Let Go and Let God | 行こう、神を捨てる | Vade ergo et Deum

I can explain this, but!
It would break the glass cover on your heart...
And there's no fixing that;
You must have shadow and light sources both.

---Rumi (excertpted)

Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.
Therefore the Master acts without doing anything;
and teaches without saying anything.
Things arise and she lets them come;
things disappear and she lets them go.
She has but doesn't possess,
Acts but doesn't expect.
When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it lasts forever.

---Tao te Ching, 2 (Mitchell, 1989) (excerpted)

... We ask God for inspiration, an intuitive thought or decision...We don't struggle...We are often surprised how the right answers come after we have tried this for a while; ...(it) gradually becomes a working part of the mind.

----Alcoholics Anonymous 86:3 (excerpted)

Welcome as a witness to a fools journey out of the darkness. I welcome all tidings - you are all my teachers on this path toward a meaningful and purposeful sobriety.
