Enlightenment, peace, fulfillment – whatever you want to call it – is not some far away, pie-in-the-sky, seemingly unattainable thing. It is here in every moment. We can access it through simple practices and unassuming ways. The wholeness we are looking for is found in patience and acceptance. It is found in non-judgement and in the unspeakably vast spaces of communion opened up by vehicles such as prayer and meditation, gratitude and kindness. The way is found when we take responsibility for ourselves.
