It’s so simple

14 October 2008

It’s so simple that it’s difficult to fathom. One thing you do not want, enlightenment-wise, is to act like a zen master. The whole point is to stop acting and to be. Who are you supposed to be? Whoever you are and that includes you with all your failings. Once you stop trying to pretend that you are someone you are not, growth can happen.

Most people do, in fact, grow. And I imagine it happens because most of us don’t manage to pretend to be someone we’re not 100% of the time. When we fail at it, that’s when the growth gets to occur.
