Trying to be anywhere other than here

Trying to be anywhere other than here, trying to have an experience other than the one you’re having, trying to escape or push away this moment, trying to reach some future state, experience or event in this moment – it all becomes so exhausting, in the end. But the end is really the beginning, and the exhaustion is really your dearest and most trustworthy friend, for it contains within it a secret invitation to the deep rest of yourself, and the end of seeking. Exhaustion is simply the One you long for, brilliantly disguised, whispering softly into your ear, “Relax, dear one, I’m already here…. No need to look elsewhere…. I know you’re tired from seeking me …. It’s safe to come to rest, now…..”
– Jeff Foster
