What is this thing in fact that we want to achieve? That state that is different from our current situation. It seems that we are looking and searching for that perfect moment in time. The moment when all feels right, things fall to place and our experience feels complete.
And than suddenly an instant further, a millisecond beyond and the perfection is gone. Again we start from zero, looking forward to the next complete moment. Perfection can’t be searched after, in fact it is something that is always around us right here, we just have to notice it.
The contrast we can experience, our desires, those are real. But if we’re able to notice, life happens now and not inside some illusion in what we experience now as another moment in time.
