I have been thinking lately that time is not really all that important. Every thing that needs to get done gets done. It is the wu wei of the Tao. That is non-action. From my understanding everything gets done. It is in non-action. It is not really full non-action. It seems to be action that is taken but it does not seem as though any action has been taken.
Ghost Dog said something about the rain. You can run from eve to eave avoiding the rain trying not to get wet but in the end you get wet. Accept this fact and do not act any differently. Found the quote at http://stickgrappler2.tripod.com/phi/ghostdog.html “There is something to be learned from a rainstorm. When meeting with a sudden shower, you try not to get wet and run quickly along the road. But doing such things as passing under the eaves of houses, you still get wet. When you are resolved from the beginning, you will not be perplexed, though you still get the same soaking. This understanding extends to everything.”
There is the analogy of the bull. You have to choose which horn when the bull is running at you. The dilemma of the right or of the left. More often then not I choose neither.
Making a choice or not making a choice. Either way you ware still making a choice.
I have read often in the last few days that the road less traveled is that way for a reason.
Try? There is no try. There is do and there is do not. – Yoda
