The title of this essay,
The Only Thing You Have To Do Is
and the title of its companion piece,
The Only Thing You Have To Do Is Be,
In both I explore the same idea from different perspectives - like taking two photographs of the same vineyard: one from the west side, one from the east side.
In this essay, I look from being, at what there is to do. In The Only Thing You Have To Do Is Be, I look from a totally open clearing, at what there is to do.
Listen: it's a good rule of thumb that the instant you notice the conversation for transformation is unwanted (which is to say the instant you notice you having the conversation for transformation, is unwanted), cease having it immediately. Given how we human beings are, especially in a non-rigorous environment, there are times when the conversation for transformation is less listenable than others. On such occasions, it works better to address what's wanted and needed (listenable) than pressing for the conversation for transformation (unlistenable - at least temporarily). This is the Zen way.
