Little bit of me and favorites..

5 Feb

” When an archer is shooting for nothing, he has all his skill. If he shoots for a brass buckle, he is already nervous. If he shoots for a prize of gold, he goes blind or see’s two targets –  he is out of his mind. His skill has not changed. But the prize divides him. He cares. He thinks more of winning than shooting. And the need to win drains him of power.”

― Chuang Tzu

This is a favorite quote of mine.  I have tried to inculcate this approach in my humble life. The venerated Hindu philosophical text, Bhagwad Gita also says ” You have the right to work, but never to the fruit of work. You should never engage in action for the sake of reward, nor should you long for inaction. Perform work in this world, Arjuna, as a man established within himself – without selfish attachments, and alike in success and defeat.”.

So always do your best and do not worry about fruit of work, that is the only  thing in our control really..

Another favorite of  mine is from a song ” Anthem” by Leonard Cohen.

“The birds they sang
at the break of day
Start again
I heard them say
Don’t dwell on what
has passed away
or what is yet to be.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in…”
