Whatever You Are Seeking, Seek It With Care

Whatever one lacks in oneself he must seek outside.”- Xun Zi

Seek things. Whatever you are seeking, seek it with care. Do not seek what everybody is seeking. You are created for something special. You are created for something, not for everything. Do not just follow people. If you cannot question them, if you cannot question their motives, do not follow them. Instead of following people you don’t trust, it is better to follow yourself.

If something is not right, do not seek it. If something is going to add pain to your life, do not seek it. Seek love. Seek life. Seek positive relationships. Happiness is good, but do not seek it. Instead of seeking happiness, give happiness to other people. Wherever you go, go with happiness. Always make people happy. When you that, your happiness tank will never empty. Always seek with care. Always seek with love. Always seek with compassion. When you go after things, remember, you are what you are seeking. You are what you are chasing. So before you dive into anything, make sure you examine yourself on the inside. Do not ignore how you feel on the inside about what you are seeking. If it feels right, do it. If it does not, do not do it.

Greatness Is A Transitory Experience

“Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never persistent. … The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him…. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.”- Frank Herbert

Greatness is not permanent. Nothing is permanent in life. Everything is changing. You can enjoy greatness if you do not attach yourself to it. We find it difficult to let things go because we are so attached to it. We love our old things. We like to keep them. But to really enjoy what we have, we must detach ourselves from our things. Things are things. They are not human beings. Let them go.

They are not human beings. Greatness is good, but it can isolate you. It can isolate you if you don’t know how to use it to your advantage. The best way to remain great is to forget about greatness. Do not be trapped by your greatness. Do not let your greatness control your life. Do not let your greatness destroy your life. Frank Herbert said, “The power to destroy a thing is the absolute control over it.” Even if you think you are not a great person, you are a great person. Think about who you are? Think about who created you?
