Spiritual author Eckhart Tolle once said, “Stress is caused by being here but wanting to be there.”

What a simple yet powerful statement.

How many times have we yearned for something we did not have, ignoring all the beautiful treasures sitting in the palm of our hand?

How many times did we race through our days stressed beyond measure about things that will not matter in five years?

Professor Jon Kabat Zinn said, “All the suffering, stress, and addiction comes from not realizing you already are what you are looking for.”

You already are what you are looking for.  Here and now.

The grass always seems greener on the other side.  But the greenest grass of all is where you are standing today.

Enjoy the here.  And never forget that you already have everything you need. You are the answer you are looking for.
