True mastery can be gained by letting things go their own way. It can’t be gained by interfering. (Tao Te Ching)
What difference is there between doing and interfering? Interference flows from the unquestioned belief in your own mind above all else – a belief that your special mind possesses a wisdom that is perhaps even superior to God or nature. All interference is born of separation and identification with ego.
Doing is a response to nonacceptance. Instead of letting things go their own way, you resist, you argue, you fight, you try to “do something about it”. In so doing, you align yourself not with reality but with made-up delusions of the uncontrolled mind. This is dangerous and, over time, creates very real problems.
In spirit, we create rather than merely to do. To create is to allow things go their own way through you. First, you accept what is. Then you respond to intuition, you follow your heart, you do what excites you. If you don’t feel like doing anything at all, that’s okay too.
Mastery is ending all doing that does not flow from consciousness and being fearless enough to occasionally let your light shine through unfiltered. We continue tomorrow and each day after that.
