What is right effort when you realize there is nothing you can do to effect skillful behavior or wholesome change in the mind?
What is right effort when a persistent thought keeps arising, robbing you of peace of mind?
What is right effort when unwholesome will not die?
Consider surrendering any efforts to be free, accepting things as they are, stopping and simply recognizing the characteristics of existence:
There is nothing that is ultimately satisfying or fulfilling.
We are not as substantial as we take ourselves to be – no me, my, or mine.
Revisit an investigation of form, feeling, perception, formations, and consciousness, recognizing their insubstantial and continuously fluctuating nature. Is there clinging to anything? Is there clinging internally or externally? Clinging to personal states or to relationships?
Remember that whatever is arising is due to causes and conditions, causes and conditions of which you are a part. You influence positively the next moment and future moments by stopping the struggle, by letting things be as they are.
