“The problem is there are no good ways to give instructions on how to do nothing.”

I like this post not so much for its wisdom as for its style. It makes me slightly uncomfortable, but I think that’s because of its undisguised real-person-ness.

A lot of harm comes from believing a teacher is something more than or beyond a real person.

Plus, it seems important to accustom oneself to learning wisdom from real people — that is to say, anyone. Someone who writes and talks like this, rather than like some simulation of a holy guru.
