Sam Harris on how we so often miss what is right in front of us because we’re looking right through it. You have to read this kind of slowly—or at least I had to!
“Meditation is like the great equalizer. You do not have to live with the illusion that you need a good enough reason to be in each moment and that things are going to get better. Eventually you get the lesson that you never quite arrive. You don’t arrive until you see what it is like to step over the present moment in search of the next thing. We are stepping over the thing that we think we are seeking in the very active seeking it.”
