a sensitive human being,
with a tender nervous system
and a heart that is sometimes
Your vulnerability is not a mistake,
but a portal into aliveness.

we end up projecting it outward--
a phenomenon that is at the root of the ME or wetiko disease.
While it may be easy to identify the shadow projections
of the rich and powerful and how they blame
“the evil-doers” or a particular ethnicity for the world’s ills,
it is more difficult to recognize
shadow projections within ourselves.
Levy offers assistance in how we can recognize and befriend the shadow
and at the same time,
“become more immune to moral decay
and psychic infections
such as wetiko.”
He emphasizes that
“If we learn to deal with our own shadow,
we have truly done something real
and of significant benefit for the whole world.”
we are more available to connect with others,
even if they do not completely agree with us.
In a sense, we become as Levy says,
“islands of sanity in an ocean of madness.
Over time the islands in our archipelago of sanity
join with each other and form continents,
so to speak,
as we dispel the madness in the field.”
every day something is added.
In the practice of the Tao,
every day something is dropped.
Less and less do you need to force things,
until finally you arrive at non-action.
When nothing is done,
nothing is left undone.
by letting things go their own way.
It can't be gained by interfering.
Tao Te Ching #48
Trans. Stephen Mitchell
One tries to teach others at one’s peril.
It is better to leave one’s fellow men to sleep in peace
than to disturb their slumbers.
Let not those who know unsettle the minds of the ignorant who know nothing.
How could I, a careful student of the Bhagavad Gita,
have missed the significance of that verse?
Don Juan offered a similar message:
A warrior does not squeeze his world out of shape.
He taps it lightly and passes on leaving hardly a trace.
That was it.
By playing the guru,
I had squeezed out of shape the people with whom I had come in contact.
I had also squeezed myself out of shape
by trying to play a role not in accord with my essence.
The Missionary, that babbling fool, had betrayed me.
Well, I had learned a lesson and would not forget it.
In the future,
NO MORE TALK.
Live by the rule of the dervish:
Don’t volunteer information about the Way,
but be willing to answer honest questions.
What are honest questions?
Honest questions contain the seeds of their own answers
and above that
the questioners have tried to solve
the problems themselves.
show that the questioners are trying to get something for nothing,
indulging in idle curiosity,
or showing off.
Those liable to ask questions about the Way
generally want someone else to do their thinking for them.
The rest just don’t care.
So the dervish can continue on his way in solitude,
unimpeded by either companions or possessions.
“Down to Gehenna or up to the Throne
He travels fastest who travels Alone.”
