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.

Time to go

Over the past few days I have taken a series of light walks every day, never more than 4k just to keep the legs moving.  I have finished work, and I leave at 3:20 a.m. from my flat and take a taxi to Boryspil Airport.  I take a 5:35 a.m. Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt and then on to Dublin.  I take a train from Dublin to Galway and then a bus from Galway to Clifden Station House Hotel in Clifton.  I should be there by Friday evening around 9 p.m. Kyiv time.

My race number is 39174.  Its time to go.!
