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.

I'm into day 3 of the vacation.  Actually for the office it is 5 days plus two weekends or 9 days.  For me and about 5 others it is a weekend then 3 days then work Thurs/Fri then two days off again.  So really since it is Wednesday, I go back to work tomorrow.

I meant to rise nice and early and run.  Didn't happen.  Just ended up sleeping late (which in itself was great) and then did some work long distance for this trip to Oman that I have going on where I will do an analysis of the English Language Center for the Oman College of Banking and Finance.  Then I went out and ran.

I intended to do 15km, but really the body didn't want that so i did 10km and it was really nice.  Really nice.  Easy and light and then it got quicker and better  and then I would slow down, then speed up, really not even working on it, just doing it.

No watch, not time, just vacation.
