As a river empties into the ocean,
empty yourself into Reality.
When you are emptied into Reality
you are filled with compassion,
desiring only justice.
When you desire only justice,
the will of Reality becomes your will.
When you are filled with compassion,
there is no self to oppose another
and no other to stand against oneself.
~ Pirke Avot 2:4 —
a compilation of ancient Jewish teachings and maxims.
