” God hides things by putting them near us.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)
Isn’t this so true? It’s one of those “forest for the trees” examples. There is joy and love and beauty all around us, and right inside of usâ€¦ and yet where do we look? Many of the great spiritual teachers answer every question they are asked with the same statement: “Look within.” They might say it in hundreds of different ways, but the meaning is the same. It’s so simple, and yet so complex- what a paradox!
