Even though a lotus flower is nourished by the mud, it is not of it but effortlessly shines regardless of where it appears to be. The image is grabbed from the web.

Why do so few live effortlessly, when they say that is what they want to do?

Because it is not something you can do. In order to live effortlessly you do not do anything, but something is done through you. This cannot work if you want it, as to want something is already an effort!

But you can want not to make an effort, which of course also is an effort, but the result of it is that they are no more efforts … and so you are effortlessly appearing as a person in a world where there seems to be more than one – just like you within the context of such a world effortlessly appear to be in a video game. In other words, when you pretend to be in the world, you appear to be there but are not of it.
