Teachings are easy

Number 70 of the Tao te Ching says:
My teachings are easy to understand and easy to put into practice. Yet your intellect will never grasp them, and if you try to practice them, you’ll fail
Most of us have been taught that striving to achieve anything is the best approach to success.  However the striving often creates conflict and a sense of never really being good enough.  We are actually inherently good enough and while we of course do things, the internal doubts and conflicts within striving actually get in our way.  Allow yourself to feel as you work, if doubt finds you, let it unfold and you will find that you have achieved your goal seemingly effortlessly.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
