bring us any closer
to where we really want to be.
Because the fact is,
we are always where we need to be.
In every single moment in every single day,
we are exactly where we need to be.
And I recognize that this is difficult to accept.
Because we just can’t be here right now.
We cannot truly be here right now because we feel like we need to be somewhere else.
We really, really do.
We think that we are not enough.
We think that this is not enough.
But I’m here to remind you that this is enough.
This is enough, and there isn’t anywhere else or anyone else that you need to be.
This is it.
This is all there is,
But we feel that this isn’t enough.
We still do not feel that it is okay just to be here. We still feel like we need something more.
So when we see these words, this is it, we reject them. We feel like these words simply aren’t for us.
But the fact is that these words are for us.
Because this is enough.
Because I am enough.
Because you are enough.
Because we are enough.
This is all we ever need to be, ever.
This is it.
And we’re missing it.
