An Experiment in Wu Wei

Start with something small. 

Know exactly what you want. 

Ponder its value, all which achieving it will unlock. 

See every detail of it. Feel what it will be like to be there, to have won. 

Now, relax. Release. Allow it to not happen. 

Then, perhaps, your deep inner mastery will come forth and guide you, move you unto victory. Or perhaps it will not. Continue to accept failure with an open heart. 

This is doing by not doing.

On Procrastination

Each task you do now is one fewer task for you to do later. While you’re performing it, set your mind unto the great kindness which you are performing for your future self. 

Tomorrow, when you receive the gift, give thanks to you-of-the-past.
