RELAX AS IT IS
"We can stop struggling with what occurs and see its true face
without calling it the enemy.
It helps to remember that our spiritual practice is not about accomplishing anything-----
not about winning or losing-----but about ceasing to struggle and relaxing as it is.
That is what we are doing as we sit down to meditate.
That attitude spreads into the rest of our lives."
