What needs to happen right here, right now? That is the question we take with us into every situation as it arises-- into each moment in every situation as it arises. Not, "What do I want to happen?" What needs to happen? Wanting/Wants/Desire/Desiring have us where we are. How many of us want to be where we are? That's what I'm saying. We wanted ourselves right here, right now. And we want to be somewhere else, some way else. Wanting cannot be trusted to know what needs to be known and to do what needs to be done. Wanting is escapist. Wanting is a diversion, a distraction. What needs to be done? That is the question. And we need to be right about it. And we need to do it. Moment by moment, situation by situation. Ah, but. Who is to say? Who says so? Who knows? We do. We see. We know. We say. We do. And, we have to be right about it. That is all there is to it Knowing what needs to be done. Being right about it. Doing it. In each situation as it arises. Is all there is to it. How do we do it? See. Hear. Understand. Ask the questions that beg to be asked. Say the things that cry out to be said. Know what's what by knowing what we know about what's what, and acting spontaneously, one might say, "Thoughtlessly," from the heart in doing what is called for, what is appropriate to the occasion, in each situation as it arises, without waiting to be sure we know what we are doing-- just trusting that it is so-- situation after situation all our life long. Trusting ourselves to get better at it over time. That's all there is to it. Beginning right here. Right now.
