Spontaneous Acquiescence.

The right attitude for studying the way is just complete spontaneous acquiescence. Who cares whether it takes twenty or thirty years; you'll be naturally at peace, without the slightest bit of doubt or confusion. How can there be any obstruction again after spontaneous acquiescence? How can anyone arrive by way of externals?


-Ming-pen

James: We make things so difficult for ourselves don't we? We can't seem to accept that liberation is easier than we think.

Yes. It's just so hard to be open to that spontaneity.

Perhaps it will help if we see who (or what) is having these thoughts of 'difficult' & 'easy'? Funny thing is, James, is that if we really look deeply there's no one found here to acquiesce...

i agree james...i often find myself making things difficult for myself through my lack of surrender...surrender to the natural order and my higher good.

i usually end up tracking this back to my need for control ~ and the need for control goes back to lack of trust. trust in the fact that i'm always okay no matter what.

this is a good reminder james, thank you for the post.
