It's a hard journey for each of us to learn that if we touch one thing completely, it will give us access to everything. We run all over the world, trying to achieve as much as possible, to love as many people as possible, to go as many places as possible, to have as many conversations as possible, to save as much as possible or spend as much as possible. But sooner or later, beyond all seeking, we run into some obstacle or light, are stunned, knocked down. And once on our knees, we finally stop, our face toward the Earth, to touch where we are, to feel where we are, to know we are here and all that this means.
