It is everywhere, not just in places where people don't have enough, but even more so where they have more than enough.
Is that surprising? No. The affluent world is even more deeply identified with form, more lost in content, more trapped in ego.
People believe in themselves to be dependent on what happens for their happiness, that is to say, dependent on form. They don't realize that what happens is the most unstable thing in the universe. It changes constantly. They look upon the present moment as either marred by something that has happened and shouldn't have.
And so they miss the deeper perfection that is inherent in life itself, a perfection that is always already here, that lies beyond what is happening or not, happening beyond form.
Taken from, A New Earth, Eckhard Tolle
