No better love than love with no object. No more satisfying work than work with no purpose. If you could give up tricks and cleverness, that would be the cleverest trick.
Coleman Barks, A Year with Rumi
Once we have detached from the fruits of our actions, our actions acquire the purity of Presence. God is not interested in our actions or achievements, but only in the Presence with which they are performed.
Purify our actions, O God. Let us do all in Presence, regardless of how we would like things to turn out.
