Time To Stop Seeking?

“If there are so many seekers, why are there so few finders?”
— Eckhart Tolle
Perhaps we’ve misunderstood the whole concept of a spiritual journey. The term “seeker” means we are looking for something we believe we do not have now. It places all hope on the future because as a seeker, we haven’t yet found our salvation.
Tolle encourages us to experience the truth of who we are by being present right now. If we do that, we don’t have to seek anything. We already have everything and can relax and rejoice in the power of being.
“There is surely nothing other than the single purpose of the present moment. A man’s whole life is a succession of moment after moment. If one fully understands the present moment, there will be nothing else to do, and nothing else to pursue.”
— Hagakure
