Nowhere to go

Our minds are so eternally busy constructing schemes for self-improvement, happiness, enlightenment, that we fail to notice the ever present moment and the reality that shines behind it.

We cannot try to be more aware, to grasp the present better. When we try to do so, we fall into the same trap of improving the self.

We could instead notice that there is no one in here who could possibly become better in any way.
