“The flower invites the butterfly with no-mind;

The butterfly visits the flower with no-mind.

The flower opens, the butterfly comes;

The butterfly comes, the flower opens.”

Ryokan

Acceptance seems to be the theme and how simple it can be when you go beyond the mind.

Things happen effortlessly without mind, often we as humans think we are so clever in making things happen with our minds.  Yet the happening has happened as it was always meant to happen, mind or no-mind.

Why not allow and accept the happenings of life?

It takes more effort to hold on than to let go, and it is effortless to allow (acceptance).
