Seth suggests in the quote above that we create the end of should by making our own shoulds go away. The best way I know to do that is to allow things to be the way they are without any insistence that they be something they are not. This requires letting go of your rules. There are no rules. There just is what is. Let it be. If you want something else, then make it happen on your own, but don’t expect things to be a certain way from others. You might even find as I have the gentle peace that comes from not having to be in charge all the time. I gave up the throne. Now I only direct myself, but without the should word.
