You need not push life....

MAI's picture

When effort is needed, effort will appear. When effortlessness becomes essential, it will assert itself. You need not push life about. Just flow with it and give yourself completely to the task of the present moment, which is the dying now to the now. For living is dying. Without death life cannot be.

It is not action that we must surrender - but doership!

Divyaa Kummar's picture

It is not action that we must surrender - but doership! It is not effort that we must surrender - but the self-will that seeks to direct it in particular ways. Its not passion that we let go off - but attachment! Its not activity or engaging with life & its people and events that we must step back from- but from identifying self through them!

Truth Diagnostics

Simplistic notions of truth are good and have a special appeal and may even be true but they don't work despite mass following. The reason is not far to see. It is wisdom arrived at by someone else.

Stop Pretending To Be The 'Chooser'

MAI's picture

If you're struggling to choose, if deciding feels like a chore, you're not seeing clearly right now. You are at war with the moment.

When you are clear, when 'not knowing' is a trusted ally, mystery a great friend, and the intelligence of life is allowed to work its sacred magic in that creative space of no answers, confusion melts, choices make themselves, and intelligent action happens effortlessly, without "you" being involved at all.
Simply stop pretending to be the 'chooser'...
