Mindful Monday: Just allow

"Zen works precisely by not working for you in the old ego-aggrandizing ways. Of course, it's difficult enough to sit still and be quiet but not half as difficult as we make it out to be.  Nothing is as difficult as we make it out to be, but by our thinking we make it grievously so."
-- Karen Maezen Miller, Paradise in Plain Sight: Lessons from a Zen Garden, p. 132, 2014.

What are you noticing about making things difficult for yourself?
