To be where you are needs you totally. It is not true that you are where your body is. Children are on the field playing while their bodies are at the study desk. Spiritual evolution demands your attention, your intention, your devotion to the single goal of life, to be fully aware of your indwelling Atman, your Self, and to be who you truly ARE. There is no shortcut to Truth, for Truth needs you totally. Only God can be God.
Love and peace,
