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. ,

Worst Streets Ever
I tried out the new shoes today for 10km at mid morning. An easy run at almost race pace, no hard work involved at all. The feet still hurt from the bumps in the road but the shoes are nice. The minimal drop does make you run more toward the forefoot. The shoe is very responsive to movement and the fore foot padding seems adequate. I would not say it is a trail shoe as my work in the sand/dirt of the gutters did not have much traction to it.
In terms of how I am feeling, pretty good. I feel the relaxation in my muscles as compared to exhaustion; could it be because I know I will only go 10km or is the taper doing what it is supposed to do?
Worst streets ever, worse than last year and it doesn't look good for the city fixing them.
