What if our search is not for happiness but for wisdom?
What if happiness is something we experience along the way?
Wisdom as in being present in the moment, to others, to ourselves, to what we have, to the world in which we live and to its needs – not simply knowing but living out the intimacy of our knowing. Moments of dignity, of nobility, of enlightenment – and the universe has just witnessed something very special.
We may think these moments are here or there, now or then but what if they are always and everywhere, meaning that we won’t miss them, neither own them. Wisdom and happiness must be available to everyone all the time, wherever they are,
We help one another to be open, here and now – openness is the most important thing.
‘We do not see things as they are; we see things as we are.’*
Welcome to the always and everywhere.
