I Am Where I Am

I love the phrase, “Wherever you are, there you are.” But I would add, “And there you should be.” That’s the essence of Living in Truth. Wherever you are physically that is where you are and is what you need to deal with. Being in a situation or place physically and worrying about where you are going next or where you have been is vexing and sinks you in the Pit of Illusion. But when we recognize and accept the situation we are in both physically and progressively, we can deal with real life, with the truth.

All we have to deal with in life is the current moment. It’s all we have control over. Right now I can make choices and each choice leads on to other situations, but I can’t deal with them until I get to them. 

The Savior can fix the pass if I repent. He can lead me into a brighter future if I trust in Him. But I have no control or power over that past except to repent and I have no power or control over the future except to make the best use of right now. 

Realizing that helps me dump worries, longing, and vexation over the past and the future. My power lies in the moment and so I will concentrate on this moment and leave the rest to God. I am where I am and that’s where I should be.
