All paths imply movement. However, there is no need for movement once it is clear that you are the destination itself.

Thee Temple strives to end personal laziness and to
engender discipline. To focus thee
Will on one's true desires. In thee belief, gathered
from experience, that this maximizes
and makes happen all those things that one wants in
every area of L-if-E.

Explore daily your deepest desires, fantasies and
motives, gradually focusing on what you would LIKE
to have happen in a "perfect world", a "perfect situation",
taking away ALL restrictions and "practical"
considerations. What you would REALLY want.

Then decide totry and do it.
Thee mere visualization of that true goal, your true
Will, begins thee PROCESS that makes it happen.

Clean out thee trappings and debris ov compromise, ov
what you've been told is reasonable for a person in
YOUR circumstances. Be clear in admitting your REAL
desires. Discard all irrelevancies. Ask yourself, who
you WANT as friends, if you need or WANT to work,
what you want to eat, what sexuality you REALLY need
to pursue. Check and re-check everything deeper and
deeper, more and more precisely to get closer and
closer to, and ultimately, integrate with, your real
SELF. Your INDIVIDUAL. Once you are truly focused upon
your SELF internally, thee external aspects ov your
L-if-E will fall into place.
Skeptics will say that they simply don't believe this
Psychic PROCESS works. But it does.

Maurizio Cattelan
To be free from the obsession with “what’s next?” is all the instruction necessary. You are waiting for the arrival of something that is already present. This is a trap with no exits other than directly seeing the construction of the trap.

Whatever will happen will happen. 
Just be clear: whatever happens doesn’t happen by you 
as much as it happens through you.
Practices are ineffective in dissipating the illusion 
because all practices take place within the illusion.
Thinking that you can remove your confusion 
is symptomatic of the confusion.
Empty yourself of all ideas, all beliefs, and all concepts. 
Then, make yourself full with emptiness and 
see if there remains anything else to be done.

Münchner illustrierte Wochenschrift für Kunst und Leben. 
1904, Nr. 38. Illustrationen von F. A. v. Kaulbach. Isadora Duncan

It has taken me years of struggle, hard work and research to learn to make one simple gesture, and I know enough about the art of writing to realize that it would take as many years of concentrated effort to write one simple, beautiful sentence.

Isadora Duncan

If I could tell you what it meant, 
there would be no point dancing it.
