Wherever you go, there you are

Mac Anderson, in his book The Road to Happiness, tells of the wisdom he picked up from an immigrant taxi driver. He said, ‘I asked him a hypothetical question: “If you could live anywhere in the world, and if money was no object, where would you live?” Without hesitating even for a second, he replied, “I live in my heart. So it really doesn’t matter where my body lives. If I am happy inside, then I live in Paradise, no matter where my residence is.”‘

Of course he was right—happiness is an inside job. He had reminded me of something I already knew, but had forgotten. If you can’t find happiness inside yourself, you’ll never find it in the outside world, no matter where you move. Wherever you go, there you are.’ And that’s exactly what Jesus says to us, ‘The Kingdom of heaven is within you.’
