Heyyo. I'm just wondering if anybody knows when due diligence becomes second nature.
It seems that every time I let my guard down I end up saying or doing something unskillful and so I'm sitting here thinking about clear skies while using clouds to perceive.
There must be a point at which the raft is abandoned and awareness is our natural state just as there must be a difference between striving for wakefulness and being awake.
I'm not rightly sure why I'm posting this so I apologize. I'm at a point where I need a retreat or even just a vacation from everything but there is just no way I can get away from the responsibilities of life even for one weekend.
I'm just polishing and polishing the glass and after these years I seem to just reek of the effort.
When does due diligence turn to grace and where can one turn in a beaten and ruined raft?
