Non-questioning -

Candice sends this today.  She found it appropriate, as do I.

From an article by Adyashanti, "The Awakened Way."

"The only thing that will move you is the same thing
that moves a leaf hanging from a tree. It's simply
because the breeze blows that way. So you always know
what to do: The breeze blows that way, and that's the
way you go. You don't evaluate why the breeze is
blowing that way because you know that you don't know
why. There's never been a leaf anywhere that knows why
the wind blows that way on that day at that moment.
That breeze changes the orientation of your life,
moment to moment to moment, simply because that's the
way life's moving. And when you're living in your
awakened self you have no argument with the way it's
moving because it is the same as you are. And you know
that the breeze was always there, from the beginning,
and that it wasn't reserved for special people.

Truth never explains why it's moving that way at that
moment. And if you ask, it won't give any information.
It would be like a leaf asking the wind, "Why are you
moving that way right now?" The question doesn't make
any sense to the wind."
