Letting things be what they need to be, and listening, looking, watching, seeing, feeling, sensing, knowing, doing what that is is an amazing practice in and of itself. Where does thinking come in? Not very high on the list. Thinking has to do with contriving, scheming, posturing, positioning, engineering, orchestrating, devising, concocting, you know, like that. The way life is generally lived, doing this so that will happen. Not, doing this so this will happen. We live in this moment so that moment will be better. How about living in this moment so this moment will be better? Doing now what needs to be done now for the sake of now? With no ulterior motive in mind? With nothing in mind? With a completely blank mind? Responding only to what is called for, now? How long since we lived like that?
