Being true to ourselves

within the context and circumstances of our life

puts us at odds

with what is required, expected and assumed

in each situation as it arises–

and at odds with what we desire or fear

in those situations.

We grow into the mindset of the culture

during our childhood and adolescence,

and live to exploit the situation

to our advantage, gain and profit.

We readily forsake, betray, and/or abandon

any concern for what is true to ourselves

in favor of doing what we need to do

to get what we want–

wanting things that have no affinity

with what would ring true to our heart and soul.

You see the problem.

We are divided within

and incapable of living with our best interest at heart.

We want what we want,

and will have it or die trying to get it.

We will do anything but the one thing necessary

to put ourselves in accord with ourselves

and live as one toward the good of each situation

and the good of the whole.

we will not change our mind about what is important to us.

Our mind can change, of course,

but not by effort of the will–

ours or someone else’s.

That puts us in the place

of being mindfully, compassionately, aware of what’s what,

and seeing how it goes.

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
—  Lao Tzu
