This is the real secret of life: to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now, and instead of calling it “work,” realize that this is play
We get lost in doing, thinking, remembering, anticipating - lost in a maze of complexity and a world of problems. Nature can show us the way home, the way out of the prison of our own minds.
"Doing good to others is not a duty. It is a joy, for it increases your own health and happiness."
"If you already know it is bad and do it, you commit a sin difficult to redress."
"The highest that a man can attain is to be able to do."
"Happiness happens when you fit with your life, when you fit so harmoniously that whatsoever you are doing is your joy."
"People who are disturbed by sickness Have no strength to do anything (useful), Likewise those whose minds are disturbed by confusion Have no strength to do anything (wholesome)."
"When a real lover of God enters a tavern, he sees a holy place. When a sot enters a tavern, he sees a drinking place. Whatever we do, it is the intention that makes the difference, not the appearance or the label."
"'How' is always more important that 'what.' See if you can give much more attention to the doing than to the result that you want to achieve through it."
"Remember what is unbecoming to do is also unbecoming to speak of."
