“For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. Happiness is a journey, not a destination.” Souza
I found tihs quote while perusing a site for Quotable Cards and I had to save it immediately because this is exactly what I tried to explain to Tom today. This is a taoist principle and something I try not to forget. I remember feeling this way too, sometimes I still get caught up in the perspective that I am just waiting for life to start happening...and then I look back and say 'Hey, wait a minute...' Life is the obstacles. Happiness is the journey. mmmmmmmm.
