     Actually, the sun never stays still -- it is constantly moving and changing.  It doesn't make cows graze or birds sing.  It's simply being what it is and doing what it does, giving heat and light from which many living beings and nonliving things benefit, and it does all this with no desire or intent.  The sun is neutral and detached.  Being and doing can be natural and authentic, not goal directed or manipulative.  When I am being or doing in a natural and authentic way, I am without intent, not trying to control or make anything happen, simply being and doing because it is my right action.  When I am this way I am neutral, detached from purpose or outcome, and I am moved by love since that way of being is love.
