Doing your duty is being true to the immediate situation in your life. This is often misunderstood in the act of trying to be a nice person. In the greater intelligence of all things there are no such measurements. One has to see beyond the particular in order to transcend one's recurring condition. This is seeing it as it is, which is not as the person wants or expects it to be. Seeing it as it really is, is real intelligence, your true nature.
