Stop trying to have someone else’s experience.
Stop chasing freedom or happiness, or even spiritual enlightenment.
Stand in your own shoes
and examine closely what’s happening right here and right now.

She is doing it right. I am doing it wrong.
Happiness is better than this. Enlightenment is better than this.
Enlightenment is in others (the past, the future). Clarity is not here.
When I am clear…. I will be happy. I will live fully. I will be content. I will have what I want. My life will be easier.
Enlightenment is about…. clarity, love, contentment. Clarity is not here, is it true? Love is not here, is it true? Contentment is not here, is it true?
