Do not attach yourself to anything

“We try to cling to pleasure, but all we succeed in doing is making ourselves frustrated because, whatever it promises, pleasure simply cannot last. But if I am willing to kiss the joy as it flies, I say, ‘Yes, this moment is beautiful. I won’t grab it. I’ll let it go.”- Easwaran Eknath

Things take time to grow

“… Patience can’t be acquired overnight. It”s just like building up a muscle. Every day you need to work on it, to push its limits.”- Easwaran Eknath

Whatever you are doing, be patient with yourself.

Save the other half

“Do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am – a reluctant enthusiast… a part-time crusader, a half- hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure.”- Edward Abbey, American author
