Your path cannot be other than what it presently is

words & photo by Brian Thompson.

You cannot deny your present circumstances—no matter where you are, there you be.

You cannot escape yourself.

Since this very moment can be nothing other than what it presently is, trying to resist it is like casting yourself into a deep cavern of discontent from which there is no escape.

But by accepting what IS—this moment, NOW—you empower yourself with the energy, vitality and wisdom of heartfelt intent.

This is where life’s true majesty is found—in saying “Yes” to whatever is revealed in the here and now, no matter how daunting it may seem, no matter how insignificant it may appear.

Your so-called problems are only perceived as such because you resist the teachings they contain.

When life's challenges are embraced as stepping stones that will lead you to life’s true potential, a mountain of realization awaits you.

Know this: your path cannot be other than what it presently is.

Everything you need is already within you.

Reach the summit of your infinite potential—awaken to the beauty of the path you’re already on!

“The power of life that is buried deep inside you will never rise up until you have become convinced that you're walking the only path open for you.” —Kosho Uchiyama
