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. ,

Letting yourself down? Or listening to your body?
Not run today. I still have soreness in that right outer thigh, a place I never have soreness. No cramping, I've had lots of water. I came up with about 10 excuses, but really there are none. My body had no desire I guess. What does that mean?
We've had more snow. It has gotten cold again. Tonight's low promises to be -11C. I have hopes of running in the a.m. before the whole day of work begins.
Did I let myself down? Or did I listen? I think I let myself down. Hope to find out tomorrow.
