Success

IMG_8732.JPG

Don’t aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it.

For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself.

Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge.

Then you will live to see that in the long-runโ€”in the long-run, I say!โ€”success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it

~ Victor E Frankl

A seeker of truth

A seeker of truth
Looks beyond the apparent and contemplates the hidden
What the senses perceive is only a distortion
We all look for something that is not yet in existence
Beggars look for coins,
Shopkeepers look for profit
Farmers for harvest
Pupils for knowledge
And seekers for enlightenment,
Non existence is the treasure house of God in the process of becoming manifest

~ Rumi

Mists before the sun

You are as you were created, and so is every living thing you look upon,
Regardless of the images you see
What you behold as sickness and pain
As weakness and as suffering and loss
Is but temptation to see yourself as defenceless and in hell
Yield not to this, and you will see all pain in every form wherever it occurs but disappear as mists before the sun

– ACIM

Always within

All along when I thought that you were lost
You were here,
With me all along
I kept searching
Hoping to find you somewhere,
When all along;
You had never disappeared
You were here, shining as always
Yet I kept looking for what I never could see,
Then I realised; that this shining beautiful jewel,
Was always here; right within me ๐Ÿ’—
