Alreadyness of it all

No one upsets you, no one makes you happy, no one does anything to you. Your mind creates it all through conditioning.  Wake up! You’re already there.

Gethsem

“’That’s the secret, my brother,” he continued, “the ‘alreadyness’ of it all. You have nothing whatsoever to gain. Nothing is off in the future or out there that you can acquire. In having God, you have all spiritual goals and all spiritual perfection already. Sooner or later we all have to quit looking and start realizing. We waste so many years looking. . .””
