A Magnet

Some people are afraid to slow down. They want to remain perpetually active, for activity means to them winning, success, conquest. But let me ask you: “Do you understand activity and passivity?” Take a magnet. Let it sit. Around it sprinkle some iron pins and needles. The pins and needles, it is seen, rush towards the magnet while the magnet apparently sits still doing nothing. But which of these two, the magnet or the pins, is actually active?

If you think that activity means much movement, then you also probably think that energy means great restlessness. Like the magnet, the deep part of your being contains restful energy. It looks passive outwardly, but inwardly it is dynamic.

When you cultivate such inward energy, you no longer need to be perpetually active. You sit like a magnet and draw to yourself the situations, circumstances, environments and relationships that you require. These things come helplessly rushing to you like those pins and needles towards the magnet.

I wish you the magnetism of inner dynamism — the energy that is creative and yet restful. God bless you with such magnetism.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
