This One Step

“[Y]our entire life journey ultimately consists of the step you are taking at this moment. There is always only this one step, and so you give it your fullest attention. This doesn’t you don’t know where you are going; it just means this step is primary, the destination secondary. And what you encounter at your destination once you get there depends on the quality of this one step.”

Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth

  1. That’s a great quote. It makes me think about how Walt Whitman would talk about the joy in simply existing, in.. “being.” The thought seems weird at first but has comforted me many times when I was feeling down or was frustrated at how things were(n’t) working out.
