Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility.

Let life be as life is

Seek to know, and seek also to accept the limits of your knowledge. Work to make a difference, and make peace with the reality that you cannot change everything.

Let life be as life is, and allow yourself to be as you are. Make good use of nature, including your own nature, without fighting against it.

Learn all you can, and grow in appreciation for the fact that you can never learn all there is. Feel your strength as you put it into action, and know the even greater strength of letting things be.

When you are bitten by the sensation of need, see if you can let it gently dissolve into nothing. Open yourself ever more fully to the abundance that has always been.

Relinquish any restrictions or conditions you may have imposed on joy. Surrender yourself to the beauty of each moment, each place, every experience you inhabit.

The wind blows, the snow falls, the sun shines, and the richness unfolds in every direction. Let it all be, and live it all well.

— Ralph Marston
