empty yourself into Reality


.
.
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.
