The less we have at stake in any situation, the freer we are to choose the path that needs to be chosen. We avoid conflicts of interest when our interest is in the good of the situation as a whole. What is called for here/now? What works best here/now? What is crying out to be done here/now? When we remove ourselves and our interests from the situation, we are free to consider the situation as it is. What needs to happen here/now? The answer is generally quite obvious, and when it isn't, it only takes sitting/standing/walking quietly for things to settle down and the necessary action to stand out, in an, "Of course, let's do it!" kind of way. Live to have nothing at stake in the matter-- any matter. Be free to act in the service of that which needs to be done, when, where and how it needs to be done, in each situation as it arises all your life long. It is the way. The way of being in accord with the Way.
