Presence

“Where shall I look for Enlightenment”?
” Here”.
” When will it happen”?
“It is happening right now”.
“Then why don’t I experience it”?
“Because you do not look”.
“What should I look for”?
“Nothing, just look”.
“At what”?
“Anything your eyes alight upon”.
“Must I look in a special kind of way”?
“No. The ordinary way will do”.
“But don’t I always look the ordinary way”?
” No”.
“Why ever not”?
“Because to look you must be here. You’re mostly somewhere else”.

The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend. — Henri L. Bergson
