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.

Witness my real life

I ran a nice 10km yesterday.  Today I worked 13 hours today, starting at about 7:00 a.m., getting home at about 8:15 p.m.  I was supposed to do intervals today.  I couldn't get near my shoes today.  My real life.

All I can do is try again tomorrow.  Remember, if easy is all you have, that isn't so bad.
