      Every being in the universe
      is an expression of the Tao.
      It springs into existence ,
      unconscious , perfect ,free,
      takes on a physical body ,
      lets circumstances complete it.
      That is why every being
      spontaneously honors the Tao.

      The Tao gives birth to all beings ,
      nourishes them , maintains them ,
      cares for them , comforts them , protects them,
      takes them back to itself ,
      creating without possessing ,
      acting without expecting ,
      guiding without interfering.
      That is why love of the Tao
      is in the very nature of things.

      Then take a break. Do something different.
      When you come back to your original endeavor,
      note the rapid progress that takes place.

      Progress [even in nature] is never linear but
      takes place in quantum jumps.

      Jump from Nisargadatta to Ramana to Rumi to Aziz
      to your own supreme guru [inside you]
      and see the spurts of progress.

      Hi Lisa,

      I've heard that complaint before about people here! I'm pretty certain, anyway.

      You're in the process of meditating and getting comfortable with the
      play of reality and all the concepts out there.

      You know what? Screw everything you ever heard. If you get scared
      once in a while, turn the lights on, make a lot of noise, raid the fridge, put
      on Entertainment Tonight, and give yourself a break. Come back to
      meditation another time. You'll go deeper next time. You can't do anything wrong.
