Success equation could eventually looks like this title, we are always seeking for a result when we are putting effort and intention to our actions, right ? Is it not natural to receive something we deserve because we think we are doing the right thing ?
Maybe in some sort of fairy tale. But ‘desire’ will not lead you anywhere.
Thinking to reach success without pain ? Is it possible ?
Riding on a tiger of success. Welcome it, enjoy it and share your joy with others, that’s what we are all dreaming about. It’s good to remember that all bright parades have a beginning and an end. So reaching success without tons of failures before can feel nice but better to not hold on too much to this abundant moment, life is impermanent. Natural laws are subject to movements. Like waves.
If you keep this in mind, and squeeze every drop of juice out of the happiness you are experiencing now, you will be able to take the future as it comes without regrets. The greatest wisdom to keep in mind with all the phenomena in the parade of your life, whether they be valleys or peaks, have to be passed.
Like this tiger in the picture, the tiger can walk far and passes dangerous zone. So Yes, it feels good to ride on a tiger.
Today in Bali, Hindu are celebrating Galungan – the victory of Dharma over adharma. Or to simplify, the victory of goodness against evil. During this period the followers of the Balinese Hindu Dharma religion focus on the importance of living a life based on dharma. Ancestors come down to earth to tempt mankind adharma. Our inner struggle between the good and the bad and our purpose to deal with it. Hindu are using ceremonies and lot of images, rituals to express it – but at the end – that the same story of this title. Success with yourself is when you can walk in the path through peaks and valleys, and don’t let the big emotions lead you to do whatever.
Watch the oceans, watch the waves. The higher the wave goes, the deeper is the wake that follows it. One moment you are the wave, another moment you are the hollow wake that follows. Key is to enjoy both – and don’t get addicted to one. Not saying ‘I would always like to be on the peak’. It is not possible. It’s not in the nature of things.
Then what to do ?
Enjoy the peak while it lasts and then enjoy the valley when it comes. Also don’t wait to live only at the peak to be yourself, and express yourself. Find inspiration in every moment and keep being even in the dark. What is wrong with the valley, what is wrong to feel stress ? Embrace it too, that’s only a symptom that things has to be changed. Takes time to relaxation, meditation, accept to be low. At the end, a peak is just an excitement, and nobody can continuously be in an excitement.
