Make no effort, Jesus said, pointing to a flower. Musician and memoirist Booker T. Jones, 74, follows through: “I don’t put any effort into trying to make music my thing. It just happens.”
All that’s necessary is to want what happens. Herein the flower of peace, the death of desire.
The work that I do is secondary; how I do it is primary.
Life will do what needs to be done. We are the acted upon.
When we’re aware of the breath, we’re aligned with Life’s most foundational aspect.
