There is really nothing you must be

There is really nothing you must be. And there is nothing you must do. There is really nothing you must have. And there is nothing you must know. There is really nothing you must become.

However it helps to understand that fire burns, and when it rains the earth gets wet.
Japanese Zen Scroll

So I am trying to fathom this out. If I understand correctly, you don’t have to make anything of your life, but you live with the consequences – or something like that.

    Hi

    Thanks for that. Oh well, it was good while it lasted, but as soon as you mentioned common sense, I know I didn’t stand a chance!
