Via Ram Dass


So what do I do? I do my best, but I give up the fruit of the action. If I don't know what's supposed to happen, it's probably better if I don't get to attached to one particular outcome. I listen to hear what my next step should be. I do my acts in the best way I can. And how it comes out...well, that's just how it comes out. Interesting, nothing more. It's a matter of letting go of expectations.

Via Daily Dharma / December 4, 2016: A Clouded Reality

If we indulge the human propensity to understate, exaggerate, and alter facts for whatever comfort or false security a lie might accord us, we forfeit our capacity to see reality clearly, and see only a world of our own invention.

—Lin Jensen, "Right Lying"
