No time to say hello goodbye, etc.
All of the things I do are converging this week, and taking an “I am not adulting today” day yesterday didn’t help anything but my head, the most important thing.
Here is a “I don’t have time and I refuse to skip a day” offering. Don’t think. Just do. Onward.
Perfectly this morning, I was tagged in and posted on Facebook, a lovely blog offering “The Imprinting of the Work on Your Soul” which talks about the process being the path and the way, about not getting attached to outcome. In only the past few years, I have begun to learn the importance of this – creating with no expectations of perfection, even adequacy, recognition or income. It’s VERY freeing.
Here is an excerpt – it is so much the essence of Art Every Day for me, I had to share:
from the Bhagavad Gita is one of them:
“You have the right to work, but for the work’s sake only. You have no right to the fruits of work. Desire for the fruits of work must never be your motive in working. Never give way to laziness, either.
Perform every action with your heart fixed on the Supreme Lord. Renounce attachment to the fruits. Be even tempered in success and failure; for it is this evenness of temper which is meant by yoga.
Work done with anxiety about results is far inferior to work done without such anxiety, in the calm of self-surrender. Seek refuge in the knowledge of Brahman. They who work selfishly for results are miserable.”
