Ultimately, nothing is mine, and everything I call “mine” is even now in the process of going back to where it came from. Spiritual maturity is our readiness to let go of everything.
Stop. Divest. Subtract. Eliminate. Renounce. Relinquish. Disentangle.
Ego dies when we accept the unacceptable, and when we do it now. Ego cannot die in the future.
We think we are doing things. Ego says, “I’ve done this!” But we are not doing things. Things are being done through us. Like leaves in autumn, we are being blown across the sky.
No one can teach us to yield. In the region of the heart, we’re autodidacts.
Rare is the man who has no dependencies and, therefore, no anxiety; who can let come what comes and let go what goes.
