An amazing book recommended by my cuz… I’m determined to finish it, unlike all my other books that I kinda sift through then lose interest…

“He’s here but he’s not here.  He rejects the here, is unhappy with it, wants to be farther up the trail but when he gets there will be just as unhappy because then it will be “here.”  What he’s looking for, what he wants, is all around him, but he doesn’t want that because it is all around him.  Every step is an effort, both physically and spiritually, because he imagines his goal to be external and distant.” (p.213)

Many people seem to view happiness as some faraway goal.  Trying myself to keep in mind that it can also be in the small things happening at the moment, not necessarily big “events” such as graduation, holidays, promotions, etc…
