Effortless living

The sheer number of things one has to do e.g., to even maintain a small patch of garden can seem overwhelming. Then add to it all the other things one wants to do. This is a general problem with goal-oriented behavior.

So I'm trying to change my perspective. Just like with breathing - I have no goal, no destination, just have to keep on breathing.

Let's see if it works.

Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable,
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table.
No one can find the rewind button, boys,
So cradle your head in your hands,
And breathe... just breathe,
Oh breathe, just breathe

I have found that this is the ONLY way I can live and work. No other way works for me, unfortunately. Being goal-oriented bogs down my mind in so many guilt-traps...
