What Does It Mean To Be The Master Of Life?

Today I want to share a simple quote from Gautama Buddha.

“A Master in the art of living
makes no distinction between his work and his play,
His Labor and his leisure,
His mind and his body,
His education and his recreation,
His love and his religion.
He hardly knows which is which.
He simply pursues a vision of excellence in whatever he does,
Leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing.
To him he is always doing both.”

This quote pretty much sums up the purpose of this site, and what we are trying to achieve here. To be free in every single way, is to do something that blurs the lines of work and play. Don’t settle for something because it’s easy, comfortable and convenient. Keep looking until you find your passion, or whatever it is that blurs the lines of what you consider is work and play.

Do something that when a problem arises, it becomes a challenge, not something to stress you out. Imagine playing a video game, and coming across the boss. For people who don’t like playing games, this is a problem. It’s tedious, and boring, to again and again find new ways to beat this boss. But for those who love the game, it’s fun. The problem becomes a challenge.

Find this in your life. It’s not easy, but it will be worth it.
