      Yo Cuno,
      Good question, We weren't there and don't know
      the language and the translation. For instance,
      perhaps he meant "don't react to" rather than
      "reject" as what he was trying to communicate
      when he used the term "Refuse". But, like everything
      in that amazing book, it's well worth meditating on.
      The real deal is one of negation "Not this, not this"
      and we then have "What IS". And it will probably take
      a great effort and perhaps many years to have this
      awareness instantly become effortless.
      And then the choices (???'s) become choice-less( !!!!!)
      Peace and blessings,
      Bob
