That is the true teaching.
All this spiritual exercise is to become free,
which is to align ourselves with wholeness
and let ourselves be unfolded by the inherent wisdom and goodness
that is “just there, like the moon in the window.” (rumi)
On the way, there is a lot of
to train the ego
so that it becomes
a vehicle of light
instead of a compost-bucket
on the banquet-table
of this delicious life.
Reject not the compost bucket; it has its place.
Neither walk through life with one foot in it.
