We already are what we seek, and that’s why we seek it.
Some – including Adyashanti – point this out. What does it mean?
We already are whole, peace, love, contentment.
We sometimes don’t recognize it (as what we are), so we seek it in all the ways we see in our own life and that of others. (Through circumstances, people, experiences…. food, vacations, lovers, money, status, identities, spiritual experiences, and more.)
I know this may sound nonsensical, but it’s how it seems. We wouldn’t seek it unless we weren’t it already.
One way to test this is to ask myself a question:
Is it true that what I seek is not already here?
It may appear to be here in the way I think I want it, but does that mean it’s not already here?
– already are…. whole, peace, love….
– don’t recognize it (as what we are), so seek it…. in all the ways we see in our own life and the world
