"The sun is the perfect example of acting without desire. When the sun rises does the idea enter its mind to say, 'I shall banish the darkness, I shall urge the birds to fly, and I will set people working'? No, the sun always stays still, and yet its stillness makes the world go around."

That's the intro to this short piece of profound teaching. Here is the punchline...

"The sun is the perfect state of being rather than doing. The sun does not have light; it is light. The sun does not do good; it is good."
