This quote is from Weekly Words of Wisdom chosen by Lama Surya Das. Enjoy!

Most of us seem to live at a little distance from our body, or at best in our head. What we seek is right here; the problem is that we are usually elsewhere, distracted and dissociated, wandering mindlessly in the past or future. However, I can assure you that if you’re not Here now you won’t be There then. This is karmic law, and the very essence of habit and conditioning.

– Lama Surya Das
from his New Dharma Talks 2011
