A tree does not shed bark; there is no act of shedding. The tree expands, the bark falls away, returns to the ground and dissolves into nutrients for the tree to expand further. As awareness expands, “letting go” happens.
The tree doesn’t say, “does my bum look too big in this bark”, it merely grows and the bark is no longer relevant.
Let nature take its course, be earnest in the ever-expanding vast awareness of this very moment, without the need for achievement, as achievement only ever lies in the future. Where the rubber meets the road, i.e. where the Absolute and the Relative meet, there is only potential.
