looking out

no need for anything other than acceptance

The heart of the path is so simple. No need for long explanations. Give up clinging to love and hate, just rest with things as they are. That is all I do in my own practice.

Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself in to anything. Do not be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. When you walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing.

...it all comes back to this -- just let it all be. Step over here where it is cool, out of the battle. Why not give it a try? Do you dare?

--Ajahn Chah, from the book A Still Forest Pool, published by Quest Books
