If we really want to get rid of suffering, completely and totally, then clinging has to go. The spiritual path is never one of achievement; it is always one of letting go. The more we let go, the more there is empty and open space for us to see reality. Because what we let go of is no longer there, there is the possibility of just moving without clinging to the results of the movement. As long as we cling to the results of what we do, as long as we cling to the results of what we think, we are bound, we are hemmed in.

Arrived! But not suited and booted...

Got up at 2:45 GMT +2.  Got in the taxi at 3:20.  Flew to Frankfurt at 5:25.  Arrived in Dublin at 11:05.  Got on the train to Galway and arrived at 17:05.  Arrived in Clifden, my base, aroun 18:30.  Bought groceries, looked around.

It is very mountainous here, not America or Alps mountains, but clearly there are drastic elevation changes as well as rolling hills all over.  Looks very interesting.  We pick up numbers, chips, etc. tomorrow.  Get on the bus on Sunday at 7:15 a.m. GMT +0.

Lets see what happens huh.
