Put it this way:

Trying to improve is futile because you are saying, in effect, “I need improvement.”

And so it is with the you that is not good enough, that you will improve yourself? Good luck!

As soon as you begin to notice and accept yourself right now, the psychological-physiological strain you’ve been holding yourself with releases, and the spontaneous functioning is allowed to happen unabated. The dancer / dance illusion dissolves and there is only dancing maybe.

A tree doesn’t tell itself to grow.
