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.

Over confidence here we come

Nice smooth easy 10k today.  Still holding it back and at the same time enjoying this type of running to the point of thinking I can run this pace all day long; which of course is not true, but it is fun to think about as long as I don't get to the point of thinking it will never hurt at all.

Blood sugar good start and finish.  Shoes (Adidas Clima Cool Ride) is going to be the shoe for this run, its all pavement.  Change in socks is good for now, will bring two pair of each type in to Ireland. 

Rest of the week is planned already, sometimes that is good sometimes not so good.  One moment at a time now.  All the arises, ceases. Anything else is definitely bringing the over confidence machine right to the frontal lobe.

But, the last two runs have been really really nice.  "The flow".  See, over confidence See!
