The Four-Fold Way

Among the Basque people and many Native People of this land there is what is called the “Four-Fold Way,” and they say life will be very simple if you just follow these four guidelines:

1. Show Up.

2. Pay Attention.

3. Tell the Truth, without blame or judgment.

4. Don’t be Attached to outcome, but open to outcome.
