      Those who are awake live in a constant state of amazement.
      - Jack Kornfield


      The body trembles,
      The tongue falters,
      The mind is weary.
      Forsaking them all,
      I pursue my purpose happily.
      Knowing I do nothing,
      I do whatever comes my way,
      And I am happy.
      - Ashtavakra Gita 13:2-3

      Translation by Thomas Byrom
      via Along The Way

      "The more evolved you become, the more compassionate you
      become, the more you show loving kindness to everything, to the
      mineral kingdom, to the vegetable kingdom, to the animal
      kingdom, and to the human kingdom. You show total compassion,
      loving kindness. You become an embodiment of love simply
      because everything is you."

      Psalms 15
      Lord, who can be trusted with power,
      and who may act in your place?
      Those with a passion for justice,
      who speak the truth from their hearts;
      who have let go of selfish interests
      and grown beyond their own lives;
      who see the wretched as their family
      and the poor as their flesh and blood.
      They alone are impartial
      and worthy of the people's trust.
      Their compassion lights up the whole earth,
      and their kindness endures forever.
      (A Book of Psalms, translations by Stephen Mitchell)

      "Who sets the example? Why should a liberated man necessarily
      follow conventions? The moment he becomes predictable, he
      cannot be free. His freedom lies in his being free to fulfill the need
      of the moment, to obey the necessity of the situation."

      The wise person, therefore, does really not look to change
      anything. They become quiet. They have patience. They work on
      themselves. They watch their thoughts, watch their actions and
      observe themselves getting angry, observe themselves getting
      depressed, observe themselves getting jealous and envious and the
      rest of it. Little by little they realize, "That's not me. That's hypnosis.
      That's a lie." They do not react to their condition. To the extent
      that they do not react to their conditions, to that extent do they
      become free. They no longer care what anybody else is doing.
      They compare themselves with no one. They compete with no one.
      They simply watch themselves. They observe themselves. They see
      the mental confusion. They don't run around shouting, "I am
      absolute reality. I am God. I am consciousness." Rather, they see
      where they're coming from and they leave everything else alone.

      Begone elitist spiritual dogma. Begone hypocrisy. Begone judging
      others. Begone hitting yourself on the head. Begone punishing
      yourself and others. Begone comparing. Begone boxing. Begone
      thinking you are better or worse or the same. Begone horribleness.
      Begone wagging your finger. Begone all that pain and sense of not
      good enoughness. Begone trying to prove . Begone forcing.
      Begone pushing. Begone contortion. Begone wanting to follow.
      Begone wanting to be followed. Begone everything that gets in the
      way of your loving. Begone everything that gets in the way of your
      natural peace.

      She let go. She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.
      She let go of the fear. She let go of the judgments. She let go of
      the confluence of opinions swarming around her head. She let go
      of the committee of indecision within her. She let go of all the
      'right' reasons. Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry,
      she just let go. She didn't ask anyone for advice. She didn't read a
      book on how to let go. She didn't search the scriptures. She just let
      go. She let go of all of the memories that held her back. She let go
      of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward. She let go
      of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just
      right. She didn't promise to let go. She didn't journal about it. She
      didn't write the projected date in her Day-Timer. She made no
      public announcement and put no ad in the paper. She didn't check
      the weather report or read her daily horoscope. She just let go.
      She didn't analyze whether she should let go. She didn't call her
      friends to discuss the matter. She didn't do a five-step Spiritual
      Mind Treatment. She didn't call the prayer line. She didn't utter
      one word. She just let go. No one was around when it happened.
      There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or
      praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree,
      she just let go. There was no effort. There was no struggle. It
      wasn't good and it wasn't bad. It was what it was, and it is just
      that. In the space of letting go, she let it all be. A small smile came
      over her face. A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and
      the moon shone forevermore…"
