Dear friends, The truth is that there is nothing that you do.

Dear friend, the Truth is we do a lot, but WE can't do anything,
it's a one way path from Truth to us and there is too much trafic by all those who are doing something.

Truth will unfold itself for those who enquire their own actions and only to them and for them and to or for no one else.

Peter, I am not sure that I understand you here. After all, each day "I" (speaking approximately) get up, shower, dress, exercise, eat breakfast, etc. Is this not "doing"?

Are you saying that psychologically there is no no effort that can be made to change or influence the self, the psyche? If so we can look at that.

Perhaps Peter is trying to point out that there is thought but no 'someone' doing the thinking....there's no thinker, in K. terms.... and there is action but no actor who is doing the acting. All this thinking and acting is done with no separate thinker or do-er...there's no separate me or you doing it? is that what you're saying, Peter?

Let it Be
