From Mark Nepo – The Book of Awakening:
“Mysterious as it is – no matter our pain or excitement, our drama or circumstance – all that we could hope for is here. We lack nothing.
The humble challenge of being human in not in agreeing or disputing this truth. That is as fruitless as arguing against gravity. Our humble way, if we can open it, is to root ourselves beneath the thousand dreams and excuses that keep us from the ground we walk. Time and again, we are asked to outlast what we want and hope for, in order to see what’s there. It is enough.”
A good phrase – “the thousand dreams and excuses that keep us from the ground we walk.”
