What if you are looking for something?

What if you are looking for something?

What if you are looking for something that you don’t know what it is?
What if you are looking on this mighty big planet for something as big as a single tree?
What if you don’t even know what it looks like?
It’s shape, its size, it texture, whether you can touch it, feel it, smell it, taste it, or maybe even see it?

Where would you start looking?
Who would you ask for help?
Would you do it alone, or build a team to help you find it?

Would you just give up, knowing that you’ll probably never find it anyway, so what is the point?
Would you fight on, in the midst of failure after failure and mistake after mistake anyway?
If you would why would you? What is the point?

And, then, what if that something, was right behind you, right where you are now, and you didn’t even know it?
Would you still go on the journey to find it?
Even though it is with you anyway?

Or would you just stop and pause and smile and enjoy the ‘now’?
Enjoy the present moment?
And realise, that maybe the journey is as important as finding that something?

Maybe you can stop searching and seeking?
What if what you are looking for, is looking for you?
Maybe you can just BE.
