This NY Times article came my way through Facebook and… well, you’ll just have to read it.
This woman’s hard-won wisdom and insight reminds me of Lao-Tzu, Krishna, and Jesus. I cite these sacred texts below, but I make no claim to have obtained the wisdom.
“Therefore the sage produces without possessing, Acts without expectations And accomplishes without abiding in her accomplishments. It is precisely because she does not abide in them That they never leave her.” – Tao Te Ching
“Therefore without attachment, do thou always perform action which should be done; for by performing action without attachment man reaches the Supreme.” – Bhagavad Gita
“So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” – Matthew 6:34
