Everywhere and Nowhere

Nowhere is not a bad place.

It’s just the place you come to
when you no longer have “somewhere else” to go.

It’s just the place you come to
when you stop avoiding this moment
and realize that the journey
doesn’t have to do with anyone but you.

You are the subject: your thoughts,
your feelings, your words, and your actions.

Turn your attention here
and you stop running around like Don Quixote
fighting windmills.

You can be where you are
and address the origin of joy and suffering
inside yourself.

Enlightenment doesn’t involve
getting something you do not have.

It involves relinquishing a barrier you have placed
between yourself and truth.

It is not so much a finding of truth,
but a giving up of illusion.

From Everyday Wisdom by Paul Ferrini
