We search for some other moment, a moment we imagine will be more fulfilling, more profound, more free, more meaningful... And yet, it is only when we demand something from this moment, when we imagine what's here is somehow not quite enough, that we experience this heartache of incompleteness and then set about to find its resolution. But we have another choice than to live this way. We can experiment with another possibility, the possibility that this moment, exactly as it is, is actually enough. In "Searching for Rain in a Monsoon," we are invited through a series of meditations and inquiries into an exploration of this possibility, that this moment is the miracle we've been seeking. After all, the fact that this moment even exists at all is truly beyond comprehension. Without asking or demanding anything from our momentary experience, without insisting it be better, more profound, more fulfilling, or more anything, we can discover a depth and profundity, a richness and fulfillment that has always been here-here, in this very instant, the only one we will ever have.

About the Author

Along with his writing, he is also a singer, songwriter and recording artist who since 1987 has produced seven CDs of original music including his most recent release, What We've Always Been.
