Understanding rather than inner struggle…

Go beyond merely having ideals of what you want to be or “should be.”  Such ideals often create inner conflict and friction within (and “as”) the mind and are usually a waste of energy.  Look at your actions — without separation  — from moment to moment without images of desire or idealism.  This doesn’t mean that one just goes on to live in a crazy, disorderly way; it does mean that perhaps attention is looking without “learned patterns,”… and, instead, with a natural, field of order that is beyond conflict, beyond the mind’s (or others’) imposed fabrications.  Profound understanding and keen (uncontaminated) “observing” changes things… not stale, concocted ideals.
