Diddely-Squat Chicken-Shit

What I don’t know! Boy, do I need to surrender. There’s a real type of effort in psychically “letting go,” though. It’s only vaguely an act of will, or maybe non-will. But it’s not the same as “trying,” much less “trying harder.”

It’s 99% beyond me, that I realize, the 1% being that I know I should go in this direction, at least regarding my own path. Following some demagogue mindlessly is following his chicken-shit, and in that case take these ambiguous words as negative. But following my own path, though, it speaks to surrender. This is a good thing to know, to recognize surrender to one own’s path is different from a not so good surrender into someone else’s path.
