March to the West: Interlude

"You don't need to fix anything here," and "There is nothing that needs to be accomplished in this room," two things that I need to hear perhaps more often than I'd like to admit. The problem isn't the problem, the relationship with the problem is the problem. But the point isn't to fix that problem, you don't have to fix anything here, the point is to learn to live with the problem, to not treat it as a "problem" anymore, not something to be fixed. It's not about addressing the ears, it's about addressing the mind, learning to accept the ears and finding moments of stillness, finding rooms where there is nothing that needs to be accomplished.
