Water, when it flows downstream, doesn’t have a model of what it’s doing. It’s just being water, and water floats downstream, because that’s how water works. The thing that is extraordinarily hard for any of us to truly realize and to have sufficient faith to accept, is that if you stop having views, having models, planning, desiring, organizing, and structuring, it’s all right.
You don’t stop your desires as long as you stay in a human body. You break the identification with them. That's all that's required.
It isn’t necessary to give up a thing. It’s necessary to give up attachment to the thing. That’s all that’s required.
